We were referred to this hotel by friends who we later found out, obviously like loud music, rock gospel music, at 4 o'lock in the morning. We, on the other hand, do not! Church across the road plays their loud evangelical rock before the crack of dawn, obviously in competition to the corresponding noise from the surrounding mosques. Anyway, neither... More

This hotel has a very musty smell as soon as you enter the front door... And rooms have old carpets. The neighbourhood around the hotel is questionable... Not sure if it's really safe... Especially near the waterfront. But really nice pool area and good restaurants. If you're thinking that a stop in Dar Es Salaam would be nice before going... More

Woken at 6am each morning by very loud shouting/singing and vibrating bass from the Lutheran church opposite. This goes on for at least an hour. Mattress far too soft. 2 hours free in room... More

Have stayed at this hotel thrice. The rooms are OK, the food is excellent, as is the location. On one occasion when we were overcharged for transport, the hotel manager immediately reversed the excess charges. A straight-up unpretentious place that I will go to again.

Stayed here as our business partner was staying there. The hotel was really average. Windows in the bedroom don't open, air-con is noisy. Breakfast was dull, Thai on top of hotel was OK. Back to DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Oyster Bay next time. 100% better and about the same price
