The corner room that I had was very nice. The water did not always work. The electronic door key locked me out twice and only one person knew how to restore my entrance. Once, I had to wait until the staff member came to work.

Local food available
The room is spacious and well equipped. A great place to experience typical Tanzanian breakfast. The hotel doesn't have elevator but the hotel staff were kind and helped with luggage.

Management with a bad attitude
We arrived shortly after midnight due to the flight schedule. They gave me a lower class room than what I paid for. The next morning I asked to get an executive room, which I had paid for. The receptionist called the manager, who they called Madame. She had a bad attitude like she was doing me a favor giving me the room I had paid for. We moved to a room where the toilet had no seat and the refrigerator did not work. Neither did the safe. This was not acceptable, so we were shown other rooms but Madame was not sure whether things would actually work. In the end we got a decent executive room but like before the refrigerator did not work. Stuff spoiled. And a whole morning was wasted waiting for Madame. Also, in that room the safe did not work. So after a long wait they brought in one ... which did not open. Eventually the safe was opened but what is the point of having it if someone can just carry it away. Some days there was a hand towel and on others not. Same for floor mat in front of shower. One morning no warm water!! The breakfast was okay but sometimes none of the 15+ coffee cups and saucers had no tea spoons. The options in the restaurant are limited and are further limited by what they can actually do. - Grill did not work. The lighting on our corridor was out. They did not care. This could be a much better place If they only had MUCH better management. I hope the owner reads this review.

Nice People
The staff here is kind and helpful . The area is in a crowded Dar es Salaam neighborhood near Karikoo. Finding can be a challenge for local Uber drivers. I was prepared with Google maps directions downloaded.

Nice staff, good location, but the closet in the room did not open properly, the kettle and fridge didn't have a socket nearby and thus weren't plugged, the coffee and tea in the room weren't refilled for the 2nd night

Pros - nice & helpful staff, good food in the restaurant, very nice room for the price, comfy bed Cons - the wifi is awful....it basically disappears every 10-20min. Expect to barely have access to internet. The power/electricity in the room is operated with the key card. There are no light switches. So at night when you want the lights out you have to remove the key card from a power point in the wall. The problem is at night you will not have ac unless you sleep with the lights on. Its impossible to be in the room with no ac....Dar is extremely hot...so I slept with the lights on every night which is not ideal. Also, when my sheets were changed, the 'clean' sheets had nasty stains on them. The location is not the best or the safest....dont go out at night unless you have someone with you. Night club on the 5th floor open on Saturday night. Dont plan on sleeping with the bumping base....but if you like to dance its a good drop in
