Fair 4.0
Not recommend.
I have nothing good to say about this hotel other than it was very close to the airport and therefore convenient. Otherwise the room was not clean and the bed rock hard. We were given one towel to share between us and a bar of soap.The staff were not interested in their job. The lady that did breakfast seemed to be not interested in serving us and didn't seem friendly. The taxi from the airport was late and we had to remind the hotel to pick us up. However, it was only 5 dollars much cheaper than the taxi service at the airport. I suppose if you need only one night transferring to another place and don't mind a hard bed and poor service then a cheap hotel like this one is OK to put up with.

Amazing for a short layover in Dar
I was not expecting much for my stay as I was laying over for just a couple of hours for two different occasions but they exceeded my expectations. Service was excellent as I was even served breakfast at 2:30 AM. Air conditioning was working well for the two different rooms I stayed in. Highly recommend if you are just staying over for a couple of hours waiting for the flight rather than stay in the airport which is not really spacious and not a lot of places to stay while waiting for the flight.

Close and Clean!
Hotel was clean and convenient. Shuttle was waiting upon my arrival. Driver was more than patient as I had some travel challenges. The only improvement would be to have the breakfast ready on time.

Avoid this "Transit"
We have traveled all over the world and have reasonable expectations about accommodations in different areas of the world. We selected this hotel because of a very long layover and very early flight back to the US. It is indeed close to the airport but that is vastly outweighed by the conditions of the room and the property as a whole. It was very cheap but as always, you get what you pay for. To reach the hotel, you are driven down a rutted dirt road. The room was so dirty that we put our luggage in the shower to protect against possible vermin. We had dinner with the rest of our family prior to their earlier flight and waited three hours for bowls of soup. It is in a sketchy area and you can't really walk elsewhere to eat so you're stuck there. They do have a taxi that sits outside the lobby so it is convenient to return to the airport. The airport has nowhere to sit and wait and no interior restaurants and closes overnight. You would be well advised to book at one of the hotel chains farther out and plan your time accordingly.

Poor 2.0
Definitely not a 3 star hotel - maybe 1/2 star or no star. Driving to the hotel there were potholes big enough to swallow the vehicle. It was behind a 12’ fence and really scary. The room was adequate and appeared clean. The bathroom was kinda of disgusting - one small sink with a cold water tap and NO water in the shower. The staff at the front desk was polite and we paid approx, $5 to get to the airport.
