Nice Hotel Before Safari

Hotel has character for a business type hotel.

Great for pre or post safari stay. Clean, quiet room. Helpful staff and nice breakfast.

Welcome travel break !

Does exactly what it says on the tin - a good overnight hotel with a nice restaurant which allows you to recuperate after tiring air travel

Southern Sun Dar review

It was a good stopover in Dar Es Salaam.

Nothing special, but it was clean and friendly and was perfectly OK for an overnight stay.

Comfortable room before our safari

The Southern Sun Dar was in a great location and provided a nice room before our safari.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms well-air conditioned. The food at the restaurant was very good.

Southern Sun Dar review

Whilst this is not an "excellent" hotel in terms of high standards of facilities, it is "excellent" in doing the job precisely it needed to for us, namely a one-night stop over in Dar to rest after the long flights and before an early start the next day for the start of the safari adventures.

The airport transfers were seamless which is the main thing, room clean and food decent. They even left us a bottle of sparkling wine for our honeymoon. Definitely recommended for a one-night stop.

Well located, friendly and comfortable

We had a warm welcome and staff were very friendly.

Comfortable rooms, although the corridor on our floor had a slight damp smell

Comfortable and convenient

Comfortable room with pleasant view towards the swimming pool (which we used for a refreshing swim!).

Enjoyed both our dinner and the buffet breakfast.

Very suitable overnight hotel

A sensible overnight hotel - rooms a good size and quiet and comfortable - we used the pool which was nice and dinner and breakfast were good.

About 30 minutes to the airport (provided you are not at rush hour heading into Dar)

Very nice hotel, very helpful staff

We didn't spend much time at Southern Sun, but we had a nice room service dinner, got a good night's sleep, had a very nice breakfast, ordered a taxi to the airport.

The room was clean, roomy enough, and we had a lovely view of the botanical gardens.

Southern Sun Dar review

The Reception personnel were helpful and efficient.

We got our bags delivered to the room quickly. They were satisfied with the tips we gave them. And all that can be said for the service the next morning. The breakfast was good.
