When traveling to Dar es Salaam, l always stay at the Harbour View Suite since many years because of its very convenient location. The rooms are exceptionally large, also the bathrooms. I always appreciate how quite and well isolated the rooms are, giving you the total tranquility you expect for a good rest although some refurbishing needs to be done. The corner rooms, which have a jacuzzi tub, are the best and give a great view over the harbour. A nice swimming pool adjacent to a very well equipped fitness-room situated on the 9th floor are available at no charge to the hotel guests. There a very nice New Orleans style bar with sometimes good jazz music but, strange enough, the place does not seem to attract many customers. Unfortunately the restaurant has lost the quality it used to have a few years ago when to food was really excellent, offering very good Cajun style dishes and a larger range of international cuisine. Nowadays it is very Indian oriented and the few Western dishes on the menu are of poor quality; the steak l ate was cheap meat, tenderized and quite small, served with badly fried chips and a tiny heap of what was supposed to be a mixed salad. Quality and variety of food offered for breakfast has also dropped, cheap and not very well prepared warm dishes have replaced the more than decent assortment that the hotel used to offer before. Very poor, not to say almost inexistent, assortment of cold cuts and cheese, croissants that you better ignore and not very good fruit juices. A self-serve coffee automat would be most welcome rather than having to wait sometimes much too long to have it served by the waiters. All in all, sleep there, eventually have breakfast but there are several better place at walking distance where much better food can be found.
