I landed in Dar Es Salam and with no prior booking found, Doubletree Hilton Oyster Bay .
From the car park entrance, this hotel looks average but once you are inside, you are in for a pleasant surprise with really well maintained fixtures and property. It took a bit of haggling with the front desk to get me a room but in spite of a fully booked hotel due to an ongoing conference, they found me one facing the town side (instead of the ocean view).
Can't complain too much, as the entire hotel, the staff and accomodations were well worth my money. The highlight of this hotel is that they have a huge outdoor swimming pool + a huge deck for guests to linger around. THe jetty is a sight to behold during sunsets .
Though I was there on business, I would say it is a honeymoon hotel for couples and airline crew (saw a huge entourage of KLM crew trundling into the hotel)
