We stayed one night, on arrival in Tanzania on our way to our Selous safari. The room was huge, bright and comfortable. One negative only: no plug for the bath. The staff are efficient and pleasant, and the manager very obliging about providing an early breakfast Best of all, it's really good value. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend Hotel Sapphire. It is exceptionally well run by the manager Nityanand Upadhyay ensuring the hotel is homely, comfortable, friendly safe and clean and good food. The service was excellent 24 hours a day with either the manager or the assistant manager available at all times. Their professionalism must be commended. During our stay we spend time... More

There aren't many good hotels in the heart of Dar's business district. Most of the 'resort' or chain hotels are on the peninsular which isn't convenient if you're in town for business or to catch the ferry to Zanzibar. Hotel Sapphire is one of the few exceptions. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, wifi, a relaxing rooftop bar, and a... More

We had a nice stay in this hotel. The staff was great. The room clean with everything working. Good WIFI in our room. Delicious food in the restaurant. The neighborhood was interesting with many small shops, restaurants, and street vendors. We would stay here again if we return to Dar Es Salaam. It also happens to be one block away... More

We booked a few rooms here after Zanzibar, ready to leave for a early morning flight. Rooms were roomy (one was missing hot water) and had a good mini-bar. The air conditioner was loud, and had an annoying light. The fridge we had to switch off to sleep, but no big deal. The 10th floor open air had cold beer... More

Stayed here for 40 days and experience was amazing. great Indian breakfast, very helpful staff and best part is location(it is in the town so it is safer than any other place in Dar-es-salam). Rooms are very large with dining table and a small kitchen. I am a pure vegetarian so it is best hotel for me in Dar es... More
