It was very nice compared to most African lodging options. Coming from America, but living in Tanzania for a year and a half, regardless of where you go the service will not quite be what it is in Western culture. With that said it was still very nice and conveniently located near the bus station, Milimani City (Mall), and not too far from the airport. The room was nice and seemed clean. The breakfast bar, with weird food options, was really good. Did not try the room service so I cannot comment on that.
Very handy for bus station”
Nice big room. Near bus station. Nice view.
It was a nice big room with sofa and desk, everything you need. I was put on the eleventh floor, because they said the wifi was better there. Wifi was ok. You can easily walk from the hotel to the bus station. The only thing that worried me a bit was directions about how to get down if the lift wasn't working, which I didn't understand. I did find some stairs but they were boarded up.

Short and sweet!”
Cleanliness and superb service
Mrs. Ahmed (customer relations) was the sweetest and most helpful lady in the world. Everyone went out of their way to help me.
Very convenient and comfortable stay”
Breakfast buffet, rooftop pool, value for money
My stay was excellent. The staff are very helpful. It was very restful to have a pool to relax by. Only downside is that I found the wifi is not free.
Comfortable and convenient”
Attentive staff, near bus station, rooftop pool
Complained about several small cockroaches in the bathroom. Otherwise, very good. The apartment was big and contained a microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle but no cutlery or crockery!
Built for Convention and Exhibitions”
There are always rooms available!
The Blue Pearl is built for conventions and exhibitions so you can imagine that their staff are not the friendliest. The beds consists of spring mattresses which feel like they have taken more load than necessary. I do not have a good night's rest when I sleep at the Blue Pearl.
The facilities work as they should although the hot water can run a little lukewarm in the mornings due to heavy usage.
Air-conditioning is superb and can freeze you at the lowest setting. You get a little pantry which would qualify the room as a suite in other hotels.
The hotel is located quite far out of town. If you have daily business in the city centre, be prepared for a long ride to town and back again.
The Blue Pearl is my backup hotel when my first choice hotels are fully booked.
All in all though, it represents very good value for money.
Large rooms, but don't take your dinner here.”
Very large rooms, perfect beds, nice view as we stayed on 12th floor.
Big hotel probably specialized in conference groups. When we arrived we didn’t receive one single smile or a simple “Welcome”. Just “who are your travelling with?” . The restaurant served tasteless food but the service there was good. Overall a good, but completely soul less hotel. OK for a night or so, but try to avoid eating there.
Adequate and clean but tired”
Convenient for the Bus Station
Staff were not overly enthusiastic
Hotel is miles away from Dar centre
Swimming pool small and overcrowded, used by non-residents.
