Where to stay in Dar convenient to Kariakoo market

I fly from Zan to Dar on morning of 29 Dec 18 and fly out of DAR midday on 30th Dec. Can anyone recommend a decent hotel near the market? I don't need fancy. I need clean and safe.

My market interest is mostly fabrics, textiles and local clothes. If there is any other place I should look? Would appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance

Hello Leah,

Regarding the hotel you should stay at HONG KONG HOTEL, Dar Es Salaam. the

For the fabrics, textiles and local clothes please ask for a specific street called KITUMBINI at KARIAKOO.

No problem at all, we’ll also be staying there in September. Taxi might be a better choice to go to the hotel than walking, and should not be too expensive either. Everybody keeps telling us that Dar is not the safest city to roam around alone, even during the day. Good luck with the trip!

Maybe I can ask the hotel to send someone to pick me up. I travel solo and hate the idea of getting into a vehicle with an unknown person. I'd be interested in how your trip goes and any other advice you have to share.

Safe travels

Now I'm wondering if I should try to stay an extra day in Dar!

Thanks for the Hong Kong hotel info and the market area info too. I'm always grateful to TA people with knowledge.

Hello Leah,

Your are always welcome!

And if you plan to stay a day more in Dar and wish to make a safari please check with Bohobe Travel and Tours Agency for a one day safari to Mikumi or visit the island of Mbudya for the beach. They are very good and affordable!
