6.2.Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Be aware there is not a free shuttle as advertised, though they will send a driver the very few blocks (which cannot be walked w luggage) to pick you up. The AC worked well and had a little hot water in the bathroom. Included "continental" breakfast w/boiled eggs, fried bananas. Electricity was fairly steady. Very loud outside noise, but low mosquito level. Staff was extremely friendly and quite helpful. I'd recommend if you are low maintenance or transiting traveler.

    Terrible Neighborhood.

    The FQ Hotel is OK for a 3star hotel. However the location is the worst possible. Even though is close to the airport to get to the hotel you have to go thru a terrible neighborhood. The Tanzanian people are very nice and pacelful and there's no risk. However if you have problems with dust - You should avoid staying there. Hotels.com does not advise that the location is the worst possible.

    Pretty gross. Wasn't clean, wouldn't use the shower. AC was filthy, bare light bulb shone in my eyes through the room door window all night.

  • 8.0.Very good

    FQ Hotel's best attribute is its proximity to the airport. If you're so inclined, you could walk between the two. However, if you arrange ahead of time, they have a driver who is very friendly and can meet you at the airport to drive you safely to FQ. He was there right outside the customs area waiting for my companion and me when we arrived. The room itself was nice enough - clean, spacious, climate controlled, and adequate internet access. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is fair - enough to get you through to lunch certainly. And even though we only spoke English, the majority of staff could understand well.

    The hotel is hot and the surroundings are noisy. It's best feature is that it is walking distance from the airport

  • 8.0.Very good

    we used the hotel for an overnight stay. Very close and conveniently situated to the airport. The room overall was very clean and neat. My only issue though was getting to and from the hotel. The road to the hotel is in a very bad state. The hotel provided us with a shuttle service, however, they was a discrepancy in the price given and the price paid. My suggestion here, is confirm the price with the driver and not the Reception.

    Good hotel 5 minutes from the airport

    Hotel conveniently close to the Dar es Salaam airport. Quite new, clean, most of the staff is very friendly. Restaurant basic, but ok. Bar good. Room spacious, clean. Hot water in the shower :-) Only down side was that the manager, I presume, who was not very willing to accept that the room was paid through Hotels.com. Advice: Do the booking, but pay in the hotel upon arrival.

    Es war ein Reinfall. Für eine Nacht geht es.

    Das Hotel war eine Enttäuschung. Kein WLAN, kein Restaurant. Das Personal an der Rezeption war sehr unfreundlich.
