Excellent Choice!

Overall this is my new favorite hotel in Dar es Salaam! Large, clean, comfortable rooms, good WiFi even in the rooms,which isn’t always the case, very good food with a lot of creative western style options, welcome cocktails at the bar, and friendly service. Espresso maker with free caffe latte at breakfast was a bonus. The pool and gym are both large, but are in the adjoining fitness club building so the hours are restricted. My The one thing I found disappointing was that the pool water is very warm (so not that refreshing) and not the cleanest. The hotel is in a lovely, safe neighborhood outside of downtown Dar.

Gym in the hotel is incredible. It’s a full service gym open to the public as well. Spa service was excellent. Breakfast is not great. Rooms are fine but there was a lot of construction noise all day long.
