I stayed at Blue Pearl Hotel several times because of its location: Ubungu. The location is good if you have to leave by car in direction Morogoro and want to avoid traffic jams in the inner city. Apart from the location, the hotel is not the most charming. Rooms are spacious and not too bad, but restaurant and bar are... More

I was a guest of this hotel when at 8 pm Wednesday 23rd September 2014 ,without any advance warning, I was amongst about 25-30 guests thrown onto the street by a bunch of thugs numbering 10-12 as the Hotel had been closed down.

This doesn't serve well as a business hotel at all. I was there for a business conference it was roundly disastrous. It is in the middle of nowhere... if you need to be in the area it might make sense but it is not in Dar proper. The rooms are relatively shabby, the internet virtually did not work, the food...

The hotel itself is well located with government institutions and other UN organisations located close by. For business requirements, the hotel was not suitably equipped with fast internet connection and conference organisation facilities/team. Being a developing country one does need... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights for a meeting being held at the same hotel. The room was like a small apartment with kitchenette, living room and a good size bedroom.
