Perfect for business purposes. My room was spacious enough and has a large bathroom with shower and bath. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the food served in the hotel is good. Internet connectivity is also fine. Slight drawback might be that the bed in my room was rather narrow.

Pleasant, relaxed option if you need to be in Dar. Courteous and good service, and the courtyard itself is a special touch considering the bussle just outside the walls. Not to far from the coast either if the spirit moves you. Some might consider if a bit enclosed and small, but I had no problem. Very nice rooms.

This is a nice art nouveau-styled hotel with standard amenities. The staff was courteous and professional. Rooms are cozy with reasonably comfortable beds. They overdo it a bit with the Tiffany lamps but that's a nice problem to have. The inner courtyard is lovely. Biggest strength is the restaurant with a great selection of dishes, including Indian and Tanzanian fares,...

Very pleasant hotel in a classic 1949s courtyard building. Nice atmosphere and facilities. Breakfast buffet and restaurant menu varied and good quality. Central Dar es Salaam location not too far from airport. Although not far from the ocean, doesn't seem like a coastal location because rooms basically face into the courtyard. Good attention to detail in service offered.

Picturesque and comfortable hotel close to town, food always good, room comfortable and serviced well. We used a small meeting room for a week to do training and it was all as expected. The catering there was also very generous. Well run, comfortable hotel. What else can I say.
