This was my first time traveling in Tanzania (in Africa, for that matter) and I felt so lucky to have landed at Triniti. It's a gem of a place, an urban oasis set inside a beautiful garden, with a bar, a restaurant and rooms installed in little bungalows out back. It felt like a home away front home, complete with a little tabby kitten who would curl up on my lap while I worked in the garden area.
Just to be clear, if you're looking for a 5* resort or standard hotel-chain comfort, this isn't the place for you. The rooms are quite small and lack some of the amenities of mid-range western hotels (like a hair dryer or a kettle - though you can ask to borrow some at reception). That said, they're spotless and bright, painted white with touches of color and local artwork. The beds are comfortable and the A/Cs work well.
But the best thing about Triniti is the people. From Erica the owner/manager to Caroline the breakfast chef (who will cook you eggs to order and makes the most delicious donuts from scratch), everyone is extremely warm, welcoming and helpful. They let me leave a extra bag with them while I visited other parts of the country, and arranged for it to be delivered to me on my last day. Guests are usually professionals here on business, and you're bound to meet interesting people around the communal breakfast table. And if you're feeling especially social, hang out at Triniti on Friday night, when the bar turns into the best party in Dar es Salaam (live band and DJ set). The rooms will be noisy during the Friday events (especially the single rooms out front, Victoria and Tulsi), so either bring ear plugs or be ready to party the night away!
