I awoke from my one night stay to discover bed bugs had bitten me dozens of times. This in addition to the room I had reserved (with a king-size bed) was unavailable and I had to settle for a twin. Despite DoubleTree's worldwide policy of always fixing things to make them right, the receptionist said there was nothing he could... More

I could not wait one more minute to write this review. I am always weary of people who give one star to a review; however this one is much deserved. And this review is from a seasoned traveler who has seen a lot of hotels across Africa. I have also been at many double tree hotels in the US. This... More

I stayed at the Doubletree from May-August while in Dar es Salaam while conducting business in Tanzania. Let me cut to the chase-many of the problems I have seen that were noted on Trip Advisor during my stay were issues I myself faced but I also faced in the many other hotels I have stayed at in East Africa.

Stayed at the hotel for several days. Better rooms are on the upper floors with a view rather than second small building with horrible bathrooms way too old. The biggest problem are beds. They are way to soft. Back pain guaranteed!

The front and lobby of this hotel don't do it justice, however walking through to the back, the view from the terrace and gardens below tells a completely different story - quite beautiful. My sea-facing room was stunning, although I was a little disappointed by the 'not-so-clean' lounger and dressing table stool - I could not sit on them. I... More

Very good environment for conferencing (Peninsula) with good accommodation facilities. Rooms have very stable wi-fi. Very efficient in checking in and service in general. I enjoyed the view around and especially the sunset from the Jetty with a nice breeze. Shopping can be done at the Slipway where you can also get a forex bureau. Staff are very polite, friendly...
