One of the smallest hotels in Tana, the property has gained a reputation as one of the friendliest places in the city. Each of the six bedrooms is decorated with vintage furniture, but include a splash of contemporary styling to lift the design and although not all rooms have showers, all have traditional baths. The bar and restaurant are open and designed to allow you to soak up the view. Pre-dinner drinks are served in the drawing-room, which is covered in photos and works of modern art, the funds from the sale of which go to a local charity and are often a great conversation starter. Lokanga is a really fun place to stay, colourful and stylish with the best views in town.
