We also stayed in room 208 (at rear but updated)and my daughter stayed in 206 (at front but updated) and both rooms were very good. However for the first night of our tour we were moved to room 205 (at front and tired) and the difference was startling. Mouldy old shower curtain, smelt of smoke and mould and watch out opening the wardrobe if you have fan on! Also front rooms were much noisier than the rooms at rear. They were otherwise clean but if you can score room 208 or similar you are far better off.
Work was occurring upstairs so maybe they will update this room in time.
Overall in context of Tana good value for money as it is relatively cheap.
Best aspect is the safe location although whether that will change once the US embassy moves to its new location when built out towards airport, who knows. Close by to market and ATM's with restaurant in rear street with steps past US embassy so safe at night due to security presence.
Supermarket a short walk away.
A little english was spoken and together with basic french you can get understood and the staff were always helpfull.
