Business trip to dar
Hotel is in a Gd location, the service at reception was good, rooms looked clean, but the bedding needs a complete change, the duvet n pillows have a stale smell, the mattress was too hard, carpet had a damp smell...for the amount charged I think better hotels can be found with better bedding and atmosphere...not to forget the extra charges done 5% per day so be ready for it...also the breakfast was charged and then had to get my confirmation that it was including breakfast...So check your bills...next trip Will try another hotel..

Alright & Comfortable
We checked in for a night to the Holiday Inn. In terms of what you get for what you pay, there are most likely better options out there. Overall you pay exorbitant (by local standards) fees for food and the shuttle service to the airport. Also, you must pay a 5% service fee at checkout (hidden fee supposedly for government). On a positive note, the bar and restaurant upstairs transform into night club like atmospheres (if that is your fancy). Not bad, but just left feeling there should be better deals out there.

Damp/Stale Smell in Corridor and Room
Lobby was all good, its when the lift doors opened on 5th floor when the smell hits you, the same smell was in the room, a damp/stale smell like from dirty carpets. And the electric scent deodariser that they put in the corridor only made the situation worse! In room bathroom door that scrapes the floor (looks like its been like that for the longest while as the door wood at bottom is chipping off!)Bed sheets had the same the damp/stale smell of the room unlike the clean crisp smell expected of such an establishment. What a let down for a superb located establishment.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Nice place
In the embassy district right in the heart of downtown, so pretty safe. Super nice restaurants nearby. Pretty good food. Roof top bar is great. The pool very tiny but good for a quick dip. They have a shuttle service to/from airport for 25 bucks but you have to call them to arrange it ahead of time. There is a hotel person at the airport sometimes who was very nice and helped me arrange transportation and bill it to the hotel which was great. Last minute visitors visas can be obtained at airport when u arrive but you must have $100 USD cash to get one and be prepared to wait for an hour to get it. Be sure to give your self a lot of time to get to the airport, like 3 to 4 hours before your flight especially if it rains. Hotel staff can help u estimate how early you need to leave. Rush hour starts at 4 and can go till 8.so plan ahead.
