The hotel is ideally situated in the business district of Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania. The city’s name means “Haven of Peace”. Although Dar es Salaam is no longer the country’s capital it is still the center of the permanent central government, and the country’s leading center for arts, fashion, media, music, film, and television, and important financial institutions. Built in 1865 or 1866 by Sultan Majid bin Said of Zanzibar on the edge of the Indian Ocean, the city fell into decline only to be revived by the German East Africa Company in 1887. It then passed to British rule after World War I, and finally received independence in 1961. It is now the third fast growing city in Africa.
