Mipa Hotel

in Mwanza

This eye-catching blue tower is solid all-round with well-equipped rooms (free wi-fi reaches most), good service, a rooftop bar and a proper breakfast buffet. Best of all, it will sometimes discount to a much more reasonable tourist rate. There are no mosquito nets, but the rooms are sprayed daily.

Traffic noise drifts up to the rooms, but that's common with all city-centre hotels.
