I have been coming here for over ten years now and have stayed in other hotels too but here it's cheap and cheerful. I mainly return because of the firm friends that I have at the hotel and because I'm literally only in my room to sleep. If you like your creature comforts DON'T come here but if you like... More

If you just want a clean place to sleep a reasonable breakfast and reasonable staff at a budget price, then this is the place to stay. Welcome to Africa :-) No holds Barred. Best rooms are blocks A,B & C. We have stayed in the same room twice, they are always more than willing to move you with NO problem.... More

There must be better rooms on this hotel. We had a very basic room - to a very bacic price, check the room before you pay. The hotelstaff is very friendly, but the pepole in the reception need to be more serviceminded. If you use the "taxi-service", just outside the hotel, be prepeard on very heavy bargening. A ok hotel,... More
