"The Slipway review"
Also gave us a packed breakfast to take away, due to our early start." See all these reviews: 4n in Tanzania
"Choose another hotel"
The 'executive' room was tired; a carbon monoxide or smoke alarm was taped to the ceiling. We could not be accommodated in the restaurant due to a party.
It took 2 hours to get to the hotel through choking traffic." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania
"Comfortable but basic accommodation"
The evening food was tasty and there was a great breakfast selection. However, out room was quite rudimentary with clean and basic shower and washing facilities.
We'd happily recommend The Slipway as a stopover before safari, but perhaps choose somewhere more luxurious if staying longer in Dar?" See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 6n in Zanzibar
Room was fairly basic but clean. Noisy air conditioning unit.
Pool area was nice and we enjoyed a beer overlooking the ocean as the sun went down.
Reasonable meal in the The Waterfront restaurant.
In general the photos on their website make it look more attractive than it actually is." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania

"The Slipway review"
"One night stopover at the Slipway"
The only slight downside was that the traffic to and from the airport was really bad, meaning it took at least 90 minutes both ways and we had an early start (8am pick-up) the next morning to ensure we got to the airport.
Altogether, very happy though." See all these reviews: 5n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Lovely Hotel and nice location"
"Perfect 1 night stay at the Slipway"
"Perfect First Hotel"
Our room was fine, just what we needed. Staff friendly and helpful. Arabic design of buildings really appealed and lovely open air eating area and bar. Good feeling to it as so open plan and part of the community. Not some impersonal big name branded hotel! Didn't feel like we were in hot, busy Dar, but instead had a good feeling of being rather an oasis. Very friendly feel to it. Also had a sense of history to the hotel, and we liked that old world charm. A great place to arrive at from the plane and to look out to sea, and breathe a sign of relief - we have arrived!"
