I didn't have high expectations going in but I thought it was a little bit worse than I expected: -Service was poor: felt like people did not care about our concerns and a meal that we were told would take 35 minutes too over an hour -Food was average: Once we got our meal we were definitely underwhelmed. Dry and...

Arrived very late so staff clearly tired, no water in room but able to buy some, bed comfy and basic. Shower ok. Breakfast pretty early so not much turn around time for staff - unusual beef stew offering which didn't go down as an option for most of us. However it is transit hotel and did the job

We stayed here on lay-over, and it was perfect for this purpose. It was clean, quiet and not expensive We arrived at 2am and checked in without a problem. We were allowed to stay until our afternoon flight. Within 5 minutes of the airport. Cabs are only $5 and are there with every flight.

The hotel is very close to the airport which is great for an overnight stay. The room was very clean but the bathroom was smelly and didn't function properly. You definitely want to wear flip flops in the bathroom. There was air con which was well appreciated because there can be a bit of noise from outside. Definitely do not...

The Transit Motel Airport in Dar Es Salaam was very neat and clean except for the bathroom which is in a horrible condition. We stayed in room 6 and the handle to the washing-bin was broken and could in fact give you a terrible cut if you did not take care and the shower was dirty and did not function...
