I frequently travel to Dar es Salaam for business and have been a regular guest of the Harbour View Suites for many years. The staff, service, location, and overall room size/ quality are the main reasons I continue to stay here. There is 24-hour room service and the Grand Restaurant on the ground floor has lots of food options. There is good and reliable wifi in the rooms. You are also across the street from the ferry terminal to Zanzibar. The location is right in the city center (Samora ave.) so very convenient for shopping, changing money, or whatever you might need during your stay. It also has very nice views of the harbor and city skyline. This hotel has everything that a business and/ or vacation traveler needs for an affordable stay in Dar.

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.

Location is great; the hotel is in the heart of the city, close to the airport and within easy reach of the major day and night attractions. Rooms are spacious and well kept, and I liked the safe deposit box, which i found useful for keeping my valuables. The shower had hot water with good pressure. My room had amazing views of the habour, and I enjoyed seeing the boats crossing from one side to the other. A swimming pool is available to cool off in hot summer. Breakfast buffet is pretty good, with a wide selection of cereals, fruits, meat and veg options. I highly recommend this hotel!

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.

The cleaning staff went above and beyond there duties and made us feel special and very welcome every day.

The breakfast was great with plenty of choices. We are in the hotel restaurant n bar most nights and the food was exceptional every night. The menu was good. The chefs need to be given credit for there work.

All staff on reception were polite and helpful.

Excellent staff members and support when needed. Clean rooms and great views of sea view room is booked. Easily access from street , easy for in and out of CBD plus near harbour for ferry to Zanzibar. Walking distance from the hotel to ferry .
Night life is great with downstairs restaurants to your disposal obviously not associated with hotel . Taxi services just by the door step 24hrs and hotel as well provide airport transfers at a reasonable costs.

Its a nice hotel in the centre of downtown Dar es salaam and easily accessible to most places in the city. The room is of good size and quite clean and comfortable. The breakfast is quite decent as well. The General Manager and his staff are very hospitable and always willing to assist at all times. I stayed for 4 nights in December and liked the place. Its a good value for me.
