We spent about 8 hours here between a late arriving flight from Europe and an early flight to Zanzibar.
The restaurant was good and accommodating for our late meal. The rooms were very clean and modern.
Serious Advice on the Airport - listen to the front desk when they tell you how much time you need at the airport! We left at 6AM for a flight at 8:15AM. One - this hotel is close to the airport but traffic is a NIGHTMARE even at 6AM; Two - the airport is a zoo - they require you to check in one hour before your flight and when you finally get to the airport there is a long line to get through security (unlike the States you go through security first then to the ticket counter; three - once you get to the ticket counter (we had about 3 minutes to spare...) you aren't home-free - you need to pass through emigration / passport control and you are supposed to check in at your gate 30 minutes prior to your flight. We got there about 25 minutes before - they were freaking out a bit and rushed us through (then we waited a long time before they actually boarded the plane) Long story short - allow A LOT of time for the airport and bring a book or something or prepare to be stressed out or miss your flight!
