It was an excellent stay. We knew were would be pressed for time and busy in Dar es Salaam before our safari. We wanted a hotel that was affordable and close to both the airport, downtown and beach. This was the perfect fit. We enjoyed the garden courtyard, pool and late night bar service. The breakfast which was included was... More

Just enjoyed an excellent one-night stay at Protea Courtyard in Dar - best value in terms of price in Dar. Liked the old style feel to the place - and rooms were tastefully done. Not too big or too small. Courtyard with all its greenery brings nature into the core of the hotel - making a change from some of... More

This was my first trip to Dar and to Tanzania, and my stay at your hotel was very pleasant! The hotel staff was very friendly and attended to my requests. The food in the restaurants was very good, especially the samosas in the hotel bar - I would definitely recommend them. The only downside was that I did not receive... More

Spacious rooms with comfy beds, choice of pillows, efficient air conditional and lovely showers. Plentiful and wide ranging breakfast and good dinner. Great communal areas for work and relaxation, particularly the courtyard (with a nice pool) which really is a peaceful haven with a lovely atmosphere, especially at night. Courteous and helpful staff. A good central location. And almost half... More

I have stayed at various hotels in Dar before, but this was my first time here. As the name suggests, the main feature is the courtyard, which has pool, shaded tables, and terraces surrounding it, which is where the rooms are located. The room I had was very nice, old style, but had all the amenities I needed. The staff... More

Very good hotel... I don't give five stars because it is a little bit old... Excellent service and 5 star food... Well located! It is a Southern African Hotel chain. We dud visit during Ramadaan time so breakfast started at 4:00 a.m.

This is an oasis amidst the bustle and noise of Dar. The courtyard is beautiful and restful. The pool is pleasant. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly.

Had a wonderful stay here. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. But the real charm is the courtyard. For dinner, drink or a swim, it's a fantastic place to be. At night with the calm yellow lights, it brings a comfort and relaxation to the evening. Recommend staying here over a more commercial... More
