There are some nice hotels in Dar like the Kempinsky, which is where I normally stay. This time, I stayed at the Holiday Inn. Big mistake. For starters, the rooms smell mildewy. I hate that smell. Next, there's an ashtray in the room and you can tell by the smell in the room that it's been used. I really hate that smell. I could live with all that (but I'd never return), but what really got me is that the AC was broken. It blows air but it never got below probably 80 F in the room, in spite of repeated calls to the front desk and assurances that engineering would look into it. The rooms belong in a cheap motel, not a respectable chain like a Holiday Inn.
On the plus side, the buffet dinner was pretty good. But if you're looking for a comfortable stay, look elsewhere.
