The best place to stay at Dar-E-Salam is Hotel Sapphire. This place gives you everything conveniently without hassle. The market, restaurant, Temples, Sea shore. The restaurant is very good all delicacies are excellent. Rooms are v good clean. There is facility to cook in rooms you may inquire. You get homely feel.

This is a great place to stay, its rooms are clean and the best is its rooftop dining drinking facility. AC is like always in Africa, noisy, room charge was quite ok. recommend for a no nonsense stay.

If you look at the street and the door leading to the hotel, you will think this is a hole in the wall. Once you enter, it is a different world. The staff at reception are very friendly. They organised to have me picked up and dropped at the airport. The rooms are very spacious. Power is not an issue... More

The rooms are really very specious, TV, WIFI, are excellent. Power is backed up by generators.Excellent staff. The best is restaurant, simply you order and you will get of your choice. The room facing sea are favorable. If you wish to cook food at your room there is facility, whether allowed or not you have to ask Reception.

Average hotel, good situated in the center of Dar Es Salaam. Easy to go to the port in 15 minutes, not waiting hours in the traffic when staying at the Peninsula where you have the expensive hotels. Breakfast is average, Staff are nice, although by staying so many nights, you will find out that they here and there forget to... More

We spent two nights at the sapphire hotel. They have nice airport pickup and the view is nice. Sound proof windows, beds were comfortable and the room was of a good size. The bathroom however was only partly clean and the shower was a bit impractical. Breakfast was ok. Good and safe location though and the resturant had good food.
