“Good Location, Comfortable Rooms, Lousy Food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Stayed for 4 nights at Nyumbani Hotels Tanga. Liked the room size and set up, sad about the furnishings though, it will be great if used local wood instead of imported. It will look more authentic if it was home materials used it is afterall Nyumbani Hotel.

Understandably so, this is by far the best accomodation you can find on this side of Tanzania but I strongly recommend two things to be improved

An investment in a qualified chef, for this standard investment good food should come as a package. Breakfast is terrible nothing to look forward to when you wake up in this hotel

Second is the smoke. Invest in a good extractor. When you sit at the lounge or the ground floor bar, you leave smelling like smoked fish or beef depending on what they are cooking.

Will stay here again no much option out there but good food is a must.

This hotel was in a good position IN Tanga,with nice pool and spacious rooms.Good bathroom and toilet,aircon etc and everything worked well.Breakfast was included although not much choice
but lovely porridge.A reasonable price with wi-fi.

Room Tip: 2nd floor was good not to far to walk up the stairs as no lift.

Quite a large crowd of us spent a night here after getting off a ship after a month at sea. Needless to say a good night was had by all with a pleasant buffet and lots of beer in the rooftop restaurant. Good clean rooms with excellent beds and good aircon. No problems with either plumbing or electrics. Very helpful and friendly staff. Food is perfectly adequate but don't expect too much. Ok. pool area but the water was very murky and the filtration system wasn't working. Can't comment on value as company picked up the tab.

This is a modern hotel in Tanga and looks very good. However, I should have been warned when they insisted on full payment before handing over the key. The room looked quite good and so it should as the hotel is very new. I soon found that not one of the 3 lights had a plug that fitted in Tanzania. The curtains didn't fit the window and so left gaps on either side. There was never any hot water for a shower despite assurance from the staff. I checked with other guests and no one had hot water. The room was not properly prepared and after trying to get a short sleep I discovered 6 new mosquito bites. Mosquitos were everywhere. A maid was summoned and sprayed insect spray and then set off the fire alarm!!

If I was going back to Tanga I would take time to find somewhere else. Pricey and not value for money.

This is a recently opened and very modern hotel - which exceeded my expectations for this part of Tanzania and was good value for money. Wow was what I said as I walked in - very stylish modern architecure. Service was excepionally polite and very attentive from helpful staff.

As a new build would be unlikely to pass USofA or european disability access regs as I couldn't find any lifts to the upper floors, or restaurant on the top floor (having just spent 4 months on crutches following an accident this could have been an issue, but the staff were superb and carried cases etc.).
Business area had free wi fi.
Bedroom was large with full facilities and an ultra modern and quirky bathroom arrangement, with full length glass wall from the bathroom - ok for me but some might find it off putting!
Restaurant service was very good with a good number of staff always available, quality of catering was satisfactory rather than exceptional.
