    In a busy central city location. Brilliant rooftop bar for fresh air and smokers. Restaurant served us a great meal there.

    Bed was extremely firm.

    Big rooms , very clean , friendly staff , good location

    Breakfast with no varieties " more to Indian " , better to avoid staying in first two floors because of noise and kitchen smell , no parking

    Friendly receptionist, willing to let me stay in my room after check-out time; affordable prices of minibar

    The location in downtown DSM is good if you're here for business, but not so nice for tourists

    Wonderful room. Great location, really nice area. Overall staff very friendly.

    Sometimes staff asked for tips, on occasions this was annoying.

    I've been positively impressed by the service and hospitality I've received at Hotel Sapphire. it was my first time in Dar es Salaam and the hotel staff has helped me since my arrive accompanying me to take cash at the ATM, providing very good suggestion for dinner, keeping my extra luggage 3 days while I went on safari, and providing transfer to from airport or port at very reasonable price. The hotel room is very spacious, clean, with very good shower/toilet facility, air conditioning, even equipped with a kitchen corner and fridge, all things not very common at least for my experience in Africa . All this at very good price. I will come back anytime I'll be in Dar. thank you"

    For a business traveler who wants value for money the Sapphire is great: it offers a spacious room, good WIFI, a nice rooftop cafe and terrace and a gym. Plus an Indian restaurant.

    The breakfast buffet is ok but quite Asian. More fresh fruits and a broader choice of cereals, bread and cakes would be nice for European and American guests.

    Nice shower, really nice gym. Nice room and beds comfy Close to ferry to Zanzibar.

    Wifi was slow in our room but good in lobby. Breakfast options weren't very "breakfast" like. I personally cannot have curry and noodles that early in the morning. The pancakes and eggs were nice but by the time we got there, they had almost run out.

    We used the Hotel Sapphire as a stopover in Dar Es Salaam between arrival at the international airport and flying from the national airport to our safari camps. we didn't want to pay American chain prices for the privilege of crashing out for a few hours.It was perfect for this .The restaurant even accommodated an early breakfast. the staff were wonderfully welcoming and very efficient. They had arranged for us to be collected from the airport and although we changed the flight times, the driver was there. En suite room large and clean and bathroom delivered hot and cold water.

    Not there long enough to have any gripes.

    excellent staff and management, we arrived a day early and they did everything to accomodate us. the breakfast is delicious!! huge variety and more. the rooms were huge with dining areas and kitchen. clean with air con, fan and free wifi and LCD tvs with a huge selection of channels including those in english. gym availble upstairs, i never used it but my brother travelling with me was happy with the facilities and used it both nights. two computers available to use in reception. i would stay again

    teh second night we moved rooms as we had a seperate booking, when we came to move our 2nd rooms were not ready, they took us in when the place was a mess, after waitign 10mins for teh cleaners to finish cleaning, we notified the manager and within seconds were relocated to another room.
