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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Location is good and Tanga Town view is excellent from the 3rd to 4th and 5fth floors. How ever the plumbing not in good shape. Leaking pipes and the Chinese fittings have to be replaced. TV programs are mostly local, no International News Network.

While payment their machine broke down since they had problems with electricity. Even though I could prove with my online banking that the money was paid they were not accepting this. They were putting a lot of pressure that I have to pay again! Finally I did to escape from this uncomfortable situation and the manager told me if I would be right and the money will be taken double he will contact me. Of course I was right, the money was taken twice and he never contacted me! Stay away from this place!

The hotel staffs are very rude including the manager also.
They have overcharged us for the stay and also the staffs are very rude and indiscplined. They reply clients very rudely and so does the manager of the hotel, very poor service indeed.
I dont recommend any client or traveller for this hotel!

The noisy is too much, I couldn't sleep at all. I could hear everything from outside cars passing, train hong, motorcycle and people and music downstairs. I wouldn't recommend for someone who need a good quality sleep and rest

Don't go there! They will steal you! The hotel management is in touch with gangs of thieves, who will enter your window and rob you!
We have reported the situation to the police, but the chief of police is also in touch with the situation and will not help you. Beware of that.

Worst experience of my life....got robbed in my own room while sleeping(the burglar came through the window). Manager did absolutely nothing as he was clearly involved in this, together with police and so on. Worst place that needs to be shut down asap. We are currently making an official complaint at the Ministry of Tourism in Tanzania. This is not acceptable, to come as a tourist and be treated like a wallet full of money by people of the lowest possible character.

Staff went above and beyond to help us out with lost luggage. Excellent value en suite room, super comfortable mattress. Spacious and airy.

Free buffet breakfast - average quality but hey its free.

Location wise - 15 minute walk to centre.

Couldn't recommend more!

The room is very good, with a lot of space, comfortable bed, clean toilet and hot shower. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi work well. They also offer good breakfast. Staff at front desk is nice and available to help. Location is good, but not very central. Still, with a quick and cheap tuk tuk ride you will be at the city center.
