Our stay was very satisfactory, we got a great room for a great price. King suite room with a great Harbour view and a balcony to enjoy the view. I would highly recommend this Hotel, as it has general store (in the ground floor lobby), restaurants and other features that are useful.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel before going on safari. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre. Rooms are comfortable, very clean and have all amenities you can desire. Food is excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful. If we would have to come up with one less positive remark, it would be the fact that...

We choose a deluxe room and were delighted. A bit expensive but the room was clean, spacious and had a balcony. We got a seaview that was beautiful and they also arranged for us to check in in the morning. This was a really nice treat after a long flight. The breakfast was outstanding and they also had a very...

Fab views of Dar Es salaam harbour and the city. Restaurant and bar have a certain charm and warmth and service is friendly and sincere. Reasonably priced stays in the centre with fab views but perhaps not the safest of locations.

We booked this hotel at Booking.com. Located near the harbour area and only short walking to Zanzibar Ferry terminal. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was fine.

Reasonably convenient for business in Dar. Rooms are spacious and practical have a small kitchenette. They are clean & comfortable enough although the floors and showers are a bit greasy and could do with a deep clean. Not a place that one would choose to stay at for non-business travel. Have to work your way through shops, salons and offices...

We spent one night here before going on to Zanzibar. The staff are friendly, the food is good. It's in a perfect location as it is walking distance from the ferry port, we even had assistance walking to the port with our luggage.

I always use to stay in this hotel whenever i visit Dar but this time i feel services were not that good. Staff was not friendly always with a sad face and slow services. Front office staff was also very dull.
