Zanziplanet reviews opinion

  • This is a beautiful hotel with outstanding service. Rooms are immaculate and have everything you would need for a short stay. Food is plentiful not to mention delicious, and the hostess does her very best to make sure that all her guests are comfortable, well fed and that they always have a glass in hand. The transfer from the airport to hotel is comfortable, and the English speaking driver will make sure you are well hydrated. This really is a fantastic hotel to consider for your stop-over in Dar Es Salam.
