We stayed at the Rich hotel for two nights before Safari. The room (on the 4th floor) was cramped and very basic, although it had a nice cable TV to pass the time and the mosquito net was adequate. The hotel is fairly close to a variety of shops and in this sense it is very convenient to stay there....

It's quite impressive to visit Africa when we are a girl traveling on her own. My check in was quick and efficient, I felt very welcomed. I arrived in...

We stayed here for 3 nights in total, pre- and post safari. Ideally located, close to markets, buses etc. Rooms were small and basic. Comfortable beds, somewhat-working wifi both in the room and restaurant. The shower actually had warm water, which we didn't learn to appreciate until later on the trip. Apart from the quite unfriedly receptionist, the staff was...

The hotel has everything you need for a comfy stay. The concierge was happy to help. The rooms were clean. We were on the 5th floor, and the room had a view over the town, which was interesting watching The bed's comfortable, the room is clean and the breakfast is moderately edible. What more do you want in a hotel?
