Nothing special but good for Tanzania. Average cleaning but working air co. The area however is noisy with a bar downstairs working until late. The surroundings of the hotel are focused on tourists and only tourists but it is a very safe area.

I spent a week at Hotel Slipway and loved every minute of it. Staying in the new part of the hotel, I had a sea-facing room, which allowed me to wake up to spectacular views of the ocean every morning and watch the sun set from my balcony every evening. The room was pristine and stylish and had everything I...

Slipway hotel is a good option and a great location in Dar, inside the Slipway Mall. The rooms are ok, they are clean but definitely in need of a little upgrade and it's more on a generic cheap hotel room look. What makes this place great is the pool area, which is really nice and the breakfast, it's a fantastic...

It felt like i was half way between the city and the ocean but one look out from my room, I was only at the ocean. Stunning views all day. Waking up in the morning and looking out to see, i didn't want to go back to sleep, just wanted to stand there, looking, dreaming.

The hotel its self is very nice, clean and comfortable. Older rooms above the market are small and comfortable, can be noisy at the weekend and too light for some in the morning. New executive rooms are OK, but still have some teething problems (electrics didn't work, smell of paint at the time). In addition, the hotel is in the...
