Tahir Guest Palace
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Kano
Reviewed May 16, 2009

They say it's the best hotel in Kano. Well, I didn't visit other hotels, but I'm assuming it could be the true as most of the guests staying there looked very rich, so they could choose.
By European standards though it's a 3 star hotel maximum! They have Soviet times kind of interior, restaurant looked very cheap too, although it was not :)
Rooms are very spacious though and quite clean, although I did have some bugs in my room once in a while. They had tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which was nice.
Wi-Fi internet is for free everywhere around hotel, although it's not that fast most of the time.
They have also gym for free and aerobics classes. Another thing they have is... sauna. I didn't go there and didn't understand why they have it as it's like in sauna all dat long outside.
Swimming pool is very small and quite dirty, although they do clean it every day. The area around is quite nice anyway, so I did use it.
They spray something against mosquittos everyday, so it smells quite bad sometimes, but there is nothing you can do about it I guess.
Chef in the restaurant is really great and cooks quite good meals actually. The other waiters are pretty lazy I would say, do almost nothing and never in the hurry.
General Manager of the hotel Muhammed was really great and helpful to us. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank him once again for everything he has done for us.
I cannot say that I liked the hotel the much but some of the staff members made it unforgettible for me.
