We were very disappointed as we were expecting a decent hotel. The hallways are dark, the carpets smelly and damp, and the whole place reeks of citronella candles. Yes, I know, the mosquitos... but isn't there a better alternative?

The rooms are alright but a sewage smell emanates from the bathrooms.

A posiitve? The breakfast is extensive and includes dinner items from the buffet dinner the night before. Prepare for beef curry, puris, wintermelon pickle, and other delights...for breakfast.

Room tip: Choose a different hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback. I will work on this immediately.

WE are in the process of renovating the entire hotel and in early 2018, we would like to present you with a world class product.

As for the breakfast food, i am really surprised to hear that it was not up to the mark. We pride ourselves in the food that we serve. It is absolutely fresh and we do not serve any left over food. I will still with my team to make sure that items are not repeated, however popular they might be as this can give a feeling of repetition.

I hope you will give us one more chance to be of service to you.

Kind Regards,
Siddharth

A nice hotel. Very good Wifi (they claim that it is the best in town). Has a swimming pool though the gym is way too small. The breakfast is good . What I like most is the friendliness of the staff. The lady at the Customer Relations has some nice recommendations for restaurants and the lady at the breakfast recognized me from a previous visit. Nothing like a little bit of flattery. The Asian restaurant on the top floor has superb views though it could do with an open air terrace. The bar is nice. It has a bright red decor and an interesting street view. But on Friday evening boy does it come live!

I use this hotel every time I stay in Dar. Multiple choices of bars and restaurants and also a casino attached.
The rooms are spacious and well laid out.
Well located right in the heart of the city.
Rooms are quiet but A/C a little noisy . A/C is very effective .

Room tip: Sea views are available. Sometimes that the church in front can be lively on weekend mornings as early as 7am . I prefer pool view.

Feels like a Marriott or Sheraton due to renovations. Great location. Super clean bathroom. Great breakfast buffet. I heard from staff the place will soon become a Sheraton four points. Only negative is the rooms are a bit small.
