great place to stay
very friendly staff, very good Service, good Food at reasonable Prices, comfortable beds, all things working well. The only thing I missed, as I arrived early, was a cosy lounge to sit in as I waited. The rooftoop veranda was locked most of the time, which I think, was a shame. But it was a good experience and if I come through Dar again, I'll be happy to stay there!

Excellent family hotel
Excellent hotel for a very low price. Was in Dar for a conference. Other colleagues paid 5 times more for more or less same room type and service. Hotel staff are very friendly. Breakfast is OK for the price paid, toast, omelette, pan cakes, fruits, juice, tea, coffee and other tasty stuff,. Room condition excellent. Location is great, around 8 mins walk to city mall. Huge street market on Sunday at walking distance. Money changer very close. Safe and clean place for families.

Good 6.0
Fine for a new nights
The hotel was fine for the few nights we were there. The room was comfortable enough although very dark as there was little natural light. The bathroom smelt quite badly as if the drains needed cleaning.

Great stay
Very clean, safe, nice continental breakfast (one day they had curried oats which were really nice). Staff English is very good, and they were quite helpful. Would highly recommend. Next time I come to Dar I will stay here.
