But sometimes you need to have some patience. Room Large rooms, good bed, airco, large bathroom some of them with a shower others with bath and shower. Everything was clean and when you...

I went to Dar essalaam just for 1 night and lived in Double tree by hilton. It's the very good hotel connected to the beach and has a spot that you can relax and take a photo with. Good breakfast with fresh fruits especially unlimited coconut !! You can walk to Slipway within 5 mins. But something else I prefer...

I'm here for almost three weeks for work. The hotel is nicely situated along the sea side with a small shopping complex right next door including exchange, supermarket and bank. The hotel is quite impressive and is spread across two buildings. The ruins are very large with lots of space to move around. The bed is just right however the...

room was large and well equipped but faced the car park and not the sea. Noisy with rubbish truck at 1100pm, talking by security guards and drivers. Breakfast was repetitive and small selection. Staff were helpful.

The reception process, room and environment is very good and clean. However, I found the quality of food preparation not very appetizing. I like the sea side, ambience, good security and responsive hotel employees. The check out time was flexible and convenient for our departure time. Thank you.

Having made a reservation for December it reminded me that I had clean forgot to do a review from my last stay in May. I had been pre-allocated a suite and arrived at the hotel early - about 9am.

As another user posted, this is a solid choice in my book. Rooms are large, aircon works very well, depending on which room you obtain, the views can be spectacular (or awful, again just depends - I've had both). Security is good for Tanzania. A coffee lounge in the main lobby is good to meet local contacts. The pool is...
