        Rainbow hotel provides the essentials for a comfortable and safe night stay. The staff showed kindness to me, including packing my breakfast for an early check out, so I am very pleased with the hospitality for the price.

        Friendly, clean, but basic hotel”

        Amazingly helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, and good food

        The staff was amazingly helpful and friendly, the bed was comfortable, the AC worked well, the room was well insulated from street noise if you closed the window, and the restaurant was tasty and affordable, especially the Indian menu. I had some trouble with the electricity in my room (there was a very finicky card reader to turn it on; after the 2nd time I had to ask for help they gave me a second room key so that I'd never have to touch it again), I had only one warm shower in the 6 days I was there, and the single elevator was very slow, but I can forgive those things in light of all of the positives. Recommended!

        not very good. location is center but in a very poor neighborhood. I guess all Dar Es Salaam hotel are like this but if its a good hotel you will spend time in hotel without going out. food is very poor and room condition is very basic.

        easy and uncomplicated”

        very close to ferry--walkable even with luggage, very clean, varied menu and good food

        This urban high rise hotel is THE choice is you are taking the ferry to Zanzibar. Friendly and welcoming, very clean and well-maintained, the hotel caters to a broad clientele, from business to tourist, and from all over the world. The staff's friendliness definitely crossed cultures, as did the restaurant's choice of cuisine. Everything in the room worked.The bed was comfortable and had a choice of 4 pillows. My only criticism is that the standard double room (I saw that there were larger double rooms) was a single room in which the double bed took up so much space (and was jammed up against the wall) that there was not really enough room to open two suitcases. Would recommend the larger size double room if offered a choice.

        Friendly staff but shabby room.”

        It was centrally located and easy to get to from the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful even though I arrived very late at night. The room was comfortable but a bit on the shabby side.

        I was only there for a night but it was a pleasant stay despite the fact that some items in my rooms were broken and needed fixing.
