The setting is nice, sitting on the terrace on the waterside, even if the service takes forever and a day. The rooms are good, but the last three times I stayed at Doubletree I didn't get the room I requested and had to change each time. Either no seaview which I had requested and PAID for, or a smell of sewage, or very noisy (extractor ducts on the go 24 hrs a day), etc. And last week the hotel driver that drove me to the airport was a kamikaze driver from hell - and that only for $40. And the food in the restaurant is very so so - the worst gazpacho and caprese ever! The business facilities are good. It has potential, but they have to clean up their act first. Next time in Dar I'll be looking out for a different hotel.
