“MODEST AND BASIC”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

Juba is the world's newest capital and until recently was not much more than a dusty town in a forgotten part of Sudan. Against this backdrop, travellers should not expect more than basic accommodation, which until a couple of years back was limited to tent camps and portacabins. Rock City Hotel is misnamed, it is collection of thatched brick huts built on a rocky outcrop on the edge of Juba. Aside from an open air terrace which doubles as restaurant, there are no other facilities. Rooms are quite spacious, modestly furnished, beds have mosquito nets (essential) and are air-conditioned. Also essential. Rooms have TV, although the channel choice is limited and fridges. No tea or coffee making facilities. Bathrooms only have showers. Purportedly there is internet, however, during a 5 day stay this reviewed was unable to access it. The "hotel" serves a modest breakfast of fruit, juice, cereal, instant coffee and eggs to order. Other meal choices were also limited to either fish and chips or chicken and chips. Staff are friendly, but lack real training in the hospitality business. There was no sign of any management during a week long stay. Options in Juba are limited, if available stay at Jebel Lodge which has better food and offers a pool, bar and sitting area.
