    Try to avoid this city if possible!

    Try to avoid this city if possible! They have nice pictures of some areas in travelling brochures but this is like 5% of the toal city. Mostly this city is heavily broken roads, mud-walkways, overcrowded, traffic jams and polluted air. When flying to Tanzania try to be it that city not too long. Fly or drive away to your next destination ASAP. And remember - prefer to use (locally represented) agency when travelling longer distances in Tanzania. If something happens with the vehicle (sooner or later it will happen) you have someone who might help you or at least worries about you.

    I liked the outskirts of town - 1hr away from the airport was where I spent most at. The main city was a bit overwhelming and stressful at times, i.e. police officers hunting after foreigners and questioning your presence etc. I had two occasions where I was stopped just like that and the officers asking heaps of questions like where you come from, what your travels purpose was, what do you do, and if you're married (I'm a female solo traveller). I answered all the questions succinctly & clearly. However these officers just somehow would find ways to make it go longer than necessary. One even accused me of not having the right document (I was like what do you mean with the valid passport and visa?!). Anyway, he wanted to take me to the police station and court of law. I had a local driver with me who talked him out of it by giving him some shillings. And he turned to me and said "it's solved". Make sure you always carry your passport or ID documents with you. It's always helpful to know at least a local that you can reach out too when you find yourself trapped in tricky situations. Not much to see either in DAR. Maybe spend more time outside of the city.

    Dar es Salaam is wonderful city to visit.

    Dar es Salaam is wonderful city to visit. It has many interesting sites and amazing high-end restaurants to choose from. We had a wonderful experience at the AKEMI REVOLVING RESTAURANT where my spouse thoroughly enjoyed Lasagna. My grilled chicken was not exactly up to the task but passable. The service was great but the hotel manager Mr. Lorenzo Sachin could do with some PR. He moved around the restaurant totally ignoring some tables (such as ours) while busying himself with customers on other tables. Mr. Sachin, customer equity is important more so in hotel and restaurant industry... Mwenda (Kenya)

The big lockers with individual key (never seen so big ones, could fit two people inside!), they offered towel (very appreciated), their western breakfast filled with fresh fruits was a bless, clean room & comfortable bed, AC, easy access by moto bolt or public transport. The Manager is very friendly and helpful with information. Tottaly recommend. Great value for money. If I'm back in dar es salaam will stay there again for sure!

    It is a perfect hotel for those who want to enjoy Dar es salaam. It's in the middle of the city so easily can get everywhere(ex. Coco Beach, Ferry terminal, main bus terminal, and even airport) within 15-30mins. Available hot water and air-conditioning 24/7. Wide and clean room with cozy bed. Moreover all of the staff in this hotel are very welcoming and friendly. I've got lots of help from them :) Thank you for your help, Fahadi.

    We stayed here briefly before an early flight. The room was spacious, although very simple. The fan and A/C worked well so we had a good night's rest. The hotel manager helped us arrange a reliable driver which was extremely helpful and gave us peace of mind. We got to eat dinner cooked by his wife while we were in a hurry to go get our rapid COVID tests and it was some of the best food I had in TZ.

    I booked this place at the last minute on the recommendation of a friend because of a travel change that left me in Dar es Salaam for a day. Alexandra was great, allowing me to arrive in the middle of the night and stay until evening for my next flight. George, the driver was great and so were the staff in the house. I was only there for the day, but it was quiet and comfortable and very pretty.
