Mkonge Hotel
Ranked #8 of 13 Tanga B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 May 2017

For the price of the room you will expect more......it was very poor.....
The whole hotel gives the impression...it will close in the next days for renovations....
Breakfast was catastrophic......
The hotel will not see me again...only for the local rate...but not for the foreigners rate....sorry no way.....
I wish you all the best...and hope it will better....because the hotel them self is a great building, and does not deserve to be treated like that from the management......

Room Tip: Garden view...ask for it....

Back at Mkonge hotel after some years was a great disappointment. Last time we enjoyed our stay immensely. This time there was a lot to be wanted.
The room had a strong unpleasant smell like old socks. The ac barely cooled the room to a comfortable temperature. Towels and bedsheets were worn and in one bed in our twin room they were not even clean.
The pool had yellowish murky water.
I say all this with sadness as the old colonial style main building set in a big green garden has such great potential. The dining area with a terrace has a nice breeze from the sea and a spectacular view over the harbour inlet where big ships lay anchored.
The restaurant offers European, Indian and Chinese dishes. They are delicious, but be prepared to wait a long time.
My hope is that we just had bad luck to get the worst maintained room, because I want this to be a nice place at a midrange price. I give it the rating I do because the building, garden, view and their food is worth a visit.
Please, someone, bring this great place back to its former glory!

We went here for an evening meal. And to be honest, it was the worst indian meal we have ever had and would never want to eat here again. There was no taste in any of the dishes we had ordered and not value for money at all. The mosquitoes were terrible.

The setting of the Mkonge is beautiful. However from the moment of arrival the service was unfriendly (apart from the room maid who was most friendly and accommodating). The rooms are adequate but the bathrooms dated.
