Reviewed 29 April 2013

The location of the hotel is very good and was convenient for my daily trips to Kinondoni Road during the four day stay on the fourth floor (Room # 447). My room was a pool facing one, but I guess the sea facing ones on the higher floors are preferable. The staff was efficient and smilingly helpful always. The room...

Efficient and friendly with comfortable rooms. Very useful central location near the harbour and ferry departure points Closely situated to many government offices and major business complexes. Ask for upper floors, 7 and above or away from the street side as street noise can be loud till late at night. Tai restaurant on the top floor has excellent food and...

I am quite often in Dar-es-Sallam for busines and have tried various hotels. The New Africa Hotel was one of the hotels recommended to me by a colleague. The hotel is located opposite a church, near to the sea and the ferry station to Zanzibar. Breakfast has a good selection and the coffee is OK. I ordered an airport pick-up...

We stayed here on two separate occasions, either side of a trip to Zanzibar. We found all of the staff to be very cheerful and helpful. It is a hotel towards the luxury end of the scale, yet the prices aren't unreasonable. The rooms are excellent, the breakfast buffet superb and the pool is pretty good. Excellent location - a...

I ended up at this hotel because Hyatt hotel was fully booked for the conference I attended. Staff was very friendly, specially at the restaurant.

I have visited this hotel a few times and it always makes me feel like I am returning home. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.

The only friendly faces seemed to be the doormen... thanks guys. Reception was pretty average and so is the room (if you ignore the dripping air conditioner). View to the harbor is ok if you look past the dirty window. Pity about the overstatement of "services" on the web and elsewhere. A hair-drier (claimed to be in the room) takes...

For those that like their breakfast cooked the English way; Bandari Restaurant offers a good 'fry up'. There is also a good selection of fresh fruit and juices, oatmeal porridge, croissants and baked items. Breakfast is a leisurely affair that goes on until 11am. Walk-in guests can enjoy it for 20,000 shillings. My only wish is that they would serve...
