Nice Hotel in the heart of Msasani, Dar es Salaam

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Spacious rooms and excellent bedding...
Cons: Food is not that good...but it's the same in most hotels...There are plenty of nearby restaurants for all tastes!
Location: There are plenty of restaurants nearby, must try Shooters, Zuane and Cape Town Fish Market! Slipway is walking distance, nice vibe, food and shopping
Excellent Value for Money! Spacious rooms, excellent beds, great location...

Best Dar hotel I've stayed in!

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Food was pretty good, staff try their best to provide good service, and the location is great!
Cons: For my last 2 days, there was an awful sewer smell coming into the room, maybe a broken pipe? Such things should be checked regularly.
Location: Slipway is nearby, perhaps the best feature of this location
My stay was uneventful - it was a nice stay. I was there on business and to see family and friends

Disappointing start, supposed to be stress free

Posted Aug 6, 2014
We were finishing a safari and climb up Kilimanjaro so wanted to stay somewhere a bit more upscale so we could live in the lap of luxury for the final days of our stay in Tanzania. We organized a taxi transfer with the hotel almost 2 weeks before our stay to pick us up at 9:30 pm so we didn't have to worry about finding the hotel at night after 12 hours of travel before that. Upon our arrival at the airport, no one was there to pick us up. Eventually a guy came to pick up 3 other travellers on a different flight from Double Tree so he was able to call the hotel to find out what happened. They simply didn't send anyone. Later on, another gentleman arrived and also didn't have a taxi waiting for him. The taxi driver who was helping us before ended up calling one of his friends to then pick us all up. Had this guy not been there we'd have been there for goodness knows how long. We later found out from the gentleman we had to share a taxi with, that this happens all the time, because the Hilton uses an outside company for their taxi transfers. This was later confirmed by the hotel. In our minds this is completely unacceptable service for Hilton. There is no accountability for leaving guests stranded, late at night, for over an hour after their arrival time. Although the hotel did not charge us for our returning transfer to the airport, they did try to charge us for the initial one that no one showed up for!!! We had to argue with management to have this changed.

OK

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Nice large rooms, reasonably clean (a few stains/chips on the bathroom tiles). Staff were polite and friendly but not particularly proactive (ie. Left us sitting in the lobby for an hour at check in then put us in the wrong room, no one explained the facilities or breakfast arrangement, difficult to get fresh pool towels etc). Decent buffet breakfast, recommend getting in early before they run out of fresh coconuts.

The road access due to the recent rains was terrible! Having lived in Dar es Salaam some 40 years ago and the area where the hotel is was just a sisal estate and the yacht club it was quite a shock to see it all so built up.
