There are lots of historical write ups on the hallway walls that give you local history. The rooms are slightly ...

My stay at the Tembo hotel was extremely pleasant. They provided a free upgrade, held our prior as we walked around the city after we had checked out, and always made us feel welcome and safe. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were looking for some place affordable and safe, but we did not require many amenities, so Al-Minar worked well for us. It is not super convenient if you have a lot of luggage, ...
