4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Double Tree did their best to make my stay as comfortable as possible and our conference run smoothly. The banquet manager was very helpful, and the caretaker of our conference room - China Mood in the afternoons, Ali was such a pleasure to work with, paid so much attention to detail in our set up. Looking forward to continued collaboration with Double Tree

I've spent a total of 1 1/2 weeks here over two different stays and always enjoyed it. I was always comfortable there. The food is good but the service could be faster. The hotel is close to the Slip Way shopping area where we walked to shop and eat. The security made us feel safe. The lady in the gift shop sells stamps and will mail your post cards for you. When I return to Dar I'll stay here again.

I enjoyed the stay at the Double Tree. The time spent next to the swimming pool was one of the best in a long time. The reception staff was extremely professional. I had a great time and will definately be back. Thank you to all staff.

Ideal hotel for a business trip. Good service. Good breakfast and lunch buffet. Excellent rooms. Security can be improved, Guards are a bit sloppy but for African standards it's maybe the best you can get. The hotel's security manager helped, on his initiative, in a very professional manner when we needed his service. Next time this will be our hotel of choice again.

Very nice hotel with excellent, helpful staff. They were polite and professional yet still personable with me and my friends, taking the time to back-and-forth about some language differences and chat about some local aspects. Two employees of particular note were Khadija (front desk) and Aysha Salim (lounge service), they were great, friendly and most helpful!!

Room Tip: Try and get a water-side view, the sunsets are quite scenic!

This hotel has everything you could ask for. Great rooms, nice pools, nice exercise room and a great, friendly staff. I didn't venture off the hotel grounds as I was told it wasn't safe, especially for westerners. Really didn't need to though, the hotel has pretty much all you need.

Stayed here on a work trip. Good location close to where colleagues live. The room was clean and well equipped, staff were friendly but I didn't get to enjoy the breakfast as it didn't start till after I had to leave for work (0630) which in Dar where everyone starts work at 0700 was too late.
