Holiday Inn Dar es Salaam is a 5 star luxury hotel accomodation located 14 kms from Dar es Salaam International Airport. Previously known as the Holiday Inn Hotel Dar es Salaam the new look Southern Sun Dar es Salaam Hotel warmly invites visitors to one of Tanzania’s finest cities with gorgeous accommodation, excellent cuisine and superb treatment. The Southern Sun Dar es Salaam offers well appointed accommodation within walking distance of the central business district and in close proximity to many fine local attractions. The hotel is superbly located on the border of the Botanical Gardens and Government offices. The ambience and decor of this hotel would more than meet the approval of Dar es Salaam's founder, the Sultan of Zanzibar, who established the city in 1882.
Guests are assured to receive VIP treatment fit for a Sultan.The hotel's neighbours include the diplomatic corps numerous NGO's & government offices and international corporations. The Aga Khan Hospital is also close by. Central Dar is a noisy hectic kind of place. As the capital and the most affulent part of Tanzania, the roads are well laid out and signposted.
Dar es Salaam having been westernised to a great extent lacks the clash of old and new African culture that is so interesting, in other towns in Tanzania and Zanzibar, but certainly makes up for this with noise and frenetic activity. If you are arriving into Dar airport or port, the best way to get to the hotel is to take a taxi. The cost is about $15 from the airport and $10 from the port if you negotiate the price in advance.
