Helpful Staff and a welcoming environment. Rooftop bar is very cool.
Not quite North American standards for a North American price.
Welcoming and helpfull staff Correct hotel for transit or connecting flight.
Not at eurpopean standards but correct.
Some of the front desk receptionists (particularly an Indian lady) were very helpful.
The neighborhood is bad, the mattress is very stiff, the bathroom is terrible, the kitchen utensils are poor and there were no supplies like for tea or coffee making.
Large room good location helpful staff good breakfast
Hard mattress a/c was good but blew right on the bed.
Given the existing trafic problems in Dar it is a useful alternative if you are transiting there.
Everything except Cartoon Network channel for the kids
The staff has been very helpful and kind, great service. The restaurant also offers good food, which is great if you are a solo traveller for business. Wi if was also reliable and always working. Check in and out both very quick and easy. Would go back again.
It could be a bit noisy at night, especially on the lower floors due to the busy street, but not to disturb your sleep. The TV did not have international channels (BBC, Aljazeera, CNN).
It was just perfect, and the manager Nitya has been very helpful all through
Great value Walk to ferry for Zanzibar Helpful staff
The staff is very friendly and helpful, the roof bar is fantastic. Good location - central but not noisy.
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.
the hotel is in good location very close to the city center, shopping, money exchange bureaus, taxis... checking was was simple and swift. Even though i arrived early morning there was no issue. staff at the reception were very helpful and friendly. the room was wide enough with enough space. equipped with all necessary facilities, flat TV with various channels, fridge, stove etc. comfortable bed, good shower with hot water. Room was generally very clean. Helpful and very friendly staff from the reception, the bellboy (Yunus) to the rooftop cafe staff led by Patrick. Their services and gesture made me feel at home. looking forward for my next return trip!!!!
the breakfast menu mainly caters for sub-continent dishes. The menu needs to be improved a lot. The shower curtains in some rooms need attention. The "no disturbance" sign is not clear, as such there the bell rings at least twice the cleaner and then housekeeping to check the mini bar! This was really disturbance!
The staff were friendly it was a huge room
there were mosquitos in my room and no bed net
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
rooftop, rooms were clean and nice, shower was ice, great to watch tv and have a beer on the rooftop
wish it was a bit cheaper
Comfortable hotel with good meal options.
The guys were helpful in planning the safari. One Mr Atul the safari planner was fantastic
Wonderful room. Great location, really nice area. Overall staff very friendly.
Sometimes staff asked for tips, on occasions this was annoying.
The staff were pleasant and extremely helpful.
Nitya was extremely extremely helpful. Thank you so much.
Not all of the staff spoke good English and thus some issues where not easily clarified...
staff always available to help even walkign with you to the closest ATM to take money. room spatious, air conditioning, a kitchen angle. location central easy to walk. nice view from the room. perfect for a stop over of few days
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.
