I booked a room in advance only to find when I arrived that they had given my room to someone else. I had to find another hotel in horrible Dar traffic and a driving rain. Stay away from these guys. They only care about profit, not about you.

So Wistas Inn has a lot of potential, only around a 30min taxi ride from the airport and close to a mall plus Ubungo bus terminal it is fairly convenient. I had email correspondence before my stay although I was slightly worried as one of the members of staff Nixon was replying from his phone and personal email rather than... More

I was welcomed by friendly staff at the Reception and given a clean room with TV and AC. The next day I spent sleeping and just relaxing around. But the terrible experience happen on my third day. I left my cash in my Rucksack, even though I tried to hide it but the House Keeper found it and stole. The... More

I stay here two times this month and my experience was good in general, the rooms are not fancy but they are clean. If you come to Tanzania you should expect a slow service in general, which will not surprise you. Staff at the reception are friendly and willing to help you. staff at the restaurant are ok, you just... More

We found it quite difficult to find Wista's Inn but it was worth it in the end. Our team of 9 runners spent two nights at the inn just as Dar's rainy season was getting started. The rooms are clean and have air con, tvs and on suite bathrooms. We negotiated $ 45 for the double and $55 for the... More

After spending two months working with a charity and pretty much camping the whole time, this little haven was a welcome change. My room was spacious, clean and the hot showers very welcome. I've stayed here a few times during my three month stay and really enjoyed it. 20 mins to the airport (non-peak traffic). If you eat here, the... More

As far as comfort and services probably more of a 3 out of 5 star but due to its convenient location close to the main bus terminal and to the mall makes it worth it. I've stayed here several times, last time they were building up a new wing and the price had gone up a bit. Clean, safe, and... More

Visited Wistas (restaurant) 2 times. During both visits I probably experienced the worst service I've had anywhere which is a shame because the establishment is beautiful and has a lot to offer for those looking for a quiet setting with a natural shade to escape the Dar es salaam heat. My experience I waited about 5 minutes before I was... More
