My previous review was rejected by TripAdvisor, ostensibly because it was not a 'first-hand' account. Well, I very well stayed in the hotel for 14 days and each of the security breaches which I mentioned were witnessed first hand by me. Maybe, even TripAdvisor does not want that the facts be shared. Since I did not find anything which was... More

Not my first choice in Dar, but since this was the only hotel available in Msasani at the time of my travel I had no option. The Operation's Manager is hands on .. really good, his name is Manvendra Singh, and I must say, whatever is thrown at him he tries his best to accommodate you. you can see that... More

Huge round Lobby enterance with an awesome swimming pool having an ocean on the side. Nice green lush garden and a rastaurant downside. Hotel Rooms are average , AC needs a maintanance. Breakfast was ok - nothing exciting. The overall selling point of this hotel is the location (although a bit far from the city centre) next to the ocean... More

However the service has a lot to be desired the staff at reception (besides the management) spoke little English, my room had no hot water, the food was appalling I had breakfast, well I went to have breakfast and...

Didn't stay here but came to eat. The food was fine and restaurant service too (though I was the only one there). But this enormous hotel seems utterly empty. Had a slightly sinister feel to it - hardly anyone around including staff. When time came to leave there were no taxis and the staff seemed not to care less. Their... More

What a pity to see a hotel with such a good location and what was probably a superb hotel at some time in the past, deteriorating. The rooms are a decent size but have such an overpowering smell of damp, and all the fittings are long past their sell by date. All central facilities are really showing their age with... More

Maybe one of the worst stays i have had the displeasure to experience. Not recommended for any use let alone sleeping in. Service, rooms, cleanliness, atmosphere...abysmal, a low class hostel is recommended more.

The aging dame of hotels in this part of Africa--with memories of its important role in continent-building, regional meetings, and the presence of Nyerere overseeing it all. Beautiful and elegant public spaces and lobby; efficient staff; an above average breakfast to satisfy many cultural options. Best of all: a superb location overlooking the ocean and with the best pool in... More
