Reviewed 31 December 2016

The hotel is ideally situated in The Slipway, several shops and market stalls, a bank and grocery store all on the premises . There are also coffee shops, and restaurants right there. The boat for Bongoyo Island leaves from just beyond the restaurant.

Yes it is in a nice part of Dar es Salaam, within walking to a few eateries and the waterfront. But it is as far from the airport as you can get and Dar traffic can be horrendous. And the bed is rock hard, the towels were not stocked, and the room was stuffy.

We would stay two nights if the room they gave us was nice. Unfortunately they gave as a room with a view to a construction site with a lot of noise. The common areas of the hotel are nice and the surroundings interesting. Great nail shop at the hotel shopping center.

Perfect location by the water with local flavours and everything you would want under one roof from great food, coffee and chocolates to shopping for hot weather essentials. All put together perfectly with a sense of the aesthetics which the Italians possess and perform with such ease.
