Traveled to Dodoma for a couple of days on a business trip and booked into New Dodoma Hotel, very clean rooms, everything worked, very friendly staff . Plenty of options on meals and delicious too. Spent 2 peaceful nights here.

The place is big, clean and safe for travellers. However, the rooms are pretty average and is just ok to spend one night on a business trip. Toilet was clean and tidy. Food for strict vegetarians would be disappointing.Hospitality of staff was also average. Wifi worked well through out the tenure.

Well , a grand place in its time, but is too big to manage without significant investment. Rooms could be better, pillows hard, one morning no hot water, but then it was fine. Service is friendly and from my personal point of view, was generally efficient. Breakfast was more than adequate with fresh juices, freshly cooked eggs, and a range...

Reviewed 10 February 2016

We stayed here for one night on a long road trip. All I can really say is that it was adequate. The building is fairly imposing & it's not far to the centre of Dodoma on foot, but the hotel has definitely seen better days (at least, I hope it has, I'd hate to think it's always been this scruffy)....

First I lived the town. The people are friendly. The same culture is in the hotel. The hotel ambience is excellent. The workersecond are polite. The hotel is within walking distance of churches, shops and it is just across from the railway station.. There is a bureau de change within the hotel, a steam bath and massage parlor.

Considered as one of "the"hotels in Dodoma, it was OK. the rooms are dated and would do with an upgrade of the entire facility. Service was nothing to write home about. The breakfast is average with not much to offer. The wifi is slow and frustrating especially for a business traveller.

Well...not a great sign when you can't wait to leave. I suppose the room is "clean" if you don't count the mosquitoes squished dead on the wall, dust and old/tired carpet and furniture. I didn't have hot water. I didn't feel safe in my room. And I was told by several people to leave NO valuables at all in the...
