I recently stayed here on a business trip in Dar. It was quite a comfortable and enjoyable stay and staff were accommodating and helpful, particularly as most of my meetings were held in / around the hotel area. The pool and gym are excellent. Restaurants are quite good, and the area around the hotel has good shopping and some other...

Excellent rooms with Premium Dstv Channels especially for this time when the Champions League, Breakfast is super-fit for a king! I would also recommend it for lunch, corporate functions, dinner or just drinks. The restaurant staff are just fantastic and ready to help.

The Internet pic's were more than a little out of date so my expectations were fair and the price was good. One can not fault the location and the view but that is we're the fun ended for me. On arrival, half of the hotel is painted canary yellow and the other half is colonial/ethnic. The reception area is dark...

I recently stayed at Hotel Slipway during a business trip to Dar and would recommend the hotel to others. The rooms are comfortable and the staff were very polite and forthcoming. The breakfast in the morning was more than adequate and there are plenty of places to eat at night if you don't want to venture far. My colleague and...

I stayed at Slipway first on February for 10 days and second time on March for 20 days… In my first time my room was just above the souvenir shops on the third floor close to the reception… It was a clean and small room. They cleaned the room daily and changed the sheets every two day. The mosquito net...

Pleasant hotel on the beach in oyster bay. The rooms are basic and the A/C is a bit noisy and takes time to get used to. Great restaurant for breakfast and dinner and the staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. There is not much to choose from in terms of hotels which aren't going to cost a fortune in Dar...
