The New African hotel is a nice hotel. It is located close to the Julius Nyerere International Airport, Tanzania. Their rooms are clean and the bed is wide enough and comfortable. The Internet is quite fast. The hotel has rooms designated for non smokers. You can enjoy an ocean view from most of the rooms as a result of the... More

I wanted to like this hotel because some things were great, like the food, many of the staff, and allegedly the fastest wifi in Dar. Some things however, let the place down badly. The airport shuttle booked in advance didn't show at the airport. I had to change my first room because it was so noisy, I could only sleep... More

I was supposed to stay at New Africa for a couple days but the mildew in my room was so awful I checked out the next morning. They have a moisture management problem in the hotel and the mildew in my room was so bad my eyes were watering. They really need to change the flooring and get rid of... More

Decent location. Right by the ocean shore...in the CBD and just a few metres away from Zanzibar Ferry docks. Sizeable rooms...warm and welcoming staff. Decent place to chill on Friday nights...the live bar is beyond amazing. Food. To be modest, they need to fire the chef. Plus service in the restaurant is wanting.

I had booked an airport pick up which was confirmed by the hotel, but upon arrival and calling the hotel 3 times, the hotel transport was nowhere in sight. I had to find my way to the hotel. Check-in was smooth and the front desk was really apologetic about the mix up at the airport, and ended up upgrading my... More

Once the most sleepy of the East African capital cities, Dar is increasingly vibrant and congested. If you are in town for business you should try and stay as close as possible to your office as traffic can get completely jammed. The New Africa Hotel is probably the best location in town, with wonderful views over the harbour from the... More

Good service and facilities for day meetings only. Rooms are nicely decorated, but the interior atmosphere is severely impacted by a moldy smell which hits you as you enter. Staff was informed but did /could not do anything to remove the bad smell. That fact destroyed the total experience of the otherwise nice hotel and I will not use or... More

Its truly been a great experience whilst at the hotel, Friendly staff and cleanliness of rooms is up to mark. The Thai restaurant has amazing food. Its located close to Dar Es Salaam port. I'd highly recommend family and business travellers to check the hotel

It was a business trip stayed for 2 days the food is good and so is the service & staff. Excellent location, taxi easily available. It also has Casino in the hotel. I am a vegetarian and got a lot of option to eat from at Break fast and dinner.

So what should you expect from a hotel in the capital of Tanzania? Well you can get much better than the New Africa and you can get worse to. Its just a question of what you are willing to spend! From my perspective the room was clean (when I got in there - they gave me a room with someone... More
