I stayed at City Royal Resort Hotel for two nights in March. It is closer to a budget hotel than a luxury chain. But if your expectations are right, you should be very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is outside of the central district, but it is right across the street from a brand new, and upscale shopping mall that also has a Nakumatt, which can be useful if you need small things. The mall also has a bar and several restaurant - of which the Indian restaurant was particularly good, even if it was set in a food court-like situation. The rooms were a bit ill constructed, as has been my typical experience in Africa. Water pressure is light and there was no shower curtain in my room. But given the rates they charge, I was generally pleased. The room was mosquito free. To top it off, I stayed with City Royal over my birthday (and very far from home and family), and the staff very unexpectedly brought me a cake and sang me happy birthday! There was no way to eat it all on my room so I brought it down to reception and it was gratefully received.
