Staff was very helpful, including a quick response on email when we asked to change our arrival date. Rooms were spacious and clean. Enjoyed the warm shower with good pressure. Internet connection was good.


Really good guesthouse and great value for money. The house was beautiful and Nancy was very helpful. No restaurant on site but there is a small local restaurant and a couple of small shops just across the street if you don't feel like going into the city and don't want to cook. it's also quite close to a supermarket and smaller shopping center. Highly recommended for a stay in dar.

The hostel is a long way from the town centre and ferry ports. When we arrived we were met by a man who appeared to live in the complex of house/flats. he quickly showed us into a maisonette and into our room which was very well equipped with air-con, and brilliant en-suite and beds, but we didn't see any staff and there was no one to pay or arrange a taxi on the morning we left. but the manager eventually spoke to us over the phone to arrange payments and a taxi for us.


The place is very pleasant. Not in the centre of town but with a selection of local shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The rooms are clean and well equipped with a lovely lounge, free wi-fi and a kitchen area for preparing food and drinks. The rooms are in buildings within a compound which has 24hr security. Ask taxi for Mikocheni/Rose Garden Rd to get to the right area. Nancy was very helpful and everything was very easy. Would definitely recommend Alemap House.
