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.

Stayed a few nights in between safari's as a stop over. Great location, with the small shops, markets close by for souvenirs, and generally a great vibe with families around.
