The service was quite slow even though there were not that many people...the food wasn't so bad,,,I loved the tea though... I love that it sits right by the ocean so the views are great...but they need to pick up on the service part of... More

I stayed at this hotel two years ago and something was stolen from my room. I haven't stayed their since but decided to try it again. I was equally disappointed with the service. They didn't have internet for three days and were not too concerned with resolving the problem for their business guests.

The hotel is located a long way out of town which means taxi rides each way and with heavy traffic, this can take a long time. Every time we ordered food in the restaurant, the waiter got the order wrong (and English is my mother language). The internet was terrible. No reception in the bedroom and patchy reception in the...

I wish I could give it a negative marking, I would! We stayed in room 617 which apparently is in the basement (though the elevator reads ground floor). There is a strange smell in the corridors of this particular building at least (It is the building that is closer to the ocean not the road). We stayed here for 4... More

I spent two nights here prior to a safari, so that I could recover from jet lag. I made the reservation via Hilton website and the price was much lower than the downtown Serena hotel ($300USD for both nights). Only downside is that due to Dar traffic, it was a 90 minute drive from the airport but I looked at... More

I checked into the Double Tree, got my warm cookie and was escorted to my room. The room was standard, the bathroom, left much to be desired. However, the real star of the show was the wifi. It was fast, reliable and I was able to skype and make several google voice calls with my family. This place is perfect... More
