I enjoyed my stay and there was nothing I can possibly complain about. It was simply a wonderful stay. I hope to stay at the same hotel next time around and looking forward to the available discounts or promotions.

This was my second visit to the Southern Sun and the stand out impression was how friendly the staff are. Right from the minute I arrived to when I left (very early in the morning ) they are unflappable and cheerful. The hotel itself is a little worn in places but has a nice bar and restaurant with outside seating area overlooking a pool and gardens. It’s located downtown in the embassy area so is quiet at night and handy for businesses

The Southern Sun, Dar Es Salaam is great for when you are staying in town. The rooms are quiet, safe and clean. The food is great and the internet is fast. I recommend it for a business stay and would also stay for holiday.

Very comfortable room, efficient and helpful reception and excellent breakfast and dinner
Room did not have a very good view but hotel is very central for exploring the city. Staff very helpful and the hotel has a pool and gym

Excellent Service from the staff. Wifi excellent. Food good. Need more variety for vegetarians.
Pool Service was good and allowed to use facility even though he was closing up.
Maybe some staff need to take some English classes, they struggle to understand.
