Reviewed 19 March 2017

Very cosy and nice rooms, you can cool yourself from the outside hotiness of the city (it is extreme). The staff is okey, central location close to the bus station and the sea. It is safe and there is luggage storage so you can leave your backpacks for sony time in case u need.

Room Tip: Take the room with air condition, it is a hot city

It is good hotel just for waiting a fly or a transfer. Outside is not so good neighbourhood, it is not recomendable got outside before at night (also in all Dar es Salaam).
The price is good. for stay just for little days is confortable but not the best.
The staff is very kind.

It offers nothing very special, but does have clean, cheap rooms including breakfast and wifi that is actually working (at the time of writing ;)) and friendly staff that communicates in English easily. Also there is a restaurant just around the corner (chef's pride) where you can have food all day, including a quick, good dinner for late arrivals that are not happy to go around Dar by night.

Stayed here for one night on transit between Zanzibar and Arusha. Close to ferry terminal. Staff were friendly and helped us organise a bus to arusha at the bus terminal around the corner, as well as escorting us there at 4.45am which was nice, which meant we didn't need to go to the dodgy major bus terminal. Air Con couldn't be adjusted from the rather warm 26 degrees which was not ideal. Everything else ok.

Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure having you. Apologies for the A/C issue. Each A/C is controlled with in-room remote and temperature can be adjusted by the guest. Perhaps the guest was not aware. We will make sure to inform our guests at checkin.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Offer simple en suite single and double rooms at a cheap price. The location is great. The value for the price is good. My room was a little stuffy and the toilet was damp but clean. I am not sure if my room was a smoking room. If it was, I was not informed of it. A note to improve: the breakfast was a little dull. Dar es Salaam is very humid and hot. Fortunately, the room had a good fan.

Room Tip: My room on the second floor had wifi reception.

Many thanks for the review. All our rooms are non smoking; however, guests break the rules on occasion, and sanitizing the room becomes quite a challenge. We are more than happy to relocate the guests in such situations.
Regarding the breakfast, please note that, given our mixed clientele, balancing the tastes of local versus international guests becomes quite a challenge, hence our breakfast menu might not satisfy all, but we try very hard to make everyone happy. Additionally, please understand that our menu list has to be kept small to make the prices very affordable.
Thank you again and best wishes for 2017!
