Fodor's Review

The Serena is a staple in Dar es Salaam as the biggest and best luxury hotel chain on the block, and it definitely fits the bill as it looms large and bright over the downtown city skyline. It has all the bells and whistles one would expect from a luxury hotel, including a business center, a variety of restaurants, a large pool and fitness center. The Serengeti restaurant offers a popular champagne brunch on Sunday, with outdoor terrace seating, while the new Jahazi Restaurant has some of the best seafood in town (particularly the chili, ginger crab). Kibo Bar hosts great live music on the weekends with the jetset.
