Stayed for one night en route to Zanzibar. Exactly what we wanted, and excellent Indian food. Room quite small but immaculate. Slight leak in bathroom but did not detract for loveliness of hotel. Had dinner in the courtyard which was beautifully lit with a lovely (small) pool. Helped us get a cheaper taxi (should only be $20 to and from airport), we paid $35 coming straight out into the taxi stands.

Decided to book in spite of some poor reviews. However, I found to my surprise that the hotel was in fact excellent in all aspects - we even booked back in for new year. The area is not so bad as some said in fact it is very well located for most things.
The quality of cooking was excellent and well above most hotels of this level.

The staff was courteous and professional from start to finish. I arrived late, around midnight, after my bus hit a semi truck on the way to Dar from Arusha. The staff were completely on top of their game and my reservation had been held. They even helped me deal with the cab driver who followed me into the hotel to get change so that he could get an extra dollar out of me. They sent me up to my room and dealt with him and delivered my change to my room. They also have a flat rate cab service available to the airport for $25 or 39,000 schillings which is a reasonable price from the downtown location

Just stayed Last Week at the Hotel Sapphire - Dar Es Salaam (Mtendeni), The Location is great in the city centre with easy access around Dar; we really enjoyed the stay and were looked after by all the staff (especially the Manager Nityanand Upadhyay). The rooms are large, clean with LED TV, Air Con, fridge, microwave, small electric hob and free WIFI that worked everytime!, even the shower was more powerful than my power shower at home. The restaurant food was great with local, Indian and western taste catered for.
We travelled in and out of Dar Es Salaam to Mtwara, Zanzibar and Arusha but our main luggage stayed in the Hotel with no problems even when we left at 4.30am the staff were always helpful, courteous and remembered us after everytime we returned (it made us feel we had come home)
Thank you to all the Staff and Nityanand Upadhyay for making our stay so wonderful :))

Good location, nice staff,
Restaurant was open 24hours/ day which was a nice surprise when we arrived on a late plane.
Breakfast was included and was good.
I could do without the Celine Dion music that always seemed to be playing somewhere

Very good hotel close to the beach although it's not the best beach ever. The rooms and service is quite good and close to quite nice restaurants/bars checkout for Trinity 5 minutes walking distance and the Slipway Mall has an excellent restaurant/bar called Wavefront.
The gym has very good equipment and serves excellent healthy snacks and drinks.

We only stayed one night, but wish we'd booked for two nights. The taxi was waiting for us when we arrived at the airport and was also booked for the next day. Small bottle of water in the room, which was just what we needed after our journey.
