Dear Esteemed Client, Thanks a lot for giving us an opportunity to host you. Indeed we really appreciate your time taken to provide us with a feedback via this platform. I take note of the fact that you found our rooms above average, including the other services vis a vis breakfast, Air condition and hot water. We take great honor in meeting our clients' expectations. In terms of proximity to the airport, we are only 8km away from the Julius Nyerere International Airport. Indeed I also note that you were not impressed with the Jacuzzi. My sincere apologies to that end. I have however overseen its maintenance and i can assure you of its perfect condition currently. We do have variety of rooms at Greenlight Hotel all defined more or less by the bathroom structure. There are rooms with only executive showers enclosed in an ultra modern shower cabins, those with Jacuzzi and hand showers, those with Sauna, Jacuzzi and shower. We do look forward to hosting you yet again. Please do have a great time. Warm Regards, Leonard Chege, General Manager.

Dear esteemed client, It is normally quite a humbling experience for us, whenever we are able to meet a client's expectations in our property. Indeed it was a pleasure hosting you and many thanks also for finding the time to review our Hotel. I have already shared your lovely feedback with my team as well, and we are all delighted. We do look forward to your return trip and I am sure you will be able to find our already completed open air lounge which shall prominently feature in our adjacent multi-purpose hall just about to be opened to the public in mid-November 2018. The ultra modern lounge will be at the top floor overseeing the awesome Dar city view and the new property will be absolutely soundproof in order not to interfere with the serenity of our rooming clients. Take care till then. With Warmest regards, Leonard K. Chege, General manager.

Dear Honorable client, Many thanks for taking your time to review our property. Indeed we do also thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay. On behalf of Greenlight Hotel, please accept our sincere apologies for the unpleasant experience that you endured during your last stay with us. I however would like to address the issues that you have raised in your review in the following order: Airport transfer: Greenlight Hotel is located nearest to the airport more than any other high-end hotel in Dar es salaam city. We are talking about an approximately 10 minutes drive or less. This is usually the case as we are located in an area whereby a journey to and fro the airport does not suffer traffic snarl-ups. We normally encourage our esteemed clients to send us email about their flight details, exact arrival date and time. This will give us an opportunity to arrange our airport shuttle for a seamless transfer. The fact that you did not send us the aforementioned details, served to delay the process. Lift maintenance: Indeed we sincerely apologize for the hiccups that our esteemed clients experienced in our elevator. We have taken measures to ensure that there will be no repeat experience of the same. Thus i am glad to inform you that a new elevator system is now up and running and thus i wish to assure our clients of a very smooth experience in our lift system. Wifi: I also would like to apologize about the erratic wifi experience during your stay. Indeed we had a short interruption of the wifi but which was later rectified by our provider. We pride ourselves to offering our clients free super-fast and reliable wifi in the rooms and all other outlets in our property. I have already shared your candid review with my team, and i do take this opportunity to assure you that the mishaps that you encountered largely on the operations and technical aspect are now a thing of the past. I highly encourage you to make a repeat visit in our Hotel and i will personally be glad to meet you as a firm assurance that you can trust my assurance as highlighted above. Please get in touch with us on manager@greenlighthotel.com or info@greenlighthotel.com and we will be glad to accord you a more satisfactory experience in our property. Warm Regards, Leonard Chege, General Manager. Cell: +255 656 569 111.
