The first hotel we arrived at in Tanzania: Slipway was clean, welcoming and friendly. The room was a really good size - light and airy. Nice bathroom and comfy large bed. We were very satisfied with what we got for our money. The location is ideal for sundowners at the nearby Waterfront Bar next door too (highly recommended). We enjoyed...

I work in Kibondo, in North-West Tanzania. When I come to Dar for work and also R&R I always stay at the Slipway Hotel. In 3 words, location, location and location. It's right on the ocean and you can spend a lazy afternoon drinking a cold beer, eating a delicious pizza and watching fishermen in dhows sail by. Or you...

Good Morning Tim The best compliment you can give us is to say that Hotel Slipway is your "Home Away From Home" because this is exactly what we aim for.

Located in the very popular Oyster Bay area of Dar es Salaam, this hotel overlooks the old slipway and bay area. Local fisherman go out early mornings to fish for the day. Rooms are clean, neat and spacious. Two restaurants on the premises as well as an array of shops, bank and supermarket. Good value for money.

Once again I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Slipway. I keep coming back because the rooms are comfortable, they have beautiful views of the peninsula from their new hotel extension and the staff are always friendly. If you are looking for a great place to stay close to the CBD, I would recommend Hotel Slipway.

Staying here again has served to confirm just how good I feel about this Hotel. The best way I can describe the rooms is, lightly crispy, so clean, so fresh, so light. The rooms are also spacious, and it's a very comfortable sleep.

Love the design of the rooms, the size and general feel is great only thing that I found a little odd is that there are no exposed power sockets in the room, which means your moving furniture to plug in your phone charger. Otherwise tough to beat with the quality of facilities available at the Slipway..
