The Hotel offers a comprehensive business hotel service. For Dar es Salaam, the price is appropriate. Highlight is the very good and reasonable priced restaurant, serving traditional, Indian, and Italian food. Rooms are clean, Interior seems a bit outdated, but reasonably well maintained.

...all said. Good location but overpriced. Not service or costumer oriented. No shuttle to airport provided. They should not rely on their name only but make more efforts to make their service better.
