Very good services, staff are attentive and willing to help customers, had a very good overall experience. Unlike other parts in Tanzania, staff at the hotel easily communicate in English which makes life a little easier. I believe they are also able to communicate in many other languages. Enjoyed my short stay in the hotel

Great hotel, nice rooms, amazing sea views and most important excellent service. Stayed at the hotel more than 6 times and it's always a pleasure to return. Make sure to ask for a seaview room. And finally enjoy the huge chocolate chip coockie

My first time to Dar es Salaam was for a business meeting - WOW I absolutely loved it - The hotel is very well situated and in close proximity to Slipway centre - Great day and night entertainment - excellent networking and meeting location

Room was clean but there was a very strong sewage smell; perhaps because it was during the rainy season and there was flooding everywhere. Some staff were very pleasant but a few ruined the experience by assuming the change from my bill was their automatic tip! Twice I had to demand for my change so I could then decide whether... More

I have sadly to admit, that I was expecting better of the HILTON group. Rooms are spacious, but the stench out of the plumbing is not much fun. Infrastructures are fine and cmoplete, gym, decent pool, beautiful garden and pier into oyster bay, a short walk and you are at "Slipway" shopping and restaurants... a prime location that deserves better...

The hotel sits beautifully on Oyster Bay. The accommodations were large and well kept. The Facility Dinning Center was clean, timely, and very outgoing. The only issue with the facility was the slow rate of speed of its wireless internet.

So I must confess I was only at the Double tree for 1 night (really more like 8 hours) but it was a pleasant stay. I've stayed in several hotels in Dar and passed by the Double tree on multiple occasions without actually going in so my surprise on this visit is expected. Really well done decor and apportioned room...I... More

the Hotel very nice witha a lot of high standard. the people very helpful. Only the internet connection is on a very low level. The area is very secure and the rooms are very nice equiped. Sometimes the air conditioning was set to a very low temperature.

My husband and I visit Dar fairly often. We have stayed here 4 times and will defiantly stay at this hotel again. Its the best positioned hotel in Dar es Salaam, far from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Dar and yet in a secure area close to restaurants, bars and shops. Excellent and very attentive service. The whole experience... More
