Short night at Serena Hotel Dar

Comfortable rooms in this rather large hotel - spent too little time there to give a full review!

Comfortable night in Serena Hotel Dar

Traffic is bad so took an hour to reach but a comfortable oasis on arrival.

Staff were very supportive about our lost ( fortunately only delayed ) baggage.

Serena Hotel Dar review

Told us to put luggage for storage (whilst on safari) outside our room at 6.30 pm, it was still outside our room at 5.30 am next day.

We put out a card for breakfast in our room by 10.30 pm and at 5.20 am next day when we were getting up to have our breakfast the card was still hanging on the door.

Good overnight stay at the Dar Serena

We stayed at the Dar Serena hotel not the Royal Palm.

We had a very large and comfortable room, more than adequate for an overnight stay.

We opted for breakfast in our room due to an early pick-up of 6.30am. Room service is not charged for breakfasts ordered before 6am.

One night in Dar es Salaam

Comfortable room for a one-night stopover.

Staff very friendly with good service.

Only had about 12 hours at the hotel so difficult to comment on much more

A very short stay

We arrived late at night after long flights from the US via Amsterdam and were happy to have a lovely hotel room waiting for us.

The room certainly met our expectations, and after a quick shower we fell asleep without dining. We enjoyed the included breakfast buffet and left the hotel by 7:30 a.m. so had no time to utilize its facilities. We wished that there had been a comparable hotel nearer the airport, but apparently this is the best option even for a short stay.

Now called Serena Dar es Salaam

We were only passing through. Conveniently located, with a lot of security, comfortable rooms and good food.

Serena Hotel (was Royal Palm)

Good location as not too far from airport. Purports to be a 4/5 star hotel BUT In the room neither the kettle or TV worked.

We ordered room service breakfast before an early start to the airport) and it was late arriving.
