We were in dar es salaam for attending Muharram with syedna mufaddal Saifuddin (tus) but all hotels were packed and prices were very high but we found this hotel for only $40 per night and I can say I got the value for money...rooms were good as well as breakfast.... I have a very pleasant stay here .....

We were directed to this hotel after a flight miss. Honestly the only positive was the travel time from the airport. The hotel is terrible, with only one elevator working, a floor under retrofit work, and a 'bridge" to connect to the right corridor between the two side of the hotel. Room was just ok, water was cold to take...

I booked this hotel for a while back when I was visiting Dar and had the opportunity. I do like the fact that it is right off Morogoro Rd and in a convenient place close to the regional bus-stand. and a few minutes drive to the airport (depending on time of day).

The church nearby starts very early even on weekdays and is very loud. Wireless Internet is also not working in my room. Elevators on one side were out of order , you have to climb the stairs for 11 to 13th floors.

Staff at the hotel and more particularly at the restaurant were being very dishonest. Only expensive dishes were available and if you want to eat something cheaper you would still have to pay the price of a more expensive dish. They were also being very dishonest with the conversion rate which was higher that the current official one. Hotel located...
