Don't expect fast service here, but that seems like part of the Somaliland experience. The free breakfast is really good, and huge. The rooms all have fans, and have a good view of the used goods and money-changers on the street. The beds are comfortable enough, the bathrooms were very nice. Also the free wifi was a plus! The owner... More

We picked this hotel based on the Lonely Planet review but had a series of problems with the hotel. First, we were told there was no shuttle service. When we got to the airport, the taxi driver monopoly wanted to charge us $20 for the 10 minute ride to the hotel!! (Keep in mind, that's a few days salary for... More

The manager Abdi was very helpfull except for trying to organise unnecesarily expensive trips to las geel for me. They wanted twice the amount that i ended up paying. The food in the nice courtyard restaurant was not good either. I guess they cant cook western food very well. The orange juice however was delicious. I ended up spending the... More

The hotel is in the centre of Hargeysa, which is good for those who want to have a feel of the city and really take in as much as possible. It's also very reasonably priced (I paid 15 dollars per night). However, you should be really patient some times and ready to 'go with their flow', if you want to... More
