Ocean Breeze Hotel
Ranked #8 of 12 Tanga B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Staff is not friendly, nor helpful.
Rooms and cleanliness really need to improve.

Price is low , 15000 TSH for a single room, however we can find cleaner places for the same price.
Breakfast is not available.

Good things about this place - centrally located, good fans, slept well, there are places you can hang washing, and some rooms have nice balcony (some with views). It's also very cheap (we paid TSH 15,000 for a double).

OK, if you are fussy about things like TV working or being able to close the window this ain't for you.. but if that's you, what are you doing in Tanga anyway??

Good place

Room Tip: A room in the west might give you sunset, but it will be a little warmer by the evening

This was really good value - at 15000 shillings for a double room. We stayed her a couple of times (using as a jump off point for visiting Pangani) and both rooms were comfortable, although the plumbing in the bathrooms was pretty awful. Doesn't include breakfast, and Tanga seems to have a lack of restaurants (or at least - none of them seemed to be open ever) so this was a bit of a problem.

Very basic hotel for very low rate. Location and price are the most positive aspects. The hotel is close to the central market, this also makes it a bit noisy during the night due to the traffic and people talking loud. The rooms are poorly maintained, we could not close the windows of our room, sheets seemed very old and the bathroom was very poorly maintained although they seem to clean everyday (e.g. moss in the wall, oxidized pipes, etc.). They do have mosquito nets, that's a good point. Staff are not very communicative, but I can not say they are unfriendly. The hotel can be convenient if you are on a low budget, just expect a very basic accomodation.

Good located in the centre of the city gives value for money: clean room but a lack of maintenance and the staff looks not very happy.
Restaurant next to it and close to bank, market and shops.
Also close to the sea but a harbour in stead of a beach.
With the reception you find also a small sympathic tour operator who can show you Tanga and around

I was travelling alone but the staff put me in a twin room (massive...for one person) and I just paid half. Located opposite the market, in a good area of town. TV in room, own bathroom, balcony, big comfortable beds (THICK MATRESSES...no foam) and the staff are lovely and helpful. Good price compared to what I've paid elsewhere in 'major towns' for much worse rooms.

I got a room on the 4th floor here. There was indeed ocean breeze, which felt great, especially in the evenings - no A/C necessary! I had a huge balcony.

The bathroom was not clean, but it was usable. Staff was friendly. The place was very peaceful - I wasn't feeling well so spent most of the day and a half that I was in Tanga in the room. The TV didn't work but there was very little noise, other than the toilet that kept running.

They can also help arrange tours around town & in the national parks, but I did not use those services.
