    The location is very good, not far from the airport. You can shop around Stone Town, take a walk at the night market and taste the food, as well as enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant. It is recommended to stay here.

    The breakfast variety is not rich enough and the service can be done better.

    Very nice breakfast with a variety of choices from omelets to exotic fruits and veggies. The short bananas were a real treat.

    The prices for excursions booked by the hotel.

    The location.

    A disappointing stay after 3 weeks in Tanzania. Reception area is small and pokey with little room to move around and tight seating. Hallways are dark. Rooms have no views. This is not a good hotel for tourists. The better rooms and service went to the large corporate customers like the aircraft flight staff that stay there. We saw and visited much nicer hotels in the area where tourists were treated as their first priority.
