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

I stayed in the Urban Rose Hotel for a week and I really enjoyed my stay. I was here for work and the hotel was really conveniently located for me, only TSH5000 taxi ride from the National Museum where I was working. I was greeted at reception when I arrived with a cold glass of juice which was especially lovely... 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

We stayed here for only half a night before our flight back home. We had a really big apartment with a couch, big tv, a bathroom, kitchenette and more than enough space to sit and store our things. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful, the food at the restaurant was excellent. Another plus was how close the hotel is to... More
