Reviewed 23 July 2016

Very good hotel, and probably one of the better alternatives around, nice large and comfortable rooms, satisfactory service and excellent food makes this a great place to stay in Dar. A little out of the way if you are having meetings, but if you are not dependent on being in town I would choose this.

Double tree delivers a very good hotel service. I had no complaints about the hotel. The only minor issue is when you are coming from the airport, the taxi takes a long time through city travel, which can't be avoided. The hotel is situated in diplomatic area of the city.

My recent stay at the DoubleTree Hilton in Dar es Salaam was one of the most enjoyable hotel experiences I've had lately (and I travel a lot!). The big difference is that it is clear that the hotel has paid a lot of attention to selecting extremely personable staff and then training them so that they are entirely customer-focused, rather...

This hotel offers quality service and food, especially some good finger lunches at the terrace and pool areas. Great views over the bay from the Terrace. The hotel is located conveniently in the OysterBay area, close to the Slipway Hotel and slipway for boating excursions to the islands. Safe surroundings

Durban, South Africa
Reviewed 19 July 2016

This is one of the better Hiltons I have stayed in. We stayed twice in a couple of weeks, briefly, in transit basically, and barely saw it in daylight. The approach is unprepossessing, but once inside it is clean, not particularly impressive, and typical 4-star in its reception area. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and an absolute treat after...

Great property. Well decorated and safe location near some vendors for last minute gifts to bring back home. Pool nice and well maintained although there are not enough chairs to lay on. Lovely place to watch the sunset. Clearly visible security on the property. While it is close to the states in most details, the bathrooms on the Hilton honors...

Had a short stay at this hotel for a business trip, service was very good. Breakfast very good for me the variety of food available could have been a bit less.

The hotel was fantastic, greeted in Hilton fashion with a nice warm cookie. Do yourself a favor if you not a Hilton Honors member join before you book. You get a great rate when booking the hotel and stay in HHonors floor of the hotel. Room was modern and spacious. Didn't have hot water the first night but sorted out...
