I would have give a five star but we couldn’t use the pool for as long as we were there. It was so cold and we kept asking when they were gonna fix what got broken as the water couldn’t be heated. I hope this has been fixed now. The adjoining room was clean and neat. We got a city view overlooking banks and other commercial buildings. This also shows the proximity to restaurants, banks, market and other hotels. Food was great also and affordable compared to my city. We enjoyed the rooftop restaurant especially at night. The best part was breakfast omg!!! There was so much to choose from the buffet table. I literally had to dedicate an hour and more for breakfast so I could touch on everything. The staff were polite and helpful also. Special shout-out to Innocent who ensured we got to the airport in time for our flight despite not making arrangements with him amongst other odds.

Nice hotel near city center. Had only one restaurant open due to covid restrictions. Food was good. Air conditioning in our 2 rooms was very marginal after calling maintenance twice. Has nice gym with great view. The staff were very nice and helpful.

I stayed here for a week. Everything was above board. Clean, Accommodating, Great Facilities and Truly a great experience. The restaurant was great as well. The staff was so good, but there was a young man, Shema, who went above and beyond and treated me better than a customer, he treated me like family. The hotel is blessed to have a man like him on staff. Thanks Shema for a great experience.

One very very bed experience! Truly exceptional hill views! Unfortunately, a rather disgusting waiter happened to me who, after I had waited for a single table to become vacant near the window, and having stopped to greet a friend I met by chance, next to the table at which I was about to sit down. made to sit at "my" table a group of people who, a few moments before were seated at another table. It was clear that the waiter in question preferred to seat a group at that table, with a possible tip in proportion to the number of people, me, single and with probable "single" tip! Following this disgusting behavior, I left the place and I don't think about going back.
