Awesome coxy hotel where everything runs smooth and precise. The rooms are spacious and clean, staff super friendly and the food in the ground floor restaurant is very delicious. If you are looking for a hotel with a decent gym, look no further, this is the best in DAR. I have been here more than once, and will definitely come...

Keyless entry. The room was very spacious; so also the bathroom. Oldish hotel but well appointed. Flat screen TV and WiFi internet. The latter at times moved at the speed of light. Nine TV channels some somewhat snowy. Air conditioning sufficient and not too noisy. Bed was OK but cushions a bit lumpy and would like to see replacements. Lighting...

Nothing spectacular in the surrounding, so a long stay wouldn't be interesting. But the hotel is good, with the normal cliche rooms that you find everywhere in the world in business hotels, but neat and clean (though the card keys often refused to work). Nice News Cafe downstairs. Wim

Friendly service from the moment I arrived. Everything in the room worked. A/C was cold and comfortable. Bathroom amenities were top quality. Bathrooms and room was super clean. Downstairs the News Cafe was converted to breakfast room each morning. Fantastic Food at News Cafe and cocktails are delicious. Hard to find anything to complain about. Bed was very comfortable and...

If you want access to town or to businesses on airport road this place is ideal. It is not luxury but it has all you need for business and for staying more than a few days as I was, I loved the variety (and value) in the restaurants. I got tired very quickly if the menu at the other hotel...

Clean, safe, warm hearted and service minded at competitive prices, that's all I can hope for in buisy business metropolis Dar Es Salaam. Gym is to my taste and the pool complements my workout schedule and format. Breakfast for winners and a decent sports bar are good for me and affordable again.

Stayed at this property for one night over the weekend. Firstly, the check in process was quick and efficient however, the person working behind the desk was not enthusiastic or welcoming; they seemed very bored. When we entered our room (202), the first issue was the smell of dampness and humidity. I do understand this is an issue in Dar...

The hotel has a cold, cool ambiance. Asked for a quiet room and got one on the top floor. However, think the roof is the local zoo since lots of noisy bird and/or monkey activity taking place. The windows don't have proper curtains but Luxaflex blinds so it gets light very early in the morning. Toilet seat was loose, after...
