Dear Ahmed We appreciate your review.In first place you are not our hotel guest and you are the tenant of apartments.This page is for Hotel Only.The rent is paid in advance any where in Tanzania on a monthly basis and its non refundable.The contract clearly mentions the terms and conditions.Its your friends who took the apartment and after they left you have occupied the flat till the rent ends.

ciao.non ti preoccupare ,di taxi ce ne sono tantissimi disponibili.Ti consiglio di prenotarne uno il giorno prima direttamente a qualsiasi tassista che trovi in strada; l'unico accorgimento è quello di partire con largo anticipo (io ci ho messo più di un'ora ad arrivare all 'aeroporto ) per via del traffico,ma questo comunque i tassisti già lo sanno.Buon viaggio
