The Slipway: Our full report
For a good-value Dar Hotel, much smaller than many and near restaurants and a good craft market, the rooms at The Slipway are well worth considering.
This is a new complex of restaurants, shops and galleries beside the ocean. It has a very friendly, mixed air and is perhaps unique in attracting not only visitors to dar, but also local Tanzanians and local expatriates. It's a fun, cosmopolitan place!
We haven't yet had the chance to visit but have been told that The Slipway has 39 rooms and 10 studio apartments. All rooms have free internet access, satellite TV, air-conditioning, complimentary coffee/tea, and a small fridge and mini-bar.
If you want to spend the evening here, but prefer the comforts of a larger hotel, then take a taxi here and ask the driver to wait for you, and drive you back at the end of the evening. The cost of this won't add up to much more than US$30 in total!
