“Need to try much harder”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

This is a modern hotel in Tanga and looks very good. However, I should have been warned when they insisted on full payment before handing over the key. The room looked quite good and so it should as the hotel is very new. I soon found that not one of the 3 lights had a plug that fitted in Tanzania. The curtains didn't fit the window and so left gaps on either side. There was never any hot water for a shower despite assurance from the staff. I checked with other guests and no one had hot water. The room was not properly prepared and after trying to get a short sleep I discovered 6 new mosquito bites. Mosquitos were everywhere. A maid was summoned and sprayed insect spray and then set off the fire alarm!!

If I was going back to Tanga I would take time to find somewhere else. Pricey and not value for money.

Reviewed 7 April 2012

This is a recently opened and very modern hotel - which exceeded my expectations for this part of Tanzania and was good value for money. Wow was what I said as I walked in - very stylish modern architecure. Service was excepionally polite and very attentive from helpful staff.

As a new build would be unlikely to pass USofA or european disability access regs as I couldn't find any lifts to the upper floors, or restaurant on the top floor (having just spent 4 months on crutches following an accident this could have been an issue, but the staff were superb and carried cases etc.).
Business area had free wi fi.
Bedroom was large with full facilities and an ultra modern and quirky bathroom arrangement, with full length glass wall from the bathroom - ok for me but some might find it off putting!
Restaurant service was very good with a good number of staff always available, quality of catering was satisfactory rather than exceptional.
