Stayed here for one night on the way through to Arusha. The best thing after a long flight was the pillow - not sure if all IHG hotels offer it, but you get a choice. Everything else was mediocre. The room was large but a bit run down. The toilet kept flushing over so the floor gets flooded. Reception staff...

Nothing special… a bit run down and some of the rooms need the carpet changed. I found the staff helpful but others haven't. The breakfast was good for a buffet with plenty of selections. A bit expensive for what you get but after staying at a few hotels in DAR they all are. For Dar Es Salaam this hotel is...

The roof-top bar was great. Comfy seating, reasonably-priced drinks etc but the staff were not particularly attentive - it was a lot quicker to go to the bar than to wait for a return visit from the table-service staff. We found the staff to be really unhelpful. A simple request for a taxi to the airport took over an hour...
