The location is great for staying for a bit and then going to the airport, which I guess is the primary reason people stay here. The room had a/c but it didn't really work so we had to rely on the fan. The shower didn't have a shower curtain, and the hot water wasn't working. Overall it was a clean place with a nice size room though, and was good for transit purposes. What we paid and what it was didn't quite match up though.


Great, clean place to stay, very near airport. Works very well if you're leaving early in the morning from the airport and don't want to spend 1hr+ getting out of Dar.

Basic place to stay near the airport. The wifi worked, the bed was good, but the staff was not very helpful or clear. They give you towels and soap, which is nice.-


The location was great for access to the airport but the area it is in leaves something to be desired, I would not have stayed here on my own. However the room was comfortable and the staff helpful. The taxi collected us and returned us efficiently to the airport which was a real great.
