I dropped in when I came back from Stone Town. The accommodation is cheap and the Hotel is located in the center. So good for exploring Dar. It's not the Hilton ofcourse and sometimes the noise from the benabored Hotel Air-condition generator is pretty annoying. All in all.. It's good to stay a couple of days and the staff is...

Very cosy and nice rooms, you can cool yourself from the outside hotiness of the city (it is extreme). The staff is okey, central location close to the bus station and the sea. It is safe and there is luggage storage so you can leave your backpacks for sony time in case u need.

It is good hotel just for waiting a fly or a transfer. Outside is not so good neighbourhood, it is not recomendable got outside before at night (also in all Dar es Salaam). The price is good. for stay just for little days is confortable but not the best. The staff is very kind.

It offers nothing very special, but does have clean, cheap rooms including breakfast and wifi that is actually working (at the time of writing ;)) and friendly staff that communicates in English easily. Also there is a restaurant just around the corner (chef's pride) where you can have food all day, including a quick, good dinner for late arrivals that...

Stayed here for one night on transit between Zanzibar and Arusha. Close to ferry terminal. Staff were friendly and helped us organise a bus to arusha at the bus terminal around the corner, as well as escorting us there at 4.45am which was nice, which meant we didn't need to go to the dodgy major bus terminal. Air Con couldn't...

Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure having you. Apologies for the A/C issue. Each A/C is controlled with in-room remote and temperature can be adjusted by the guest. Perhaps the guest was not aware. We will make sure to inform our guests at checkin. Thank you for taking the time to write a...

Offer simple en suite single and double rooms at a cheap price. The location is great. The value for the price is good. My room was a little stuffy and the toilet was damp but clean. I am not sure if my room was a smoking room. If it was, I was not informed of it. A note to improve:...

Many thanks for the review. All our rooms are non smoking; however, guests break the rules on occasion, and sanitizing the room becomes quite a challenge. We are more than happy to relocate the guests in such situations. Regarding the breakfast, please note that, given our mixed clientele, balancing the tastes of local versus international guests becomes quite a challenge,...

I think the idea behind the Safari inn was to build it in one of the worst neighborhood in Dar. Anyway, the place has a badadministration (we've had problems with our rooms and with the reception) and also offers one of the worst breakfast in Tanzania. The rooms are clean and the price is low, which compensate for the brutal...

It's unfortunate that the guests, whose group occupied 2 rooms, are selective in their facts. In an attempt to delay their 11am checkout time, they called the front desk just prior to claim they were "undecided" about staying 1 more night. Given booking requests from other arrivals for the same rooms, this created a challenge for the staff and guests...

Visited here for 3 nights recently with friends having stayed here before. A very well managed budget hotel in a central location for Kariakoo and the ferry. Rooms are basic but clean and have AC or Fan and hot water. Wifi only works at reception and there are no TVs in rooms. The area is busy but safe and is...

Cheap hotel, you get what you pay for. Main redeeming feature is proximity to Zanzibar ferry terminal. Stayed for 1 night before going to Zanzibar and did not want to stay longer. Basic lodgings, although I will admit clean. The air con did work so that was a bonus. Customer service severely lacking. Prices on hostelworld are USD but at...
