2/10 Poor

Bad experience and customer service
Bad customer service from the start. I booked for two people. There was only one towel, one bottle of water and told that breakfast was only for one. They did not wanted to tell me the wireless password my Fiancé had to assist. I informed the unprofessional person at the desk that I have prove I booked for two and she refused to look at my paperwork and informed me it was in the system. I went for something to eat and when I returned they had corrected their intentional errors. I read before from a review that someone had the same issue and they charged them extra. I was not going to allow that to happen to me. In the morning I checked out and went to another Hotel. I was to stay for 6 nights , but after such bad experience I would not stay even if they offered it for free. I complained through and received a refund for the remaining 5 nights. Will not be booking this Hotel again. Let’s this be a warning TJ those travelling in pairs

2/10 Poor

WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. No wifi in the room. Window above the door, so light from the corridor shines into the room all night. No toilet roll. Soil in the rusty old bath. No shower. Sign on the bathroom door about disposing of used condoms. Lift doesn't stop at the floor correctly, so there's large gap to step up into the lift. Check out took ages as receptionist didn't want to take card payment or issue a tax receipt (but did eventually). Receptionist doesn't speak good English and seems incapable of using a phone or a watch correctly. Booked a pick-up from the airport after the last domestic arrival. Airport was closed, taxi rank empty and had to wait alone in the dark for an hour. Requested a discount for drop-off at the airport the next morning due to the inconvenience caused and was told this wasn't possible. Drive from airport took 50 minutes, not the 20 minutes advertised.

4/10 Fair

Not as advertised
Hotel is new and clean. Decorated well. Staff is very friendly. Internet did not work on my floor. I needed the internet because I was there working. No satellite/cable TV access as advertised. jet tub not working. No mini bar in room as advertised. Restaurant service staff is slow. Finally, the price advertised on Expedia was not the price I paid. After booking, the price was shown as higher than advertised.

All around, terrible
Service was terrible, shower was dirty, bathroom was not clean at all and many of things not working, like light, no towels (even after requesting it several times), tub was rusted and molded. Room was hot, A/A was not working appropriately, breakfast not available at the indicated time, and so on. If you can avoid this please, I would recommend you try to find another better one.

OK for an overnight
Greenlight is a typical transit hotel, with convenience to the airport being the main attraction. I had communicated directly with the hotel regarding transportation from the airport and they said that they would arrange for a taxi to pick us up. However, upon arrival we found that no taxi was waiting for us and had to negotiate a price that ended up being almost twice the price quoted by the hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel and asked about the missing taxi, the front desk staff seemed to be unconcerned, offered no apology or other compensation for the increased fare. Checkout time is quite early, 10 AM. I would stay here again if there were no other options available while transiting through Dar.

First night in Tanzania
We had arrived into Dar es Salaam in the middle of the night and were leaving the next day around noon. The room was nice but bring earplugs as it was very noisy outside at night. The staff was kind and helpful.
