Dar es Salaam Dilemna

Kili or Kempinski? rates are within $40USD or one another. Anyone stayed at both? Which would you recomend.

I'll be there for 3 weeks in December (2009)

Thanks

I'm guessing most people who come on here, only stay in Dar hotels one night while they wait for their flight home.

Paul - are you aware all hotels are reviewed under 'Hotels in Dar es Salaam', on the left?

The Kilimanjaro Kempinski? Are you sure you are talking about two different hotels here?

You're right.

I meant Kili or Movenpick.

Both Movenpick and Kempinski are well rated international hotels. If for 1/nt, either one,or the one that fits your budget. Neither are inexpensive.

You can try the Paradise Express Hotel. In August, they had a special at $76 B&B. Its 9kms from the airport.

Actually, it's for 14 nights, so even subtle differences could matter.

BTW, thanks to all for your replies to date....

The comparison is indefinite

40USD With Kempiski is not normal

just to be clear: I said they were within $40 of each other. i.e. the rates I am getting are movenpick at $180 and the kili at $220
