USD20 which is 5 times less than the hight class and extremely expensive hotels adjacent this hotel. I ti is 20 min to the aiport during nights between 11-00 p.m and 5.30 a.m. Use the airport road to reach the... More

I stayed in sapphire for ten days when i was in dar es salaam. I enjoyed staying there. The staff and management are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. They have a back up generator when power went off.

Staff are helpful but not always the most friendly. We had several questions about transportation and the local area and they seemed bothered to have us interrupt them. The location is not the best but Dar es Salaam is not for wandering around anyway. The room was small but clean and the shower was good. A/C worked well and is... More

I booked this hotel online, but phoned as well to make sure my booking was received. I got a very unhelpful lady on the phone who told me to call back the next morning. When I explained this was impossible she said it was OK. I arrived the next day, around midnight to find out the hotel was fully booked... More

We needed a place for a short overnight and chose Sapphire Court. We were told a taxi had been arranged but upon arrival we found that the driver was not there. We were able to get a taxi easily enough, but it would have been nice to skip the haggling and searching for a driver who actually knew the hotel.... More
