Stayed at this hotel as part of our travel through Tanzania. The location in the centre of the city is fine although there are no shops/restaurants in the immediate vicinity, which does necessitate a taxi if you want to venture from the hotel. It is a typical business hotel where you will find few shorts during the working days. The hotel is comfortable, clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The quality of food is excellent and with sufficient variety to eat there for a few days. The rooms are somewhat small (think New York measurements) which is strange considering compared with some other locations we visited in Africa. We understood that real estate in the centre of Dar Es Salaam is at premium because getting in and out of the city during rush hour is murder as we can vouch for. Luckily when you are travelling from the hotel to a location outside of the city you are going at the opposite direction. However if you need to go to the airport at the end of the day please allow quite a bit of extra time. Overall very good value.
