4/10 Fair

It was a prison for 3 days. Reception was disorganised for they could not even agree that I had paid. No internet, hard water, workers not truthful

4/10 Fair

Not so cheap and cheerful
On the positive side, the staff were efficient, polite and friendly. If you like Indian sub-continent food, the independently run resturant is ok, the food being spicy but with too much sauce/gravy for my taste. The WiFi was ok. Less positively, there were only three (France 24, CNN and Al Jazeera) English language news channels. The hotel, probably for reasons of the owner's/manager's religious beliefs was teetotal; while this is not a problem, it should be advertised. Cleanliness was a challenge - I saw two small cockroaches so there were definitely many more and breeding. The area was characterised by very small shops, unpaved roads (so dusty) and noise. The bed was hard and the pillows lumpy.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel is clean and a few steps away from a mall with good supermarket. Taxi stands and main road are just there downstairs. Staff are very friendly and way better than any hotel I stayed at recently they are extremely respectful and caring. Great value for money.

8/10 Very Good

Great value in the city centre
The Iris Hotel is located in the city centre in an area that is both local and central - to the city, to the Zanzibar ferry and convenient (enough) for the airport. Expectations should be pitched at the price - true it's a little rough around the edges but the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's safe but usual precautions apply. The breakfast is adequate and is served in a comfortable and very clean dining room. Bedrooms have cable TV (if that's important to you), AC and a fan. WiFi only works in public areas but the signal there is strong. I'd have no hesitations recommending this hotel if you're looking for a central, clean and value-for-money hotel

2/10 Poor

Stolen money from the room. Do not stay.
We got stolen $400 USD from our room, and the hotel doesn't want to take responsibility for it. We were one gone for only 2 hours and the door was locked. Staff steals there. Will never stay again and will not recommend.

2/10 Poor

Better off hanging at the airport
Very spartan by any standard. No blankets or towels given. Bed like sleeping on a door with sheets. Was so uncomfortable I did not sleep anyway. Should have just stayed at the airport.... would have gotten more sleep.

Excellent Budget Option
Really comfortable room in a really nice place with friendly, warm staff. Best budget option I have experienced in Dar Es Salaam, and was much better quality than I was expecting. Food places close by as well.
