Good hotel

One can not require more just for one night.

At reception, we asked for a Dar city Map , and unfortunately they could not find any.

One night in Southern Sun hotel

We spent only the last night on this hotel before our next early morning flight. We don't have comments on it as we only had dinner in the hotel and left the next morning.

We would have preferred to spend this last night in another hotel because this one was very expensive, and that would have reduced the price a little. But that was our mistake because we did not comment on this last night, as we were concentrated in the safari and Mafia Island planning.

Service and food rating was based only for restaurant staff. Front of the house hotel staff were very gracious.

Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

The staff were very helpful. The location is not especially good as there did not appear to be anything locally to walk to in the day time, with the location better suited for business people. The room was very average, I would imagine it was more then suitable for a business person.

With it being located so close to the airport I can well understand why it is a reaonsable option for a last night stay before returning home the next day. Mind you with so little to see or do locally the last day can drag some what, especially as we got there at midday. The lunch and dinner menu in the restaurant did not seem expecially varied with the Lunch we had being of average quality. The morning buffet was very good in terms of variety.

I am going to give it an "Average", although for Tanzania it may be worth of a "Good" but I do not have the knowledge of other hotels to make a fair comparison for the price.
