The Hotel is very close to the city center, They also provide Airport Pickup and drop services. The Manager of the hotel Mr. Mehboob is a very friendly and always ready to support. The breakfast and the room service is also very good.

We stayed 11 days at this hotel. By far, what made our stay comfortable and enjoyable was the friendship of Mr. Maheboob Karmali from Hotel Nikko Tower. He went out of his way to accommodate the needs of our family. Under his leadership, we saw the entire hotel staff reach out to make special arrangements for us and for other...

Just stayed one night but Nikko Tower provides clean, spacious rooms, with great wifi, nice bed and a good bathroom. Breakfast was divers and nice (even for vegans) and the staff were very helpfull. Situated in the heart of the Indian quarter near the ferry to Zanzibar.

This hotel could not have a nicer owner director - so helpful. or be in a better location for the ferry. Room was clean and a spacious. Breakfast was a little basic but there was some lovely fruit, an omlet alongside the 2 local cereals and some bread and sausages. One tip would be to contact directly before booking to...

We really enjoyed our 1 day and night at the Hotel Nikko Tower. We arrived late in the evening and the hotel manager met us at the front desk and had the chef prepare a dinner for our family of 5. The chef alone makes staying at the hotel worthwhile. The rooms are small very clean and comfortable. Hot shower,...

We spent two nights here in July, 2016. The owner is fantastic and was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was good and the room was small but adequate (I hear other rooms were bigger). We were able to take a long walk to the ferry's and around town from the hotel - the location is very good in a large...

This is my second time here and the staff/service are just excellent. The food is yummy and the self baked brown bread is to die for. Very convenient location and clean room. And wifi everywhere. Breakfast has a good spread. It's run by an Indian so the Indian food is amazing.

I had to leave a horrible hotel in the muzungu area, and ended up at this one. The staff were lovely, from the security staff outside to the owner himself welcoming everyone. There is a kind of loud call to prayer in the early morning, but if you are a sound sleeper, you'll be fine. I asked to be moved...

My initial experience was not great, until we told them of the issues I had and the manager took care of me personally. The staff are quite helpful. Their head chef is Indian so expect Indian dished for breakfast in addition to the regular fruits and cereals. They also offer Indian and Chinese cuisine however, you have to ask for...

We (mature couple) stayed for 3 nights while touring in Tanzania in October 2015. We wanted to have a reasonable place in the downtown so we could walk out to tour, but not overly expensive. Hotel Nikko Tower meets that bill. The facility is in fair-good condition, and our rooms were average size but clean and well-equipped. The location is...
