We stayed here for over a week. The second floor room was okay, though the water pressure was so low the entire time that we had to take the shower head off to get enough water to rinse.

The Nelly's Inn is a quiet modest guest house in the leafy suburbs of Dar es Salaam City. The rooms are quite old but clean, and don't expect so much in terms of service/customer care but convenient and cheap for long stays. If you are looking for elegance and cosy guesthouse look elsewhere.

The Nelly's, or Little Nelly's is a quiet guesthouse about 20 km or 12 miles north of Dar es Salaam in the community of Mbezi Beach. Their slogan is quiet fun and they do live up to the quiet part. There are two main guest buildings, a small outdoor (but covered by a roof)restaurant, and an administrative office set around... More
