I wish I could have spent more nights at this wonderful hotel. I loved the atmosphere, the dining on the rooftop, and the very comfortable beds. Missed having a shower in our room, but the hand held worked well. Other rooms do have a shower, so if you need one, ask Gordon if he has a room with one. The...

I can't speak highly enough of Alexander's, its proprietor Gordon, and his excellent staff. I have been to Dar Es Salaam several times on business and usually stayed at the "name" hotels out of familiarity more than anything. A consultant friend recommended Alexander's, and I am sorry I've waited so long to discover it. It is a small (17 room)...

Enjoyed several nights at Alexander's during a recent business trip to Dar es Salaam. Alexander's reminds me of lovely Riads in Morocco. As others have mentioned, great setting and service, delicious food, lovely pool! I would have stayed longer, but needed quick access to business amenities and taxis. Would love to return on vacation!

I spent only one night at Alexander's, but it's a high quality hotel with close personal management by the owner, who clearly has an eye for detail and makes sure his guests are well looked after. He waited up for my late arrival from the airport to personally show me the room, which was enormous and nicely furnished. Nice to...

Alexander's is a boutique hotel tucked away in a residential area on the Masasani Peninsula of Dar es Salaam. Gordan Alexander and his staff give excellent service to make every guest feel at home. They have an excellent restaurant, which is considered to be one of the best in Dar es Salaam. the Jumbo Prawns are wonderful, but if all...

Stayed at Alexander's for a week while in Dar on business. The hotel is very nice: well-priced, small, clean, quiet, secure, hassle free, efficiently appointed and the food is quite good. Good place for single women travelers. Seems to be frequented by NGO in int'l association types, but quite comfortable and efficient. Dealing with Gordon Alexander by email to confirm...

Clean and warm pool, nice location, nice bar/restaurant, clean and spacious rooms. The manager and staff were helpful and went above and beyond. We stayed here twice. No cocktails in bar - sniff. Hardly a big deal though.

We stayed here at the end of a safari with a family of four. We enjoyed the beautiful rooms, excellent food and general sense of welcome. We are finicky sleepers and enjoyed the peace and quiet afforded in the quiet corner of otherwise hectic Dar. We had saved up our souvenir shopping and were pleased to find the recommendations by...

I loved everything about this hotel. Gordon is extremely helpful and accommodating. The breakfast is excellent and served in a lovely room. The rooftop bar and restaurant has a great menu and wonderful wine and bar list. Our room was comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped.

We spent roughly three weeks at Alexander's and nothing was too difficult for Gordon or his staff to make our stay more comfortable and pleasant, from arranging taxis from the airport with five minutes notice when arrival times were incorrect, to being amiable and friendly hosts to chat to in the evenings at the bar in the roof-top restaurant.
