“Sleep Inn in Center (Jamhuri St)”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Sleep Inn that is in the center has good location, nice rooms and good price. There are very few mid-range hotels, all are budget, but really bad or very expensive. Nice balcony, big room, AC and fridge (it was really evening very hot outside, so cool drinks in the evening was a bonus).

Room Tip: With balcony, high as possible

we stayed there 2 nights (before and after the safari) and must admit that initially we expected less. Rooms are nice and clean, bathrooms are also good (warm water available). Breakfast is allright - especially after budget accomodation on safari :-) - there is Coffe, Tea, Juice (this could be better), fruits, sausage, beans, eggs, pancackes, jam, butter - open from 6.30
People in the hotel speak english and are rather helpfull -the security guy accomponied us to the ferry in the morning and they also let us use their phone for free to call tour operators and hotels).
The city hotel is also located very close to the ferry (5 min fast walking).

Some minor critics - rooms are sometimes loud (but only because of a huge construction site infront of the hotel, and the muezin screaming like hell in the evening and at 5 in the morning for about 3 minutes (we were there during ramadan) - but this is not really hotels fault). They also do not have an restaurant, but you can order a very delicios indian food - which comes pretty fast. Yea and there are not flexible to serve breakfast earlier - because the staff is coming from outside the town and if you have luck you can have it at 6.15.

But all in all we were very satisfied and would reccomend to travelers stay there.

Room Tip: ask for room which do not face the construction side (if possible)

The room size is very little. Reception is not good. They do not accept any type of cards. location also not good. There was no security in the room. No lock system in the room. so it is not safe to keep you baggage.

We Stayed there in june 2013,we got an excellent room with cable and breakfast for a double @ 65$ per night..the only alarming thing was that despite making us wait for 40 min before we shifted our luggage,they didnt clean the bathroom well ,that was disappointing..the WIFI also didnt work in the room,that was a draw back,being a traveller WIFI was essential and we were told that it would work..great spacing in the room and breakfast was also not too bad given the price and location.with some small improvements in service i am sure we would like to go back there again !! it was close to ferry,that was a plus point.

Room Tip: Go and see the rooms before you decide you want to stay there.also dont rely too much on booking via...

This was a very disappointing hotel given the claims on the hotel's web site. Anyone who has ever stayed in a boutique hotel and expects anything resembling this will be sorely diasppointed.


On the plus side it is cheap, and there was a fan and decent air con in the room. That is about it.

On the minus side, the location is not great (no local facilities), the internet was terrible, the room was very basic and fixtures old, the restaurant was very poor (and took an age to deliver anything), the service was disappointing. As an example, the maid knocked on my door asking to clean the room. I said I would be going to a meeting at one pm, so could she come back then. She came back a little after 12:30 and said... it's one o'clock.. do you want your room cleaned as I am finished. I declined and took a fresh towel.

This may be ok for someone on a tight budget, but I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel

This was basically like a cheap multi storey version of a UK Travelodge - was fine for the brief stopover we had before flying home from the airport. Clean, but dark rooms. Not much to do aroun but very handy for the airport

We had no complaints about staying at Sleep Inn Hotel in Dar. The staff were very friendly and it seemed that the staff and rooms were a level above the sister hotel in Kariakoo, where we also stayed. We were very satisfied. Location is decent enough.
