My stay at this hotel was the best day ever. The staff was very accommodating and friendly and accessible during my entire stay. Thank you everyone for making my trip enjoyable. They were also very helpful with taxis and the appropriate rate to pay for the taxi drivers. Special thanks for help coordinating rides to and from the airport.

The hotel was well located. Easy access to surrounding restaurants. Large rooms. Excellent internet, Very nice lobby and bar area; Managers not that helpful. Front desk- be careful they arrange transport and do not tell you the price, then you get a heavy bill like $30 for a 7km trip. Be careful about the transport they arrange.

This location is not so good if your commuting into the city due to traffic congestion, it does not have any outside recreational areas (Backs on to a fuel station). Biggest let down for me is that it only has an Indian restaurant which provides only Indian food, nice now and again if you like that but not everyday, only...

Spacious rooms with good staff. Anytime you visit Dar es Saalam, this is a nice place to stay. The room is specious enough to accommodate a whole family and the environment quite enough for a good stay experience.

Good hotel in a good location for those on business travel. With Dar being a very hot town, it would be a good addition to have a swimming pool at the hotel. But there are clear space constraints. At arrival, nothing outstanding at reception area but the rooms are very spacious, very well kept & beautiful. A total pleasant surprise...

Had a wonderful experience at this hotel as the rooms are a reasonable price, yet huge, comfortable, and equipped with everything you need. One note is that the Indian food provided is to die for.
