    The only positive is proximity to the airport, but I would definitely not stay here again. The neighbourhood is very noisy (train, motor vehicles and loud music). The room was small and the bedding very old (but clean enough).

    For close to airport over night this works do not be put off by the neighbourhood it is clean and basic - expensive for what you get bit worth it to save the hassle of dealing Dar traffic. Tv channels mainly local and poor reception
