a container hotel, with a few solid-builds. all rooms clean, comfortable, mozzie-nets with sufficient AC. didn't get food poisoning from the buffet and have some promo nights. bar staff are friendly. Internet was fast-ish, cool view of the nile. Sad looking pool. okay for a few days or for pizza night.

Great place to eat on an evening with great selection and themed menu, refurbished bar..Located beside the White Nile, Mixed crowd but very spacious. Secure compound but be wary of leaving as a visitor at night. Drive to and from only.

I gave this place an average rating keeping in mind other places I've been to worldwide, which may not be fair considering the current environment in South Sudan. In Juba, you're paying for the security more than anything. I was traveling for business and stayed for 7 days. This is a secure compound, which I only left going to/from the... More

I had travelled to Juba on business and was setup at the Afex camp next to the Nile - it was a great experience. They really treated me well! I was setup in one of the hard units and it was excellent. The staff were good, friendly and helpful. The camp had visible security and a great view of the... More

I stayed at the Hotel for one night. In the reception I was received by a polite person who showed me the way to the room. The room was clean and simple, and had good space, refrigerator and anything else you can expect. Even a microwave . However, the "kitchen area" is clearly not meant for preparing anything else then... More

My favourite place to stay in Juba - the view in the morning as the sun comes up over breakfast is wonderful. The staff always make you feel welcome and there are lots of interesting people passing through. Mexican night is a favourite. Management cutbacks are kicking in, however. The buffet has gone and the new menu is not flexible.... More

Security, security, security.... run by a great team, with fantastic rooms, mozzie nets, very good dining selections. The bar is well stocked, very good service and a view of the Nile that doesn't leave you wanting.... Easily the best and most secure place to stay if you are a visitor/contractor etc... Couldn't fault it at all...

Nice view of the Nile from the restaurant area. The rooms are big and clean with a small kitchenette (microwave no stove). The restaurant is good not great but they do try to... More

This place is excellent and very well secured. It is also very close to the airport. It serves buffet for breakfast and dinner which are excellent. The restaurant is just by the river Nile so it's a great spot to hang out. You can also smoke 'shisha'! Rooms are cosy with air-con, little kitchenette, DSTV, Wi-Fi etc.. This is not... More
