Good service, good facilities all round. Rooms clean and comfortable. Food is of good quality and they have a reasonable variety. Only negative was the bath / shower combo. personal preference is a shower. not my favourite to have the combo, but must say it was clean and working well

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 October 2016

The hotel recently added a Guest Relations Manager, Hassan, a benefit that has become indispensable. Hassan makes all problems go away, of course with the backing of his managers. The point here is that the hotel management caters to meeting the complete satisfaction of its guests, responding quickly and positively to all the needs of the guests. This is not...

Save your money go some place else. Hotel cleaning staff goes into your room after check in for turn down service and helps themselves to your valuables. I would never stay there again. Also had to argue with cleaning staff to let me sleep, when she practically demanded to clean the room.

Housekeeping went digging for gold in my bags while I stepped out for a brief moment. They stole my driver's license and nearly $300 in cash the was buried deep in my bags.

A beautifully appointed facility with great views of the sea. The bouquets of exquisite floral arrangements that adorn the lobby and warm cookie make a perfect welcome as you arrive. The hotel boasts a pleasant, efficient staff team who know how to handle your business. I found it an excellent stay with all my business needs met.

This hotel is located right next to the Hotel Slipway but they are worlds apart. Double Tree has a little 'colonial' and a lot of 'Hilton'. It is more expensive than Slipway but you get value for money at Double Tree. My room was spacious (almost a suite) and very well appointed. The breakfast buffet was excellent and I tried...

I stayed at the hotel as part of a conference package, and while I have no problems with the hotel accomodation itself, the management of the conference needs to improve. During our conference we experienced numerous electricty supply cuts, but the hotel generator did not work properly and it seemed staff had forgotten that we were in the meeting room...

The hotel can probably side with the better ones in Dar es Salaam. Reception is efficient, quick with very friendly staff. Rooms are well appointed (the old bathtubs have been replaced by showers) and have everything you want, especially space and even a proper stand-alone desk with working reasonably fast Internet. Everything you need during your business trip. Only downside...

Doubletree is next to Slipway hotel at Oysterbay. It has a very beautiful garden and pool area. The rooms are too big but soulless and cold. The breakfast was satisfactory. I don’t like hotel rooms without carpet. It is too expensive, there are better options with reasonable prices.
