Though only for a night, I enjoyed my stay here immensely! The room was excellent with an equally excellent view; my colleague and I went for seconds on our breakfast (I would have loved to some local dishes on the menu though)! I especially loved Monica the receptionist; always ready to help with a smile...she was great!

The hotel was very clean, having been recently renovated. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Location is nearby to many of the traditional crafts areas of Dar. Enjoy very much. Price was very reasonable and easy to get to.

We had kids and grandkids move to Dar Es Salaam, so needed a hotel within a stone's throw of their apartment. The Best Western Plus Peninsula fitted our requirements perfectly, though I think it caters mostly to those visiting on business. What we liked was firstly, the size of the rooms - very large and clean - and secondly the... More

Excellent Indian restaurant with great food and staff. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Shame about the hotel lobby. For some reason the air conditioning was set at 34 degrees. We made a hasty departure...

I've stayed here three times for a couple of weeks each time, over the past year. My first stay included a few technical difficulties. By my second stay, the owner had brought in some real professionals from Mauritius and South Africa to work on the dining and lodging respectively. On the dining side, a gentleman named Smitesh from Mauritius has... More

This hotel is really nice and friendly, however, after discovering money missing (that was in a paper 'envelope', in aplastic folder, and in a laptop bag, I had to assume it was taken while I was using the gym or at dinner one night.

At short notice, booked a room to use for freshening up before a very early flight back after our holiday in Zanzibar. Staff very friendly and helpful; lovely pool where we could cool off from the Tanzanian summer heat! Room was spacious and clean, best shower I had throughout Tanzania! Would definately stay over again in future.
