Sophia House is centrally located in Da es Salaam, within walking distance of restaurants and the Zanzibar ferry.
We stayed at Sophia House in June 2012 and were warmly welcomed by the manager Tawfiq and his staff. Our room was nice and clean and very reasonably priced at $45 per night. This included air-conditioning and a ceiling fan, a mini fridge, a very good hot shower, breakfast every morning, free wi-fi and free laundry service.
All the rooms also share a “common area” on each floor where we were able to sit, often using internet at the large table.
The staff were all friendly and Tawfiq was great, providing us with helpful information on Dar, places to go, where things were, arranging taxis’, etc., nothing was too much trouble.
Sophia House is excellent value in Dar and was a great place to stay.
