This hotel is a real gem, and one that has been carefully put together to enable its guests to have a lovely time when staying there. Hospitable and efficient staff, great bed rooms and fantastic bathrooms. Great art-work. I was travelling alone and no one else was staying there on one night and the manageress dined with me to make me feel even more welcome and cared for. Well worth a visit. Makes the Serena in Zanzibar look like a guest house!

My wife and myself stayed for the first night of our Tanzania holiday (Selous and Zanzibar) at the Oyster Bay Hotel in Dar es Salaam.
The hotel is quite expensive, but it is fantastic. It is a new small boutique hotel on the coast of the Indian Ocean (all 8 rooms have ocean views) in a residential and embassy area of Dar Es Salaam.
The welcome, the common areas, the garden and pool, the room, the food, the managers and staff - everything was great. Transfers from the airport and back are included in the hotel rate. Since we had to leave quite early in the morning, they brought a very good breakfast to our room.
I am thinking of something to criticize and can't find anything!
I would recommend the hotel without hesitation for a stop-over in Dar es Salaam.
