I have stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is in the CBD and close to Julius Nyerere International Airport. The rooms are spacious depending on your needs. The staff are experienced and humble. The porters Benson and or Emmanuel and the receptionists Magdaline, Carine, Shariffa or Hawa. These receptionists are experienced and speak very good English. They know their work well and how to help the clients. They answer most of your questions and are available to help any time. There are two restaurants which offer nice Indian foods. The hotel is well located within reach to the city centre and the airport.

Arrived at the hotel after a really long trip from UK to find a really nice hotel staff ultra friendly room really clean. A a receptionist who had already received a couple of phone calls from friends asking if we had arrived yet. She straight away passed them on to us and as soon as they got in touch again assured them we had arrived and passed on a message that we would be ready to go out with them in an hour for dinner. Wi-Fi is really good as well In fact we have already booked a night there the day before we return to the UK so not to get stressed out after a long drive back to Dar Es Salaam

This hotel is located very near to city centre. Rooms are not big, though they look big in photos on Booking.com. Breakfast is so-so, nothing great to write about. Hotel does not provide currency conversion, so either get your money exchanged before coming, or you would have to go to bank nearby and stand in a long queue, if you need local currency. There is an Indian restaurant on the ground floor, food is good. Not a bad place to stay.

I stayed there for 5 nights and the stay was wonderful. From staffs to Indian food everything was good. However the hotel taxi service is way expensive as I was being charged 80000 TZS for airport pickup where as the time of departure I took Uber and it costed only 9000 TZS. I took their taxi services for city also couple of times and it was super expensive. Besides this it is truly a gem with close proximity of Airport and City centre.
