It was my first time to Dar es Salaam and I had just Google's a hotel and this one came up. I am not disappointed with the place. The service manager was really polite and friendly. The rooms are good, with Air Conditioning thankfully. The location is great making it easily accessible. The only down side is they need to... More

The main reason for rating this average is the location. It's not in the centre, nor is it anywhere near oyster bay. it's a bit of a nowhere area, off the main road. So it's a bit of a trade-off; you get the room for really excellent value (it's really, really cheap and perfectly ok if rather cramped) but then... More

I had deliberately chosen the hotel as it was not in the middle of Dar - with the intention of catching up on sleep having done some intense work in the preceding week. Wedding on the first night with the bass virtually booming me out of bed! Was assured that there would not be any noise the following night but... More

Although the Mbezi garden Hotel is out of town by some way it is fully worth the effort, as once there you are treated like family and all the staff soon get to know you and you feel relaxed and at home. Rooms in the garden are really great a place where you can sit outside and relax or even... More

Besides the odd glitches, the hotel is tops in our list, we stayed for the whole of 12 days, cottages are cozy and reasonably clean. Its a bit far from the city but close to white sands and some more scenic spots. Food is good but they need to bring some more variety in their breakfast menu. All and all... More

Big rooms with basic bathrooms-- complete with hot water, screens, mosquito nets, some rooms with refrigerators. Most rooms are bungalows within the complex grounds. Decent location, although road to the property is not paved and can be hard to access on rainy days. Rooms were clean but somewhat worn. Breakfast was excellent and staff helpful.

Mbezi Garden Hotel is located not very close to the city center of Dar es Salaam (approximately 40 minutes drive from the harbor). During the rush hour the drive could be even much longer. The room rate is quite cheap. The hotel is situated in a residential area and the place is very quiet and calm. The hotel has some... More

The hotel is clean and the price is modest. Some improvements required on the food though. The staff was very receptive and friendly. The hotel is at a good distance from the beaches of mbezi and Kunduchi

The staff were so nice and helpful. Rooms small but fair enough. Food requires stepping up a bit. Being outside the crowded city center of Dar and close to the beaches north of Dar is just the perfect place for a budget trip. easy to access Mlimani City and Dar city center.
