Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Its a huge hotel with a large parking space, massive lobbies with plenty of room to sit around and alot of security. For this reason, govt personnel and foreign dignitaries frequent this hotel alot. You will always find various business meetings taking place in the lobbies. Mansoor is situated away from downtown. So don't expect alot of life outside the Hotel premises. However, the building itself is old and worn down. The rooms look tired and old. Corridors look like a picture from 1980s. The hotel is in need of an upgrade. Plus for some reason, there are more than usual amount of flies in the lobby. That keep bugging you in the day while having food. Staff is very friendly and courteous and they are the best part of Mansoor. The waiters will make friends with you quickly and will remember you when you visit next time. Food can definitely improve though. With new hotels being built in downtown and a much better variety of food options available there as well, i would only advice to stay in Mansoor if you have meetings planned in the Hotel. Else, staying in downtown is a much better and rewarding option.

The Maansoor hotel has a safe, green and comfortable garden and compound for sitting or walking. We enjoyed evening walks followed by communal namaz in the hotel mosque - which is very well attended by the local community.

Most exciting are the resident giant leopard tortoises which have made the gardens their home. It’s lovely to see them walking through the car park and munching on the grass

The Maan Soor hotel Berbera. What can I say? Absolute joke that's
USD per night for a cottage room. What we found was a building site located 3 km outside town, a very in helpful and rude owner and Absolutly no way of getting back to town to look for a cheaper hotel option ( when we arrived we were informed the a double room was 60 USD). We suggested paying 50 for a single between us but were offered no alternative or help. The manager was extremely unhelpful. The beach it was located on was full of litter and there was significant building work going on on site. Not worth 60usd. Following this we walked for 3 km in the sweltering heat to come across the al medina hotel. 8 dollars a night for a double with a fan and private bathroom in the centre of town. Much better option than rip off Maan Soor Hotel.

Should you have to overnight in Hargesia, do try and stay elsewhere.The rooms are grim, the food unpleasant. Plus points are that the security seems OK, and they have a big screen tv outside, and backup power, which can be useful during the world cup,

Oh Somaliland, land of littered plastic bags and friendly camels.

A friend and I were visiting Somaliland for 3 days during holiday travels through East Africa. We selected this hotel through our tour agent, Somaliland Travel & Tours. We had repeatedly emailed them about booking a room on our own, yet responses were sparse and unclear. Oddly enough, they wrote to confirm a reservation after we had already booked through our tour agent. Somaliland is the kind of destination where you want to feel good about having a schedule in place, even though now having been there I don't think there's much to be worried about.

As others note, this is the happening spot in town. With a little liquor flowing it might even be hopping, but you know the rules! There was a graduation party here while I was in town, and some really joyous people about made it very human for us.

Breakfast is OK here - we were stunned at first to see a buffet of just breads and cereal, but you could order eggs or some local style breakfast for free, and add fresh fruit for a small fee. Coffee is self serve here and for me was pretty darn good.

Dinner great by local standards. I know you can go out in Hargeysa and eat turkish food or pizza, but we saved that for daytime. Had BBQ goat meat and roasted goat meat here and it was tasty. Plenty of water on sale.

My buddy and I shared a room, two single beds in these huts a short stroll from the main building. I would have preferred to be in the main hotel building, but I never saw those rooms. Mosquitos are plentiful around here, so the net is a must. No A/C, but had a fan that I used to blow the mosquitos in the direction of my friend. HA! Hot water took a few minutes to appear, in a pretty damn dingy bathroom with mosquitos about. I generally felt a bit dirty during my time in Somaliland, but mostly because of places I was going and a lack in great hygiene facilities in this hotel. All part of the experience you can expect.

TV in the room had a good signal and some nice international options including football and news. Internet in rooms and lobby had different names and passwords and was a bit sloppy trying to get a good signal, but passable all things considered.

Access to the nearby street didn't show us very much to do - we got a little bit of attention as tall white guys, but didn't interact much with locals. A day trip to Las Geels is really worth it, and the hotel can help you arrange it if you don't use a tourist company. They have a sister hotel in Berbera that is right across the street from a beach on the Gulf of Aden. Good seafood can be had there, too.

Didn't visit Ambassador hotel, but it looks and feels less secure than Maan-Soor, and since Ambassador is often used as a site for flash quick meetings with government officials from Somaliland, Somalia, and other African countries, my belief is that Ambassador is at higher risk of danger due to these reasons. You make your own decision, but I am a happy and healthy survivor of my trip to Somaliland now a month later!

Stayed at the Maan-Soor for two nights in April 2011. It is one of the two westernized hotels in Hargeisa, the other being the Ambassador. I visited both and preferred the Maan-Soor as it was a little less pretentious (the Ambassador was perhaps a tiny bit nicer, but was trying too hard). Both are popular for business conferences, meetings and events. The Maan-Soor is a better value.

Although no hotel in Somaliland will offer competitive western standards, the Maan-Soor does a good job and has all the amenities you could expect in Hargeisa: café, restaurant, wireless Internet (for a fee), all rooms with ensuite bathrooms and showers with hot and cold water, lots of satellite TV channels with TVs in all rooms, telephones in the rooms, window screens, fan, and insect net. The staff is friendly and efficient, the food is quite good, and the neighborhood is quiet.

You can select rooms in the main hotel building, or take one of the "cottages" rooms which are more secluded and peaceful. The rooms in the main hotel building are more expensive and slightly better equipped, but all rooms have the amenities listed above and the cottage rooms are more private. Breakfast and daily maid service is included.

Note that most western expats and NGO staff stay at the Ambassador, so you have to decide if that is a plus or a minus for you. And although the Ambassador is very close to the Hargeisa airport, the Maan-Soor is closer to the center of town. Note that cash is the only possible form of payment (in either US Dollars or Somaliland Shillings).

The Maan-Soor Hotel was a surprisingly comfortable option chosen for us for a work trip to Hargeisa. The rooms were a decent size and were clean and the staff are lovely. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss, but there was always plenty to eat and hot water for tea.

Spent one night here.

The compound is secured, every car is checked. They have same dick dick and other "wild" animals in the compound. I had a (low) wifi connection at my room. the ac worked really good, as it was incredible hot....around 45 degrees.
The beach is just around 100m away. Nice to relax, no one annoys you at all.
The restaurant was awesome....I ordered 3 dishes....all were good....soup, fish and lamb...that was (for me) really cheap.
If you are staying in Berbera - you need ac!! :-)
