Southern Sun Dar - Transfer Hotel

As this was a transfer solution - arriving late from overseas and needed one night before the domestic flight early next morning, nothing special to mention, We have used this hotel before and meet and greet is very good, rooms are spacious and breakfast gives you what you need before the next step. Arriving late Sunday was fine as there was very little traffic, other times traffic from airport to downtown Dar can be congested - hopefully better when the fly over bridge from the harbour is completed.

Southern Sun Dar review

As you know, we stayed at this hotel for just one night as a stopover. We bought dinner which was perfectly satisfactory but not a gourmet experience – which was not sought anyway.

We would be happy to recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a similar facility/service.

Southern Sun Dar review

we had only one night there and arrived quite late - the restaurant was closed already. We can't tell you much about it.

Short stay.

Only stayed at the hotel for about 9 hours to while away some time before we had to catch the plane back to Nairobi.

Hotel comfortable and the meal we had was both delicious and very inexpensive.

Exceeded expectations

Nice quiet, comfortable room overlooking the gardens. Front desk were very efficient and helpful; assisting when my luggage had been left in Jo’burg.

I enjoyed dinner in the restaurant, where service was also extremely good. An extensive breakfast buffet is served from 4am; wide choice of bread, rolls, pastries, jams, meats, cheese, and eggs cooked to order.

Would definitely stay again.

Southern Sun Dar review

We were met by Kearsleys as arranged and the transfer time was reasonable as it was late at night. It seemed to take a while to confirm our room number on arrival but when we were shown there it was adequate. Breakfast was reasonable.

On return from Ruaha we spent a few hours again at the hotel. The food in the restaurant was excellent, along with the service. It made much more of an impression after being in the bush for 8 nights!

Comfortable Hotel

We stayed at the Southern Sun before and after our safari.

The room was comfortable and we were particularly grateful that they allowed us to keep the room until our 8pm journey to the airport.

Breakfast was good, including bacon, sausage and eggs. We also had a couple of meals in the restaurant, which were also fine.

The hotel is next to the Botanical Gardens, which we thought would be good, but the gardens were a huge disappointment - a few interesting trees, but very little else.

More than a crash-pad

We used Southern Sun Dar more as a crash-pad to ease our 04-00 departure from Dar airport.

Facilities are as one would expect from any Western hotel.......bath, mini-bar, hairdryer, restaurant, TV etc. All were as one would expect. The staff were also helpful in letting us sort out pick-up times, print off boarding passes etc..
