This hotel is being redecorated but that does little for the old design and lack of amenities in this old building. Ok for a night or two but not well located for shopping or sightseeing. The casino / bar / nightclub is noisy. The surrounding area is busy, with heavy traffic and few tourist amenities.

Staying a long period in Mwanza I worked out at the Gym of the New Mwanza Hotel. Only after a couple of days I tried out the restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. The quality is very good and the staff is ultra-friendly. Definitely a place to give a try.

This is a budget Hotel with a central location but way off the mark for hospitality. The staff is unfriendly, poorly trained and uninformed. There is a nightclub off the lobby which stays open all night. Good luck sleeping through the noise on rock hard mattresses.

It was terrible to stay there. It was loud all night long due to a party right above our rooms, and another party in the casino next door. Then the staff wasn't very helpful or friendly or whatever to get us somehow satisfied. Even the manager discussed about a discount for that night for about an hour before granting one.... More

Very Central Hotel in Mwanza. The only problem is the noise at night when the discoteque works... For the rest is clean and confortable with a very nice quality/price balance. Good restaurant also at buffet and nice bar. Good Staff and quality service.

Food here was mediocre, bland and expensive for what you get. Air conditioning was good and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. Staff were attentive and the service was good. The coffee from the expresso was absolutely terrible. Not recommended and food elsewhere is much cheaper and tastier.

The New Mwanza Hotel was ideal for me when I stayed there with my many activities centred around the City Centre of Mwanza.The Top Floor rooms have a good view of the City and nice breeze.I found their Standard Rooms to be a bit squeezed though.
