    I think the idea behind the Safari inn was to build it in one of the worst neighborhood in Dar. Anyway, the place has a badadministration (we've had problems with our rooms and with the reception) and also offers one of the worst breakfast in...More

    Rooms are small and not too clean, but just about manageable. The breakfast was also disappointing and very minimal. Rooms have mosquito nets but some have large holes in so they're rather useless. Whilst the hotel itself is generally quite clean, you have to walk...More

    I am sorry to differ with the guest. We are very religious about cleanliness and are quick to correct any deficiencies. Our hotel is very old but we work very hard to make sure guests dont feel that way. Re: Alley access to our front...More
