Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Stayed for one night on a layover for flights at Tambo. Could not recommend this place more highly. Unique small boutique hotel in safe location with all the amenities. Ease of access to/from airport with friendly and helpful drivers - even helping with my luggage and walking me through check-in to ensure no problems before they left. On-site staff thorough and accommodating. Dinner and breakfast high quality food and service. Room clean and interesting.
