I recently stayed at the Doubletree in Dar es Salaam while my husband attended meetings. I must say the service was impeccable. The staff was very knowledgeable, personable, professional and passionate about the Hotel and their country. The rooms were outstanding, comfortable and clean. This hotel will certainly be my "home away from home" whenever I am in Dar es... More

The stay was generally okay, but from the evening before the day of departure there was no connectivity. Next morning there was a power failure at the hotel. Surprisingly for a start hotel, there was power back up arrangement - or the one available failed as well. The entire morning till I left for the airport early afternoon there was... More

Hotel is very convenient to everything we wanted; banking, shopping, boat trips, scuba diving trips and restaurants. Very friendly staff and very good breakfast. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. We would stay here again.

However, service has improve a lot... More

During a business visit to Dar, I stayed about one week at the hotel. It was a great location, with excellent service, especially the outdoor evening meal on the patio facing the bay! Particularly good food during the evening meal - excellent selection and variety, and the service (especially from wait-staff, Janet & Angel) was tops!

Everything was perfect except one thing - even hotel is near the beach, you can not swim there, but you can use outdoor pool. I recommend it if you are on bussines trip or holiday. If you have a birthday during stay, they can sing a birthday songs for you in swahily. It was very nice ;-)

Double Tree has nice ocean front that makes it a place of choice for one. However, except for the Terrace and runway they have put up to the ocean the place on the beach lacks the attractiveness for one to enjoy the breeze as you watch nice sun set. the Swimming pool is small and once you are relaxing by...

The Double Tree has a beautiful location and grounds with a lot of amenities. It takes full advantage of its seaview, with an evening buffet and terrace from which to watch a beautiful sunset as you dine. The evening buffet was excellent and varied in its selection night to night, and the service was excellent, or at least Aysha Salim... More

I have stayed at the double tree a number of times mostly based on not finding availability elsewhere. Hotel staff are friendly but hotel is dated and not set up for stays longer than two days. The reason is mostly based on poor restaurant offering and dated rooms. One thing however which is appreciated is the warm double tree biscuits... More
