The first room I had was 35,000/- and a single room. The room was tiny with too much furniture and nowhere to store anything which was just super annoying. The food is fine, pretty uninspired but the usual fare you would expect at this price range. The second room I had was much better, a double for 50,000/-. Space to...

We had a super drink night in here... Its a cool place to stay with friends and have drinks. Nice place for talking, no Outside noise disturbance though the hotel is very near to Mbeya Dar Road. Also the hotel has a good rate for Rooms. It is a nice place to visit when you are in Green City(Mbeya).

The room wss a good size, comfortable and clean. We only stayed one night because they were having problems with internet and it only worked in the lobby.The room including breakfast that was adequate. While there was free internet, it didn't work in the room.Reasonable price and reasonable hotel.

One of my friend was staying at the hotel for a month. I found it to be a great place to stay. Located and well connected to a city. Hotel is situated on the main road. It has a nice bar, rooms and restaurant. But parking seem to be an issue if there will be many cars above 5?

We loved our stay at GR city. We only planned to pass through mbeya very quickly to catch a flight to Dar but we were quicker than anticipated through Malawi so we had two nights instead of one and we're so glad we did. Our room was very posh and a much higher standard than we were used to. It...

I was looking for a hotel for one night before catching the Tazara train to Zambia. This hotel is located in the Soweto district, it is about a 15,000 shilling taxi ride from the train station and city center, about £12, depending on your negotiation skills! I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel, I stayed in one of their cheapest rooms and...
