Very good 8.0 From 20 reviews

Very good 8.0
Comfortable stay at a budget cost
Room was comfortable with fast wifi, however the power to the building turned off twice during our 2 day stay which obviously effected it; in addition, the hot water system needed to be turned on at the wall and so was also effected with the loss of power. The adjoining restaurant, Vista, was very quiet but the food was to a really good standard. I would very much recommend the cheese naan! Overall, giving some leniency to the power loss, I would recommend a stay at Hotel Emerald.

Definitely recommended
Fantastic location and fabulous room. We stayed in a deluxe room that was incredibly spacious with a huge bathtub. The staff were exceptional and helped us organize ubers, gave us suggestions of where to go in the area and really went above and beyond. The owner was there and was incredibly friendly. We felt very at home. The location is walkable and felt very safe. We will definitely be returning.

Hotel Emerald
Good location in the Westlands area. Close to many restaurants, bars clubs and casinos. The hotel is based within a shopping complex on the 6th floor. Staff were friendly and helpful. The girl at reception helped book a day tour which included a tour to the National Park, Baby Elephant Sanctuary, Snake and Crocodile Park.
