Last week was my third time staying in this hotel along with my family. This hotel is a savior for me and my family especially on long transit at DAR or after long flight journey. My rooms were neat, clean and BIG. Hotel pickups were very prompt. Reception was helpful as we were familiar faces. Very friendly staffs. Breakfast is OK. But I must say they have to so much room to improve their food. It feels like the cook needs to be motivated and energized. PLEASE IMPROVE YOUR FOOD. I would stay in this hotel for all my transit purpose or if i have something to do in DAR. You can have a peaceful sleep.

We ran across the Blue Sapphire when my sons flight home abruptly changed. Another day in the pandemic. I was still in Arusha and he was stuck in the Dar airport. The Blue Sapphire had a driver at the airport in 30 minutes to pick him up. I arrived the following day and found the hotel rooms spacious and comfortable. The folks at the front desk were very helpful. The restaurant next door was very good. I ate there twice and had a different sizzling plate each time. Both times the food was very good. Small bar next to it that opens in the evening. This is not a resort hotel. This is a working hotel and I found the value very good.

We picked this hotel for its proximity to the airport. Getting to/from the hotel was straightforward. Apart from that, there is nothing positive to say about this place. The room felt unclean, and bathroom looked dirty. It didn't look like much cleaning went into it if at all. The shower head fell off the mental bar and nearly crushed our feet. Most of the staff seemed miserable and unpleasant. The food we had in the hotel restaurant was mediocre. The 2 junior waiting staff were pleasant, but the more senior waiter in white shirt was extremely rude and unpleasant.

We stayed here one night between flights. Staff at reception were not so good. We were only handed the room key. Nothing more. No info about breakfast or other details. In the room we missed one towel and went down to the reception to ask for one more. They said they would send somebody. After 20 minutes still nobody had showed up so we had to ask again for it. The breakfast was not good and the staff was not good there. They were just busy talking to eachother. Room was ok but we had no hot water so showering was not nice.
