Overall this is my new favorite hotel in Dar es Salaam! Large, clean, comfortable rooms, good WiFi even in the rooms,which isn’t always the case, very good food with a lot of creative western style options, welcome cocktails at the bar, and friendly service. Espresso maker with free caffe latte at breakfast was a bonus. The pool and gym are both large, but are in the adjoining fitness club building so the hours are restricted. My The one thing I found disappointing was that the pool water is very warm (so not that refreshing) and not the cleanest.
The hotel is in a lovely, safe neighborhood outside of downtown Dar.
