    Tasty Indian food, rooftop bar, spacious room
    We stayed here our first 2 nights in Tanzania. The bar and restaurant were a great convenience for our first night, when many neighborhood restaurants were closed, and we were feeling too lazy to venture out too far. The rooftop bar has a great view of the city and has hookah. The Indian food at the restaurant was tasty. The room was spacious, but dark and in need of upgrades and repairs - broken bathroom doorknob, old tiles, etc. Hotel Sapphire is overpriced for the quality of accommodation, but I would consider staying here again for the convenience of the bar and restaurant.

    Good way to start the trip”
    The staff were quite personable, down to earth, rather than just "yes sir, thank-you sir" and I liked this. Great locationclose to ATM's cash exchange and plenty of shops. I rarely saw a westerner.
    Great. Staff were very helpful and I liked the fact that I was able to experience a bit of the local life, rather than just be in a western haven in the middle of an African city. The food had western options but also many local ones and the staff were willing to assist, even to act as a kind of bodyguard to collect Cash at an exchange place nearby and it wasn't all about getting more tips.

    Location, staff, comfort
    The hotel is located in a great part of town full of small shops, restaurants, and street vendors. We enjoyed exploring this neighborhood during the day. We also took longer walks, but at least in the directions we walked,things were not as interesting. The restaurant in the hotel served delicious dinners, and the complimentary breakfast was excellent. The staff was kind and helpful whenever we had questions. We would stay here again if we return to Dar Es Salaam.

    Nice rooms, rooftop bar, excellent service
    Nice clean rooms that are basic but well appointed with everything working well. I originally booked for one night, but the hotel accommodated me for another night at the last minute and at the same Agoda rate. They responded fast to internet inquiries in-country about extending stay and booking airport shuttle, which was $5 cheaper than the taxi rate. Very nice and helpful staff with good English. Rooftop bar has great view. Restaurant is decent and convenient, with good room service. Good and fast wifi service. Most other guests were Indian businessmen and women.

    I stayed just for one night on my way to Arusha. The hotel is located in an area where the Indian community is. My room was okay and the hotel staff were helpful. They gave me useful information as I didn't plan anything before I arrived. I didn't like the restaurant though. I ordered chicken biryani, and didn't like it.

    Very disappointing hotel ”
    Staff and the internet
    Not great. The hotel ratings offered were ridiculously high for a very run down city hotel in need of total refurbishment. Too many damp spots and cracks in the rooms and bathrooms and the place gave you a feeling that the owner did not care enough. Needs new bathrooms, new sheets, new towels, total repaint and a better restaurant.

    large clen rooms
    stayed there twice within a week in 2 different rooms. Both of them were very big and clean. They were more appartments with cooking area and fridge. Best value for money I ever had for a room. Internet in the 1st room wasn't very good, but the 2nd room was good. Lovely terasse bar where you can have a drink and watch the sunset. The staff was very helpful and friendly - I personally just didn't like the food in both restaurants.

    Good hotel but only arrived late at night and left early in the morning. Had arranged to be met on arrival at the airport and this was done. Next morning when we tried to pay by credit card, as agreed on our arrival the night before, it was not possible as accounting staff were not there. Staff were very friendly.
