“Safe haven in chaotic Dar”

First of all: It was our first time in Africa, so the cultural shock on the nightly drive from the airport to the hotel (you can arrange a pick up service at the airport for the usual taxi fare) was quite big for us Europeans. But once we arrived at Alemap, everything changed. The hotel has its own security guard and is surrounded by high walls, so everything a frightened tourist needs. The rooms are nice, clean, have air conditioning, mosquito nets and of course a bathroom.
When you get hungry, you can use the kitchen in the house, or go to a nearby restaurant and enjoy nice tanzanian food (always remeber to negotiate the price before ordering ;) ). In case you have any questions (and when you are the first time in Tanzania, you will have a lot) you can ask the owner, Nancy. Yes, Nancy I could fill pages of how nice she is, but I guess you have to experience it for yourself... She is an extraordinary friendly person , tries to help you in case you have any issues and is a very interesting person to talk to. So don't miss the opportunity to talk her!

When you are looking for an affordable, nice room, in a quiet area of Dar es Salaam the best choice is Alemap House. Next time I will be in Dar es Salaam I will definitely stay here again.

Nancy: Thanks for everything, it was an amazing trip and you (and your help) were a big part for its success. It was a real pleasure meeting you, maybe till the next time!

“Perfect Escape”

Alemap house is an ideal place to get away from hot, dusty Dar. With only a few rooms, large living space including comfortable sofas, dining area, a kitchen, a tv and DVD player, wifi and outside space it is a place that feels like him. Nancy is a fabulous hostess who is always on hand for questions and can help with anything from transport, advice and a little Swahili!! It is a little way from central Dar which is great for peace and quiet but means taxi rides are needed to and from.

“Unbelievable”

Alemap House is the hotel we’ll remember for the rest of our lives! We spent one night here in January 2014 – just passing through Dar es Salam on our way to Zanzibar. The room was spacious and comfortable, with mosquito nets, fans, and everything you need to get a good rest. The staff was very nice, friendly and professional. I guess we felt so much at home there that… we just left a pile of cash (USD) saved for the rest of our African trip just sitting on the bed in our room… It was only on Zanzibar when we noticed that the money was missing; we called Alemap and they said – yes, we’ve found it, come and pick it up. And they returned it. This is the story of one travelling couple’s unbelievable stupidity and one hotel’s unbelievable dignity. Definitely recommend staying there)
