The property is beautiful with several bars\places to eat. The pool is a great hangout spot well until the night. Employees are very professional and have great attitudes. Great proximity to many places!

We stayed 2 nights ..location ok and rooms good .. Staff very nice and helpful .. But too expensive for what is offered. The drinks at poolside bar very expensive so find a nearby pub to have a few drinks if you want drinks at a reasonable price without being ripped off

Perfect place to get back to after a day's work in Dar es Salaam. A piece of paradise. Quick check in (Thanks Khatija and Hassan), warm welcome, excellent service, great room service food and stunning views. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Taxi services always available outside the hotel. Mostly business individuals noticed at the hotel but definitely family friendly. Highly... More

awesome - staff in this hotel are the best I have seen so far Location is perfect for me as I have to use the close by restaurants and the pubs around are just one of a million. I love the samakai samaki on Saturdays. which is about 2miles away. Lovely DJ. I cannot fault this hotel

Was here for a long weekend and what a lovely time I had. The hotel is nicely located away from downtown which I especially liked. The lady who checked me in was wonderful and upgraded me to a suite which was very nice. The breakfast was quite good with a nice selection but alas, nothing gluten free. From someone who... More

Its one of the most unforgettable stays. The hotel has a very relaxing environment. The staff is always ready to assist when ever need arises. I come from a landlocked country and was impressed by the location of the hotel from the sea. I spend hours gazing out into the ocean. I will definitely take my daughter to Dar esalaam... More

It's a Hilton so can use your Hhonors benefits. It's got a great view (if you get a sea-view room). It has a very nice pool and the beers are cold. The location is great depending on where you plan to go given the traffic challenges. Mostly it is in a safe area, it's ok but nothing special.

I booked into doubletree because it's close to close to where friends stay in dar. The traffic is terrible everywhere except the peninsula I think. I arrived very late , 3am but the front desk staff were great. All awake and ready to help with a speedy check in. My room was big, clean and well furnished. Breakfast times are... More

I have stayed here a number of times out of necessity or our associates booking me there but will not do so again. The rooms are humid, smelly and dark. If you are unfortunate enough you will land up in a room where staff are permanently passing by your window necessitating that you keep your curtains closed thereby adding to... More

Its a mediocre Business Hotel. The facilities like the pool and gym are at acceptable levels. The staff by the pool and services are nice. The rooms by the pool side are old , humid with poor lighting. Noisy air conditioners. Insensitive managerial staff , clueless about the needs and requirements of their Clientele. Definitely NOT coming back. Prasanna Karthikeyan.... More
