Safari Inn Dare es Salaam is a basic hotel in central Dar. The location is perfect if you want to explore the city or if you are planning to take the ferry to Zanzibar the next day.
It's also not too far from the main bus station (can easily get a taxi or a daladala).
Do not expect anything fancy but for this price with a/c you cannot get anything much better. All rooms are self-contained with bathroom.
There is plenty of hot water and generally rooms are clean. The breakfast is included in the price but it's quite basic: tea/coffee, toasted bread with butter and jam, fruit juice, and a banana.
You can get eggs for 500Tsh/each.
Security is also pretty good: the main entrance is not on the street and there
is always an askari (night watchmen) there. Room keys look pretty secure too.
The staff is quite friendly and there is a computer with free interent at the reception. Many good restaurant just a few blocks away.
If you are looking for something cheap, safe, and generally clean Safari Inn is a good choice in Dar!
