We stayed two times in this hotel and in terms of price/value it is a very poor deal in Dar. There are various other hotels out there in Dar which are of better choice. The rooms seem to be very run down and maintenance does seem only to a minor extent. Air con makes noise like a truck is running in your room, the smell in some rooms is terrible and our cloth stank like we just came out of a pub/bar where some heavy smoking was going on.
The place was recently shut down by authorities due to "environmental issues" (sewage went right into the sea).
I would not recommend this hotel. The hotel does not deserve the name Hilton!
