After a long day of flying from New York to Dar es Salaam with a connection in Dubai, I have never been so happy and relieved to check into a hotel. This is not just a hotel...it's a really nice first rate hotel. We had arranged with the concierge prior to our visit to have a driver pick us up from the airport and that was just the beginning of a very pleasant experience. The hotel lobby is beautiful and sophisticated and very welcoming after a long day of flying. We were immediately greeted by the staff who quickly checked us into our room so we could take a much needed shower. The room was nice and comfortable and the internet worked well so it was easy to let everyone in the states know we had arrived safely. It was a nice surprise to discover the room not only had a nice shower but a big tub too.
After a nice long bath and a quick nap, we arranged with the hotel to have a car and driver take us around Dar es Salaam for the afternoon. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The driver they gave us was very good and took us to a great little bar over looking the Indian ocean as well as to a fantastic Indian restaurant for dinner.
If you are worried about security, there is no need for concern. This hotel is behind gates and there are guards at the entrance. Unfortunately, the top floor restaurant/bar was closed the night we were there, but it looked nice when we checked it out and if we are ever back there, I am sure I will have a cocktail or two.
