The staff at the hotel are very friendly and responsive. I tried their Chicken noodle dish for dinner and it was pretty good. Would only mention that the breakfast was a bit of a disappointment in terms of variety, seemed more skewed towards the vegetarians. The view of the harbour in the dining area is pretty nice, Wi-fi works great,...

I have stayed many a times in this hotel. They have an nice restaurant with a very nice view of the ferry terminal. The rooms are very spacious and neat and tidy. The hotel is like a maze with rooms every where and very easy to get lost if u are in a hurry. The only thing I have experienced...

We spent a night in Dar es Salaam right after camping during the safari and staying in this hotel was truly a good time! Sleeping in a good bed, nice and large room after the tent felt very good!!!

Dar Es Salam is the central Eastern City in Tanzania which houses a cacophony of diverse African cultures from across Africa. The good and the bad.

We went here because we were 'in transit'. Decent gym and pool, nice service, good breakfast (included). Spacious rooms... nothing to complain about. Except for the boxed breakfast we asked for since we had to leave at 4:30am... only bread and pastries. No fruit, no yoghurt... we were disappointed with that but overall a nice stay.
