The hotel is a good for the price. Right by the airport. My wife arrived at the airport at 3am, so was able to walk to pick her up and take a cheap quick taxi ride back to the hotel and sleep for a few hours before catching our flight in the morning. Hotel is part of a small local community.
spend a night here after a safari before an early flight the next day. It was by far the best accommodation we had while in Africa. Very good value. The cafe in the lobby has free, fast, wireless that was perfect for catching up on life after a month on the road.
I booked F10 Livingstone Hotel because I needed a place to stay for a night after flying into Dar and before continuing on to Iringa the next day. This hotel met my expectations-- much nicer than the transit hotels I've stayed in near the airport, but still a quick drive from the airport (after traffic jam hours). WiFi in the lobby, and cable TV, air conditioning and hot water in the bedroom. A simple breakfast was provided as well. Sure, it wasn't in the nicest area of the city, but those areas come with a higher price for similar accommodation.
The staff was courteous and professional from start to finish. I arrived late, around midnight, after my bus hit a semi truck on the way to Dar from Arusha. The staff were completely on top of their game and my reservation had been held. They even helped me deal with the cab driver who followed me into the hotel to get change so that he could get an extra dollar out of me. They sent me up to my room and dealt with him and delivered my change to my room. They also have a flat rate cab service available to the airport for $25 or 39,000 schillings which is a reasonable price from the downtown location

The hotel was in good condition and clean. Breakfast was not as good as most hotels in this price range, but ok. Food pretty good. Rooms clean and great showers! The staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked in my room - which is an unusual benefit.
Good location, nice staff,
Restaurant was open 24hours/ day which was a nice surprise when we arrived on a late plane.
Breakfast was included and was good.
I could do without the Celine Dion music that always seemed to be playing somewhere
Just stayed Last Week at the Hotel Sapphire - Dar Es Salaam (Mtendeni), The Location is great in the city centre with easy access around Dar; we really enjoyed the stay and were looked after by all the staff (especially the Manager Nityanand Upadhyay). The rooms are large, clean with LED TV, Air Con, fridge, microwave, small electric hob and free WIFI that worked everytime!, even the shower was more powerful than my power shower at home. The restaurant food was great with local, Indian and western taste catered for.
We travelled in and out of Dar Es Salaam to Mtwara, Zanzibar and Arusha but our main luggage stayed in the Hotel with no problems even when we left at 4.30am the staff were always helpful, courteous and remembered us after everytime we returned (it made us feel we had come home)
Thank you to all the Staff and Nityanand Upadhyay for making our stay so wonderful :))
Decided to book in spite of some poor reviews. However, I found to my surprise that the hotel was in fact excellent in all aspects - we even booked back in for new year. The area is not so bad as some said in fact it is very well located for most things.
The quality of cooking was excellent and well above most hotels of this level.
