The food is excellent and the rooms are spacious and pleasant. Lovely pool area and fantastic upstairs bar and restaurant where you can work in peace or sip a G&T after a day of running around. What makes this place special is Gordon's attention to detail and a personal touch that you simply can't buy. At times the power can...

A perfect place to start and finish our awesome trip to Tanzania. I can't think of many hoteliers who would be up at 5am to welcome you on arrival and then say goodbye at 1 am on the day you leave. Thanks Gordon. Clean and safe, with a pool and easy walking to Slipway for the souvenir market and boats...

I was actually expecting to be in the usual hotel were everything is a bit robotic and all giving smiles because they have been ordered to. But i arrived in a home and at once i felt like i was at home with my family. the room is clean and simple. the internet is very good and i love the...

Situated in the elegant Masaki peninsula and 45 minutes from the airport. It's a popular place with many guests. Large room, but a bit too essential. If you like to have a lunch nearby, you have to walk a long distance and get to the Slipway. With regard to my dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant, I think that...

I was impressed with the big, airy rooms, quite neighbourhood and good quality food (and wine) at Alexanders. However what really won my over was Gordon's personal assistance after an unpleasant incident on (what was meant to be) my last afternoon in Dar. Regrettably I was robbed outside another large establishment in the area. I immediately sought assistance from their...

I only stayed here one night, but it was very good. I arrived late from overseas to find Gordon, the proprietor, waiting up for me. He showed me to my room, brought in a plate of fruit "in case I was hungry," and bade me good night. Breakfast in the morning was very good: the sausages were great. And then...

We have stayed twice now at Alexanders and consider it a fantastic discovery hidden in a side street on the peninsula in Dar. It is still very close to all that one would need in the way of shops , bars and restaurants but has such a calm tranquil feel about it you are immediately relaxed , sitting by the...

Really nice place on the peninsula. Rooms are well put together with excellent bathrooms and AC. The rooftop restaurant is delicious, and I hear that he has a rockin' wine cellar (though I didn't check it out). Gordon also let me use my room until 7pm as my flight wasn't until 10pm and he didn't have anyone coming in for...

This is a small stylish hotel which is quiet and relaxing. Good size rooms with reasonable lighting for working. The wi-fi is reliable including in public areas. Food is delicious particularly the fish. Nice also to have a light alternative if a big supper isn't your choice. The pool is small but good for a quick dip. Probably not for...

Its hard to know where to start with a review of this small, gracious retreat in Dar. After the heat, chaos and spent energy of a day in the city to come 'home' to Alexander's is a reward. Gordon and his team treat you like family and every welcome is warm and reassuring. The cool simplicity of the rooms, the...
