I don't know about other rooms, but where I stayed was quite roomy. Big and clean. I understand it's just been refurbished, that probably explains it. It's at a quiet, good part of town but the hotel can be chaotic atimes. The meals weren't exactly good either and it took forever to get room service. Apparently there is no free... More

Staff need training and re training. Wifi services although free only available in the lounge not inside the rooms. The other sections of the hotel need to be refurbished to be... More

The best hotel in kano. Recently renovated and upgraded. Very excellent management. Good food, spacious, very good security. Electricity and water 24 hours. Free wireless connection. Swimming pool and garden. I advise every one to visit and see for theirselves.

It is in a good part of town, very quiet place in a main residential area. Security in the place is top notch given events in the state in recent times. The place is quite cramped up. Parking is poor but notwithstanding, patronage seems high probably due to the moderate pricing. The food is a bit dear. The rooms are... More

As I went to Kano for the first time, I asked my friends and associates about a good hotel in Kano. Unanimously the answer was Tahir Guest Palace and I was pretty convinced about the place. Staff was very courteous and I was welcomed nicely as I reached the place, But the serious concerns I had are as below: a)... More

Always used to love staying in this hotel. Seems to have deteriorated over the years. Flies and mosquitoes all over the place and the rooms have a pungent smell. Restaurant used to boast of an excellent buffet, no longer. The meeting room had been unused for a while and not enough time had been given to clean the room in... More

A secure setting though parking inside the compound was difficult. Check-in was problematic as was check-out. Food presentation not very appealing. Staff not very attentive or helpful. Plugs and lamps in the room faulty and hot water kettle not working but no effort to change either after 3 requests. My room was very noisy. Not a lot of choice in... More
