I stayed here for 3 nights arriving from Zurich on the Swiss Air flight which arrives late. Check in fine. Correspondence by email for booking is fine too. I asked for a high floor and a premium room as I'd read about noisy disco on ground floor - so it was relatively quiet up high. No bottled water available in the rooms - empty room fridge and restaurants/bars closed as flight arrived late. Staff initially refused to supply bottled water - took a lot of pushing until a security guard opened a store room on the 1st floor. Staff were generally pretty poor/lazy - you'll need to be assertive to get things done. I asked to send a postcard when I checked out and they wanted $US100 to do it for me. Room is functional - tiled floor, hard bed but comfortable, air-con worked ok, windows opened and I felt secure enough. A good African hotel. A currency change office in the hotel is handy. Take Swiss Francs/Euros/USD. Location is pretty central but I arranged my own driver instead of taking hotel shuttle 45 mins from Airport.
