The hotel is very well maintained, with clean public areas and clean rooms. My room was huge, with very tall ceilings and a big bathroom with a shower. I had a corner room, which gave plenty of natural light. The area is quiet and it was easy to sleep in the very firm queen-sized bed. The sheets were soft and... More

I spent a week on a job for the UN in Gigiri and chose to stay in the vicinity - having earlier experienced the horrors of a hotel in town: the traffic just kills you! Tara was a good formula.

On one of the days in my stay my laundry was taken from my room and washed, though I had not asked for this to be done or put... More

I spent over a week at the Tara Suites attending business meetings in the UN Crescent. I found the rooms affordable, clean and spacious with all the amenities, the staff accommodating and friendly, and the hotel overall a quiet homey place to stay as an alternative to the larger hotels ion the area such as the Tribe. The two missing... More

It would be great to have TVs in the room and telephone services to enable individual choices to catch up with news, and also to call for emergencies in the comfort of one's room. It is also essential to put more furniture in the rooms 2 chairs for guests as needed esp. in the apartment section where I stayed. And... More
