6/10 Good

It's truly in the Central Business District and cheap. It's also across from an all-night long-distance bus depot and was not quiet. Checkout time is 10 AM but our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 11 PM! Staff is cordial, breakfast was fine, but room is small with barely functional bathroom. We can't complain about the price but the cab driver had a tough time finding the place and the actual entrance.

8/10 Very good

Good for one or to nights . Very central.
Very central in a spot with a lot of shops around. There is also a bus station with buses taking you to Mombasa, Kampala. Hotel is good for a transfer stay but would not recommend it for a long term stay. Rooms are clean, Staff is very friendly, breakfast is nice.

2/10 Poor

Ten hotel nie spełnia minimum standartu 1 gwiazdki
W rezerwacji miał być czysty i schludny pokój z wanną, tak jak na zdjęciu. Na miejscu okazało się, że pokój był zupełnie inny niż oferowana przy rezerwacji. Okno zamurowane, ciemno jak w piwnicy. Zamiast wanny był obskurny prysznic z grzybem, śmierdziało stęchlizną. Opublikowane na zdjęcia hotelu są nieprawdziwe i przekłamują rzeczywisty obraz.
