I love the faded splendour of these post-colonial hotels with their large rooms, high ceilings and architectural embellishments. The bathroom had its eccentricities to be sure -- dolphin shaped towel holders and leaky plumbing -- but since this hotel is being rebuilt, due for completion June, I imagine the owners are slow to fix anything they can get away with in the meantime. The hotel and rooms were spotlessly clean and the service was more than impeccable -- in fact I was fair tripping over staff in their neat uniforms. Food varied from inedible (generally, European a la carte and the room service on the first night) to excellent -- breakfasts and buffets & I recommend the African food -- the chef was even willing to cook to order: delicious bean stew with chapattis & rice. The best thing about the hotel is the polished wood and the remarkable collection of Tanzanian blackwood sculptures. Can't comment on the value as I didn't pay -- was there for work -- but something will be lost if old rooms are torn down rather than renovated.
