Average rating is due to the location of the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. Also had a balcony as it was a higher category room. Breakfast was hopeless. Right in the city centre but in a shady area of the city centre. May not stay in the future due to the location.

Stayed at Harbour View hotel for work in May 2016. The hotel is within a mini-mall, in the city centre of Dar es Salaam. This makes it central if you're visiting businesses in the city, but there are nicer places to stay out in Oyster Bay. That said, being in the city is an experience on its own - with... More

Stayed here a few hours before departing from the international airport. First off, from the airport the city seems to get less attractive and more scary on the ride. With unending and unorganized traffic with street hawkers selling everything from phone chargers to apples while waiting on what seemed an eternity at an intersection. After a 45 minute ride that...

Anybody travelling on business will find this hotel very convenient as it is at the city center. Has a good restaurant and bar with seating at direct view of the harbour. Very good breakfast. Also has a casino at the basement, where people interested can go. Overall an excellent place to stay.

Comfortable business hotel. Make sure you request a newer room as the old rooms are very rundown and dark. We stayed six nights, rooms were large and clean. We were sorting family affairs and wouldn't recommend that much time in Dar as there's not a lot to do. Beds comfortable. Slightly annoying the hotel is in different buildings so you... More
