Hotel is nice. Food was very good. Our room had the A/C right at the foot of the bed and the low speed was still like a jet engine. We finally rearranged the beds so we were not as disturbed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating (they tried to help with the A/C). We were in a room with...

For the price we paid, I was a little disappointed. The courtyard is nice but I couldn't enjoy it for long. One night I was out, typing on my iPad and they shut all the lights off! I guess no one saw me. Our room was tiny and stuffy with no window facing outside. The breakfast buffet was pretty good,...

Stayed on night at this fine establishment whilst on business in Dar April 2017. The price was reasonable - especially considering the rather high hotel prices in this country. Paid usd 120 incl breakfast which was well worth it. Rooms are rather basic and don't expect a luxury hotel but it had a nice homy feel to it. Polite and...
