I came to Dar Es Salaam for work for a couple of weeks. After making an initial booking of just 3 days at Giraffe I ended up extending my stay as I found the place so accommodating. I had read the earlier reviews and had concerns about the noise, so before confirming my booking I called up to query the noise issue. I was assured by the Front Office Manager that noise would not be a problem - on weekends they have a DJ and a live band as well as a cultural show, but the music subsides by 10 or 11pm - so if you're an early bird and need to be in bed by 9pm on the weekend then bring some earplugs :) As for complaints about the breakfast that I read about in earlier reviews, it seems the staff have been responding to feedback as there was a changing variety of breakfast on offer every morning, as well as omelettes cooked to order. My room was clean and spacious with great views of the ocean from the balcony. The beach here is uncrowded, and virtually deserted during weekdays, and in my opinion the beach area in front of the hotel is the cleanest and most well-maintained compared to the other hotels along this stretch of beach. Getting into the city centre was not a problem as you can get a tuk-tuk (it's called a 'bajaj' locally) from outside the hotel - the only problem is the Dar Es Salaam traffic, so avoid rush hour! But what made my stay at Giraffe extra pleasant was the warmth and friendliness of the staff. I would definitely go back to Giraffe and I recommend it to anyone who wants to stay by the beach, in a pleasant spot in Dar, away from the city centre.

The hotel was my expectations, the location was wonderful.. the manager and staff were accommodating. security is perfect and it was fun. my only problem was television stations.. there were only few stations to choose from.. but when i demanded for an African Movie channel, the manager made sure i got it.. i will give them 500% if that is possible.

Staff is super friendly and tried to organize all our special requests. They organized a massage for us in our room and even had a wonderfull surprise for us: the possibility to eat our dinner directly in the beach!! There has been a change in management and there are currently some renovation works going on, but it is not noisy- great job!
