I did not actually stay at this hotel, but still felt compelled to write a review and thank the hotel for their amazing service. As a backstory, I arrived on the ferry from Zanzibar and had about 4 hours to kill before my flight out of Dar es Salaam airport. I had read about the Kempinski having nice restaurants and a rooftop bar so I thought it would be a nice place to spend the time.
I was greeted with a warm welcome by the bell service, and even when explaining that I was just looking for dinner and drinks, they were extremely friendly. He took my bags, arranged a taxi service, and explained the various food and drink options at the hotel. At the time I had requested, the hotel car was waiting for me, and and the porter already had my bags ready and and asked about my meals and time in the bar.
The food at the restaurant was very good, and was a nice treat after being at some fairly rustic places in Arusha and Zanzibar. The "Level 8" bar was a very nice set-up and had great views of the harbor and the city.
Overall I was very impressed with the service at this hotel, and would definitely stay there the next time I am in Dar es Salaam. Thanks again for the warm hospitality!
