We spent a night in Dar es Salaam right after camping during the safari and staying in this hotel was truly a good time! Sleeping in a good bed, nice and large room after the tent felt very good!!! Even more because the place was quiet, clean and welcoming. The breakfast offered a large choice and it was very tasty....

Dar Es Salam is the central Eastern City in Tanzania which houses a cacophony of diverse African cultures from across Africa. The good and the bad. The central city streets are busy and without any police patrols as funding is limited. I was robbed at knife point in a taxi by 4 Nigerian and one Ethiopian in broad daylight at...

the location is nice, from the restaurant (not from the room) you have a lovely view over the harbour where the boats to sansibar is leaving. the reception and the rooms are not on the same level so with elevator on the other end its a bit complicated to reach the room, or you thake the stairs. rooms are quite...

We went here because we were 'in transit'. Decent gym and pool, nice service, good breakfast (included). Spacious rooms... nothing to complain about. Except for the boxed breakfast we asked for since we had to leave at 4:30am... only bread and pastries. No fruit, no yoghurt... we were disappointed with that but overall a nice stay.

We originally booked 2 harbour view rooms for 5 people. At Expedia's website this room type was adverstised for a party of 3 depending on the hotel's prior confirmation. Despite our request for confirmation, the hotel never confirmed. Upon arrival on a sunday evening, the staff clearly was not motivated anymore to install the 3rd bed. They offered 2 options...

Our stay was very satisfactory, we got a great room for a great price. King suite room with a great Harbour view and a balcony to enjoy the view. I would highly recommend this Hotel, as it has general store (in the ground floor lobby), restaurants and other features that are useful.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel before going on safari. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre. Rooms are comfortable, very clean and have all amenities you can desire.

We choose a deluxe room and were delighted. A bit expensive but the room was clean, spacious and had a balcony.

Fab views of Dar Es salaam harbour and the city. Restaurant and bar have a certain charm and warmth and service is friendly and sincere. Reasonably priced stays in the centre with fab views but perhaps not the safest of locations.
