The service is off!. The hotel has zero COVID-19 protocols. Do not trust the five paged document shared before arrival. The staff did not wear masks. I attended a conference and the meeting room was congested with only doors as ventilation!

For the price, I expected nothing short of a clean and spacious room topped with a pleasant view of the city. I slept like a baby that night. I stayed here on NYE on the 8th floor. I could see fireworks all across the city. On the 9th floor there was loud party going on, and the bass could be felt in my room and people were yelling up and down the hallway. So if you're looking for quiet location, make sure to not book the 8th floor on NYE. Cool cafes and supermarkets nearby if you want to buy some coffee and souvenirs back. Breakfast was one of the best I had in Tanzania. Their fresh fruits were superior to all.

Staff here very accommodating. Warm and friendly and happy to help with suggestions, advice and whatever they can do to make for a pleasant stay. Location is good as allows you to walk around the town, see the sites. Restaurant is not the best but ok - has a limited menu. Rooms were clean and spacious. Stayed for a couple of days and it worked well for our needs.

We stayed for 2 nights (before and after our safari) and everything was super nice and clean! The staff was really gentle and available, always smiling The girl from the reception very professional and Pascal very kind and polite. The food into the resturaunt up to the roof was really tasty and good. As we were in honeymoon, they prepared us a very nice surprise (a lot of roses on the carpet, on bed a rose heart and everywhere and a fruit bowl). I highly recommend this hotel!!!!!
