“'Good hotel in town”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

brilliant services, staff are very friendly they are willing to answer questions and assist in any way that they could. Clean and Comfortable rooms to the high standard, hotel restaurant they provide only breakfast but there is option of going to the hotel with your own food stuff and cook, also there is very close good restaurants and is within walking distance where you can have your lunch and dinner. Excellent hotel in Dar.

Room Tip: All the room are at high standard and nice but for nice view of the city you may take rooms on the e...

This is a relatively new hotel and I was quite concerned prior to arrival. My concerns were quickly changed to admiration. The rooms are huge and the service was exceptional. We were greeted with a cold fruit drink which set the tone for a most enjoyable stay. Excellent staff that responded to all of my requests. Hotel provides breakfast but does not have a restaurant. Also note that you can not drink alcohol in your room.

Room Tip: Rooms are large and are equipped with kitchen facilities.

i was there a couple of weeks ago.
when you got to the place during the day i was a bit worry about the area... during the night.. oh dear!!!scary!!!!!

the lack of professionalism is present from the reception... no people skills at all. Iwas welcomed ok.. my girlfriend checked in in the afternoon and she wasn´t welcome at all, in fact from the door to reception everyone was extremely rude...
When i got to the room the housekeeper was still cleaning so i had to wait for her to finish
The safe had no batteries, so i had no choice but to keep all the valuables with me all the time. The TV had a good selection.. and that is all the entertaintment in the hotel... no restaurant no bar!!!!!!! they do some take away from a dodgy restaurant around the corner.. good luck!!!!
when we were getting ready to go out for dinner, we saw a couple of cockroaches coming out from under the mini fridge.. nice!!!
When we came back from dinner to the hotel, the staff didn´t want allow my girlfriend to get in... we had to go and fight (kind of literally) in reception.
The last bad thing was at breakfast. There is a small and very unactractive breakfast room, they star breakfast at 6.30. the day before we ask to have breakfast ready at 6.15 as wen were taking the ferry at 7. the thing is we were late and at 6.40 the breakfast was not ready yet!!!!!!!!!
To be honest, this is very avoidable place. by no chance deserve the number two at the tripadvisor but if you look at all the excellent reviews you´ll see that many many of them are from one single review.. someone who never wrote anyhting and suddenly decide to write about this place because is something never seen... suspicious.. very suspicious..

if you want a hotel, this is not it. If you want apartments, go to JB Belmont.Very nice, clean and safe

This is an excellent place to stay - the rooms are clean, spacious, hot showers, good provisions; the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful; breakfast tasty; and it is a great location for getting around Dar. I stayed here for 3 weeks and soon saw it as a friendly home, when my boyfriend came to join me he was warmly welcomed (which can sometimes be a problem for unmarried couples in Dar). As a 30 year old woman on her own I felt the place to be exceptionally safe, and that all staff looked out for me (one of the managers even phoned his wife to get the best spa in the city for a pedicure!). My one issue would be for the gym times to be more friendly to work hours for women, however this is a minor point and the management did make a special exception for me to attend out of female hours. All the staff from the managers, receptionists, waiters, porters, fitness trainers to the security all went out of their way to help me. I will continue to stay here when I visit and am glad to highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Try and get a corner room if you can (they are slightly bigger) and get a room high up for good view...

I was in Dar es Salaam for one night at the beginning of my trip to Tanzania and stayed here. I was very pleased with the hotel and the service offered.
Firstly, I had wanted to get a bus to Arusha the next morning, and the hotel booked and picked up the bus ticket for me, for the same price as I had thought it would be if I went to get it myself. So when I turned up in Dar es Salaam, I didn't have to worry at all about getting a bus ticket.

My flight from the UK arrived very early in the morning, I was at least four hours before check in time. However, they showed me through to the breakfast room and by the time I was finished, after about 30-45 minutes, they allowed me to check into my room. The room was very large, with a nice, clean bathroom and a comfortable bed. There was a powerful hot shower, air conditioning, and free wifi. It was a bit sparse, and nothing particularly special, but it was clean and nice and felt safe. In fact, the hotel as a whole felt safe - Dar es Salaam, not so much!!!

If I was staying for longer, I think I would have preferred a slightly more personal hotel as this is very much a business hotel with little extra frills. However, everyone was very friendly and helpful and it was perfect for one night.

This is an amazing place to stay whilst enjoying the city. it is located in the city of Dar es Salaam. The rooms are good size, clean and all with windows. The living room had a balcony which you can relax outside and enjoy the sun. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The nightly rates are up to par with the current market. It is a nice place, this is my second time here.

Room Tip: if arriving with a family of three, your best option is 3 bedroom suite.

This hotel is located very closely to the ferry (5 usd taxi). The surroundings is not encouraging to evening walks but I assume is the same situation in other parts of town. The staff is really helpful and trying to make you feel comfortable and secure (a lot of security staff at the hotel).
The biggest disadvantage to me was that having a 2nd floor room there was lots of noises from the street, including some engines working all night long, so better choose higher floors.
There is no restaurant at the hotel, but 5 minutes walk is el bascha - very good lebanon restaurant.
It is not a place for romantic weekend, but good if you need a decent place to stay in dar.

Room Tip: Higher floors not to hear street noises
