Good hotel with Great Restaurant Food

The hotel was in relatively good locality. Little bit far from Airport considering local traffic and ongoing Bridge construction going on in Dar Es Salaam. Restaurant food was one of the big plus. Roof top Bar & Restaurant was quite good, helps to relax after hectic work day. Local Taxis are always available outside the hotel.

Comfortable and professionally managed

This is a very good hotel in the city centre. The wifi worked well and the restaurant served good food (and beer). The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well. The biggest plus as far as I was concerned was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff and management, which was outstanding. This will be my hotel of choice on my return to Dar es Salaam.

Old Colonial Type hotel

The staff were all charming and friendly. Restaurant service one night was so slow I left - 45 minute wait for a curry!! There was a function upstairs, and I don't think they thought anyone else would be eating. Breakfast (included) was OK, much Indian food, but omlets made to order.

Two star hotel

The condition of the room is really bad. Paint is peeling. Washroom tiles are dirty and may have MOLD. Water doesn't drain during shower. It is really bad. Only supplied on bath towel and one hand towel. No napkins. Neighborhood does not suite the location of this hotel.
