I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a great experience. It has wooden hallways that give it a warm look, very professional and friendly staff who are on top of any requests you might have before and after your arrival, clean and comfy rooms, nice food, reliable wifi. What is more? It's only 10 to 20 minutes... More

Nice bright and clean rooms, close to the road so some noise but not too much. Walking distance of the CBD. Good value for money, mixed reviews of the food. Staff were very good, helpful and friendly. Take dollars or shillings, we would recommend taking shilling here. Good rate on the transfer to the airport, which was arranged for us... More

Comfortable rooms, good service and security, excellent breakfast, stable WIFI, close to the city centre, and a lot cheaper than comparable hotels. The only downside is the somewhat insecure areas. But overall, no reason why you shouldn't stay here.

As others have mentioned, you get what you pay in the Kahama Hotel. It has very modest facilities and rooms, but clean and at very attractive prices. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only main downside for me is the fact that you need to get a taxi to get anywhere. Although it is relatively close to downtown and... More

Kahama is very centrally located. Our room was clean, but the bathroom was impossibly small. Don't be obese and try to get into it. The room was adequate, but we didn't have hot water. The hotel opened another room so we could shower, but the hot water there ran out in 5 minutes.

Economy with style is the motto and that feels right. Security is good and the location is close to the city centre, though as a lone woman traveller I didn't feel confident enough to walk into the city. The breakfast was really good. The downside for me was that the interior of the hotel was quite dark and there was... More
