The room was much better than I expected - large, clean and airy at a very fair cost. WiFi is strong as well. However I got lacklustre reception when I arrived and the service at Le Cafe is really wanting - we waited long to be served despite the fact that there were only two other tables occupied.

Great ambience, good food, clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. Location: Within the peninsular, the hotel is quiet and ideal for business and work. Traffic from Dar city centre may be crazy.

The most noticeable feature of this hotel is its large room sizes and abundant space available per room. Cleanliness was always maintained and the quality of service above average (compared to other hotels in the region). The rooms are quite plain and the interior decoration needs a much needed revamp that adds the extra bit of boost to the visual... More

The hotel seems recently refurbished as everything is modern and up to date. Rooms too are very spacious and clean, staff are on the whole very friendly and for business the hotel is fairly well located. Be warned that getting in and around the city is not to be underestimated! Even short distances can take a long time. The let... More

Room is large and well arranged. Bed is comfortable though short (weirdly so). People above 185cm would have their legs sticking out of the bed. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Only two major complaints: 1. Water pressure really sucks. 2. Breakfast is OK but not better than that. No eggs, one sweating cheese, no veggies, plain sliced bread. All in... More

Saw all the good reviews and the rate was good, still expensive but compared to other hotels in DAR, not too bad. Clean, spacious, clean linen, working showers, hot/cold water. Big room with couch. Staff efficient and friendly. Breakfast was boring, few choices and not that good at all. Good business hotel but if you seek more than a room... More

I stayed here for four days on a business trip to Dar. , and will definitely come back. The rooms are very nicely done, spacious and clean. The staff is very cooperative and helpful. The best part is the location, it's away from the city's hustle but not very far. Lots of restaurants and bars are walking distance. A special... More

I ended up at this hotel almost as a last minute call as all others usually used hotels were fully bocked. However since this visit probably I will check availability on this hotel before I search for any other in Dar Es Salaam. Why? Just Because I had all I wanted and even more than expected!
