Tonight is the 3rd sleepless night in a row in DoubleTree. After spending 2 nights in a room overlooking the backdoor of the restaurant finally I'm in a different room. There's constant humming of 65 dB with the aircon off. After the first sleepless night I was asked to wait another night to be transferred to another room. Yesterday there was a power cut lasted a few hours. The breakfast is not great, the fruit served is not always ripe, the selection is average. There's hardly any seafood on the menu which is strange considering the location. The staff is nice and helpful and the location is great. It's a shame you pay $170/night for such a disappointing service. I stayed in the Hotel Serena in downtown where they have a wide selection of fresh seafood and tons of fresh and tasty fruits. I decided to stay in DoubleTree because of its better location but now I can see it was a mistake. Despite I'm a HH member I got the worst room in the hotel, no apology, no upgrade. I really love this beautiful country and its genuinely friendly and welcoming people but if you want to have a nice time in Dar Es Salaam stay away from DoubleTree.
