The Hotel Slipway is located in a nice and convenient setting with some restaurants, shops and a supermarket in the same premisises. Other good restaurants are very near. The standard rooms are very basic, with nice sea view if you are on the right side...however some maintenance might be needed. My window was lacking a piece of glass and my...

The view is breathtaking. Lots of activities like a boat ride to Bongoyo island for about $20. Nice waterfront restaurant. The rooms though are very very basic. The ceiling fan leaked water!!! Seriously!!! The short shower curtain guarantee a wet bathroom floor every time. But again...the views are great. I have not stayed at the new extended wing of the...

The hotel is not very pricy, but offers a lot. The Slipway hotel is used by a lot of Western tourists and the service is on an accordingly high level. The rooms are clean and spacious enough, the view in the executive rooms is great. The morning buffet is small, but you can order food from a card, too. There...

Came here on my first trip to Dar es Salaam and I loved it. I liked the view of the water from where the outdoor restaurant is. I would advise going to eat when the tide is high so there aren't any flies or odd smells. But back to the food, it was amazing and very different from anything I've...

This was a beautiful restaurant on the harbor. The patio area was shaded and offered plenty of seating for both large and small groups. Food was delicious, we got a coconut curry a Caesar salad and some pizza. Food was a little slow coming out but worth the wait. In a charming shopping area with many stores.

We spent just one night in an executive room with an ocean-view at Slipway. The room was brand new and incredibly modern, clean, cool and very comfortable — a wonderful surprise for East Africa! My only complaint about the room is that the mattress was quite hard but I think that hard mattresses are the standard across East Africa. Because...

The Slipway was an ideal place to be away from the frenetic, busy Dar es Salaam. The room was adequate and had a view of the water, but the bathroom was rather small. The staff were all very good and professional and we enjoyed our meals at the restaurant looking out to sea. Wifi was good in our room. The...

Beautiful setting, close to stores, bank and city center. Very convenient for business! Well suited to bring your family while having to work. The rooms are clean, well appointed, quiet and comfortable. The choice of restaurants is great and the food is fantastic. Prices are high when comparing with other similar hotels.
