Loved the Isamilo. Rooms where clean, shower could be a lot better (little water, getting hot and cold alternating), nice view, excellent restaurant (although way too much coctail sauce on the prawns cocktail) and the staff is just wonderful. So friendly and helpful and nice and well trained. Very very nice and welcoming after the death tiring trip through Serengeti.... More

I stayed here as a tourist for 5 days and was impressed overall although some parts of the hotel are clearly a continuing development project. The manager, Darmesh, is a font of wisdom and help and appears to know everyone in the area, which was invaluable. The new block is impressive although not yet complete. The older block seems to...

The hotel was ok for the money we paid. The condition, restaurant and cleanliness of the room and hotel was good. My complaint lies with the usage of the pool by large group of non swimmers. Dog padding pass kicking and floundering around, holding on the edge of the pool and wanting you to move so they could continue around... More

I am living in Mwanza for almost 6 months now. This hotel has the best Indian food in this town. Service is also good and fast in comparison to other hotels in Mwanza. If you are in Mwanza and want to eat Indian food then this is the best place for you.

Stayed for one night in November. Lovely location. Friendly staff. Clean room. The air conditioning worked great. The fish in the restaurant was excellent. The only downside was it was a Friday night and it was incredibly noisy. Ask for a room in a quiet section.. Sleeping was impossible.
