When one stays at a Holiday Inn, one expects to experience what is an international standard in hotel accommodation. At the Hoilday Inn, Dar Es Salaam, one gets this to, in my most recent experience, to a 99% level.
The only negative that I experienced was the stand by light on the television in the room which is a particularly bright, almost flourescent, blue which makes sleeping a bit difficult if yoy are light sensitive when trying to sleep.
Depending on how this would affect one, there is NO other reason for not staying at this hotel.
It's proximity to the city centre the area in general make it ideal for business visits, in particular.
This was not my first visit to the Dar Es Salaam Holiday Inn and will not be my last.

This hotel is being renovated.
Hence, noise can be a problem during the day, and I experienced it from 4 pm to 8 pm my second day there which was annoying.
Had staff told me upon checking in that renovations were taking place right next door to my room, or overhead my room, I would have asked for another room!
Towels also not white but 'greyish'. When reporting these problems with the new Manager, he told me they had towels on order - although I have had same experience earlier this year ...
Overall, there are some good improvements to the rooms, and the open air restaurant/bar on the roof, has been re-vamped.
I feel that if the windows could be double-glazed to improve noise factor, and it would also help to reduce 'aircon' costs !
Staff are very friendly and efficient.
Menus and food, improved since my last trip
