The review says average but what I meant is good, too bad that option isn't available. This is a nice little hotel near a bustling local market and the port. The area may seem to be a bit rough in appearance to people who haven't traveled extensively in Africa so first timers might feel a bit intimidated. They have a nice swimming pool and a restaurant that serves African/Continental fare. Although the rooms are a bit small & basic but worth the money for the price I paid.
The restaurant has very limited options for non meat eaters like myself so I had to rely on some outside food, the bar on the other hand is well stocked and has a good selection of drinks.
The staff is extremely helpful, multilingual and went out of the way to help me with arranging phone calls, ordering pizzas from an outside restaurant and directions for my meeting venue.
The hotel has a really nice terrace which is a great place to read a book, enjoy a drink or simple get some views of the harbor.
I would not mind coming back here.
