This hotel now known as the Accomondia Hotel is still a cost effective convenient overnight stop for travelers transiting through Dar es Salaam. Room s are decent, food good although a little pricey by Dar standards, just note that the hotel is owned by Muslims so doesn't serve alcohol but the coffee bar is pretty good and and the internet...

I stayed here for one night for less than 24 hours - the place is kind of old and rundown if you ask me. It's conveniently located - only about 20 mins from the airport - and they do offer a shuttle service, which they booked for me prior to arrival. The staff overall was great in my experience, but...

This was our day room hotel at the end of our Thompson safari-Zanzibar experience to wait several hours before heading to the airport for departure back home. This place is a dump. The rooms are awful, humid, musty smelling, and they smell of smoke and old freshener spray trying to cover up the cigarette smoke smell. They're dated and just...

The Hotel is well situated for the airport, just 15 minutes by taxi. The staff were polite and friendly and the rooms were comfortable with air conditioning and free internet. The hotel kindly looked after our luggage whilst we went to Zanzibar for a few days as we were staying there again on our return. We had some problems however....

Stayed there - by now one 11 months ago - and when I am thinking of the hotel I just start to smile! We travelled in organizational-work and stayed in Dar for a week or so, and we found this hotel in a good price-range. The rooms are clean, the restaurant was the absolute best we ever visited in Tanzania...

Located about a 5 min drive from the ferry port, and a short drive to the airport. There are lots of shops around the area, although as a single female traveller, I did not feel comfortable venturing out on my own. I was surprised how quiet it was in the room, seeing as how we are located on a busy...

The location and the hotels own car service makes this a good location for those needing easy access to the Airport. However our driver got stopped by the police on the way from the airport and we were forced to swap into a completely non road worthy local taxi to complete our journey which was an interesting experience. On first...

The hotel is located a convenient distance from the Dar Es Salaam airport, however, with the money you spend on taxi fare getting around, I would recommend staying at a hotel closer to the city or coast, you'll save on taxi fare. Room was standard and clean, the shower however was only enclosed by a shower curtain, so the bathroom...

The hotel used to be the Tansoma Hotel, the old sign hasn't yet been replaced (March 2011), so the airport taxi driver took me to the Paradise City Hotel instead (same management, different location, more expensive), and I had to take a second taxi to find it. It is a joint African/Chinese managed venture, my room reminds me of hotels...

“Being right on the main road one should try to get as high a floor as possible to avoid road noise although the windows and curtains do a fairly good job off dampening out the noise.”
