Nice hotel in a great location
The hotel location and service staff were amazing. The hotel was undergoing renovations and so 1/2 elevators was out of service at times, the restaurants in the hotel werent open at their advertised times, and the hot water in our shower was not always very hot. Some minor inconveniences but an all around enjoyable stay.

Good 6.0
There are other, better hotels
Came here for a business trip, and there are three genuinely wonderful things about this hotel: the location, the wheelchair accessible room, and the breakfast. Some of the challenges are common with Dar hotels (service challenges) others (the strong smell of mildew in the room) are more individually challenging. I don’t think it’ll stay again: there are other, better hotels at the same cost.

It was good. Highly recommend the manager Christopher for his helpful service. Keep it up.

Very good 8.0
The hotel should either remove the carpets in rooms and corridors or ensure regular thorough vacuum. There is a damp feeling in corridors and rooms.
