Was just fine for a night stay until catching the ferry to Zanzibar next day. Room was clean and comfortable enough. Nothing fancy but nothing to complain about, got a good night sleep which was all that was needed.

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
