Basic but much better than expected

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Clean room, double bed, air con and private bathroom. Friendly staff and safe environment. Be sure to take small change in dollars ($5's & $10's) as you will NOT get change. Agree a price on taxi before you get in and ensure you have the right money (again no change will be given)

Okay for a budget one-night motel stopover

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: The food was great - it was cooked fresh from ordering, but I wasn't in any hurry.
Cons: The toilet and the TV needed repairing.
Location: I didn't go out. I am not sure I would have liked to wander around in the evening.
I stayed there one night only. I flew into Dar from Tanga, and was departing Tanzania early the following day. The positives - the food in the restaurant was great, the location reasonably close to the airport, taxi service to airport available. The negatives - the bog didn't flush, the TV had no sound, the surrounding area looks rough.

Worst hotel expirence ever

Posted Jul 6, 2014
After getting off a long flight we checked in only to be charged for a transfer we that they lead us to believe was complimentary. Then went to the small room with no hot water to try and sleep for the next flight we had very early next day. Did not sleep at all consistent noise the whole night. Worst! Don't stay here!

As Advertised- clean, cheap, convenient location

Posted Jun 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a very good option for travelers who need to catch an early flight from Dar. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Internet worked fine. Surrounding area seems a bit dodgy at night but I felt comfortable getting some fruit and water from the market.

Great location near the airport

Posted May 27, 2014
The hotel is a good for the price. Right by the airport. My wife arrived at the airport at 3am, so was able to walk to pick her up and take a cheap quick taxi ride back to the hotel and sleep for a few hours before catching our flight in the morning. Hotel is part of a small local community.

CONVENIENT HOTEL CLOSE TO AIRPORT.

Posted Apr 26, 2014
Pros: 1. The convenient location. 2. The attentive and caring staff. 3. The cleanliness 4. Quiet location.
Cons: The small sink made it inconvenient shaving. Also did not get any hot water during my stay. Maybe, a couple of benches under the trees?
Location: Next to the airport. Did not see anything interesting nearby.
Hotel was a 3 minute ride from the airport. Room was basic but served my needs. A/c, tv worked good. The staff were extremely friendly and answered all my questions.

Close to Airport and Reasonably-priced

Posted Mar 22, 2014
Pros: I liked the location, room cleanliness and facility.
Cons: Customer service with a welcoming smile from all hotel staff.
Location: Location is excellent. But, the surrounding neighbourhood is not pleasant and the road to the hotel is very rough and extremely difficult.
This hotel gives you good value for money. It is within walking distance from the airport and facilities are quite adequate. It will be advisable for the hotel staff to assist visitors from abroad with some basic information like sight-seeing attractions, important telephone numbers, shopping, etc.

Cheap place to shower prior to flight

Posted Feb 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had about a 4 hour layover prior to a 24 hour trip back to Los Angeles after a safari. Perfect place to shower and rest for a couple of hours in an air conditioned room prior to going back to the airport. They were there to pick us up and then dropped us off again for small charge. It is in a bad neighborhood but is gated off wi a guard and we felt safe. Definitely provides a needed service.

Convenient Stay For In Between Flights

Posted Feb 14, 2014
We chose to stay a couple of hours at Transit Motel Airport since our flight from Dar to Istanbul was at 04.30 in the morning. The location of the hotel is right across from Dar es Salaam airport (literally cross the main road from the airport, 2 minutes of driving), so it is really convenient if you want to sleep several hours before weird flight times. The room is small and very basic - a bed, desk, chair and closet. There's TV, fan and AC. The bathroom is basic and old (the shower pipes were rusty), but all is clean - room, bathroom, sheets, towels etc. There's a restaurant. Although it took them more than 1 hour to prepare a soup and a wrap, the food was quite OK. There's free WIFI which worked well. The staff was helpful, arranged our transfer to the airport at 2.30 in the morning for 5 USD. The hotel delivered our expectations in general - cheap, convenient, close to airport and good for getting a few hours of sleep and shower.
