Spent two nights at the hotel recently and it was good. The staff are exceptionally friendly and very helpful. It is right in the CBD so if you need to be in Dar for Business it is very central. Nice views overlooking the harbour. The rooms are a bit “old” but very comfortable. Excellent Thai restaurant upstairs that has magnificent...

The hotel pick up and drop off was on time. The general ambience is good. However their brochure promised a view of either the pool or the ocean but I had neither and was facing the flags of different countries that are above the reception area. Their breakfast was ok. The location is ideal as it is near a number...

Dear Tripadvisor member, Thank you for posting a review of your stay with us. I am glad that you liked the hotel overall. Apologies on the room allocation. We have a set of corner rooms on every floor that face the street on on side and have an oblique view of the ocean on the other. Its unfortunate that we...

Very average rooms, but do the trick. Nothing to rave about at all. Service was OK, again pretty average. Hotel is very expensive for what you get. Around USD 200 per night. This hotel has an excellent Thai restaurant with very authentic food.

I've been travelling to Dar since 2005. I've stayed at the Hyatt (when it was the Kempinski), Protea Courtyar, Protea Oyster Bay, Holiday Inn, Millennium (before it was the Peacock). After a nine night stay at the New Africa it is now my preferred hotel in Dar. Here is why: 1. Nice bright rooms - at least on the Harbour...

The New Africa is an excellent business hotel in the city centre. I stayed in one of their refurbished rooms facing the ocean side. Lovely view of the port. Quite a feeling to have such a view throughout the stay. The staff was kind and welcoming. Check in was smooth if not spectacular. The doorman and the porters were friendly...

Great location and great potential but sorely in need of refurbishment and professional management. I just spent one night there so have a snapshot view of the hotel. Corner rooms have a great view over the port. It is attached to a casino. Budget alternative to the 'big boys' - the Kilimanjaro hotel and the Serena.

We stayed at the New Africa after two weeks on safari. We wanted to be central and have view of the harbour and were willing to sacrifice some quality. Turned out we did n't need to. The hotel is first rate with modern appealing public areas, equally modern rooms and excellent buffets in the restaurant. The harbour view rooms allow...

In the heart of Dar just off the ocean, walking distance to business meetings we had. Both restaurants (Thai & Indian) had good food. View of ocean from Sawasdee on 9th floor worthwhile. Seaside rooms can be noisy but are livable. Rooms clean and most thins worked fine except.... WiFi intermittent and slow, outages were annoying and unpredictable.
