A very convenient place in a very central place in Dar. The staff was quite friendly and understanding as I had requested an early check in a late check out due to my flight times. This was given at no extra charge. Uber is now in Dar and we made good use of it at very cheap rates. A single...

We stayed in a large family room, which also had a kitchenette outside that we could use. The manager was very friendly and gave us a great rate for that location, where many hotels are very expensive. The location is such that one can walk to anywhere in the old town, and it is also conveniently has the market close...

Decent place to stay at decent prices. I tried other hotels also in the city, but found this place to have the best in class amenities. They do your laundry for free, and even sent my breakfast in my room. The only problem is there was no elevator.

We stayed in a room perfectly big, with living room, kitchen, bathroom, everything, only that you should ask for cooking utensils and the fridge is too cold that it freezes everything you don't want to. The staff is ok, not so much smile but when you initiate a smile...

Sophia House is centrally located in Da es Salaam, within walking distance of restaurants and the Zanzibar ferry. We stayed at Sophia House in June 2012 and were warmly welcomed by the manager Tawfiq and his staff. Our room was nice and clean and very reasonably priced at $45 per night. This included air-conditioning and a ceiling fan, a mini...

Sophia house is first of all great value. Rooms have good A/C, internet access, cable tv, hot water, rooms are quite spacious and there is a free laundry service. Stayed there many times because I have not found any equal in that price range. Breakfast is above average, fruits, eggs, sausage, toast, etc
