I stayed two nights in this hotel very recently. the room was very good and clean, staff were friendly. however, the water coming out of the tap was hard water, cant wash the soap, has an awful smell, and very salty. I didnt realize how salty it was until i boiled some for tea, completely undrinkable! I woke up at... More

This hotel is actually of a pretty high standard. Rooms are of a quality similar to what one would find in a 4 star hotel in Europe and the US, and bed is large and comfortable. Location is convenient to take the ferry to Zanzibar, but a bit too far from the nightlife of Dar which is on the peninsula.... More

The Mrs and I stayed here just for a week and our compliments to the staff and owners of the hotel, who made our stay a very pleasant one. The room (1034) was large and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was equipped with both a shower cabin and a jacuzzi. The towels, bedsheets and others were... More

The hotel that is rather hidden away on the top floors of a busy commercial tower block, but do not let that put you off. The place is very friendly. The restaurant is attractive with a great view over the harbour. We had an excellent large suite of rooms. The only complaint is that they have some drain smell issue... More

It's not what I would rate top, but it's a reasonable business hotel in the city center. Rooms are reasonably spacious and clean. Some rooms have a kitchen (but not all), which is nice for a longer stays. Generally OK, but after staying there a number of times, there was a time where a room couldn't have hot water. It... More

We paid $180 for an Executive Suite which has a strong moldy smell, a broken troilet seat and no hot water, an a refrigerator that did not work. I only by accident became aware that breakfast was included in the price of the room. I called the front desk and again spoke with the manager as I left in the... More

We celebrated the birthday of my Friend's Son there. The Service was very good and food was delicious. The catering was good. The arrangement was superb. However, it is somewhat costly, but the quality is very good.

Very nice sized King Suite with desk, large TV and convenient bathroom. Lighting was with a key card. View of the harbor was obscured by construction but we did have a nice view from the restaurant. They obviously care about security. Breakfast was a huge buffet with a sufficient variety to please anyone. The service was attentive, friendly and very... More

I'm staying at Harbour view suites. It's a place with very spacious rooms. I was not lucky to get a harbour viewing room and I got a room that had construction work going on right outside which means I can not open my windows and go out into the balcony due to dust and also the lack of privacy. There... More

Big spacious rooms but the bathroom needs some renovation and toiletries should be better . Added attraction is the casino in the basement of the same complex. You get good Indian food. The view of the port and the sea was amazing.
