We spent two nights here in July, 2016. The owner is fantastic and was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was good and the room was small but adequate (I hear other rooms were bigger). We were able to take a long walk to the ferry's and around town from the hotel - the location is very good in a large... More

This is my second time here and the staff/service are just excellent. The food is yummy and the self baked brown bread is to die for. Very convenient location and clean room. And wifi everywhere. Breakfast has a good spread. It's run by an Indian so the Indian food is amazing.

I had to leave a horrible hotel in the muzungu area, and ended up at this one. The staff were lovely, from the security staff outside to the owner himself welcoming everyone. There is a kind of loud call to prayer in the early morning, but if you are a sound sleeper, you'll be fine. I asked to be moved... More

My initial experience was not great, until we told them of the issues I had and the manager took care of me personally. The staff are quite helpful. Their head chef is Indian so expect Indian dished for breakfast in addition to the regular fruits and cereals. They also offer Indian and Chinese cuisine however, you have to ask for... More

We (mature couple) stayed for 3 nights while touring in Tanzania in October 2015. We wanted to have a reasonable place in the downtown so we could walk out to tour, but not overly expensive. Hotel Nikko Tower meets that bill. The facility is in fair-good condition, and our rooms were average size but clean and well-equipped. The location is... More

Stayed 2 nights with my male business partner. Had booked a standard deluxe room that they advertise to be 51m2 but was in reality 20m2; wouldn't be bad they review their geometry! I was upset that l had to pay a supplement of 20$/night to get very narrow and squeaky twin beds. Very bad storage space for clothing; just 2... More

Not the greatest journey to get here - traffic horrendous, so much so we had to walk the last street or two having left our taxi because of a ridiculous jam. We had heard the Dar traffic was bad, but didn't expect it to be this bad! Nonetheless this hotel provided an excellent base to relax for a night before... More

This hotel isn't much to look at from the outside but is good value for money, very friendly staff, decent restaurant and very clean, comfortable rooms. Wi-fi available although it went a few times. Nothing to complain about. Would recommend to others who are transiting through Dar es Salaam as good place to use.

Outside is pretty rough --plenty of traffic and dirt roads, but security at the front door and a lovely reception area make you instantly welcome. My room was very good,air-con plus ceiling fan, TV, fridge,plenty of tea and coffee with room service to back up any other needs.
