I stayed with my daughter here. My daughter needed picking up at the airport in the middle of the night and they did a great job! We enjoyed the breakfasts. And the quiet of the neighborhood. They arranged for a taxi to the places we wanted to see as well.

This hotel is convenient to Slipway shopping area and several decent restaurants. The rooms are larger than most nearby hotels. The bed was very comfortable and the entire facility was clean. All the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Staff are polite but not very honest or helpful. They choose not to admit when they were unsure about something but rather gave an answer that you want to hear. This resulted in me wasting three hours in downtown Dar at the ferry terminal in really poor conditions

My wife and I stayed here for one night recently. Sadly (because of a delayed flight) we didn't get to use all the amenities, like the pool, but they looked great. The location is excellent, away from the bustle of downtown Dar, and walking-distance close to many good restaurants and some shops. The rooms were very good, as you would... More

This is the default hotel used by my company in Dar Es Salaam. My company's hotel choices aren't always very delightful, so I was beautifully surprised to find just how lovely the Dar Doubletree is. It's much more luxurious than I usually associate with the Doubletree brand. My only regret is that since I was traveling on business, I didn't... More

Rooms have great amenities and are clean, tidy and spacious - what you would expect from a Hilton. Wifi was good and reliable. I dont particularly like the bath / shower and my... More

Just about right. Not the best, but pleasant lobby, large conference space, no huge technical issues. Staff cordial. Great views. Wouldn't stay for pleasure. Good location next to Slipway, the shopping center/mall/hotel/bar.

Good location of the hotel, the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are kept clean, and generally the service is very good. The swimming pool works until 11 pm which is very convenient. I recommend this hotel.
