I stayed in the Nikko Towers hotel for 3 nights whilst in Dar on business. It is perfectly located in the CBD and close to the Zanzibar ferry. I had meetings all over town and could walk easily instead of getting stuck in the monotonous and notorious Dar traffic. The rooms were excellent, one night we were without water but that was due to a municipal water issue not the hotel itself. The air conditioning is freezing and you don't seem to be able to change the settings so I slept with the ceiling fan on and that was enough. The TV reception is terrible and the Wifi comes and goes but if you are patient you can download emails in certain places around the hotel. There is no pool, a small gym and a very strange bar on the top floor (empty every night I stayed). The restaurant is the jewel in the crown. The food is well prepared, tasty and there is plenty of it. I would recommend anything from the curry menu. Overall, a decent hotel for a short stay in the middle of town.
