Overall hotel is just Ok
Hotel is just ok staff is not really friendly. Although I prepaid everything but while checkout i got a surprise that i have to pay additional 40,630 Tanzania Shillings because their system is showing that and they don’t have any explanation to that additional amount and they keep calling it human error in the system which doesn’t make sense. I will probably won’t book this hotel again. If someone stay please don’t pay in advance

6/10 Good

Pros: Air conditioning, clean, has elevators, continental breakfast, blackout curtains Cons: Small room, lumpy pillows and bed, noisy busy street, tv satellite didn't work, small lobby (can't really hang out there), terrible free parking garage (fits 3-4 cars and you have to go down a steep angle to get there and can be trapped in by other cars so we paid for expensive parking across the street)
