Having read and heard that the New Acropol in the centre of Morogoro was a charming place to stay, I was very disappointed that I could not contact the hotel to make a booking. We even tried through an agency as their website was down and no listed numbers worked. I reluctantly settled on a self catering cottage at Mbuyuni.
When we arrived in Morogoro I insisted we went to the Acropol for lunch. Wow - was I glad that we were not staying there. Although you could see the faded glory of the place and it certainly still qualified as eccentric, it was really grubby. I didn't see the rooms to be honest, but judging by the filth everywhere else, I would not imagine the rooms would be much better.
My vegetable curry may as well have been dishwater for all it tasted of. The rest of the families food was slightly more edible, but not very good. The European manager was very unfriendly and quite rude to my children who took an interest in the puppy she was nursing.
Mbuyuni on the other hand was gorgeous - what a find!More
