Home away from home

My husband and I stayed at the Doubletree Hotel in Dar es Salaam from middle September to November 2013 (6-weeks) and our experience could only be described as wonderful. The hotel is well situated with all amenities (spa, restaurants, boutique etc) and is located walking distance to the famous Slipway Artisan Mall. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff is well trained and ready and willing to assist at all times. Special mention must be made of Klare Kileo, Benjamin, Andreas and Marry who went out of their way to ensure our comfort. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends and would be sure to return if the opportunity presents again.

On Friday evenings, there is a poolside buffet dinner with a live band. Great entertainment and dancing if desired.

Visiting friends in Dar

There was some confusion on initial check-in. I was asked to submit a CC for payment even though I had informed them that I had booked and paid through a travel website. Even after a manager was called, it took a few minutes to clear up the confusion. I was given the wrong type of room (reserved and paid for Twin Superior) but was provided a regular Twin. Called reception to complain and was then given the correct room type. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Hotel is clean. Free WiFi a bonus. Biggest complaint was the bathroom. Water pressure was relatively low and shower water temp choices were either hot or very hot. Toilet flush was weak. Food and beverages are quite pricey. Overall, hotel is over-priced. Nothing extraordinary about the hotel. Would stay there again because of location and staff. Outdoor terrace and poolside provide excellent sunset views.

Beautiful location

Great Hotel for the location. Located on the sea with grounds, bars and pools that take advantage of the location. Rooms were modern and large and clean. Buffet breakfast was OK. Service and maintenance were slightly lacking (security lock broken off the room door, iron board with melted holes in it, no iron, 2 calls and 40 min to get an iron, long checkout process (20min). Location is pretty remote so not much nightlife or other restaurants located near by, and its a long trip (40min) from the airport.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Taxi cab fair airport to Hotel was 35,000 TS ($23.00) You can get fixed price at the airport taxi table and its safe. The hotel will do it for $40.00 USD ( I called and ordered airport pick up by they never showed)

Better than Advertised

Our second extended stay within a month. Looked forward to getting back to this Doubletree after our intervening travel. It felt like coming home.

The Korean restaurant 2 short blocks away had excellent food at a reasonable price. Met several ex-pats there who frequent the place due to consistently good food.

Came for Layover -Wished I'd stay longer

Came for an overnight stay only (layover) but wished I'd have stayed longer. They upgraded me to a very wonderful room (No. 902) which was on top floor, had sea view and was massive. Although TV didn't fully work, they had a fantastic patio to watch the World Cup. And pool looked tremendously inviting. Also great setup with business center available 24 hours and also very good food at acceptable prices! Also look forward to the wonderful cookie @ reception!
