Property conditions & facilities


6/10 Good

this was fine for a short stay at a budget rate. the location is safe and quiet and the place is clean, but there were no Covid protections in place. The studios have no phone to reception, toiletries and water are not replaced, and staff not particularly attentive. Not a single staff wore a mask except on request.

6/10 Good

not so great
Not too bad accommodation but aircon was not working, shower curtain and mould smell from the bathroom. Seems to have been a very good place previously needs a little bit more attention, lacks that hotel feel.

2/10 Poor

Staff didn't really understand English. Breakfast was rubbish No WLAN Powershortcut led to a roaring generator at night. Light in my room went on and couldn't be shut down. No switch for it my room. It was bright like daylight. The aircon was absolutely not bearable. Loud and not properly working. This hotel won't see me again!!!

10/10 Exceptional

A Japanese traveler who stayed here
This hotel is very comfortable. The staffs are very kind. You can ask questions you have on your trip. Especially, Mr. Aditya, front office manager, told me how to go to other cities. In addition, I was very peased with meals in this hotel's restaurant. You can eat not only local foods but also Indian and Chinese ones. I can reccomend this hotel with confidence.

2/10 Poor

Tråkigt i Malawi
Ett konferenshotell som var ett av de tråkigaste ställen jag varit på. Det fanns absolut ingenting att göra. Matsalen var ett skämt för den inredningsintresserade. Det stod att det skulle finnas pool, men där fick vi tji.
