Spent one night in late October 2014 with my spouse. It has very good rooms, great ambience and is fairly priced for the amenities available in the room. It also has excellent customer service! The pool is lovely and location ideal with proximity to shopping malls and entertainment spots!

This hotel doesn't know anything what is going on with the international business traveler, even the smallest lodge in the ruler area has better payment rules and regulation and don't need to make a payment every time you use a service, drink or food from the hotel. The room are good and clean, the pool-site is pleasant.the restaurant food is... More

I have stayed at Kahama on three occasions and each time I have been satisfied with the experience. The swimming pool is great. The rooms are good, clean and comfy. The staff are okay but not very friendly if the guest is not a mzungu.

The food is excellent, staff at the pool bar exceptional, service wise. Rooms are cousy and spacious, however, instructions on how to open the safe in the room need to be printed instead of having to wait for over 12hrs for a member of staff to come and open it for you. The faiba WIFI is a huge disappointment. Never... More

Kasha a is a nice little hotel, that has a very East African feel to it. The rooms are big sized, air conditioning works, bed is comfortable, and the hotel is managed to a decent standard of cleanliness. Breakfast is very basic, but it is included. The pool is small, but why swim in it when you can walk down... More

They charge extra to use the room safe. My camera was stolen from my room. I asked them about this, and they said that they would check their security cameras and I left my phone number. I got no phone call, so I emailed them after returning from my trip. They followed up to say they checked the security cameras,... More
