I stayed at New Africa Hotel last week. I was very impressed with the service and the state of security of the rooms. The corridors to the rooms have security lock, only accessible to guests who have room keys. This is commendable in these days of terrorism. The rooms are up to 4 star standard, though the towels are well... More

On a recent business to Tanzania we passed through Dar es Salam twice, each time we stayed the New Africa. The Hotel is central and of a very good standard for the location. The rooms are clean and functional and most things work although the internet conection is at best unreliable.The Thai resturant on the top floor is worth a... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location right in downtown Dar Es Salaam. The rooms are well designed with good furnishings and bathroom. The air con in the rooms is set to very cold, and it's not possible to open the windows, so turn off the ac as soon as you get in there to warm the room up! There... More

This hotel is VERY central, in downtown Dar. It's right on the coast and in a decent location right near where they are building the MUCH NEEDED rapid transport system. The hotel has been renovated, with the rooms reasonably modern and flat screen TVs with satellite channels, although there are parts like the passage areas which show signs of its... More

Clean, well-equipped rooms with nice views over the harbour (the rather good Thai restaurant at the top of the hotel has a particularly nice view). Location's as central as it gets. The pool is small and part-shaded by surrounding buildings, but it serves its purpose. Breakfasts were pretty good. Staff were a bit inconsistent on the front desk: some were... More

To be honest, this is a hotel that would register as 3 out 10 for me. The only goods things are the view from my room, food being ordered through room service and the location the rest is pretty ordinary. The rooms are okay sized, the beddings leave a lot to be desired and the service in general is non-existent.... More

Good service. GREAT Thai restaurant upstairs. Good rooms. Well situated relative to the harbour and fairly good location relative to airport (remember that Dar's traffic is hectic, so this is a relative to others statement)
