My husband and I had our wedding at Hotel Slipway, and it was a wonderful experience! 30 members of my family flew in from the USA and we were met with the highest form of hospitality and professionalism. The staff was caring, kind and helpful. I want to give a special thank you to Riann and Lusinda for making our experience so easy and accommodating. We had an amazing time!!

I stayed here for 6 nights and it was nice for my short stay in Dar for a wedding. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel did a wonderful job of hosting the wedding, the setup was amazing by the pool. Pool towels and wash cloths are rare at this hotel, so pack your own. We had to change our first room because it had a moldy chemical smell and rug had big stain. The Hotel itself could definitely use some TLC and updating such as removing those old rugs in every room. The public beach is not really swimmable. There is a large variety of shopping outlets on the property and right next door is a huge local shopping market with even cheaper prices. Several restaurants, the Thai restaurant has good food. Several machines at the gym were out of service. This hotel is budget friendly and great for very short stays

I had a two weeks retreat at Hotel Slipway and it was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were beautiful; it was the calm and peaceful environment that I needed. Being able to order room service from the different restaurants available was very convenient, and every meal was always delivered with a smile by the staff, who were very attentive and friendly throughout my stay. I hope to visit again soon!

It was an absolute pleasure staying at the Slipway Hotel. My colleague and I were in Tanzania on a fishing trip and chose to stay at the hotel on our rest days. In addition to the extremely friendly and helpful staff, the manager assisted us with all our transfer needs and COVID testing prior to our return to South Africa. The hotel is ideally situated in the bay of Dar Es Salaam, in a peaceful and safe neighborhood. Definitely recommend the Slipway hotel and the managing staff who work there!
