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.
very helpful staff
* nice and large room * hotel service and friendly staff
* breakfast was indish, would have been nice if it was more international.
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.
I like the hotel food facility and location only
if we inform to hotel staff any requirement like when we visited there room inner door handle broken i informed to reception and other staff to repair because we can not open the door while we inside the room they did't repair also same with air condition and cable tv
Food and hospitality
Lift service is very slow. u need to change.
good , warm welcome, location in town, nice terrasse
the fact you can only put the clim when you enter the room(card): hot during the day
Lovely well designed hotel.
I guess the food.
Excellent Indian food Great for pre flight stopover. Would use it again.
god for bisnes not expensiv . Situated in Dawn Tawn.
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.
