Have used Mpala hotel for a while but standards lately have sadly deteriorated...i pray someone saves that business! It appears they now can not get the basics right, the wifi, television channels, doors etc are not working. While the staff are ready to assit...it appears they are stretched. Will be a while before i book myself back at this place.

Again a hotel which can absolutely not keep their promises, only because i was only stayig for 3 nights, and i was too tired to search for another solution, i did stayed there... The 3 photos that i have are only a small example of how they did NOT kept their promise of "LUXURY beyond imagination", marked on a big board outside of the hotel...

The service at Mpala Boutique Hotel was really excellent. The room was just spacious,well maintained.The location is in a quite residential place,with secure parking.The watchman washed my car very early in the morning.The staff was so friendly and the food was always well prepared and fresh. What I liked most is the quite environment,fresh foods,and spacious well furnished room.

Clearly the hotel is aimed at business travellers, but despite this the staff went out of their way to accommodate our family. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The place is secure and we had no problem having the kids in the room next door to ours. Special thanks to Albertina who went out her way to make our stay a really pleasant one!

We found Mpala on Airbnb and it was delightful. It was clean, in a part of town that seemed residential, with trees surrounding it. Our car was washed by the night watchman and that was a pleasant surprise. The staff was lovely, too.

Mpala Lodge one of the best hotels in Byo! It really is a boutique hotel... The rooms are a bit small but not a deal breaker. The decor throughout the hotel is fantastic. Our room had a view of the pool, and it was relaxing to stand on the balcony and feel the breeze on a hot summer day. The staff are all very friendly and warm, make you feel right at home. I would recommend Mpala Boutique Hotel to everyone! 5 stars!!!! And the dining area is elegant and classy! Just beautiful! I will definitely be staying there again!
