Check-in was hassle free and the staff very friendly and welcoming.
The room was pretty cozy with a double bed, fan, air conditioning, TV, tea and coffee facilities and a safe. The bathroom was fairly large. Both room and bathroom were clean. The water was very hot with loads of pressure which was nice.
We didn't have dinner or breakfast so can not comment on those.
There was wifi available in the room and in the lobby.
The hotel can arrange for airport transfer. We asked for a taxi to get to the Ubongo bus station at 5am and were disappointed that the bell boy negotiated $30 which is a tourist rip off price. After renegotiating we reduced this to 30000 Tsh or $18 which is still too much. A local person would pay a maximum of 25000 Tsh for the same journey.
If you are in Dar for a night or two we would certainly recommend staying here as its good value.
