Nice room and comfort ability, the hotel is located not very far from the Sinza Kijiweni road. Excellent service from reception to your room, security wise is ok. Room service and breakfast is also standard. Welcome all mramba_a@yahoo.co.uk

The hotel is a bit far from the city centre given Dar's traffic situation at times. The breakfast was great and all inclusive. Rooms were clean but the bath was small and AC not working in the room I slept in. Apart from that, it worked just fine for the price we got.

The hotel is very modern and large with remarkable architectural elements. Although the hotel is located in Sinza, it is well connected from the main street for easy accessibility. At the reception, I didn’t have to wait for long. The rooms were large and spacious. The bathrooms were well equipped with all the necessary amenities. The price/quality ratio is excellent.... More
