Was at the Hotel March 17-19, in a group of 5. The hotel is on a busy street in the centre of Dar. Found our reservations even after coming from the airport at 1am. Rooms are adequately furnished, problem is the AC that is directly facing the bed. WIFI has good speeds with computer in the lobby. Dining was fair... More

It took the taxi almost an hour to find this hotel due to traffic from the airport and not sure its location. We saw dirt roads within the city and questioned the hotel's location. Finally the cabbie found the hotel and it was a delightful surprise - modern, clean, well located with Indian management. The restaurant had an Indian and... More

If you are staying at Nikko's don't expect a Luxury Service, conditions or amenities. But it is for sure a Very Good place to stay during short stays, or in business trips. In general, the rooms are small and sometimes the internet has some fails. But the hotel is clean, good location, you can have very nice meals for a... More

I stayed at the hotel three nights on a business trip to Dar Es Salaam. Staff was nice, food was good and location right in the city center. All in all good value for money! I recommend it to everyone on a budget.

Being right next to a large mosque this is a real noisy place early in the morning due to the call to prayer over the huge PA system they have. Otherwise nothing fancy and clean. Staff very polite and the food pretty good.

I stayed here with a few people on a business trip! I wasn't at the hotel often, only breakfast and heading to bed. The staff were friendly, always saying hello. I had dinner there my first night and it was quite nice, it wasn't a long wait! They have a continental and indian menu! I wasn't too pleased with the... More

We arrived by ferry from Zanzibar in the early afternoon, and decided to get a room until leaving for the airport at 1am. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in short walking distance from the ferry terminal, and without traffic the taxi journey to the airport is only 15 mins, so perfect location for our needs. We were... More

We spent one night here in transit from Jo'burg to Kilimanjaro and it was an adequate accommodation for this purpose. The neighborhood looked dicey and we certainly would not have felt comfortable walking around especially after dark. The room (< 300 sq ft) we were given was less than half the size that our reservation specified. The WiFi did not... More

We stayed at Hotel Nikko for 2 days and it was great experience. This hotel is closer to town, ferry, shopping area and mosque. The front desk and the managers are great. The driver is wonderful and great with guiding the city. The hotel pricing is reasonable and restaurant is good.
