“A great value”
Reviewed 13 March 2008

Caveat: for budget travelers only. The Flamingo in 2/08 was 18,000 tsh single and 20,000 tsh double. The room is basic, containing only two twins with clean white sheets and duvets, mosquito net, built-in shelving and the standard goatskin-bentwood chair. The private bath has a hot water shower -- use it before TZ's famous rolling blackouts kill the power to the water heater! Breakfast included.

The property is immaculate, scoured hourly by a team of women who never seem to stop dusting, sweeping, mopping...

It's close to a mosque, so you'll be awakened by the 5 a.m. call to prayer. It's also one street away from the most amazing street food I've ever had: Khan's Barbecue, on Mosikiti Street, an auto parts store by day, makeshift restaurant by night. The men who run it are wonderful and the food is spectacular.
