Dolphin Hotel and Restaurant
Jamhuri Street Chuda Area Tanga TZ, 0255, Tanzania
Review №1

It was a typical 1 night stop hotel. We found it online as we had not planned on sleeping in Tanga. The rooms were OK, ac was good, but bathrooms are not well designed. Very uncomfortable. No soap provided in my room though my colleagues room had. Lots of mosquitoes to contend with also. Breakfast was average. Staff were very helpful and friendly. No Covid precautions evident.

Very nice place to stay with family. The service is good and people are well friendly and lovely.

Review №3

Our money and passports were stolen from our rooms.The same night a man entered in another room where a girl was about to go to sleep. She started to scream really loud and thats when he ran off. The staff and management of the hotel could not care less and they did nothing to help us solve the situation with the local authorities. It is simply too dangerous to stay at this hotel as they have no cameras and the windows do not close properly and people can get in any room using the fire escape stairs.

Review №4

It is dangerous to leave the window open. There are people coming in the rooms through the very accessible window ledges. They tried to get in three of our rooms and managed to steal some of our belongings. It seems to be a scheme designed together with some of the employees, if not the management itself. Its not safe to lodge here.

Nice Hotel in good budget. I am happy

Review №6

Do not recommend the place, the food was teribile at breakfast and the rooms should ne more cleanAlso the manager doesnt care about the people needs.For your safety, choose another hotel.

Review №7

Love the place. Clean and tidy.The attentants are not friendly at all. Not sure if its because of the people they meet there every day or they dont have training.But still the place is really nice.Located at the heart of Tanga, you have access to lots of places from here,Taxi stand is just outside, food places are located literally 200m away.

Horrible experience! Someone broke in one of our friends’ room and stole their passports and all their money while they were sleeping. Moreover, they tried to steal the belongings from other 2 rooms, but they were caught in the act. It was most likely an inside job as the thief knew exactly which rooms to target. The personnel was not supportive at all, they were just waiting for us to leave the hotel without finding a suitable solution. We spent 7 hours trying to figure out what to do and they refused to help us. It was definitely the worst experience I’ve ever had so far!

Review №9

Worse experience ever!!! We got stolen from our rooms and the owners could not care less about this. We have lost A significant amount of money and our passport. They don’t have any surveillance or proper security. Beyond this terrible event I would like to highlight the following:1. The rooms are not clean. Everything is old and not sanitised.2. Even if the room was double, we have received only a set of towels. The keys have not worked from the first time and it was a lot of back and forth until we have checked in.3. The breakfast is almost nothing, only tea and some boiled eggs, they don’t even have coffee.4. The personnel is not understanding english and it was quite difficult to communicate.I am not recommending this, it is not safe and they are not taking care of their customers!! I have been in many places but this was the worst experience ever from multiple points of view.

Review №10

Worst experience ever. Our group was robbed by thiefs because the hotel has no security, the windows cand be easily opened and from the builduing next door there was acces up yo the 3rd floor. The management didnt want to help us in any way

Review №11

Unsecure place. 2 of my friends were robbed in the room of money and passports while sleeping. 2 other friends caught a local thief in the room trying to steal while sleeping. There is no hotel security. Unfriendly and unsupportive staff.

Review №12

Nice place, need a little renovation though.

Review №13

Loved it so much. They have best rooms also with wifi.

Review №14

Central, fair priced and good rooms in different categories/price. Nice hidden roof top bar. Both local and non-local food. Friendly staff.

Review №15

Worst hotel and horible experience. The windows are loose and we had thieves in a few rooms and documents and money were stollen.

Review №16

Nice rooms,Good services,Inexpensive

Review №17

For a standard room to stay overnight, it is worth the money. The hospitality is a 5*. However, do not expect too high sleeping too tight because the train might honk right on the side of your ear..

Review №18

It’s a terrible place! Very unsafe and durty. They stole our money and passports, thieves entered through the window and took everything with people sleeping inside. Don’t ever try it!

Review №19

Worst experience ever. This place is the heaven of thieves. Do not choose this hotel.

Review №20

Horrible experience. Some of our friends got robbed while they were sleeping in the room. The hotel staff was not very nice. Dont stay here!

Review №21

Clean and spacious rooms. Excellent room service. Front office very helpful, offering laundry services and even repaired one of my bags. Breakfast hearty and different each day. Location is a bit off from city centre but close to airport, but theres always bikes and taxis idling outside.

Review №22

Review №23

Review №24

Its was amaizing trip, nice service,

Review №25

While payment their machine broke down since they had problems with electricity. Even though I could prove with my online banking that the money was paid they were not accepting this. They were putting a lot of pressure that I have to pay again! Finally I did to escape from this uncomfortable situation and the manager told me if I would be right and the money will be taken double he will contact me. Of course I was right, the money was taken twice and he never contacted me! Stay away from this place!

Review №26

Good and reasonable hotel but food service is not up to the mark..We have stayed recently with family.. while check out time we forget one luggage to collect, when I asked hotel staff to send me back to the luggage they have demanded money but more than that someone taken hood jacket from our luggage.

Review №30

Is a worst place to be, had an experience 2 days ago as workers are not motivated and not welcoming at all.surely I moved from there to nearby hotel called Nginda if not mistaken

Review №31

Very pleasant place, cool and breathtaking 👌 room are quite good

Review №32

We got upgraded to the most luxurios building because they didnt complete the booking early enough. So we actually got a bigger room, which was quite comfortable and had a big bed. The bar and bbq on the roof are fantastic and has a nice atmosphere and really nice employes. The reception was also very helpfull at all times. The breakfast was good but not much variancy.

Review №33

No value for money!! Breakfast is bad, rooms are good but is noise and washroom experiance is bad. No water sometimes and water drainage is not good.

Review №34

Nice ambience. But food wise not very good

Review №35

Very clean hotel, about 3 Kilometres from the fish Market and a walking distance to the city center, Municipal Council, major regional trnasport and many other places. Best deal for the prices in Tanga. The manager and other Staff are very nice.

Review №36

Customer care of some of the working staffs is very poor. You would not like to be there next time

Review №37

Perfect accomodation but the breakfast service is too local plus an addition of an extra cash to breakfast when bought to the room

Review №38

Easy to find self driving. The manager was really helpful and room was clean. There’s a bar right next door and a small grill for snacks. Breakfast was buffet style and really good.
