    Expensive & Bad Service(Receptionist)Super Disappointing... 1. I fully paid through Agoda, but when Check In the front desk staff ask me to pay again for the full amount. Then I show prove that I fully paid then they said ok. 2. Expensive, but very old condition, hotel interior, room interior, bathroom interior. 5 Stars Charges but 2 Stars Services and Quality. 3. Funny part is, when I check out the same funny front desk staff takes very long time to prepare my bill and AGAIN!! Charge me Room Rate AGAIN... OMG, Even this didn't happen in budget hotel but happened in Holiday Inn!!! After show prove, then only waive off the hotel rate but charging me service charge for everyday. I told her and show her the Agoda Receipt have mentioned Service Charge included but she insist need me to pay!! Due to I am late to catch taxi to Airport, I choose to pay with very dissatisfy rather than miss my flight. OMG, what a Hotel.........!!! 4. Not friendly from most of the hotel staffs. Super bad experiences, recommend stay another hotel nearby name with "RaXXXX".

    Never again”

    Comfortable bed, distance from hotel to Airport

    Greasy finger prints from previous occupant on bedside lamp switches - very Unhygienic! No International News Channels on TV, CNN was frozen, nothing else to view while killing time. No wifi in room, unable to communicate with loved ones on smart phone. Was promised Router in room after one hour but this never happened. I was assured breakfast would start at 04:20 which was a surprise as my driver was going to collect me at 04:40, this would have given me time to have a cup of coffee and a small bite to eat. This never happened, by 04:40 the eating area was still dark and staff were playing loud rap music! Lastly, during check-out, I was told I still has to pay tourist tax and service fees which was surprising as this was all included in the payment made through Agoda. After 20 mintues of waiting around they come to me and acknowledged that these additional fees had indeed been included in the initial fee. All in all for a South Africa brand name like Holiday Inn, I was extremely disappointed. The rest of my work colleagues are all using Southern Sun International. Better service and quality.

    convenient, clean and comfortable”

    comfortable rooms, 24/7 service, and rooftop bar/restaurant

    I only stayed here one night in order to catch a very early morning flight out of Dar es Salaam. The hotel is a 10 min drive to the airport ( with no traffic) and there is airport shuttle service. The room was large and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect. there is a coffee shop in the lobby and an attractive rooftop restaurant and bar, open late night. There's a pool too but I didn't see it. I had a wake up call at 0330, and my check out at 0400 was smooth and professional. the Holiday Inn is a reliable brand, and this one didn't disappoint. the downtown location is convenient for any business traveler looking for good value and comfort. I saved about USD.35 off the rack rate by booking online via agoda.

    Tired”

    Service by staff and location

    Upon arrival at 1100, I was informed that early check in would cost 50USD, I have no problem with that, however declined and the lovely lady at reception said that she could check me in at 1230 for no additional charge, she also offered to look after my bag at reception while I went for a coffee for an hour or so. Unfortunately after that pleasant experience it was mostly downhill, the room itself was clean however a very musty smell about it had. Some of the fixtures and fittings are very old and tired and I was slightly concerned about some exposed wiring on the light fitting in my shower. I had room service which and the food was tasty, prompt and reasonably priced. I had originally intended to stay 2 nights, however after night one I checked out and stayed at the DoubleTree Hilton (A lot further out of the city and away from the airport) for about two thirds of the cost of the Holiday Inn for a much more luxurious comfortable stay. So management, many thanks to your pleasant staff they made the stay bearable, but your accommodation is in desperate need of freshening up (I only stayed in a basic room so I cant comment on the more expensive suites)

    I`ll be fair on my part, i love staying at all holiday in because of its legacy, however the floor i was staying in was non smoking but somehow the smoke was coming to our room through the ventilation. Not paranoid but that`s the only thing i dislike on my stay to this hotel. Everything else, is exactly perfect.
