Clean, well-equipped rooms with nice views over the harbour (the rather good Thai restaurant at the top of the hotel has a particularly nice view). Location's as central as it gets. The pool is small and part-shaded by surrounding buildings, but it serves its purpose. Breakfasts were pretty good. Staff were a bit inconsistent on the front desk: some were...

To be honest, this is a hotel that would register as 3 out 10 for me. The only goods things are the view from my room, food being ordered through room service and the location the rest is pretty ordinary. The rooms are okay sized, the beddings leave a lot to be desired and the service in general is non-existent....

Good service. GREAT Thai restaurant upstairs. Good rooms. Well situated relative to the harbour and fairly good location relative to airport (remember that Dar's traffic is hectic, so this is a relative to others statement)

Stayed there during June 2012 for about two weeks. Reasonably priced and has decent infrastructure viz. Well equipped business centre and meeting rooms. Comfortable rooms and most of the staff is Indian so felt pretty much at home.

Was in Dar-es Salaam during early December 2013 on a business trip, along with two of my colleagues. Our associates in Dar es Salaam had booked me in at the New Africa Hotel since it was just a 3 minute walk to their offices, in the heart of the CBD. I had stayed here previously in 2011, and had even...

I was able to get a decent price through TripAdvisor's links to booking agents. I normally stay in a budget guest house in Dar but was looking for something a bit nicer this time. Normally "a bit nicer" can break the bank in Dar es Salaam. The hotel was clean, well air-conditioned (important in Dar), with comfortable bedding and good...

I stayed three nights partly for old times' sake, as this hotel was built in the 1960s, when I lived and worked in DSM as a young man. It was a favourite haunt of top politicians and others. It deteriorated later of course, but has been pretty well refurbished not long ago, and the location is still the best in...

A very nice boutique art-deco hotel. I understand they have recently gone thru an extensive renovation program which makes this hotel a great value for money bargain in downtown Dar es Salaam. Nice Bar serving great cocktails !
