Reviewed 6 December 2016

In a word....grim. I travel a lot and usually opt for mid range hotels. I don't expect a lot but The Strand, for what they charge, was very disappointing. Tiny room. No fans or A/C, so dank and smelly. Paper thin mattress. Toilet that did not flush. No hot - or even lukewarm - water. TV did not work. Says it has wifi, but it worked so infrequently it was unusable. Hallways dark with many lights out: had to use a flashlight to find my room, and then get the key in the door.

First of all, if you stay there, keep your valuables with you always. The toilets are without seat covers, no ventilation in the toilet. Humid, full of mosquitoes. Be careful what you order because the chef obviously doesn't know how to cook. If you can, choose another place.

Stayed at the Strand for 5 days. It was a nice place. Staff were good. Breakfast was good with enough to eat and dinner was tasty and freshly cooked. The room was snuggly and room service was available at no extra cost.

Friendly staff but were definitely on "africa time". Nothing special about this hotel at all and is somewhat in a sketchy neighbourhood. Breakfast was good. They told us the national park was open at 8 but it was actually open at 6 am when we wanted to go.

Stayed: December 2015, travelled with friends
