Got off the plane and booked a Safari with a guy from the airport. He suggested this hotel, assumed that he got a kick back from us staying there. Room price was 55USD, the room was a matchbox and the shower was horrible. Not worth the money especially considering the location. The hotel is located in the city and after the sun goes down it was advised not to leave the hotel, this would be the same everywhere you go in Dar. It is not on a main street and the road in front of the hotel was under construction. It looked like the hotel had a face lift but definately the guts were changed. Saw other travellers staying there. Had internet that was free. Bed was rock hard.
