a chain hotel, worn around the edges, saved by sea view, being in an area where you can walk around the seafront and by friendly tanzanian staff. traffic into town very slow in rush hour, as is internet speed. big rooms.

We stayed in this Hotel from the 12th of Dec 2014 and Left on Monday the 15th. We arrived in Dar not having booked any accommodation (Gangsta i Know). We went round many places and didn't like what we found and the prices were ridiculous as well. The last stop was Double Tree. We initially thought the prices would be... More

It is a beautiful location! Serving personnel is very friendly and helpful, like all the Tanzanians I have met. Food served in the restaurant is fresh and really OK, in the form of an international buffet, but don't expect haute cuisine. Hotel has its own generator, so in cases of electricity shut-down, the problem is resolved almost immediately

This towering hotel is off the main road in a quiet area, right on the beach. Not for swimming, except in the pool. The rooms are spacious and clean. Good AC and nice layout. It helps if the taxis know the shortcuts around rush hour traffic. It makes a real difference avoiding some of the main roads. Very friendly staff... More

The family and I stayed here for a few nights on our way to Zanzibar. The website shows lovely views over the water and cookies on offer but the reality was no cookies and our view was literally a few feet from a building right infront of us...to the point that we never went onto the balcony and we kept...

After having a horrible experience at another hotel (Protea Hotel Courtyard), I walked in the Double Tree Hotel without even making a reservation during the season of a New Year. Fortunately, the receptionist confirmed the availability of a twin room - facing the Ocean on the top floor!!! It was just a huge relief on the last day of the... More
