“Excellent hotel in the center of Dar”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

I stayed one night at 'Tanzanite executive suites' with my parents before our flight the next day and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

The hotel is great! I still can't believe how much we paid for what we got: deluxe room with two rooms (one king size bed, one two singles), two bathrooms, AC, van, a kitchen (including a small fridge and a microwave), a living room, a balcony, Internet (excellent connection) and three tv (one in each room!). Book it online it will be slightly cheaper ;-)

I don't think you can find better for this price (besides the hotel is situated in town, 5min from the ferry so you can walk everywhere) which includes an amazing breakfast (coffee machine, different breads, juices, fruits, omelets, cereals etc.),
The staff was very nice and helpful, organized ferry/airport transfers for us and recommended restaurants around.

You have a few restrictions that you should be aware of: no alcohol, no guests allow in the hotel, the jacuzzi/sauna and gym can be used but women and men have a different schedule for it (women from 9am to 5pm and men before and after that). It can be a bit surprising but it didn't bother us that much as we were staying only one night.

I would highly recommend this hotel :-)

The hotel rooms and facilities are high quality, and breakfast was great. However, the air conditioning is sometimes way too strong and the whole hotel still seems to be under construction. The elevators did not work very well, and AC units in one of the rooms our group used needed to be repaired. The hotel also picked us up from the airport, but had us waiting around in the parking lot for over half an hour because they didn't bring enough car space to fit our whole group and luggage. Also, the rooms are gigantic, just as a heads up.

It was of the best budget hotels we stayed in Africa.

The staff were really friendly and they offer you fresh tasty mango on arrival

Rooms and bathroom were very spacious and you get your own large balcony.

The rooms were very clean and there is security at the entrance.


I would recommend this hotel

clean hotel, helpful staff, good brakfast, good in room entertainmaent on TV channels, free wifi, we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, very spacious , good beds, fridge/microwave present in lounge.
Nearby average golf course, dry - in gymkhana, (taxi- 10,000TZS return), two holes tee off by beach- good view, do try fresh coconut juice .
Only 10 minute walk to Azam ferries station for booking ferry (2 hr) to Zanzibar, 40 US$ for VIP seats ( recommended), 35$ for business class, need passport when booking and need it in Zanzibar. we stayed there for 1 day, spend a few hours on Prison Island (10 US$ each for small boat)- good snorkeling and amazing turtles on the island. spent a few hours around stone town- see old houses, museum, bazaars, slave dungeons,etc, house of Freddy Mercury birthplace.
Nearby restaurants, we found a KFC also- 40,000 TZS by taxi,
hassle free shopping in small bazaar style shops in 'Safeway' part of Dar, ask taxi driver, for small souvenirs.
Not recommnneded to walk too far on your own, liaise with hotel staff who are more than helpful.

We (family of five) stayed at the tanzanite executive for one night, having arrived at Dar and before we flew to Mwanza. We took a family apartment which was huge: three bathrooms (though one a bit stinky - a drainage problem which was explained), kitchen, living room and three bedrooms. All very clean, with great skyline views. Hotel arranged a taxi from and to airport, as well as an early (basic) breakfast. Overall, great value. And close to Mambos for a great on-street meal.
