We hadn’t planned to stay in Dar-es-salaam during our trip but after a bit of a hiccup on our way home we had to stay for two nights in May 2012. The hotel is cheap and cheerful in a good central location close to a number of shops and restaurants. The staff were very friendly on our arrival and the room whilst basic was spotlessly clean with a small balcony. Considering the price of the room, we were very happy with it and the air conditioning and hot showers were a bonus. There is a constantly supply of taxis outside the hotel that will take you to the ferry port for Zanzibar or the airport and given that our flights weren’t until 23:00 the hotel staff were very happy to look after our bags during the day and allow us to hang about in the reception whilst we waited.
I would definitely recommend it to travellers on a budget!
