Southern Sun Dar review

The room was dark, damp and smelled musty. The bed felt damp and cold. I have asthma and I coughed constantly. The carpet was dirty.

I definitely would not recommend this hotel.It was a bad start to our holiday.

Arrival overnight stop

We stayed at Southern Sun for our first night in Tanzania. We arrived at 10PM and left the next morning at 6.30AM so we did not had time to really look around.

We had a light dinner on the terrace. The food was fine but nothing special.

Good and spacious hotel with comfortable rooms.

Good location, clean hotel, friendly staff

Great location; not far from the sea as well as the museum and other touristy places to check out.

The staff were extremely amicable and our room and the venue quite clean.

Average food at the restaurant, not exactly traditional if that is what you're looking for.

Beautiful hotel

Because of late flight we were here for only a couple of hours, the wake up call we asked for didn't happen

Southern Sun Dar review

After the long trip from the western US to Dar, this was a terrific place to grab a nice meal, a little looking around, and a nice rest before setting out.

The highlight is certainly the adjacent botanical garden, and we were lucky enough to get a tour from the groundskeeper who explained everything we were seeing and even picked a couple little fruits for us.

While we weren't there long enough to take in much of the city, it was just a short walk to the water to watch the sun go down.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great.

Nice hotel, pleasant room, slow service.

On arriving at Dar es Salaam we were collected by our driver and taken to the hotel. Unfortunately we arrived at the start of the afternoon rush hour so our journey to the hotel took almost an hour although it was only a short distance. The location of the hotel would be good if arriving outside rush hour times.

Once checked in we went for a snack and a drink but the service was very slow. At dinner the service was better but quite a limited menu.

Our room was comfortable and had air-conditioning.

We left early for the airport after a small breakfast.
