Thought I booked a 4star hotel, but its more like 2star hotel. I have never felt so Very Uninportant Person in any hotel before. I was worried for flu because the ac was right above the bed. I asked for another room but there was no room available in the same price range as I had booked and I said that has to be a room where the ac is further away. She had to check with the manager but I never got any feedback. The room was huge but the bathroom was tiny and smelly.

Good hotel with pool and conference rooms. The rooms, reception, pool, breakfast, etc. are on different levels and not always where you expect ;-) Good reception and security at certain areas. A lot of business around. I had a suite where everything was perfect, with a good view and quiet. When I left the room to go swimming I took the badge at the door which was a fake one, only for electricity. At the reception I received fast help. The breakfast is good an big choice, asian, african, european.

This hotel in the centre of Dar es Salaam was our refuge for a day before leaving for an early morning flight. Finding one's way into the hotel and understanding the corridors and elevator options was a bit of a challenge. The room was spacious and clean. Not sure that I would recommend it for tourists.

Dear TorontoMac, Thank you for your feedback. We do our best to make our guests comfortable and safe in the hotel. We are sorry you found it challenging to find your way through our corridors and lifts. Hope you noted that we have posted signs within the hotel to assist our guests in this regard. Additionally, it is normal for a person to be confused with direction in a new place. We prefer to call it the unique feature of Harbour View Suites.

Initial concerns were raised when seeing the building. Entry is through a lobby with entrance to a shopping mall then left access to reception on the eleventh floor. Our rooms were accessed through various corridors and stairs, with the lifts being plentiful, confusing and only serving certain floors. Exiting the property required two or three different lifts in different sections of the hotel. Our rooms were far from representative of the pictures shown on the website. Neither were they clean or well appointed. Plentiful in the supply of mosquitoes which is never good. The air conditioning was adequate. Bar service was terrible. We ordered two gin & tonics by the pool and had to remind the staff at the bar and wait forty minutes before finally receiving them. Unfortunately there was no gin in the glass. We were quite harassed by staff when we refused to pay for the non existent gin. Breakfast was included in the price. None of it except an Indian Curry and bread was fit for consumption. The meats were hard and dry from being left out for an excessive period, the bread and pastries were hard and dry. Coffee had been standing on a hot plate for several hours and not drinkable, the milk was off and separated in the coffee. Again, service was very slow and with excessive attitude. Upon check out we paid the cash city tax of USD3. The desk clerk gave me change and the receipt in an envelope. Of course I should have checked immediately as when I did there was no money. There are much nicer hotels within a short distance, especially at Oyster Bay. This property is very convenient for the port. Much more advisable to use Uber and go to Oyster Bay.
