Pros: Staff were friendly, bed was comfy.
Cons: WIFI connection was bad, breakfast menu not elaborate.
Mediocre 3.3
Pros: Their breakfast is a joke! Out of words to describe this place!
Cons: 1.Breakfast was terrible! If you ever wanna try bony chicken nuggets, undercooked buns and spoilt fruits for breakfast, you're most welcome to lodge at Greenlight Hotel! 2. They threw us out of the room at exactly 10 a.m and made us wait for our ride outside with our luggage. That was by far the most humiliating experience I've ever had in a hotel! Couldn't even allow us late check out by a few minutes! Pathetic! 3. Would you ever go back to a hotel that would deny you an iron?! This place is something else!
Excellent 8.3
Pros: We were warmly received. The manager welcomed us at the airport and made sure our stay was comfortable. The property is located only a few Kilometers from the airport making it easy to come in and go considering the busy traffic in Dar-es-salaam.

Good 7.5
Pros: Cleanliness. Nice building, good bed. Very attentive staff.
Cons: Located in a very, very poor neighborhood, stroll definitively not recommended. Noisy surroundings: plane, mosque, industries. Poor breakfast, poor kitchen in general.
Good 7.5
Pros: It was very close to the airport, and had a free shuttle taxi and a free breakfast.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Convenient location 5-10 minutes from the airport. It felt safe and it was really clean. The air condition was working perfectly. We had two meals and there were both nicely prepared. There is nothing to do around but we only used the hotel for our flight transit. The staff was attentive. Special thanks to Agnes and Ramadan.
Good 7.9
Pros: Great location for airport stop overs. I didn't actually stay the night but used this as a rest stop during an 8 hour lay over. Lovely staff, super great free shuttle, decent food in the small restaurant.
Cons: The noise of planes flying over was very loud. I imagine if sleeping here you would need earplugs!
Good 6.0
Pros: Transfer from and to airport.
Cons: They use winter blanket in the room without any thin sheet which is very hot and uncomfortable during the night. The hotel is close to the airport so it can be loud. There is no mosquito net.
Good 7.9
Pros: The front desk was very very accomodating and apologetic for whatever was not going according to plan and chastised staff to keep it down when I complained. The price was great at $35 for the night and the free shuttle was perfect cos the airport taxis will charge you an arm and leg even though it is just 3km away from the airport.
Cons: I stayed in Room 205. The toilet was literally in the shower area. I also did not like that you could very clearly hear anything happening in the courtyard and the staff/workers are sometimes quite loud. Lastly unfortunately during my stay the TV was not functioning. They also did not have wash cloths which I found odd.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Breakfast was watermelon, omelette, chapati, sausage, bread butter & jam and tea or (instant) coffee Staff were very helpful and emailed us in advance offering to arrange a pick-up from the airport Location is just 100m from the airport peripheral fence although around the other side from the main entrance to the hotel (5 min by car)
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Good service by reception staff and ideal lay over spot. Very clean.
Cons: The wifi was poor during our stay. The shower head was positioned over the toilet
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Always amazing. So helpful.
Good 7.9
Pros: This is a well kept basic transit place, just five minutes’ drive from the airport terminal, (or 45 seconds from the runway as drone flies!) Nothing flash at all but good value for money. They have a good quality vehicle for free transfer to the airport.
Cons: It’s fine!

Excellent 9.6
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.
Cons: The area.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Convenient walking distance from the airport. Coffee was good and the air conditioner in the room was excellent. The name says it all, a good place to stay for airport transit. Keep it up!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Transit is perfectly located for a night stop. We use it frequently, there is more choice of places to stay near the airport now but we find the staff delightful, the rooms perfectly adequate and always spotless.
Excellent 8.8
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
Excellent 9.2
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.
Excellent 8.3
Cons: Getting up at 3am but that is not your fault as that’s the time we had to for our international flight- thanks for taking us
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The hotel is very convenient for the airport.
Cons: The breakfast very good

Excellent 9.2

Good 6.3
Cons: It did not live up to the photo
Okay 4.6
Pros: Not very far from the airport.
Cons: Poor and noisy location. No proper restaurant to eat from during the stay.
Mediocre 3.3
Pros: It was close to the airport with shuttle (free pick up but USD5 for drop off) which suited me due to a 6am international flight I had.
Cons: Staff had minimal English and poor customer service skills. I only stayed overnight but woke up several times due to noise. The room was very poorly designed with the corridor lights passing above the large glass window above the door and reflecting in the massive mirror right next to the bed. There was hardly any space in the room to open my medium sized suitcase. The bed was uncomfortable with very old worn out pillows. The staff didn’t even tell me about the hot water switch at check in so I showered with cold water before I realised what the switch would have been for. The shower is located right next to the toilet with minimal space so the water goes everywhere! Also the bathroom window had a large clear glass window to outside area with a poorly fitted curtain. I also had to wait an hour for the meal I ordered for my dinner and a glass of warm juice. Definitely overpriced for the quality you get.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Very convenient for the airport. Over night transit. Car met me as arranged on arrival (no extra cost). Room was simple but clean, hot water, good Wi-Fi, very adequate. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Overall a pleasant stay
Good 7.1
Cons: Google maps location is wrong.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Very good place for a chip stay near the airport. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Everything was super clean. They also organized my transfer from and back to the airport. I recommend this place!
Okay 5.0
Cons: Very noisy hotel all night long.
Mediocre 2.9
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Toilet paper was wet There was no towel to shower Bad service and attitude from reception desk They tried to give us less chelines for dollars
Good 7.5
Pros: A great location when transiting in Dar for one night. Excellent, helpful, attentive staff, and a great daytime view on rooftop restaurant/bar.
Cons: Drawbacks: 1. right next to the train tracks so rooms facing that side can be noisy (and trains run throughout night...), and 2. super close to the airport but as it's off a side road to the main road, it can take nearly 1 hr to get to airport if you use Uber / outside taxi service during rush hour, even though you could walk there faster (and it's usually a 5-10m drive at lower traffic times.

Good 7.5
Pros: Airport shuttle service was great. Very attentive staff. We stayed at this hotel twice and on our second stay they went out of their way to accommodate our late departure.
Cons: Our rooms were on an upstairs level with a door from the outside leading to a hallway off of which our rooms were located. That was fine, but we weren't warned that the outside door would be locked overnight and when we tried to leave for the airport early in the morning we were locked in. We didn't know there was a staff member sleeping in an office near our rooms but finally realized that someone was there and after pounding on the door and window of the office we woke her up and she let us out. A very unsafe practice in case of a fire!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Great choice for a place to sleep near the airport. Good communication, easy pickup, clean room, helpful staff.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Organized pick up from the Ubungo bus station for me-at very reasonable cost! Cooked fantastic chicken, chips and salad for supper-made to order once if arrived, and then escorted me to the airport for my flight the next day! Felt very safe as a solo female traveler as they have a security guard 24/7 and it is a very quiet area. Slept like a dream with AC, comfy beds and when I couldn’t figure out the hot water shower the staff was quick to sort it out for me! Asante sana-thank you so much for your hospitality! I look forward to staying again!
Cons: I couldn’t figure out the hot water but the staff was very quick to boil me some water so that could have a hot shower before my flight! Very appreciated
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Very attentive staff who are proud of the hotel and were happy to meet me from the airport - even at 3.00am. Basic but clean room with internet and air conditioning. Very close to the airport so good for a short layover.
Okay 5.0
Pros: They went above and beyond to be accommodating. They picked me up at the ferry port and dropped me off at the airport which was greatly appreciated
Cons: They only take cash so it has been rather inconvenient to get bookings.com to refund the money to my card The drive from the ferry port to the hotel was kind of scary. Dar Es Salaam at night is kind of scary and we drove the whole hour and a half with the gas indicator light on. The staff was too friendly and helpful. His heart was in the right place but he always stood so close to me, wanted to sit at the dining table with me. As a very independent person I found this a little weird
Okay 5.4
Pros: N Never never never
Cons: They lied about taking credit card payments , there was no food in the restaurant I had to buy my own breakfast even though I was charged for it in the room rate, Everything they say on bbbooking, is a lie booking.com should remove them
Good 6.7
Pros: Near to the airport. Airport shuttle service reliable and reasonable cost. Very friendly and accommodating staff.
Cons: Expected to pay by credit card but had to pay cash. Shower had no shower curtain nor screen so floor of entire bathroom (ie around the toilet and basin area) would have been wet had we used the shower! Very noisy as there was a function on the premises outside our room.
Okay 5.4
Pros: 10 min to airport - when ythere is no traffic jam. It took 30 min at 5 PM. Clean. Staff helpful
Cons: Bathroom where a shower is difficult. Noisy through dogs all night
Good 7.9

Excellent 10.0
Pros: This accommodation was great value for money, a few minuets drive from the airport and gated. The beds were comfy and mosquito nets in good condition. If you need somewhere near the airport this is a great option and the staff will also arrange for you to be collected. Shower was a bit temperamental but definitely not the worst one I experienced on my trip.
Good 7.1
Pros: It was close to the airport
Cons: Very basic. Not great for more than one night stay
Excellent 8.3
Pros: It’s very close to the airport, only about a 5 min drive. It’s good value for money
Cons: The door to the bathroom couldn’t close and there was a very big hole in the mosquito net
Mediocre 3.8
Pros: The bed was comfortable....
Cons: The place is a chop shop in the middle of a slum.. The walkway to the rooms is like a scene from a horror movie.. The rooms are old, unkept and the toilets are crumbling from neglect..
Good 6.3
Pros: It was handy to get to and from the airport and the beds were a good size.
Cons: Not the most luxurious although good for the price.
Okay 5.0
Pros: Breakfast was good. Bed was comfortable. Free wifi was very good. A/C worked well. Organisation of transport was very good. Morning receptionist was friendly.
Cons: Receptionist seemed very unhappy that I had arrived late due to flight delays out of my control. Not very helpful. The room I was in was not as clean as the first one I stayed in. Shower area was quite dirty, no hot water and came in a single jet. The light in the bathroom did not work so I could not see very well. Floor in room and mats were not very clean. There was a hole in mosquito net which I had to cover with a towel. I was also getting bitten by something on my feet under the desk. This room was quite poor. Also the eftpos machine did not work so had to go down the road to get money from a bank. They did provide and escort to go with me which was good.
Good 6.7
Pros: Breakfast was simple but good. The food was tasty and there was enough. Service was prompt.
Cons: The water in the shower was cold and only came out as a jet. The light was not bright so it was hard to read

Pros: Hotel is not too far from the airport. Staff are very friendly. The prices of the room are fair enough compared to the standards of the hotel.
Cons: Hotel's state is very basic and the area where it is located is a bit rough. However, the price is equal to the standard of the hotel. It is rather a motel clean and not too stay there for too long.

Pros: Location to airport; clean property; friendly staff
Cons: The sliding glass doors on second floor opened to a 2’ unguarded ledge with 15’ drop to ground below. I didn’t understand that idea?
Good 7.5
Pros: Very close with airport
Mediocre 3.8
Pros: The bed was confortable and big. Is the only good thing I can tell.
Cons: The staff was sleeping when we arrived at 10am in the sofa of the lobby. We could not pay by card 'cause "was not working" that day... my guess is that never works. The room was full of mosquitos... half of the food they had in the menu was not available. Was the only place in our trip were we had to pay for water in the room. My opinion, for 45€ per night should have at least a free bottle... At night we couldn't sleep 'cause there was a party in the pool, we asked to turn down the volume of the music without any result.
Okay 4.2
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything. No one was picking the phone even though I requested a shuttle from the airport. Had to take a taxi. No shower gel in the bathroom. No cover on the blanket. Noise everywhere in the hotel from 7am ...
