Stayed here only one night,chosen purely for location as we were visiting an organisation in the same street and wanted to avoid the infamous Dar traffic . A single room is priced at a ridiculous $90...for which you don't even get a bar of soap! The bathrooms are new, and apart from some bizarre black specks on the pillows were...

The hotel is very nice and remarkably quiet. It's clean, the rooms are small but fine (with fan, fridge and a.c.). The bar area is a good place to relax and chat. Staff are friendly. The only drawback is the location - although it isn't far from town, it's in a pretty dense housing area (with poor roads). This means...

One night, business, single. + nice and friendly staff + spacious room + price + nice flora around. - no luxury - beds a bit uncomfortable All in all, good for African standards but average on TA (since TA does not allow for scoring of good)

The construction of tall apartment buildings around the little haven has not taken its homely feel. I especially liked its lush green little gardens, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms and really good food! Guest typically eat together around the same table hence it is a great avenue also to meet people from all over the world. If you are...

Hidden from the hustle and bustle, it was a joy to arrive and relax in this little green oasis. Super helpful staff and interesting people to meet at dinner - interesting to hear how different people ended up visiting Tanzania. I would certainly stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip at the end of July. The hotel has comfortable, clean rooms. Beds have foam mattresses and mosquito nets. The bathrooms have showers with hot water although the water pressure is low and not much more than a trickle at times. There are a safe, a refrigerator, a ceiling fan and an...

Stayed there for nearly a week and can just say the hotel was spotless. The prices can be discussed as they are a little high considering the overall standard - but if want to preserving this hotel I am happy to pay for it as well. In dar you have a plethora of alternatives regarding accomodation - from simple hostels...

The room rates are just okay compared to other hotels in Dar,This is a nice basic hotel; clean rooms, with safe, fridge, AC, fan, free wifi and a computer you can use in the reception area for a fee. They do a nice breakfast of eggs, fresh homemade bread, cheese, pancakes, good yoghurt, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice.
