The hotel is very flexible but you put your request early and don't check in at 3 am at least 5 am they will request to have your breakfast following day or depends on your booking plan . No doubt Serena dar Es salaam is the best and has been my favorite choice . I cannot assure you that they will consider your request but usually if rooms are available they do consider it .
Regarding the airport pick up I think they charge 50$ best advice take a uber in dar very cheap indeed I am not sure if uber service is available at airport . You will experience the African Swahili heritage with there new architecture work and there staff is very courteous .
