Habour view Suites has maintained its room ambience over the years. I was last there 2 years ago and opted to try out other places BUT I went back to Habour View and felt like I was back home. The service is good starting with the great staff. I was also pleased to note that AirForce One pilot and his... More

This is an average hotel which is not very expensive that you can stay in Dar es Salam. If you choose the room from with ocean view on 15 floor, you will have a balcony and a very nice ocean/harbor view. Room service is very good except the sudden entries by the house keepers to the room while you are... More

What a nice surprise! I so did not expect this hotel to be this good. The rooms are really nice and a bit "funky", I mean there is a nice big lounge chair in my room (leather), and comfy work chair tall back and leather as well. The flat screen tv is nicely planted in the wall and out of... More

As a regular guest of Harbour View Suites I am always frustrated with the variability of service. Stayed twice in March had one excellent room and one room with most appalling shower. Breakfast for this quality of hotel is very poor, dinner is better with the hotel serving some excellent Indian food.

The hardware of the hotel is mostly good enough: the room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom had ample water and sufficient space. Air conditioning worked well in my room but not in that of my colleague who had to request changing rooms as they could not fix the problem in reasonable time. WiFi was slow... More

I and my friend stayed at this hotel for 9 days during January/February 2015. I had earlier stayed in 2005 but with the extension and additional floors, the hotel is now my favorite place to stay when visiting Dar es salaam. Centrally located, the hotel is very well managed, excellent customer service, extremely friendly staff and clean bedroom/bathroom with all... More

I stayed in this hotel for about 12 nights, my room was large, clean, had a small kitchen, flat screen TV, strong wifi, safe, air con, and well appointed bathroom.
