This was a recommendation from my boss, who's been staying here a long time, and suggested I give it a go instead of doing the standard anonymous corporate thing. He wasn't wrong: They found me a room in spite of my arrival at 3am a day earlier than my reservation, the service was smiling and personal, the rooms are spacious...

Had dinner at the Alexander's Hotel restaurant at the terrace. The staff were friendly and informed us that we have to make a booking next time. Had a lovely fish with well cooked veggies. The ambiance of the place is so welcoming.

After a long flight we really enjoyed the hospitality of Alexander Hotel. This is a hidden gem in DAR, which I can recommend for a start or end of a safari. The restaurant is top notch. We really enjoyed our time there and will chose this hotel next time again.

The food is excellent and the rooms are spacious and pleasant. Lovely pool area and fantastic upstairs bar and restaurant where you can work in peace or sip a G&T after a day of running around.
