A very good hotel

I thought the Southern Sun was an excellent hotel, one of the best I've stayed in. Good service, large rooms and good food.

The only downside was the location, being quite distant from the aiport.

A well-run business-oriented hotel

I stayed here for one night preparatory to returning to the U.S. after a 2-wk safari in the TZ game parks.

The hotel served that purpose very well, plus giving me a day to explore Dar. It is not a tourist hotel, with a much more business-oriented clientele, but that was fine. Good service, good food, opportunity to check email in the business center.

All the things one needs to do in preparation for returning home.

Southern Sun Dar review

Fine for a night's stay although I had to chase them to get the time for my airport transfer in the morning, and then when I went down in the morning no one seemed to have any knowledge of my transfer being pre-paid.

When I produced a voucher someone from Kersey's took me but no one seemed to have a record of me.

Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

good for a turnaround night. Staff extremely reliable.

I left my camera - an old digital one - in the safe, last visit, and they found it for me, and I was able to get it back. Fabulous.

Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

We only stayed there one night. We arrived in the late afternoon and left really early in the morning. The rooms were clean although noise from the garden bar below could be heard late into the night.

We had to leave around 5 AM and the hotel took the time to find out what we wanted the night before and provided us with box breakfast to our order without any problem.

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.

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.
