This is the default hotel used by my company in Dar Es Salaam. My company's hotel choices aren't always very delightful, so I was beautifully surprised to find just how lovely the Dar Doubletree is. It's much more luxurious than I usually associate with the Doubletree brand. My only regret is that since I was traveling on business, I didn't... More

I had a really good stay at the DT DAR. Staff are super friendly and efficient. The views are great and its in a fairly quite area. Rooms have great amenities and are clean, tidy and spacious - what you would expect from a Hilton. Wifi was good and reliable. I dont particularly like the bath / shower and my... More

Just about right. Not the best, but pleasant lobby, large conference space, no huge technical issues. Staff cordial. Great views. Wouldn't stay for pleasure. Good location next to Slipway, the shopping center/mall/hotel/bar.

Good location of the hotel, the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are kept clean, and generally the service is very good. The swimming pool works until 11 pm which is very convenient. I recommend this hotel.

On my arrival in Dar es Salaam on March 8, I was very tired because of the long waiting time in Nairobi to catch the connecting flight. I arrived at the hotel at 9 p.m and I was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed with a glass of orange juice and warm cookie in paper bag. I didn't bother to eat... More

I have stayed 4 times in the Hilton and every time I encountered a bad experience. Besides smelly rooms and dirty not working bathrooms, I would be woken up by loud construction workers repainting the outside of my window early in the morning. But the worst was that I got very sick from the icecubes in my drink. It turned... More

The size of the room was huge but that's basically where the pros ended with this hotel. The halls were dark, moldy, and smelly. The bathrooms are very dated and the showers and sinks don't always drain so it will overflow - the plaster and paint was also peeling off the walls and the sink area (not something I expected...

Have stayed here 3 times and each time you stay your impression of the hotel diminishes. Its located in superb location with nice views of the bay. The first thing you notice is the generally average build quality and average furniture - all a bit cheap from Dubai. Example Wires and plugs that dont work properly, cheap couches in the... More

I love this hotel. I kicked in myself in the foot for staying elsewhere weeks before. The food is awesome, they make one of the meanest pizzas I've ever tasted. The setting is amazing, I enjoyed the sunsets over beautiful ocean views. I would come back to this hotel in a heart beat. The only let down was the transfer... More

This was my third trip to Africa and my first time to Tanzania. I arrived on Sunday 3/8 and found the room service particularly effective and helpful. I received full satisfaction from the service of Doreen who is a polished, agreeable and friendly employee of the hotel. With many like her, people would always love to come and stay here.... More
