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.

Southern Sun Dar review

Very nice hotel, very short stay for one nite, arriving late and leaving early the next morning.

Hotel services were excellent and a good restaurant. When we could not shop on our final day due to terrorist concerns in shopping area, the hotel was so gracious in welcoming us back and allowing us to hang out till our flight departed for Amsterdam.

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

Our first night was spent at Southern Sun.

First impressions were how friendly and helpful the Tanzanian people are.

Sadly a rain shower stopped a quick dip in the pool.

Southern Sun Dar review

As we were only spending one night in Dar the Southere Sun was more than adequate.

It did take a long time to reach the hotel due to road works so a hotel closer to the airport would be better if the traffic problems continue

Good hotel for overnight stay

We used this hotel at the start of our trip to Tanzania as the flight times were such that there was the possibility of missing our connection at Dar to the first camp.

It proved to be a good idea as it allowed us a nights rest before starting the safari element of the trip. The hotel was clean, food was reasonable and it fitted the bill perfectly for a one night stay.

The only real issue was the time taken to get from Dar es Salaam International airport to the hotel as the traffic was truly awful, but you can't blame the hotel for that.
