The room was very clean and the air conditioning worked very well, the shower was really nice too. I had to work a lot from my hotel room and the WiFi was brilliant,... More

Well located, well maintained and well appointed hotel centrally located in Dar es Saalam. We spent a total of 3 nights here. In spite of a late arrival (after 10 ppm) and early departures (at 5 and 7 AM), the staff was always very friendly and accommodating, able to arrange airport shuttles, breakfast boxes and late check-outs at late notice!...

Welcoming reception - the first of many that we experienced throughout Tanzania. Lovely clean rooms; air conditioning; hot powerful shower; drinks by the swimming pool; in-house restaurant which, although served a good choice of dishes, including Indian. Altogether, for 6 of us, a fabulous meal with drinks and some puddings came in at under £100 - which for choices which... More

These guys truly go above and beyond to ensure you have a fantastic stay!! Our group had a significant amount of extra requirements including having a cake made on a special occasion to accommodating someone with significant dietary restrictions. They truly did everything they could to accommodate our requests and always did so happily. I would stay at this hotel... More

I've stayed at the Protea a couple of times while in Dar. Nice rooms. Staff is great and always very helpful. Restaurant is solid. Breakfast is pretty good with tasty fresh juices. It's not super close to a lot of other attractions but overall it's a solid hotel.

It has functioning wifi, a nice pool, beautiful courtyard, clean rooms situated in a circle around the courtyard, leafy, green gardens, and nice wooden decor in the bedrooms. We slept really...
