3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
not the best of stays
Was charged for the return airport transfer when meant to be included, the phone was broken and no hot water but the staff were mostly nice. I did get an email apologising but no refund as yet so who knows...plus lots of stairs in the heat (hence the phone not working wasn't great). The restaurant only takes shillings so make sure you exchange enough for food or you'll go without like me.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Amenities
The area is terribke, and the hotel looks uncozy. Breakfast is poor, Staff are friendky but the hotel is for locals, a bit rundown. I couldn't wait to get out. Certainly, it looked better in the pics. No elevator. Breakfast on floor 5. At breakfast, tv on with the burial of some person. Not the idesl program to wnjoy breakfast. The linen and towels had seen better days. Not a 3,5 hotel at all. Exoedia shoukd rate better.
