  : Location, Location, Location, and very cheap and affordable for a long stay.
  : Loud part of town at night but it was expected.


By: Mohab

Traveller Type: solo traveller
  : Nice if you want a budget accommodation just to sleep in but not spend any time
  : The road leading to the hotel is very poorly maintained and soaking wet all the time. The hotel didn’t have any breakfast to serve and when I asked for it they said I should’ve told them the night before and that now it’s too late to make breakfast (that was 9:30am). The bed didn’t have any cover and had to ask for it. The TV wasn’t working half of the time. And the location is not that great as there are many nicer hotels in the heart of Stone Town with similar prices.

  : everything
  : They need to add some tv channels, plus restaurant is a must. I mean I can not even order a softdrink, because they don't have any restaurant nearby nor at the property


By: Gareth

Traveller Type: solo traveller
  : nice sized room.plenty of natural light from the 3 windows, big bed, good lighting and plenty of plug sockets, had use of the kitchen kettle for making tea, cups etc, the fridge was a nice addition in a tropical country, nice telly with blockbuster hollywood movies from dawn to dusk.
  : No mosquito net?? Thought it was because the hotel was in a city, but there were the little blighters at night, buzzing away. was surpossed to stay 5 nts but only stayed 2 nts due to the close location of a 3rd world market and slums, not the hotels problem but it wasnt nice. there waasnt a road to the property just a set of very deep and flooded pot holes, a tank would be best suited to reach the place from the ferry terminal
