Southern Sun Review

We had a very friendly and professional greeting on arrival as well as honeymoon congratulations and sparking wine from the management which was very much appreciated.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and the A/C was welcomed! The bar area and restaurant provided us with drinks and a very reasonably priced evening meal.

A great place for the overnight stay and only 15mins from the airport which was good for the early start for the journey home.

Very good choice for a one night stay in Dar Es Salaam.

Helpful staff (e.g. checking in online and printing boarding passes).

Comfortable rooms and good food

Comfortable city hotel

Efficient, friendly, very clean, good food. Well equipped room if a little 'corporate' in feel but just what we needed for a overnight before travelling back to the UK.

Not too far from airport which was good as we were leaving early in the morning.

Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

Only stayed one night as we arrived from Europe late in the evening and had a morning flight to Selous. For this it was perfect.

Unable to comment on food, activities and facilities as we did not take advantage of any of this.

Southern Sun - back to civilization

Very good hotel, absolutely no problems. Staff were helpful and we had all the facilities we needed.

We had no time to do anything in Dar, so it was merely a night stopover, and it provided everything we needed.

As we only spent a few hours sleeping at the hotel, I'm not able to give a more thorough review
