Dar Southern Sun


... is located in the city of Dar es Salaam on the Indian Ocean Coast of eastern Tanzania.

This hotel was previously know as the Dar Holiday Inn and should not be confused with a new hotel of that name.

The big plus for this hotel is its location, a couple of blocks back from the waterfront and in a relatively quiet area of town. Despite having 150 rooms, the place is actually quite intimate, with modest dining areas, a tiny gym and a decent pool fitted into a small back garden.

In truth the Dar Southern Sun is rather squeezed onto its plot and everything, including the rooms, is a little small by modern standards. But that is presumably why it is so well priced.

Since the vast majority of our guests are only staying in Dar es Salaam overnight in order to connect to flights, we have found over the years that this makes for a perfectly adequate and reliable option.
