Researched and found this hotel using trip advisor for an 8 hour layover between a late night arrival and morning departure. (We considered staying at the airport, but could not tell if the airport 'closed' such that we would be sent outside!) The rooms were basic, secure, quiet and clean. The bathroom was very basic, but clean. The front desk receptionist went out of her way to find us the biggest room available (we were a party of three) as the booking didn't specify the number of beds. The drive into the airport is through a local housing area via a dirt road. The drive in, at night, could produce anxiety for those who had not travelled and stayed in Africa previously. I would not walk to/from the hotel in the dark. The hotel had a fence, security gate and guard. We took a taxi from the airport, tipped well and booked the same taxi driver for the return to the airport. He was waiting in the hotel's driveway when we walked out the door.
