During my two week holiday I stayed in Tanzanite Executive Suites on 25-27 Oct., 31 Oct-1 Nov. 3 Nov.-5 Nov. and 7-8 Nov. and I have nothing to complain about. Whole staff made me feel very welcome.
Air condition & a fan kept the room nice and cool. There was good shower with strong water pressure and plenty of hot water (which is not always the case in Tanzania), telly with dozens of channels (HBO! Indian! Chinese! etc.) to choose from.
I liked the fact that there were two bottles of water waiting (which can be put into a fridge - no minibar though as this is a Muslim hotel). There's also a microwave oven in every room if you happen to have a slice of pizza. :)
Room was otherwise very quiet but the call for morning prayer (when the sun rises) is not avoidable - but that's how it was also in the hotel where I stayed in the island of Zanzibar.
Breakfast was okay (especially nice juices), even some variety from day to day. I'd have appreciated more local fruits than individually packed ready-made muffins but just outside the hotel was a guy selling wonderfully ripe mangoes. (Try it with chili powder if you dare.) Some mornings someone in the kitchen kindly made me Belgian waffles while I sipped my tea.
Taxis to and from airport ($20 one way) were in time and when I needed a ride to Zanzibar ferry I was taken there for free. (Well, it's not far but walking with wheeled luggage is not so easy when the local roads are like they are.)
If I ever end up to Dar again I will certainly book a room in Tanzanite Executive Suites.
