“Just Fine”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is an Excellent Cheap hotel for Short stay.
For 85 USD BB this is the best you can get in city center so far.
The rooms are tiny & outdated but Clean.
Breakfast is repetitive but fine.
3 times a week they provide Open buffet with live entertainment. The best was the Tanzanian traditional show. This only cost 20 USD.
The staff is friendly & kind.

Stayed here most of the times I am in dar es salaam which is about twice a year. The hotel is in a convenient location on the main road. The staff are excellent and welcome you with genuine Tanzanian hospitality. The rooms are very clean and decent. The food is superb and the breakfast selection is wide and excellent. There is a special Tanzania themed night on Wednesdays?? That is good for enjoying local cuisine and listening to local music. Try it and you will love it.

My wife and I love the friendliness of this hotel. Conventiently located, very friendly staff, fine food and - for us the highlight - each Wednesday's 'Tanzanian Night', with an extensive buffet of good-quality local food. Nice park opposite and good walks around the hotel, especially in the early evenings.

Room Tip: For the Tanzanian Night book a table near the entertainment in advance and arrive at 6.55 pm

Stay at Peacock for two months, the true Tanzanian Hospitality!!! They do everything to help you, the food is delicious especially if you participate on the Monday Grill Night by the swimming poll, and the Tanzanian night at the 8th floor where you can see the beautiful view of Dar Es Salaam! I really enjoyed my experience at Peacock City Center Hotel and I recomend you to stay there!

My daughter and I spent a night at The Peacock before catching our flight back to England. We also had dinner there (Indian buffet) which was expensive and not very good. The room at $130 was very expensive for what it offered. On getting out of bed (we had been given a double bed inspite of booking twins) I gashed my leg on a broken rusty metal spring sticking out of the side of the mattress. I reported this to the management whose attitude was "it is not our fault". We eventually met with the manageress who couldn't really be bothered and offered us $30 off the bill in compensation. We negotiated a bigger discount but our time was limited as we had to leave for the airport after my leg was bandaged. The whole attitude towards service seemed wrong and the lack of concern was upsetting. I could not recommend this hotel. It was an unfortunate end to a very good holiday.

Me and my friend stayed only for one night since we came with the ferry from Unguja and was going to leave Dar the next day.A hotel with decent standard for a decent price i undoubltedly hard to find at first glance - even though i know a few places cheaper than the Peacock. Surprisingly, accomodation with decent standard are rather expensive in east africa.
i gave it a try since a friend¨s friend knew the owner.
Anywho, i Would like to say that for like 110 US per night it is a good option if that price appeals to you. If you can, try to agree about a price in advance since i know that sometimes its higher and sometimes is lower.
The hotel has a very good standard and have been established since 26 yrs back, though considerable renovation has been going once since then. The staff was excellent and friendly.

The location might not be the best since along Bibi Tit Mohammed Rd but its just a short walk to the more central parts of Dar (that in question if Dar actually has a "center"). There are two resturants and bars which are nice with good personell. We paid 110 USD for a twin-room and i believe that is a ok price for what you get in comparison to other alternatives for a similar price.
Will stay there again if i am able to pay for it!

I normally like staying at the Protea Hotels (Courtyard or Oyster) when in Dar es Salaam but due to the fact I had an important early morning business meeting in town, I chose to stay at the Peacock Hotel City Centre (I realized later that Protea Courtyard would also have worked!!). I was not sure how I would find it but I was surprise by the service I got for the 3 nights I was there. The rooms are really nicely done and the food is great! However, being on the 7 floor, there was a bit of noise in the early evenings as furniture was being moved across on the 8th floor (dont know what was happening there).
Lastly, the staff at the reception as well as in the restaurant need to develop finesse in how they deliver their services to clients. It is not enough just to serve someone and to smile.

Room Tip: Avoid the 7 floor - rooms 714-718 - a lot of noise from floor 8 above.
