    Nice, clean and safe. The staff was excellent, and it was in walking distance to a few shop and restaurants. The WiFi upstairs was spotty, but the lobby WiFi worked great

    I am happy I chose Rainbow hotel for my stay in Dar. I got really sick just when I arrived and the staff was amazing, very helpful and service minded! The hotel is located close to the ferry terminal, the room was nice and so was the restaurant at the first floor.

    The location is fantastic. The front desk staff is super friendly. The restaurant, thought pricey for Tanzania, was delicious! It's a budget hotel, so no frills. But was well maintained and clean. I would definitely stay here again. To be honest though, I lucked out and was the only person in the room. It perhaps would have been less good if I had to stay with strangers in my room.

    Rainbow hotel was a good place to stay for our overnight in Dar es Salam to take the Zanzibar ferry the next day. The hotel was modern and seemed very western style. The ferry terminal is about a 200m walk from the hotel door. Had a good (if only slightly more pricey) curry at the hotel restaurant, which was very worth it for us as they were able to serve at 9:30 at night when our bus got there. Location wise would recommend for the ferry, however the neighbourhood was not touristy.

    Was lucky enough to get a whole three-bed room to myself. Ideal location within walking distance of the fast ferry, excellent breakfast and a late-opening restaurant. No problems whatsoever.

    The first doorm room they show me,smeld mug.. Then i got a new room that was okey. Im disepointed that it is not included breakfast.. If you are gonna call your place for a hotel it shud be included breakfast! You can fint hostels to the same price, and there you get breakfast.. Its nice that it is close to the harbour.

    This was not at all what I was expecting. Staff was not welcoming at all and didn’t help me deal with a situation regarding a cab driver that requested more money. WiFi did not work and the room was not really a hostel feel at all
