So the first edition of the sinema zetu international film festival awards went down last weekend (Sunday) at the Milimani City complex in Daresalaam and as it is my duty to keep you informed and updated on some of the major entertainment events taking place in our region (East Africa) this too I had to attend to bring you the action.
But first things first, let’s start with one of the main sponsors who made my trip possible, the Sea Shells Millenium Hotel Daresalaam, the hotel was my official host and I must admit that I enjoyed my stay at the hotel, I spent most of my time in my hotel room at the second floor where also lies the swimming pool and a modern fitness centre.
One of the reasons that made me stay indoors for the better part of my stay was the availability of a very strong internet connectivity (Wi-Fi) in the room that made it easy for me to stream videos, watching Kenyan news live through my laptop apart from doing my normal duties.
The hotel is conveniently located in the upmarket Kijitonyama area only 5km from city center and business district, at the Local Pension Fund (LAPF) building.
Besides being located close to the city center the hotel is only 15 km from the Julius Nyerere International Airport. The location was also very convenient to me since from the hotel to Milimani City is just a twelve minutes drive.
The hotel staff right from the reception desk were very friendly and welcoming infact there is this Masaai guy who sits at the main entrance a very friendly dude, we developed a good rapport right from the time I checked In and by the way I promised to find him the next time I will be visiting Daresalaam a promise that I must fulfill.
Apart from the usual food, the hotel also offers a wide range of Swahili dishes.
Just opposite the hotel also lies the village museum (Kijiji cha Makumbusho) a historic site managed by the National Museum of Tanzania.
The hotel also offers conference facilities and can be able to accommodate close to 150 guests in the hall.
You need to try this hotel next time you visit Daresalaam and trust me you will get value for your money and more so enjoy your stay.
