But this was constantly interrupted by loud, noisy and boisterous staff in the corridors cleaning other rooms on the floor we were on. We found this really annoying.

Cons: 1. The bath we had had no hot water during our stay, only the shower 2. The security guards constantly harass guests of color asking them whether they are guests at the hotel and which room number they are in, while others roam freely at the pool etc. We would get asked at least 5 times a day! Unacceptable! 3. The rooms that don't face the sea face à big solar generator and are unpleasant 4. The female réceptionist was moody but the gentleman was amazing

Pros: Best Western Coral Beach Hotel - still a little paradise in Dar es Salaam with the perfect location in northern Dar. Breakfast offers a rich variety of food and beverages.
Cons: The quality is of high standard, there is nothing negative to be mentioned.
7,1 Good
Pros: Breakfast was not good at all, Saturday and Sunday it is supposed to be till 11 am. We were down for breakfast at 10.20 am Sunday and found all the serving bowls empty, no beans, sausages etc. In the cooler where the yogurts and cheese is kept there were only three pcs of cheese with no serving tongs, no butter....
Cons: Our rooms AC was working when we checked in and stopped cooling in the evening and we reported the matter before leaving to go out. When we came back very late at night we were requested to move into another room. Upon entering our existing room we found the AC was working and cooling well so we decided to stay in the same room. Next night the AC stopped working and one of the ceiling lights started flicking even when switched off. We had to turn off the main switch so that we could sleep. To make matters worst there was maintenance going on in the next room starting early morning with a lot of banging. Lastly when we checked in to our room the guys were fiddling with the safe for almost 20 minutes. They got the safe working but when we wanted to check out the safe would not open and we had to call the reception to get it opened.

9,2 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are huge and comfortable, with a spacious patio and a hammock. The beds are enormous and very comfortable. There are only 10 rooms so even when the hotel is full it is quiet and tranquil. The location is gorgeous. Make sure you take the cliff walk and then walk to the adjoining beach at low tide. It's spectacular. The food was tasty, although a bit pricey. Breakfast is a buffet with a varied selection, especially considering the size of the hotel. Very relaxing, gorgeous place. I love it here.
Cons: There were some issues with our food orders, but the manager was very apologetic and worked to solve the problems. Make sure you order food quite a bit in advance and double-check the orders and time. Cocktails are very expensive.

7,5 Good
Pros: Beautiful location. Breakfast had many choices.
Cons: The wiFi service is limited and not easy assessable at both locations provided by the hotel. The check out process was confusing due to booking online with a credit card and future explanation of staff that the payment must be made at checkout. No wifi service at check out point to follow the accuracy of information, and no contact with the manager at that time. The check out took up to forty minutes which delayed other plans that our family scheduled for the day.

Cons: Not much, it was good overall.
6,3 Good
Pros: The hotel has a nice courtyard.
Cons: This isn't really a hotel but more like an apartment square. The room I stayed was big, but very poorly utilized. The bedroom is looking on the street, which means its quite loud at night. The pool looks nice on pictures and the Wi-Fi is horrendous - If you have to work it is really annoying.

Pros: Breakfast and coffee was good. Room size was good.

A stay at Tanzanite Executive Suites places you in the heart of Dar es Salaam, within a 10-minute walk of Askari Monument and St Joseph's Cathedral. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, express check-in, and express check-out. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Good value for money.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The staff are very professional and always willing to be of assistance
Cons: The location was difficult to find on arrival.
6,3 Good
Pros: The room was quite big, the bed was comfy, interior design was modern, and there was a lot of light inside unlike many other African hotels. Staff was helpful with opening entrance doors and handling our luggage. Room has some basic tableware (but no wine glasses; you have to ask for them) and even a toaster. There is a basic fitness at the hotel roof.
Cons: The worst thing no one yet commented on is a mosque next to the hotel. Whichever time you set with your alarm, you will definitely wake up at 5am because of extremely loud call to prayer. No sound proof at all. Not sure why this was not yet pointed out, because this is something what is impossible to ignore. Apart from that: The wifi was spotty and unavailable sometimes. The breakfast was far from "very good", as written in "booking": it was very basic with very small alterations each day. You are still hungry after the breakfast. Also, there are some road signs next to the hotel, which are interpreted by many Uber drivers that they can't enter so you will always have problems with having a car next to the hotel entrance when you call it, and also you will have to walk 100m from the nearest crossroads if you are arriving. Not a big deal unless you have heavy luggage. The fitness is pretty funny. It does not have treadmills but have dumbbells for Arnold Schwarzenegger - I wonder who is going to use 50kg ones. Finally, the air conditioner is installed very inconvenient, it blows directly to the bed and very powerful in the weakest mode. Even with all adjustments of airflow and temperature set to 25C, it is too cold to sleep. Without the aircon it is too hot. The only option is to switch it on and off constantly. In a perfect world, the aircon would have been installed in another part of the room which has enough space for better installation.

It is a 15 minute cab ride to the trendy part of the city with great bars...there is an Asian restaurant very close that had amazing food (no drinks as it is in Muslim section of the city). The staff is very friendly...airport is 25 mins away
Cons: The call to prayer was much louder than anywhere in the Arab world!

Pros: I liked the staff. Reinfrida and colleagues at the front desk were super helpful and cheerful. They made my stay very comfortable. The hotel also gave me a room upgrade as was indicated in my booking. Some hotels simply refuse to do so (in the pretext of unavailability or something else).
Cons: The breakfast choices can be limiting. Also, the location for me is 50/50. Great views of the harbour (as the name suggests of course). However, it is in a busy building that can be off putting and difficult to navigate (without a porter). I also ordered for a meal from the 24 hr Grand Central Restaurant. Waited for an hour and ten minutes then called, only to be told my meal is not available :(
8,8 Excellent
Pros: I didn’t like the behavior of the receptionist who was on duty at 0700hrs when I was checking out he wanted to make me pay extra 15dolas for bed levy per night 3dolas by 5 .i refused and told him off that he wanted to steal from me.
Cons: The facility is good together with the staff

7,1 Good
Pros: The staff were friendly, time spent on checking in was very fast and the meals were just fine. The location of the resort was very ideal - for some R&R, it was perfect.
Cons: The room I was checked into had that 'hasn't been aired in a while' smell. I wish it was airy seeing as the ocean view was so good - it would have made the room experience better. To add on to the room dissatisfaction, the bathroom could have used a good scrubbing - it was evidently very grimy. When I turned on the tap, dirty brown water came out!!! And for about a minute...:(

2,0 Mediocre
Pros: Manager paid for our taxi to airport to try to make ammends for the broken air-con in room, said the normal rate is $50, when we knew the local rate is $25-30 for that journey.
Cons: Thought we would treat ourselves on last night of holiday and have a nice swimming pool to use on our last morning.. Hotel is located miles away and not in the location my maps.me app said it was- 8km more southerly than expected- got lost on a dirt track for 1 hour looking for it. Arrived exhausted- proceeded to room- air conditioning stuck on 29degreee setting- warming up the room as we tried to sleep- result, we felt awful in the morning without a good nights rest. Swimming pool was out of order-staff had put chemicals into it the night before even though they knew we were coming. No kettle in room. No lifts to third floor- bags had to be dragged upstairs. Only one or two other rooms in this hotel were occupied during our stay- and they couldnt have checked that the air-con was working in our room. Loads of staff walking around /watching loud soap operas on TV in breakfast area & looking for ways to earn tips from us- but still all these problems. Wifi rationed to 1mb with a note informing us that this 1mb is worth $5, had to repeatedly ask for more codes to get basic emails. $50 fare to airport when we knew it was only $30 Blood stains on bed sheets.

Pros: The clean beach, the staff was really friendly. No staff was bad really. Nice location. Nice food. Asian and local food was in order, drinks. Really good. The rooms and AC were all great, with WiFi too

Pros: Clean room
Cons: Good food
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The room was excellent: spacious, comfortable and with excellent facilities such as USB charging, Bluetooth audio and HDMI input. A doorbell on the room is a nice touch. Staff were helpful and attentive. Food was excellent, and the Bar was great with a good atmosphere. Live pianist at Breakfast.
Cons: Niggles: A series of brief powercuts (none more than 3 minutes - welcome to Dar es Salaam!) seemed to break my TV - after flipping through a couple of channels it would just freeze - no picture, just the menu, and even the power on/off button wouldn't respond. The only way to recover was to power off the "master switch" (conveniently and annoyingly located next to the bathroom lightswitch) which would reset it. Fortunately, an HDMI jack is provided on the desk, so I was able to play some entertainment from my laptop. The master switch for the whole room being in the same bank of switches as the light switches took a little bit of getting used to. The room had two air conditioners, with separate control panels: remember to set these to the same temperature or (if in Auto) they will fight each other noisily, as one of my colleagues found. I set mine both identically and on auto, and they were quiet and the temperature was very consistent. Laundry service ringing the doorbell at 0850h on Saturday morning after a night out was probably not the best timing, although also my fault for failing to display the "Do not Disturb" on my door handle. At breakfast there is a live piano player, who is pretty good, although the piano has been heavily muted in an effort to control the volume level, and it sounds a little dead. I felt the piano would have been a lot more appropriate in the evening than at breakfast - whilst it's pleasant, and not especially loud, it can be a little intrusive if dining with colleagues : at the far end of the room, it was a lovely background to breakfast, so choose your seat wisely!
5,0 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was great, and the cooks are owe some.
Cons: The person on the counter dint honor my ocean view booking request. At first he gave me a room that wasn't fully attended to, house keeping was still in progress!! At some point the house keeper made her way in the room without my notice. i complained and got another room still not facing the ocean. I woke up at 4 to escort my colleague who had an early flight, the lady at the reception checked out my room without my notice. i went back to the room and wasted another hour trying to sort our another check in and they messed up my AC.. i felt wasted as i did not enjoy my sleep after that. The lady actually went into hiding and i was rechecked by a gentleman. Your AC technician was very slow and not professional. had to call him twice to fix the AC.

Pros: The hotel is very close to the airport and for the low rate we didn’t expect more. It was ideal for us since we only needed to be there overnight to catch the next day a morning flight. We wouldn’t stay there for more than one night. It was very convenient that The hotel arranged our taxi to pick us up at the airport and drop us off.

Pros: Great location and since I got in very late they let me stay an extra hour the next day since I didn't need to be at the airport that early, Picked up at the airport with namecard clear which i appreciated late at night
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was exactly what we needed- a place to sleep near the airport before going there at midnight. We got off the ferry from Zanzibar, and had 12 hours to kill. The hotel cost about $50 for the four of us, and was directly across from the airport. We could have walked, but the neighborhood is a little unnerving for our first time to Africa. It was also midnight, so the $5 charge for a ride was very much worth it. We checked in and went to the restaurant to eat dinner around 4pm before trying to sleep a few hours. The food might be the best, most authentic Tanzanian food we had in our two weeks there. I ordered an avocado salad (it was enough for 4 people). I also had wraps, which were pretty good- I was surprised that there was ground beef in it, but it was well-seasoned and well-cooked. My wife had a very spicy chicken with ugali, one child had lemon chicken with rice, and another had tomato soup. We ate it all, and it was delicious. Kudos to the cook. Checkout was easy, and the driver was ready to go. Of note, the airport does not let passengers go inside until about 2 hours before the flight, so it is not worth going early.
Cons: Everything was really pretty good. One thing was the toilet had trouble flushing, but it worked fine after a few tries. The door was also a little thin, so as other guests slammed their doors to leave, it was loud. And there was a train right outside, so that was loud too.
