Since I reviewed this Hotel last year when it unfortunately closed down while I was there , I have since been back on two occasions. I can therefore report that the Hotel has been fully restored to its previous condition.The staff are very friendly and try to ensure your stay is to your satisfaction.

We were put up in the Blue Pearl by Precision Air when they cancelled our flight to Arusha after been at the airport for around 6 hours. The hotel staff were pleasant and offered us some juice but no food. Our rooms were adequate for a very weary traveller, the beds were clean however the shower recess could do with... More

The first night the A/C in my room exploded and started sprinkling hot water and I got several burns as I tried to get of the room. I received no apology or deduction on price--that's kind of hotel this is. Elevators which never work, internet doesn't work, rooms are shabby and need renovation, but the price is still almost £60... More

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...

This hotel was recommended by a local partner as the destination for a capacity building workshop for a UN organisation. 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
