Serena Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam does not offer that much and therefore a hotel with all the mod cons in close proximity to the town centre (and golf course) is a very welcome break from the town’s somewhat hectic and lively atmosphere. The restaurant, Tradewinds, is one of the best in the city and a great place for a supper when staying in Dar es Salaam.

It is formerly known as the Royal Palm.

Dar es Salaam Serena - The Details

Situated in Dar es Salaam, this is in our opinion one of Dar es Salaam’s best hotels, the top of the range in the town centre.  Its grand central elevation makes it a good landmark, and for years it has upheld its enviable position as the only upmarket option in Dar (although this is now somewhat challenged)

Its pristine atmosphere is immaculately preserved by the chill of its air-conditioning throughout and with all the mod cons of a westernised hotel, including hairdressers, travel agents and a BA service desk, this is a good option for a couple of days in Dar. It is not particularly quirky or interesting but has all the mod cons and extras to make your stay extremelly comfortable. 

The patisserie is worth visiting for self-indulgent treats, and the garden provides a pleasant and relaxing haven for a ludicrously expensive pot of tea or a beer.  There is also an attractive swimming pool set aside in private gardens overlooking Dar’s best golf course which we think makes it stand out.
