(Assante' is THANK YOU.. )
New Africa hotel, a centrally located hotel in Dar Es Salaam city, Tanzania, is a beautiful hotel property.
Currently it has some renovations going on, but if you really are going to be out of the hotel for most of the time, you need not bother about the noise and other stuff happening around you.
Staff is very cheerful and helpful, but of course there is an odd one out here and there that may displease you totally, don't be shied away because of them, overall, they are a great bunch here.
Food on the first floor restaurant is generally and mostly Indian, but of course part African and part continental too.
Breakfast buffet is lavish with superb staff to wait on you.
Don't miss the harbour view, port view from the 9th floor restaurant, its amazing on a clear night with a full moon, mesmerizing. Drinking beer in the evening or even enjoying one of the best THAI FOOD I have had in DAR, on the 9th floor.
The Thai Chef takes it very very , i mean VERY OFFENSIVELY if you were to go up to the Thai restaurant and ask for CHINESE FOOD. OMG, watch your head. Better still, go to the Thai restaurant and enjoy the Thai food, she is a darling of a chef, fantastic Thai food.
Pool, small but really nice. Well kept.
Small Gym, keeps you in shape.
Around you, banks, shopping, catamaran service to Zanzibar and so much more.
A very safe area and nice hotel to be in.
AIRPORT TO AND FRO.. Watch out. Be ready for the nasty traffic snarls at times running into at least 2 hours to get to the airport or to the hotel. But otherwise, a 40 minute drive for 13 km should not set you in a grumpy mood, enjoy the architecture and drive anyway.
Do not forget to take the BIGGER FERRY just across to an island which has some wonderful beach hotels, this huge ferry plies vehicles and people across too. Its a wonderful day trip.
Rooms for couples or with double bed face the sea and a church, if you are prepared to be awoken by...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. It was heartening to note that your enjoyed your stay overall. Thank you for appreciating the buffet breakfast as well as the food at the Thai restaurant. You would be delighted to know that we now have a chinese chef too. I am sure that he would be adept in handling your specific meal requests. Your kind words on the team members and their service have been noted. I shall share the same with them and sure that they will be super chuffed. Glad that you found the hotel conveniently located.
Looking forward to welcoming you back to Dar.
