Reviewed 19 May 2013

i stayed here for a conference and overall the judgement is positive. Room rather basic but clean and efficient. The hotel itself is quite impersonal and you would not have memories of it, but neither you will have negative ones that not always is a given with hotels. The location is good close to the sea and the ferries.

I stayed at New Africa for 3 weeks between March and April this year for while I was in Dar Es Salaam for business.

I did not experience or...

The New Africa Hotel is perfect. Affordable luxury; bang in the middle of city center Dar es Salaam. The hotel’s location was the main reason I opted to stay here on a business visit, however the service and the warmth of the team made me feel at home. All one really needs is a nice clean room with a scrumptious...

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...

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.
