I stayed here for two nights while on a business trip to Dar. The hotel is nice at a great location, super clean and friendly, safe. I would give it the best reviews, except for that it's next to a night club and at night the music doesn't stop until late late night. Maybe it was just the weekend, but...

The restaurant and rooms are very clean with simple furnishings and plenty of space. The Raha Wifi hotspot was fast. Breakfast was tasty, filling, and included in...

We arrived late after a long trip from Morogoro excited about our half term break. Arrived at Pumzika to be told there may or may not be rooms. We waited awhile and then were shown to our room. We were put at the back where I would say "housekeeping" would stay. We were charged 50usd which was not worth it...
