“Good Hotel”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

On my first visit in Dar Es Salam, i landed in the Hyatt Regency.
Without any doubt it is a high level hotel, with a little bit of charm.
My room was very big (thanks also to the free upgrade) and clean.
The bathroom was spectacular.
The only point is the price, expensive for turism.

I stayed in a suite in this hotel in Dar- Es-Salaam on business in August 2012. This place is great and safe, right in the heart of Dar Es Salaam. The suite was wonderful. It had a guest toilet, a lounge with desk and TV. The bedroom was very spacious and the bathroom was great. The television had a good selection of TV channels and I was able to connect my playbook to the TV to watch one of my own movies as well.
Breakfast had a good selection of different foods and I loved the fresh honey glazed baked gammon they served. The hotel as a lot of areas that can be used to informal meetings if necessary. The bar on the 8th floor was a bit deserted but the views where great.

It hasn't lost any of its style or pizzazz since it was taken over by the Hyatt. Beautifully designed building, excellent location, attentive service, great amenities, stunning food. No complaints. Worth the price tag!

This was my second time staying in the Hyatt - the last time I had stayed in the hotel was when it was the Kempinski. There have been changes made, almost all for the better.

I feel the security in the hotel building itself is better, now that you are required to use a key card to get to your floor. The wifi was recently upgraded and was mostly very good - I got cut off using FaceTime and Skype with friends on a few occasions, but that was during what I believe was the heaviest use time.

Breakfast came included with my stay and was just as good as it was before. The bed was a little harder than I remember it being, but was still adequate. The service and staff were always attentive to my needs, although sometimes food service especially could be slow. Tried the food much more than my last visit, and I must say that I was very pleased. Even though it was expensive compared to other restaurants in the area, it was always safe to eat and the quality was exceptional.

The location was relatively close to everything I needed. Also, the gym was open 24 hours and never too crowded that I couldn't get on a treadmill.

Highly recommend for business and pleasure travel.

Room Tip: Any room facing the harbor is a good deal.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Dar es Salaam for a meeting in July 2012. The service was excellent. The staff here are extremely friendly. They go above and beyond to make sure your experience in Dar es Salaam is a pleasant one.

The food was probably one of the best things about this hotel. The breakfast and lunch buffets in the Palm restauarant and the dinner choices at the Oriental restaurant were superb. It was also nice that access to the fitness center was available at no charge - definitely necessary after all that eating!!

The hotel seemed very business-minded. The internet in the room was a little slow, but it was fine. $55 USD for an entire week worth of internet was not a bad deal.

The views of the water from the rooftop and my room were a really nice touch, very relaxing.
Overall, no complaints about this hotel. I would definitely recommend for people coming to Dar on business!

I cannot praise this hotel enough:

The service and the friendliness of the staff at the Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam was excellent. We felt welcome the very second we stepped into the lobby of the hotel.

We had arranged and airport pick-up and after arrival (and the annoying visa on arrival procedure) the air-conditionned drive to the hotel was very relaxing

Our room was on the Club Level and the lounge was very nice for an afternoon cappucino. There is also breakfast offered there but I would recommend to go to the main restaurant for that (if it is included in your rate).

The breakfast was FANTASTIC, there was everything imaginable offered, they had made-to-order omlettes and crepes and so much more (fresh fruits, traditional African dishes etc.)
I would also recommend the theme nights at the restaurant during the week, which were great. The offering on the weekend was just OK, but there is also an Asian restaurant in the hotel which offers great dishes for that time.

Since we had booked a short Safari we left the hotel for two days and they allowed us to leave some of our bags in storage which was great!

We also spend a couple of days in Zanzibar. Both of our flights got cancelled (this is another story). On the way back to Europe we stayed again one night at the Hyatt Regency. We had arranged an airport pick-up and even though our rebooked flight arrived at the domestic terminal instead of the International our driver was already waiting there for us --- I was truly impressed by that.

If you are looking for a great hotel in Dar es Salaam look no further!

One negative point:
The "rooftop" bar was pretty underwhelming. The Club lounge was a much better place to relax. Also, you should be prepared to pay a lot, prices are pretty high but you get what you pay for: excellent service and quality
