4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stumbled across this place and found the most amazing location for a few beers at sundown and when you get hungry big fat pizzas to fill a gap. Great place to hang out, very casual, good crowd, not sure about the music though, disco trance music on an East African terrace ? Big European crowd, obviously popular

This comfortable and charming hotel was made even better by the amazing staff and their superior support. The manager helped me navigate the sticky waters of lost luggage not just by making calls on my behalf to the airport and the airlines until we got answers but also by helping me find suitable clothes for a meeting and find a...

The Slipway is in a good position on the Msasani peninsula, but the room I had in the new wing required many ups and downs of stairs as everything is on different levels. There was a kettle in the room but no tea, coffee or water. Tea and coffee eventually arrived in the morning but no water. The shower door... More
