Where do I start? The receptionist was not aware of our booking on Hotels.com. She went on to allocate the kids room the other side of the landing / stairwell and lift from our room. The stairwell had no working lights. The hotel layout is far from kid-friendly. Our TV didn't work ... they didn't seem to care too much...

- Quite a distance from the City Centre. - The place is quiet and the rooms were clean. Staff friendly but not professional. Not everything on the menu is available. Ate rice and chicken or chips and chicken. They had wonderful juice though.

I will keep it short. If you are a backpacker and don't expect clean rooms, service, and english talking staff, this cheap hotel i the middel of nowhere will fit you Well. If you don't fit that profil, find something else. I was very disappointed, nothing was like the pictures or the description.

They never had more than a couple of options, despite the lenghty menu. What they did have was well prepared, but very tedious having same food every day. This is...

The level of services has been maintained including transport logistics to and from the Hotel. The location is excellent for working class and people requiring leisure (quite environment). It is close to the biggest shopping mall in Tanzania (Mlimani City) and expressway to the airport. Tour to Bagamoyo and Mikumi National Parks can be packaged. The environment is clean, quite,...

This hotel has a surprisingly high standard compared to other 'unknown' hotels in Dar that are not affiliated to an international network. Rooms are spotless and most have great bathrooms (better than the Doubletree). The hotel used to have problems with the water pump but now it seems to work well. Wireless internet is available in the lobby but not...
