We were not expecting the lavish treatment, hospitality and quality of food. stayed twice while on way to mines in the northern part. The only blemish, if you must point out, was the narrow entry n side lane. Special words for the GM and chef. Shall always return and send more friends. tej khurana atlanta.usa.

Room was clean and big. Food was very tasty in Sino Thai Restaurant which is on 1st floor of the building. Hotel Staff was courteous. Overall didn't faced any problem. Gym area is quite small. It needs to be worked out. The only thing which is missing was swimming pool.

I have seen the pic online for this hotell and was not really impressed. But I was really impressed. The service the staff wow. Amazing. And the food in the restaurant was really good. There was one thing to complain about and that was the shower. Other wise it was great.

I was not expecting a lot of this very average hotel... and it has been confirmed. Situated in the center of Dar es Salaam, it does not offer any opportunity to go out. The standard rooms are very basic, large but without comfort. The bathroom is poor. The breakfast is not a proper breakfast. Nothing was appetizing. I will never... More

Absolutely humungous room - a suite, in fact. Kitchen, living room, huge bedroom area, and a balcony looking over the centre of Dar, minarets in the background and call to prayer echoing out at sunset... All in all great value for money (and you can find good deals on expedia), spotlessly clean, lovely decor, (roses on the bed, even! quite... More

Urban Rose is a great bet, if you have work around the town / city center. Crowded location, may not appeal at the first, but in Dar most hotels in city center have similar challenges. Just a reminder this is a Serviced Apartment. Positives : 1. Cleanliness 2. Staff 3. Food (those who like Indian cuisine) 4. Internet Connection Speed... More
