This was a good hotel in the middle of Dar. The area isnt great though, and is also punctuated by the sounds of preachers from the mosques nearby who start up at odd hours. The hotel seems to be geared mostly to Muslim guests, and the ceiling have a sign pointing to Mecca. There is a middle-eastern based travel agency... More

A very nice hotel, in the center of the city. Only stayed here for one night, and it was a nice hotel. Nice staff, anice rooms and a good menu. Mostly stayed in the room and watched cable TV, because we arrived late.

Very convenient, clean and comfortable hotel. Couldn't ask for more. Rates very favourable. Easy access to places in town and able to walk to. Small cafés nearby if you need something to eat. Rooms very big and well equipped. Would advise other travellers to consider it.

Good location. 10 minutes walk from the fast ferry terminal.15 minutes drive to the airport ( at night time). Better to take the upper floor rooms, because there is rather noizy on the street! Good place to short-time staying.no troubles wit hot water,a/c or electricity!

Internet access is critical to my work. Theirs was down the two days I stayed. They kept saying it will be back in a couple of hours. Others staying there said it had been down for days and days before my arrival. The air conditioners seem to vent right into the hallway, making them very hot. Television service went out... More

I stayed at New Avon Hotel three times, in December before and after travelling to Zanzibar, and again in January before leaving Tanzania. I found the location very convenient; a fifteen minute walk from the ferry to Zanzibar, and close to the city centre shops, money exchange etc. It isn't an upmarket area, just ordinary, but I found it to...

This hotel is pretty cool. The employees are friendly and so is the environment. I was not disappointed at all. The rooms are WOW! Loved it. Food........ish ish.The place is located in a convenient place not far from the ferry and the famous Coco beach. The only thing that was missing was the pool. This would have been a bonus.... More

I stayed at New Avon for just under a week in April 2013. Before my visit, I was concerned about communicating with staff but I had no problems getting myself understood because their English was more than adequate. I found all the staff that I interacted with, from cleaners to the doormen, very friendly and polite. When we had a... More

I stayed in New Avon mid April 2013 for a week and was thoroughly impressed. Centrally located and hidden in busy street of Dar, it's a real gem.

My wife and I stayed here on a short weekend break and were pleasantly surprised by the level of service and attention provided throughout our stay. Unlike the big chains who tend not to try too hard, the attitude of this Hotel is: "Let's make the guests happy, and they will come back!" If you are looking for a clean,... More
