HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed November 5, 2016

Having made a reservation for December it reminded me that I had clean forgot to do a review from my last stay in May. I had been pre-allocated a suite and arrived at the hotel early - about 9am. The current occupants had not left out, and knowing that I had travelled overnight from Europe, Vanessa on reception said that...

A really nice and price worthy hotel. After changing hotels after a "not so nice " experience the Double Tree staff really made me feel at home. Fifth floor with a fantastic view overlooking the ocean. Clean room with everything you need. The poolarea with the palm trees all around. Very friendly staff and excellent service all made my stay...

Great breakfast, quiet rooms, cold ac, very comfy bed. Internet poor depending on room, just buy a cellular mifi and skip hotel Wi-Fi. Excellent weekend buffets and the Friday cover band is amazing. Close to Slipway restaurants and shopping.

Great service. Folks are pretty warm like most Tanzanians. The location is great easy to get into town and access to the beach is a great bonus. Would recommend business and leisure booking without reservation.

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Reviewed January 21, 2017

Located in the sub-urban area of Dar es Salaam the hotel is good for work, conferences and leisure in the beaches and restaurants. City and other views are best in the evenings especially for picture taking. There are excellent restaurants within the hotel as well as in the surrounding area called Slipway with a choice of them within walking distance.

This hotel is great. The views from the rooms are phenomenal (if you get a sea-view room), the pool is great and the staff are friendly. You can't really swim in the ocean from here but you can at the hotel next to it though

Very comfortable rooms, almost sea views if it was not for the lush palm trees. Good, but small, Gym, good seating around the pool, with sea views. Wifi worked well and breakfasts were more than adequate with a wide range for all tastes. Good service once more. Good location near Slipway for more restaurant options, supermarket and craft shops.
