Luxury Holiday Inn?!?!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2007

Luxury as compared to a Holiday Inn in the US. After a month of camping and hiking this was a true oasis of comfort. The perfect place to clean up and get some western style food before the 30 hours of travel to get home. Its expensive but worth it if you can afford it. Highly recommend. The staff and food are great and they have the nicest cleanest rooms with great showers. Very safe.

Directions: Near all the embassies and close to the ferry dock to Zanzibar.

Centrally located high quality hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 24, 2006

We recently spent two nights at the Holiday Inn, Dar Es Salaam, our first and last night in Tanzania. The hotel is of a very high standard, nice clean and comfortable rooms (particularly the bed after a long flight), and how nice to have a bath and relax after the flight too. The bar and restaurant have a good atmosphere, the menu offers a large choice of good food. Breakfast has a great offering and is quite easy to eat too much! There is a pool, although we didn't make use of it, it is small but certainly would do the job to cool down and relax.
The staff, particularly concierge, are very friendly and helpful, all speak great english, but are more than willing to teach you a few words in swahili.

Best Quality Hotel in Dar

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 5, 2004

I have been visiting Dar Es Salaam on a very regular basis for over seven years for business and pleasure.

Although the Holiday Inn is pricey (around $120), it is the best value quality hotel in Dar.

In the other >$100 hotels, you always feel ripped off but in the Holiday Inn, the employees are fantastic.

Each worker is an individual who will be more than happy to sincerely chat to you and give you advice on Dar.

The pool is crap, so if you are looking for a bit of swimming I would avoid it. However, if you are just needing a stopover and are willing to pay that level of fees for a room, then Holiday Inn is the place for you.

Unique Quality: Great atmosphere, Internet Cafe (TSh2000/30 minutes), good bar (a bit pricey compared to the local bars but so are all the quality hotels), Restaurant has a wide variety of western and swahili foods).

I would say that the views are not as good as other quality hotels.

Directions: It is in the centre of town just off Shabaan Robert Street. Every taxi driver will know it.
