Southern Sun Dar review

It is a shame there are no good hotels closer to the airport. However once we fought our way through the traffic to reach it the Holiday Inn was excellent for an overnight stop.

Room was spacious and comfortable, shower excellent, food very good (and reasonably priced) and staff friendly and helpful. Very helpful to have the transfer company in the hotel to arrange pick up for the next morning.

Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Southern Sun Dar review

We arrived in Dar domestic airport at rush hour after a delay in our flights from Zanzibar. A 20 min journey into the city took over an hour and half. If there is a suitable hotel nearer the airport which avoids the Mandela/Nyrere road junction it should be considered for transit passengers.

The actual hotel was fine. But for some reason they initially insisted that there were no inter connecting rooms and we could not be put in rooms next to one another. But after several minutes the manager overhead my protests and sorted it out.

Dar Southern Sun

This was our first exposure to Tanzania after 2.5 days travelling. The staff was friendly, the driver was knowledgeble. The rooms were well put together and dinner was very good. We had a very relaxing time after travelling so long.

The check-in and check-out procedures were smooth.

Superb Prawn Curry

A good secure end to the trip which allowed us to unwind over a lovely meak before the early morning checkout and we got to breakfast at 5am expecting little but were met with a full buffet and eggs cooked to order.

Southern Sun Hotel

A necessary hotel to sleep at so as to catch the early morning flight home. Its location was closer to the airport than the last hotel we stayed at in Dar.

However you arrive late afternoon, eat, sleep and leave early so it is impossible to comment really

Southern Sun Dar review

Needed for our flight times but rather modest hotel! It's a pity there isn't something near the airport!

Southern Sun Dar review

Some difficulty with on-line check-in, locating where and how to do it in the hotel.

Eventually we went to Kearsley's office on the mezzanine level (not the hotel desk who looked at us blankly).
