Moevenpick Royal Palm Hotel
I was recommended to stay at Moevenpick Hotel in Ohio street, downtown Dar es Salaam. So I checked the hotel just to be sure it was a good recommendation. It is a large, 4 stars hotel with a big outdoor swimmingpool. The atmosphere is high class with no african feeling. The price for a room was too expensive for me.
The swiss hospitality
This is used to be the Sheraton, one of DSM oldest hotels. it is rated as a 5* hotel, which is ok for Tanzania standards. rooms are nice but nothing wow ( well except the executive suite which i entered .. big WOW ). try the Kibo bar (live music) and the outdoor restaurant is very nice. It's not directly located on the beach, but has a nice view of the indian ocean.
Directions: Ohio street
I would avoid this place
We hated this hotel. It is quite large and impersonal, and the staff are mostly indifferent.
Although it states it has more than 1 restaurant, only one was open. It is difficult to find your way around, the bar has no atmosphere and neither has anything else.
The rooms are average.
Unique Quality: The only saving grace was the waiter in the buffet restaurant (the only one open). He was nice and helpful and cheerful.
Too Pricey for the Service
The Royal Palm was formally known as the Sheraton and all the major conferences in Dar Es Salaam are held there.
Their pool is good but everything is overpriced. When I do stay there on business, I always leave feeling slightly short changed.
The Holiday Inn is a much better location.
Unique Quality: Good Pool, all the important VIPs stay there, Very expensive.
Directions: Every taxi driver will know it but because it is the most expensive hotel in Dar, they will try and overcharge you a bit.
