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.

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
