    Meets your basic needs

    The Best Western Plus seems to be lacking the “plus”. With big rooms and comfy beds it meets your basic needs, but that’s about it. Everything else is adequate, but just. The one upside is that it’s located next to fast food so you’re not held captive to its sole uninspired eating option.

    I just don't like this property rather I LOVE everything about this property. It was very clean, my room was big and the bed was very comfortable. It is very accessible to everything and this place is very safe and homey..At first, I wasn't sure about this hotel as I've never been in any Best Western hotel. However, if I have to do it again and visit Dar Es Salaam, this will be my go to place.. The staffs are professional and helpful as always... they never disappoint me...

    The location is great and the price is good, especially since you actually do not have an ocean view. It is priced well for its location and views.
