  1. I think the only thing that I can say is woooooh! The hotel room are just incredible and fabulous. All I wish is that the excellent services can be affordable to the common mwananchi. Or at times you offer a chance that a commoner can experience the luxury and I know that is business but I think the pleasure of business comes also when everybody can enjoy the comfort itself.
