As we missed our domestic flight to our safari destination ( Rufiji River Camp ) we had to spend the night in Tanzania's capital.
To be honest, I had very little expectations and thought the hotel might match the condition of the roads and the taxi we were in.
How wrong was I.
The hotel is on the creek side, and previously was built as a Kempinski. A very comfortable, zen like arrival and lobby.
Smiling people from porter to receptionists and so on. A quick check in and a reference to the rooftop bar... that was the second time, as several crew members of our EK flight said same.
The room was contemporary, light and smart. Good amenities and goose down pillows.
And yes, level 8 is a massive indoor/outdoor space overlooking the city on the water. A deejay playing funky tunes, assertive waiters, cold beers, crafted cocktails and reasonable prices.
The restaurant was not bad as well.
We only stayed one night, but we'd be back if the opportunity arises.More
