    The location was very good close to the ferry port, restaurant, forodhani 10mins walk, mosque and shops. And bank five minutes walk

    The breakfast was not very good but I guess what we paid for is what we got.

    Free airport pick-up on time, spacious room with balcony, hot water shower, air conditioning, great breakfast on rooftop, close from town, but at the same time in a quiet place, good price for a taxi to Nungwi

    It offered a “free” shuttle to the airport but considering the price you are basically paying for the shuttle as the price of the room should be much cheaper. They offer free breakfast but I left at 630 for the airport so he said that was before breakfast was served. The owner organized a taxi for me from Matemwe to the hotel for $30 and the driver was really nice. My room had two double beds so more than enough for one person.

    The shower was horrible. I think it is all clogged except one side so just a trickle off the side furthest away from the wall, aka closest to the toilet so water gets everywhere... and even when I had turned on the water heater for a good 15 minutes, I barely managed to get like warm. The bed was rock solid. If you like firm then maybe this would be ideal but for me it was uncomfortable and I couldn’t sleep. During the day it sounded like there were workers all around my room and you could hear all the conversations and the work that was being done. At night the location is a bit sketchy and he advised me to take one street so that there would be lights at night. You are about a 7-10 minute walk from the night market so you aren’t exactly close if you are a solo traveler at night.
