This was a recommendation from my boss, who's been staying here a long time, and suggested I give it a go instead of doing the standard anonymous corporate thing. He wasn't wrong: They found me a room in spite of my arrival at 3am a day earlier than my reservation, the service was smiling and personal, the rooms are spacious... More

I am back again in Tanzania after a long visit in Montreal involving the tropical disease center. I vowed that once I got over my assorted tropical maladies I would find a place I could really feel at home in and that ,I really trusted. Alexander's is the place. The staff and owner are a delight.

Had dinner at the Alexander's Hotel restaurant at the terrace. The staff were friendly and informed us that we have to make a booking next time. Had a lovely fish with well cooked veggies. The ambiance of the place is so welcoming.

After a long flight we really enjoyed the hospitality of Alexander Hotel. This is a hidden gem in DAR, which I can recommend for a start or end of a safari. The restaurant is top notch. We really enjoyed our time there and will chose this hotel next time again.

I stayed at Alexander's Hotel (on the recommendation of a friend) for 9 days during a recent working visit to Tanzania and from now on this will always be my hotel of choice in Dar. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated; the food is excellent (with the kitchen staff prepared to accommodate special dietary needs); the upstairs dining/bar... More

The food is excellent and the rooms are spacious and pleasant. Lovely pool area and fantastic upstairs bar and restaurant where you can work in peace or sip a G&T after a day of running around. What makes this place special is Gordon's attention to detail and a personal touch that you simply can't buy. At times the power can... More

A perfect place to start and finish our awesome trip to Tanzania. I can't think of many hoteliers who would be up at 5am to welcome you on arrival and then say goodbye at 1 am on the day you leave.

Situated in the elegant Masaki peninsula and 45 minutes from the airport. It's a popular place with many guests. Large room, but a bit too essential. If you like to have a lunch nearby, you have to walk a long distance and get to the Slipway. With regard to my dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant, I think that... More

I was impressed with the big, airy rooms, quite neighbourhood and good quality food (and wine) at Alexanders. However what really won my over was Gordon's personal assistance after an unpleasant incident on (what was meant to be) my last afternoon in Dar. Regrettably I was robbed outside another large establishment in the area. I immediately sought assistance from their... More
