Reviewed 3 January 2017 via mobile

Stayed here one night before I went to Mombasa. The rooms were decent. Had some bugs in the room but nothing to get angry about.
The staff were great. Any problems the hotel had is made up by the staff. Every single person that worked there was super friendly and helpful. Also, the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced.
The area seems like a ghetto but it's not. I think it's kinda crazy because it's near the bus stations. It's a perfectly safe area. You can walk anywhere and the central business district is only about 5 minutes away.

The Hotel's central location makes it convenient to access from all around the City. I stayed there for two nights on the weekend but didn't use the bar or restaurant. The room I stayed was on the first floor and it was clean, safe and very comfortable. The staff were also welcoming.

Having paid $55 to stay here on a Monday night, we expected a simple yet comfortable hotel room. We had an early flight so we were disappointed to see that our window overlooked a large 'atrium' running through the centre of the building and carrying the noise all the way to our room. Brown water in the shower and taps and three small cockroaches didnt aid matters either.

The food is average and the service is also wanting...It's during the evening rush hour and the restaurant is,not at all busy. I sat down and ordered my meal...as I waited I asked a waitress for the wifi password and she in turn went to the cashier behind a glass mirror and asked for the wifi password who in turn totally refused to give it to me and said ONLY! the manager was allowed to give it out to clients. I walked back to my table obviously agitated but before I sat I asked a gentleman who was a waiter for the wifi password which he happily and willingly gave it to me without hesitation. I was shocked one staff willing to assist a guest (Morris) and another staff...Rude (sofia) with no etiquette and proper training in the way to handle an agitated and dissatisfied guest. All this time the manager also never appeared or bothered to talk to me! Training required urgently!!!!!!

The room hade no Aircondition or warmwater. But if you ask the staff you could get a fan.
There is no mosquito nets unless you ask for it, and believe me, you WILL need it.

The food was soso, but the liqour was cheap.

Room Tip: Ask for a mosquito net and a fan!!

The hotel was quite fine. But the fees were not cleary defined, so I paid so much for the service I had. The rooms were clean,with warm water, but the tv didn't work. From rooms I got a lot of smell from the kitchen. My advise is to book the hotel from tripadvisor or other so that you get a fair rate.
