I tried to stay here overnight to pickup a business associate on an early morning flight. I wanted to make sure he was greeted appropriately as we would be driving straight to Morogoro from the airport. I had prepaid my stay and when I arrived the receptionist could find no record of my booking., finally I was told that I...

The hotel is very close to the airport which is great for an overnight stay. The room was very clean but the bathroom was smelly and didn't function properly. You definitely want to wear flip flops in the bathroom. There was air con which was well appreciated because there can be a bit of noise from outside. Definitely do not...

The Transit Motel Airport in Dar Es Salaam was very neat and clean except for the bathroom which is in a horrible condition. We stayed in room 6 and the handle to the washing-bin was broken and could in fact give you a terrible cut if you did not take care and the shower was dirty and did not function...

This is a very small, clean motel to rest while you are in transit, or layover. A great plus is the air conditioning. They have a shutte to pick us up for airport and take us back with sufficient time for our next flight. We were surprised how good the food was, but get prepared for a long wait thoug.....the...

The name says it all! If you want to crash for a night, in between flights, this motel serves the purpose. Nothing more, nothing less. Simple room and bed. Simple breakfast. And as others as mentioned, they have taxi for $5 to airport from the motel. ( and from airport they will charge $10 ). Will Recommend for one night...

We stayed here as we had a very early flight. It is a very simple but clean hotel. They have an airport shuttle that will pick up/ drop off at any time ($5 per way). The hotel is literally across from the airport, but it is better to take the shuttle as the road you have to cross is crazy...

This hotel is good for easy access to the airport. It's drastically over priced, the most expensive in Africa we paid. It is clean they they provide towels, we had some hot water issues which is disappointing for the price. No aircon remote so it was too cold and we had to turn it off and on. The area is...

A dump. No hot water, no WiFi, one TV channel, No remote control for aircon so it's set on 16 degrees. Shocking breakfast. While also located in a run-down, noisy neighbourhood, it was conveniently close to the airport. Very disappointed USD40 spent.
