6/10 Good

The staff members went above and beyond to accommodate my needs. The breakfast was delicious with many options. The menu options were nice and affordable. Every room service staff spoke clear english and reception always responded quickly. I like how the rooms have AC and a ceiling fan. The backup generator worked great during city wide power outages. There was an issue with critters but if you don't bring food into your room you should be fine. Peace

Helpful Staff
This is a comfortable hotel. It was a little hard to find and not near the bus stand or airports. The staff was kind and really helpful. The receptionist particularly went out of her way to accommodate.

Drunk waitstaff
The front staff were very friendly and the shuttle driver was kind and professional, but the place was dirty with several roaches in the room and the restaurant staff were not helpful, largely because they were drinking alcohol during there shift.

An oasis of peace
Hi, I enjoyed my stay. The Hotel can pick you up from the airport for $15 (much cheaper than official taxi for $35). The food is well cooked and plenty. I can recommend the Avocado salad as starter and Spaghetti Arabiata. The breakfast has a good choice also. The hotel is quiet and with air con you sleep very well. The bathroom was very clean. I also tested the Full Bidy Massage from the Wellness Spa offer and it was very relaxing after a long day in the city center. I will come back!

0 star Motel in rundown neighborhood
No idea how this motel made it to or even how they managed a 3 star rating. It should not have 1 star by any stretch. This 3 storey structure is located in back roads of run down residential neighborhood with no street lighting at night and does not seem like an area where someone who doesn't know their way around wants to be especially after sundown. Service was poor as it seems to be everywhere in Tanzania - and I'm African and have traveled in Africa. They provided wifi but could not have been anything more than 1KBPs even on rare occasions when it worked.
