Forced to pay in advance @ $100 per night and on arrival was placed in a dungeon styled, dingy room next to reception with a window that opened directly into the street. The room had no lock. Was promised a rebate and upgrade of room early next morning but was not moved until 17.00. Then no rebate was offered and to make matters worse funds were withdrawn from my credit card for food and drinks without my signature. My friends fared slightly better but were still dissapointed with the qulaity, service and hoesty of this hotel. There are several great places to stay in Stone Town and this was by far the worst and most expensive and dishonest
