I stayed not very long here, rooms are clean and nicely maintained. Staff is polite but not as friendly as other hotels in Dar. Terrace restaurant is good but overpriced. I left an expensive electronic toothbrush in the room at check out. When I asked if they found it in the room

Response from Lusinda N, General Manager at Hotel Slipway

Good Morning Milkigarthr Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Hotel Slipway and I trust all is well with you. Apologies for the loss of your toothbrush. My team has done a thorough search of your room and did not find your toothbrush. So if it seems like they repeated the same answers, it is because the answer is the same to your question. They simply did not find your toothbrush. I can say with honesty that no single person would want to take a toothbrush that was used by someone else, regardless of how expensive it is. That's just gross, so if they say they did'nt find it in your room, trust me its just not there. Best regards TEAM HOTEL SLIPWAY

My daughter and I stayed here in November of 2018. This is a lovely hotel, with a beautiful pool, two good restaurants, a complex of little interesting shops, and friendly staff. Once again, however, our reservation was lost. We were given an adequate room for the first night,

This is a quirky, lovely hotel right on the water. The owners and the entire staff are super warm and welcoming and have made me feel completely at home as I have spent several weeks back and forth here for work. My whole team felt great about staying there.

HI , We have stayed at the Slipway several times and love it and the area. But I can't recall the time it takes to get to the airport. How long does it take to drive to the airport in rush hour traffic. We will be going to the Airport on a Friday during the late morning. Is the new airport terminal open yet? Can we make arrangements for a shuttle to the airport? Also, is there still a cell phone shop in the shopping center to buy new sim cards and minutes on our Tanzanian Cell phone? Thanks for any assistance or information.
2 hours is an average for travel time and there are 2 cell Phone shops in the centre

Hi I would like to book for 1-3 October. Can I be guaranteed a room with a sea view, in the new wing and on a high floor? Do you have rooms with a balcony? Thanks in advance.
I booked a room with a sea view in the new block, but got a room in the back with a view of a car park and the back of Barclays Bank. There were no bottles of drinking water and no coffee or tea for the kettle in the room

Hi, are there any standard rooms with sea views? Is a standard room similar to size with an executive room? Thank you!
Sorry, I do not know the difference between a standard and an executive room. I stayed in a spacious room which did not have an ocean view. Frankly, the pool area, and the restaurant are all outside and I spent my time at the hotel outdoors; I used the room to sleep and shower.

Bonjour, je pensais réserver cet hôtel pour une nuit, pouvez vous me dire combien de temps faut il à la navette pour rejoindre l'aéroport. Merci de votre réponse, bien cordialement, Cigalou
De mémoire 20 à 25 minutes mais tard la nuit. Je pense plus en journée car il faut prendre l'artère principale. Bon voyage
