This was my first time staying at this particular hotel in Dar. I had a great experience staying here. It is centrally located and has very friendly and professional staff. I arrived at the hotel one day after my initial booking due to flight cancelation. When I emailed Expedia and the hotel about my delay, the hotel management was very responsive and very flexible with my arrival date changes. When I finally arrived at the hotel, checking in was very easy. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Eunice and Gertrude. My room was clean and well kept, thanks to Mwasi and all the room services staff. The breakfast was great and the restaurant team members were very very helpful and professional. During my stay, I had some challenges connecting my work computer on free wifi provided at the hotel, and this was mainly due to my work computer security settings and not necessarily the hotel wifi issue. I eventually had to get a personal router from the local internet providers. Thanks to Manager Raaj, who provided a car and driver to take me around to the internet provider store to get what I needed for my work computer to work. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to stay closer to everything in the city.

Receptionists were friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Eunice and Gertrude. Great Customer Service and Care. Bell boys, drivers were very helpful. Special thanks to Joshua who always helps with my Shopping with smiles. He escorted me to exchange my money.....which was just about 5mins walk. Martha had smiles on her face while cleaning up my room. Manager Raaj kept in touch even before my arrival, and introduced himself. He made sure I lacked nothing. Manager and Receptionists call to find out about my well-being. Driver Barak was exceptional. Always prompt, safe, knows everywhere in Dar. Friendly, level-headed, and very helpful, offering advice. He's the equivalence of a "human Yellow Pages", lol!! Location is less than 7mins walk from Restaurants (I recommend Chef Pride), about 1hr to the Airport (due to a bit of traffic). A team of fantastic people who showed teamwork and friendliness towards each other, a bunch of naturally nice people!! Thank you all, and God Bless!!

The staff were tremendously kind and helpful from the moment we stepped out of our vehicle. The complementary breakfasts were unusual and delicious, with different Indian and East African dishes every morning. The rooms are spacious and clean with excellent air conditioning. The location is interesting with so much activity surrounding it. I would highly recommend this nplace!
