Harbour View Suites are located at the city centre of Dar Es Salaam. The hotel has spacious rooms and king size beds. They have free WiFi and the staff are quite friendly. Its a nice place for a sop over, however its far from the airport and thus one has to wake up early to avoid the city traffic jam... More

Based on TripAdvisor ratings, we didn't hesitate to approve staying at this hotel as our final destination prior to flying out of Tanzania. But our experience here didn't match the ratings, by a long shot. First of all, the pre-paid shuttle the hotel arranged to pick us up at the airport didn't show. Apparently, the shuttle driver arrived and gave... More

I was here for one night and was pleasantly surprised. Being December in Dar it was hot and humid beyond believe. The room made up for this very big with all the things you need. Free wifi. I could recommend the hotel if it is your first stay in Dar.

We were quoted a good rate in advance via email as we were out in the country and needed a place for a few hours of sleep before our flights out and were recommended this hotel. Upon arrival in the late afternoon we were told a different, more expensive rate and our initial agreement was not honored. The staff remained... More

Arriving at the hotel after a long dusty trip from the bush, we attempted to check in at the rate agreed upon in an email on the smart phone. No ability to print our confirmation in the bush. Upon check-in, the hotel demanded USD $20 over the agreed rate and refused to honor the email. Dropped off in a strange... More

stayed here for 5 days in june. when we checked in, we were told that we had been upgraded at no extra charge which was great. The room was spacious and clean, and the view great, although there is extensive building work, so i guess that will soon change. I booked via internet, and on arrival was told to pay... More

Love the vicinity to the ocean and daily view of the ocean,s comings and goings. hard to locate the reception and geography around on day one, but once there, you find it safe ,private and secure. Food - would love it better if ha a wider menu.

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
