This hotel is just wonderful! What impressed me most was the food and kindness of all the staff. From breakfast to dinner, all the meals served in the Terrace restaurant and in the waterfront restaurant were delicious and diverse. They have a considerable variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. I recomend South African wines. The hotel is placed upon a...

We would stay two nights if the room they gave us was nice. Unfortunately they gave as a room with a view to a construction site with a lot of noise. The common areas of the hotel are nice and the surroundings interesting. Great nail shop at the hotel shopping center.

Perfect location by the water with local flavours and everything you would want under one roof from great food, coffee and chocolates to shopping for hot weather essentials. All put together perfectly with a sense of the aesthetics which the Italians possess and perform with such ease.

Ask for a room in the new building. They are slightly more expensive but waaaay better quality and a lot have views over the sea. We have to say we absolutely loved our stay at the Slipway hotel.

The first hotel we arrived at in Tanzania: Slipway was clean, welcoming and friendly. The room was a really good size - light and airy. Nice bathroom and comfy large bed.

Located in the very popular Oyster Bay area of Dar es Salaam, this hotel overlooks the old slipway and bay area. Local fisherman go out early mornings to fish for the day. Rooms are clean, neat and spacious. Two restaurants on the premises as well as an array of shops, bank and supermarket. Good value for money.

Once again I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Slipway. I keep coming back because the rooms are comfortable, they have beautiful views of the peninsula from their new hotel extension and the staff are always friendly. If you are looking for a great place to stay close to the CBD, I would recommend Hotel Slipway.
