recommend this hotel very much. Breakfast is good, rooms are clean, and staff are very courteous. I was picked up at 2 am at airport by hotel taxi, and the price and service were good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SPiderkins Holiday Inn, Dar es Salaam
Excellent hotel, nicely positioned, and up to European standards. All the staff were courteous, friendly and very helpful.
The concierge, Jehoshaphat, was exceptional, a superb guy.
The suite was well appointed and very comfortable.. The rooftop bar/restaurant was terrific and the food of good standard.
Overall, a very good stay and good value for money. Can highly recommend

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by moralesjoao Good hotel in city center
This hotel is on a good location and perfect for long or short stay. The restaurant El Gaucho is good and the prices are acceptable. There's as well a Bar and Coffee shop on the first floor but the best is the rooftop area where you can enjoy dinner or some drinks. This is a nice spot to start the night during the weekend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by frequentvisitor62 Average and in-consistent
I have had several stays at the Holiday Inn Dar Es Salaam over the last 3 or so months. The staff are always friendly, smiling and greeting you. The rooms are average but there is ongoing work and improvement happening.
There is in-consistency in the rates charges with each of my last 3 visits attracting different charges (the same travel agency makes all of my bookings)
In my view the biggest area lacking is in the food area. Breakfasts are simply boring with very little imagination or care taken. The warm food is simply put into warmers and left. Sausages and potato's get hard and dried out, there is very little change in what is offered on a daily basis, and all changed dishes follow the same theme. The quality of the cold cuts, sausages and cheeses isn't very good either.
The evening meals are better with most of the dishes that I have had being freshly prepared, but the lack of imagination is still evident.
While there are some better hotels in the city, I am loyal to the IHG brand and hope that this review is viewed as a positive input to improving the hotel in general.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mama Africa Unpleasant experience
The staff is rude and service very bad. Breakfast is old and tasteless. Took almost 2 hours to prepare a starter. Linen and towels are tatty and need replacement. Carpets are very dirty. Pillows are worn and smelly.
Overall not recommended!
