Stayed there for nearly a week and can just say the hotel was spotless. The prices can be discussed as they are a little high considering the overall standard - but if want to preserving this hotel I am happy to pay for it as well. In dar you have a plethora of alternatives regarding accomodation - from simple hostels to super-lux high-end resorts, From 20US per night to 250US -and thats a real difference, isnt it! This hotel is in the range of around 100US, which many of the areas's hotels are, but there are something special about this place. It pose a special charm and somehting close to cosyness. I was told, it since its opening has been looked upon as an oasis in busy Dar, and sure it still is, even though Dar has become as busy as you are having construction sites on two sides of the hotel compound! Thats a real pity indeed because somewhere along the road it takes away some ot the hotel's core since the sound which appears from time to time from the construction. And really, i did not care much either about it - i was to busy Working. overall, the hotel has everything a hotel should and i strongly recomend it to as many persons as possible. Its a pearl to preserv!!
