Zakinn is close to town and convenient. The rooms were clean and attractive. But there were a number of challenges: - The metal frame bed in my room was charming! But also REALLY loose! It wiggled and jiggled every time I turned. I thought it was gonna collapse! - One scratchy towel. Nothing to wrap my wet hair. Uggg - Only amenity = soap. - The water pressure in my room was fine, but hot water ran out fast. My colleague had NO water pressure so had to shower in my room. The issue was met with an indifferent shrug. - The hall to the rooms was like a sound tunnel. I could hear everything going on in the hall and breakfast area while in my room. Strangly noisy! - Breakfast was cold and placing an order was painful. The guy in charge just seemed to hide when we would come and sit down. - We stayed two nights. On the final night, we were still up working at midnight. We were asked to pay our bill NOW since the guy in the morning did not speak English. HUH? - Service was fair at best. It is telling I did not learn the name of even one staff member. I usually know them ALL. Price: Given the level of service and amenities, there are better options in the same range.

I wouldn't say there is anything charming about Zakinn, although there has been some effort to add some variety with shaped meatal furniture. But it was fairly priced, everything worked and it's in a quiet part of town. Three of us spent 3 nights in comfort and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was more functional than memorable.

Friendly staff in a very clean small business style stop over place. The wifi is good in the main building but my room was in a separate building in the back and the wifi could not handle short Skype calls which was frustrating. That aside, it is in a good location close to some good restaurants in a very safe secure compound. The main meal was tasty, I had the chilly chicken and rice. The shower was good with plenty of hot water. The breakfast is basic but good. No real coffee but that is common in the area.

This is one of the best and most affordable options in Iringa. I've stayed at another nearby hotel before Very Good Hotel, highly commendable. Excellent Staff and great hospitality and clean sheets of course :) :)
