Nice staff and clean hotel.
We had a lovely stay in the Hotel with nice staff and clean rooms and other areas! The only thing that made us upset was the apparent extra fee that was $9/night/person extra charge that wasn't written or included in This was greatly disappointing because the room was $18/night and this extra tax made it dubble the price which is an extreme increase and surprise when not mentioned in the booking (apparently this tax is addes in but not Hopefully this will be mentioned in the future with additional tax to pay in hotel. Other than that we loved the place and gice it a 5 star because of the nice and helpful staff and clean ac room.

A mediocre place
The hotel entrance and reception not inviting. The rooms are small to normal size, clean but worn out. There is no mattress but foam. Internet service exists but very slow. Breakfast is ok. No fresh coffee or tea though, they come in tea bags here. The nearby mosque can be a nuisance at sunrise specially on your first day after an 8 hour flight. On arrival we were offered a triple room for about three hours until we were appointed to our reserved rooms. The best excuse was that the people staying in those rooms had not arrived to pick up their staff. In my opinion, the hotel is overpriced for what you get. There are nicer places nearby in similar prices.

We experienced a welcoming atmosphere from all the staff and more from Wilson and Fatima. The location is perfect if you travel with the ferry from Dar Es Salam.

You Want economy, You Get a 2 star Hotel
I have stayed here several times, and continue to occasionally becasue of friendships I have formed with staff members. The staff are always helpful and polite. The hotel is a 2 star, in a noisy part of the city, but an excellent locartion near to the ferry port. THe rooms are very basic, and it is likelt that something does not working a room on a given day. The price is hard to beat, though.
