This was the drop off spot for our overland trip through east Africa. I had read reviews from other trip advisor members that had warned about the hotel charging for an extra person when someone leaves their bags in your room or uses the washroom. I luckily was not impressed by the reviews I read and had booked another hotel, but we did experience this. Essentially, the tour company we travelled with ended the tour at the Boulevard Hotel. For anyone who had a flight to catch later that night or who wanted to use a friends room to freshen up the hotel charged $65 extra to the room. This hotel is already over priced for what it is in my opinion any way, and they are just taking advantage of the situation that there are travellers from these overland tours who get dropped off there. It is convenient to have a room where the tour ends, but I would caution anyone who stays here about holding a friends bags or letting them use your room to change etc. if you don't want extra charges. Your money might be better spent at a different, more hospitable hotel.
