The New Acropol is completely unlike any other hotel in Morogoro, full of character and a thoroughly interesting place to stay. Yes it has its quirks, but when you travel a lot and places start looking the same, accommodation like this is a welcome change. The rooms are large and uniquely furnished, the bar is convivial, the food is good, the prices are fair and the wi-fi works (good enough for Skype). The owners love their dogs and some of the fittings aren't exactly brand new, but that's part of the charm and regulars come back time after time. Take time to get to know the management and the history of the place, before writing it off (as some reviewers have without even spending the night there).
