Very pleasant place with a cool leafy yard, one is able to walk safely to town if you enjoy walking. Attentive, friendly and very supportive staff. Loved the space in the room that I was allocated. Very good breakfast.

Attentive staff. The manager is very problem solving oriented. The breakfast was very good compared what you are paying for the room. The rooms (at least our room) do not have fly screens, which is very bad since our room was smelly (the smell of humidity and oldness, I guess) the rooms are small and dark most of the time....

Good location in the centre. Not far from the school where I gave a presentation on "Student Centred Activities". Spacy room: Everything worked: shower with hot and cold water, WLAN... Also a kettle to boil water for tea could be used. Reliable laundry Service. Very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast buffet (including hashbrowns).

We booked this hotel through the internet because reviews were generally positive. We were arriving late from Amsterdam and leaving the next day for Zanzibar, so we were there for one night only. We had booked the hotel shuttle from Dar airport and the driver was waiting for us with a sign when we arrived. We were well greeted at... More

Stayed for five nights at this sweet boutique type hotel. From the doorman, to the reception, housekeeping, restaurant staff -- everything was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for more. On arrival, got a welcome cold drink. Credit card was charged right away with no hidden charges. The pool and pretty trees and plants were in the courtyard surrounded by the rooms.... More
