    « Great for a business trip »

    Big room, clean, breakfast to take away at 4.30 AM, quick check in and out. My room had a view on the street with a fuel station but I did not hear any noise during the night. The room menu was quite short but I managed to get additional (Indian) dishes delivered from the hotel's restaurant to my room.

    « good hoetel »

    good hotel . we like to this hotel hotel clean .nice service. high quality. good breakfast quiet .... Every thing is perfect nice room view with luxury The room was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and... we hope you will be happy

    « Great place! »

    I enjoyed my stay at the hotel for the time I spent there . I love the rooms -they are spacious, clean and well ventilated. The restaurant is awesome, the waiters and waitresses are very professional and courteous. Nuru and Emmanuel, good work! They take time to understand your order and the food is amazing! I love the decor and the tranquil colors the hotel chose!Thumbs up

    « Nice hotel »

    Every thing is perfect nice room view with luxury breakfast friendly staff zym area in the hotel is perfect bathroom size of the room is big. I really comfortable stay in the hotel I really stay in my next visit .

    « Very Pleasant! »

    We only stayed one night for our layover in Dar Es Salaam, but it was a lovely night! The room was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the shower had great water pressure. The restaurant downstairs was great - my travel partner and I are both vegan and they made us a delicious pasta dish with no cheese or meat and it was divine! One thing that I would like to note (and this is nothing bad about the hotel itself of course) is that it took us 2 hours to get to the hotel from the airport. This could be due to the fact that traffic is apparently horrible in Dar Es Salaam and we were driving in rush hour (according to the taxi driver) but you can expect to pay around 115,000 TZS (around $50 USD) to get there if you're coming from the airport.

    « Pleasant and wonderful stay »

    Stayed at this establishment for 7 nights. Wonderful staff, amazing service is what comes to my mind. What stands out for me are the following; spacious rooms, comfortable beds, clean (although attention to details helps, cupboards require a thorough clean), Food is good (breakfast and dinner). I only have one complaint though, the gym; free weights, pulley frame/machine is dangerous, as the pulley system is not well greased and does not run smooth - tends to get stuck, also the weights being rubberized helps, due to humidity the weights can slip and fall (especially free weights). You're not far from your first gym injury. For a hotel that pays attention to details why cant you spend a little more and get some appropriate gym equipment? (not locally made equipment). Please consider this as genuine advise. Otherwise you guys are doing a fabulous job and thanks for making my stay pleasant and homely.

    « Dr Faraja Gabriel - Manager at FHI360 »

    Best Western Plus has been my official hotel during my business trips to Dar. It remains to be one of the best (perhaps the leading ) in terms of quality service and satisfaction. As a business person, I would always recommend this hotel for our staff, family and friends.

    « Stiffling heat »

    February in Dar was very hot and it helped a lot to sit in air conditioned places. While the service was great in the hotel, the air conditioning at lobby did not work well. The area around the business center was too hot. Indeed, the thermometer indicated 38 degrees. Nevertheless, I appreciated the quality of food and the professional staff.

    « Excellent service »

    Great variety and delicious food. Nice and large room that keeps a very stable and good temperature. The staff offers a great service and is always happy and very welcoming. Huge thanks to Elizabeth in the reception for helping us to get in contact with several local people, and alot more regarding our entire stay in both BW+P, and in the rest of Tanzania. Karl

    « The hotel is located in a convenient and quiet part of the city, near the ocean coast. Clean comfortable rooms, friendly »

    A good bathroom with a set of all necessary towels and shampoo. Clean corridors, view, koneno from the room is not always attractive, but it is more likely connected with the local mentality than with any European habits.

    « Top class service and food »

    Fantastic service. Great chef and food. Staff is very nice and friendly. I cannot point one negative thing about the hotel. 10/10. Rooms are spacious and clean. Like a suit. Reasonably priced hotel. No match . Great breakfast. Coconut water in the breakfast is speciality of this hotel

    « Got Off to a Slow Start But Then Things Went Smoothly »

    The front desk staff person seemed to have trouble finding our reservation, even after I produced our confirmation number. After a time, she finally located it, and then our stay went very smoothly. The bartender was friendly and talkative as was our server at dinner. We enjoyed our meal with enthusiasm and loved the relish tray and green chutney that was served with it. Kudos to the kitchen staff. Our dinner was very good!

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The rooms are so spacious, clean and the staff are enthusiastic and happy to help. It is in a great and central location, not far from a variety of restaurants. The beds are comfortable, I had a pleasant stay over all.

    « Peninsula Hotel Dar Es salaam »

    Good place to stay, we enjoyed our stay, welcome was very Good, the staff were very hospitable, the porter in particular was so good and very proud of the Hotel, Good hotel for business travelers......

    « A decent enough hotel for a short stay »

    We stayed for a night after landing in Dar and were heading to Arusha the next day. The rooms were bigger than expected and clean. The staff were courteous and the breakfast was standard with bread, eggs and cereal. It is reasonably priced and about 1 hour away from the airport.

    « Comfortable business hotel »

    I tried this hotel as its close to many of the best restaurants and most of the expat housing so would be convenient for colleagues based in Dar es Salaam. Also because it was very well priced! For a business trip, this hotel is good. Reception was efficient, comfortable lobby for working while waiting, nice rooms with comfortable bed. The waitress at breakfast was very friendly every morning and the spread was good. The internet connection was very good. I managed to watch an episode of Law and Order on my streaming app with no issues at all. Very impressive for East Africa.

    « Better than I expected »

    This was my first stay at Best Western Plus Peninsula and I had a better experience than I expected. The food was awesome and room service were always responsive and reasonably quick. When I had to do some last minute laundry and ironing housekeeping came through and I was actually well impressed by how efficient everything was from reservation down to my departure. The room was really spacious which is a huge deal for me and very quiet despite the location being not so isolated. Overal, I would totally recommend this place, and I am a very picky person :-) Cheers!

    « Good Business Hotel in central location »

    I was surprised at this find. While this hotel is not luxury, it is a standard business hotels with large, comfortable rooms that have well functioning air-conditioning and Wifi. You can definitely work from the hotel and the breakfast which is included is good. Hotels' central location is very good to get back to center town or working around Masaki. It not luxury but it is very comfy. Staff is fantastic.

    « A very nice hotel in Dar es salaam »

    The hotel and the service worth every penny I paid for my stay. I recommend you visit either for business or leisure. Nice rooms and other amenities, close to most business centres in Dar es salaam and also places to have fun.

    « comfortable and nice hotel »

    The hotel is very comfortable, everything works and staff is extremely friendly. I would recommend to everyone. The breakfast is a good selection of english and continental. Well sorted. Perfekt place to stay for a Business trip.

    « Surprisingly good find »

    Unusual to find a reasonably priced hotel in this part of the world where everything works. Internet, TV, AC, plumbing. Comfortable beds and clean linen. Also a very good location for all parts including Mikocheni, the Peninsula and even Town. We use it now for all group visitors. There is a reasonable room service menu, mini bar and a good restaurant. Make sure you ask for the discounts announced in the rooms - the reception staff don't always know about them. There are good conference facilities and a small gym and spa.

    « Business trip accomodation »

    I recently did a business trip to Dar es Salaam. Best Western Peninsula is a very good choice for accommodation. Close to city centre for business, and close to all the restaurants and entertainment in the peninsula area. Price was very good. Rooms are spacious and clean. A definite good choice.

    « Business visit »

    I was returning to Dar es Salaam on a business trip after more than 20 years, a country where i was born and migrated to my home country in the Seychelles long long back. With no idea of the hotels in the country, i decided to go for a brand, ''Best Western'' to be safe. I was not disappointed, it was a very good hotel with great staff and very clean large rooms. The location was just right as it was close to my meetings and also there are lots of restaurants and shops at walking distance. It was also very close to the beach side, so was able to enjoy some swahili cuisine. I was very impressed with the hotel staff, they all displayed great care, attention to details and assist to guide where one should go and how careful we should be. It was an overall great experience and i would recommend this hotel to any visitor. Hope to be there next year and would not hesitate to stay at Best Western Plus .

    « Awful managers, prostitutes gather outside »

    Managers and night staff are very unfriendly and unhelpful. Do not get caught with a smoking room on level one, they absolutely stink! A large group of prostitutes gathers outside every evening, and nothing done to get rid of them. Breakfast disappointing. Other hotels in Dar offer much better value and facilities for the money

    « Executive Regional Director »

    Spent five weeks+ at the Best Western and had excellent overall stay experience. Very cordial and wonderful staff and management; Really comfortable, clean and easily accessible accommodations. Looking forward to return visits. S.Johnson

    « My experience at Best Western »

    The experience was great, very good ambiance within the Masaki area, polite and helpful staff. The rooms are awesome, quite large and well themed. It is a place i would recommend one to stay especially if its for a business trip in Dar es Salaam

    « Great Centrally Located Place »

    I have now stayed at 3 best western hotels and what I look for is consistency. And at the Peninsula you get just that. Their staff are friendly and they do learn from mistakes and try to improve and deliver great service. I would recommend this hotel for long stays

    « Just okay »

    Stayed at Best Western Peninsula while attending a meeting in Dar University The room I was allocated was huge and nice. There is coffee and a mini bar in the room. Since Dar is normally hot there was an A/C in the room. The food was just okay and the hotel service pathetic. At least the hotel is in a good location surrounded by other bars and restaurants hence one had other choices for meals.

    « Good visit to Dar »

    The hotel is well-located and i had an overall positive experience. While i was extremely jet-lagged and probably any bed would have sufficed, this one was quite comfortable. The room did small slightly more of smoke than i would have preferred and while the shower was nice and hot, a bit more water pressure would have been appreciated. But, overall, a (overly) large, comfortable room and good service.

    « Very Good »

    Hotel is very good. Has the usual BW refinements. Breakfast was good. Service excellent. Mute point is Location and no swimming pool. It's on a main road, with a petrol station just outside it. It's mainly a business hotel, so don't expect sea views.

  • 4
    « A great experience »

    Very clean and good sized rooms, polite and attentive staff made for a welcoming and very pleasant stay. Internet was fast and Food was superb - I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Dar.

    « A short but enjoyable stay »

    With a 2 day stay in Dar I picked this hotel as a more affordable option to the bigger sea front hotels that cater for tourists. Yes it's predominantly used by business people and there is no view to admire but that didn't detract from my stay. The rooms are enormous, comfortable, clean and provide everything you need. The city centre is a short cab journey away and the peninsula with it's array of restaurants just a short walk. The staff are friendly and attentive. If, like me you've had a long flight and don't want the hassle of finding or negotiating with a taxi, the hotel also offer a car service to meet you at the airport.

    « Business Stay at DAR Es Salem »

    A clean hotel with a very friendly staff. The hotel is conveniently located. It was a great hotel for a business trip or leisure trip. Breakfast had a variety of items to choose from and the staff was helpful.

    « Excellent service »

    Friendly and helpful staff most of the time. The reservations department is particularly helpful and responsive on room availability. And a lot of improvements at the Front desk since my last visit. Rooms spacious and clean. Keep it up.

    « Feel Luxury in budget »

    Well excellent hotel to stay in Dar es Salaam. even their standard rooms make you feel in luxury. Such a gentle and nice staff. Staff is very cooperative and soft spoken. Room service is best and prompt as well as if you want some local help. They suggest you good options and your safety is priority there.

    « Is this the worst hotel in Dar? »

    Probably not, but the worst I stayed in. Booked and paid two rooms by only one showed when we arrived. They had rooms so ok-ish. Check in was ok, friendly staff. Then the fun started. I wanted a drink before bed, it was a comedy. Everyone was nice but incompetent. A simple whiskey with ice and Sprite created so much havoc it was incredible. I waited while they got the whiskey from one bar, a glass from another, Sprite from some place else. Finally they brought whiskey only.... After complaining to the manager and after nearly 30 mins and they said they would bring to the room, I went up and met a waiter who said it was in the bar, went down again, no drink, went back up they we waiting with the tray. Total disorganisation. First and last time here.

    « Excellent service and facilities! »

    A friendly helpful staff and very clean and well organised hotel. Large clean rooms. Comfortable beds, Has everything you need. Great breakfast-all you need. Tv service and WiFi great No complaints! Thanks

    « Good location »

    I stayed here on business for a few days and it's a good hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable, the Wi-Fi very good, the mini bar is well stocked and there is a good selection of satellite TV channels. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is a bit basic but does give you an assortment of both European and local dishes. The Indian restaurant which opens in the evening is one of the best I've ever eaten then. The Jim was basic and unfortunately the running machine treadmill was loose and couldn't be used. The bike also did not work when I was there. If you need a taxi the hotel could organise one very easily, the one I got was very good and I used him for several days.

    « Spotless & friendly »

    I have written before about this establishment. I booked in yesterday with no notice - fortunately they were able to accommodate me. Spotless rooms - as is the norm! Very spacious & comfortable. I had a non-smoking room and was moved immediately upon request b The staff were friendly, helpful and concerned throughout. Any issues are immediately resolved. This hotel has benefited greatly due to the blood, sweat & tears invested by a very dedicated management team. A couple of minor issues still to be resolved but these will not impact on your stay. A very pleasant evening.

    « Nice large and clean rooms »

    Have been very happy to stay here. The rooms are large and clean, the service of the staff good, and the breakfast is good. The rates are reasanoble so I can recommend to stay here. Distances to other restaurants is fairly short.

    « Best western DAR - Oyster Bay »

    The rooms of the hotel were upto the standards of best western plus. They were spacious and very clean with all the amenities. Also the hotel has an Indian restaurant Moti Mahal serving good vegetarian and non veg Indian and Chinese food. The breakfast was very bad needs a lot of improvement. The hotel is in Oyster Bay Area, away from the city area for business travellers.

    « Large and lovely rooms »

    We ended up here by mistake but turned out to be a great find. The rooms are absolutely Magnificat. It's located next to a small craft market and absolutely convenient. Slipway is only a tuktuk ride away, plus several restaurants are across.

    « Best Hotel in Dar Es Salaam »

    I have traveled throughout Africa and this hotel has the best staff and customer service was off the chart. Everyone was very professional and courteous right when I arrived and departed. Made me feel like I was at home

    « Reasonably priced hotel for business »

    I had a great experience at this hotel!The rooms were very spacious, modern and comfortable!!!This hotel was totally comparable with other Best Westerns in the U.S and globally!The workers were very professional and attentive!The prices were renegotiate!

    « not worth the price at all »

    i stayed there one night in March this year . the hotel is very expensive and cannot offer the price range that you can book on internet. no breakfast included. No swimming pool also, and it takes ages to pay and receive a bill. moreover , the lights were not working properly in my room and only one power plug was available, for 130$ a night, find an another hotel!!!!

    « Pleasant stay »

    This is a very nice hotel with all the amenities that you would expect...the staff is wonderful and very accommodating. The rooms are spacious and modern and the beds are very comfortable. The only improvements needed would be a pool and better functioning gym equipment. The hotel restaurant has wonderful food and an expansive menu. You can get Chinese and North American food there as well. Good choice for business options. There are many other restaurants nearby the hotel. Coco beach is also within walking distance.

    « practical and comfortable for business »

    This hotel is very practical and functional for business travellers. Well situated; spacious and clean rooms; good service; usually good internet connections. It is in no way however a "romantic" place: not by the beach, view on a car park. This being said, the price is very reasonable compared to the Dar es Salaam market rate. I have stayed here several times and never been disappointed.

    « Adequate for a business trip »

    The rooms are great and the service is good provided you find the English speaking staff. Wifi is fast and easy to use. Hotel needs to upgrade their water supply. Water pressure extremely low which makes showering that much longer. Newly opened cafe downstairs should offer a wider variety of food. They have a limited menu and there is only so much Indian food you can eat which is offered by the restaurant downstairs. MotiMahal offers average indian food. Dishes are not individually made. Meat is pre-cooked kebab style and just added to the curry of your choice.

    « Spacious rooms and good service »

    I have stayed in other hotels in the same location so when I was booked in Best Western I was a bit skeptical. Surprisingly it was a very pleasant hotel with good spacious rooms. The service was excellent as well. The staff were very friendly and polite. There were a few occasions when the WIFI kept dropping but overall good experience.

    « Good Hotel »

    I was there for business for one week and that was my first time on the African continent. I had lots of apprehension for that trip but I must say that I was quite impressed with the hotel. Can't find negative stuff to describe, the room was nice, service ok, food ok, and most of all very friendly personnel Had a nice stay there :)

    « Good rooms, with a good location for both the beach and local amenities »

    This hotel is ideally situated within Oyster Bay and is conveniently placed for both the beach as well as local restaurants, cafés, and shops. For those on a budget, local bajajis, or tuk-tuks are available outside the hotel, in addition to the taxi service provided by the hotel to get to these venues. Within the hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean with plenty of hot water as well as functioning and effective air conditioning. A wide choice of TV channels are available, as well as a filled, if slightly pricey mini-bar fridge. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel.

    « Top Notch Business Hotel »

    This hotel was booked with some skepticism due to the varied reviews and the low cost, and as we approached the hotel, my hopes were low. I needn't have worried as once inside the secure hotel facility, everything was top notch. The staff were friendly and awesome, the rooms were huge and clean and the WiFi was excellent. The only negative was the noise from the air con, but this is Africa and it's a minor issue as they can always be turned off. All in all, a highly recommended hotel in Dar Es Salaam.

    « Amazing Service, Great Rooms, Good Location »

    While this hotel is not on the shore, the rooms and service more than made up for the not ideal (but still very good) location. First of all, the rooms are spacious, clean, and elegant. The bathroom and shower were excellent and their is controllable central AC, as well as a balcony. More importantly, the service was excellent. We stayed here for a couple of days after safari and before going home to New York City. Our flight home was at 11:00 pm, while checkout is 11:00 am. Not only did they store our luggage for the day so that we could go out, but they ALSO gave us access to a shower, with use of toiletries and towels, before we left for the airport, no questions asked. This was an enormous difference maker as we spent the next 20 hours flying, and having a shower before really made that livable. I would highly recommend this hotel based on the service alone. First class staff and management.

    « Best Western DAR »

    The hotel caters for the Indian community only, evident in the menu, all Indian food, whilst I love Indian food, I travel continuously and sometimes stay in the same hotel for 10 to 15 days at a time, lack of menu is an issue. The hotel smells damp and the showers are typical of hotels in DAR, no one thinks to clean the shower heads, hence a dance is required to get wet. The bar area is similar to that found in small businesses, basic and unwelcoming An unpleasant stay, Best Western Coral beach is far better

    « Nsude Bartholomew »

    Staff were great, air conditioning was perfect from the heat outside, Breakfast was great too. Could ask for anything anytime of the day and it was never too much!!! I will be staying there again! Thank you Staff!!!

    « Great Stay »

    This is more of a business hotel (no pool, no outdoor area), but it was excellent and the staff was great. The room was very large, clean and comfortable. It was close to places we needed to go to and it was also close to the beach and to the Oyster Bay Shopping Mall.

    « Good Hotel, not so good location »

    The room I had was big, very big and comfortable. The staff was probably the friendliest staff I have ever seen in a hotel - everyone polite and smiling and just happy. TV, when it came it was good and internet was the same. There were some minor issues while I was there with the internet and the cable TV, but they didn't detract from the enjoyment of the hotel. Breakfast was good, served by very friendly staff - Did I say they were friendly?? The were!! The breakfast was a combination of Indian, English, African, and continental - so there was something for everyone. my only complaint was it wasn't well stocked for breakfast. Big Tip - If you like Indian - eat at the attached restaurant.

    « Nice Hotel in Dar »

    In general the hotel was very nice. Staff ready to serve you at every moment. I did request an adapter to plug in my laptop or camera. The guy at the front desk cant find one. So he asked my room # and in less than 5 minutes somebody was knocking my door with the adapter on hand It is what I call good costumer service. will take it to adviser future visitors coming from America to bring an adapter since here A/c is 220 v is standard rather 110 we see in America, There is a nearby grocery store were can buy anything you like in case it is need. I got good, good ice cream bar, juice and tea. Coco beach is very closed too.

    « Business Hotel »

    This is my second stay at the Best Western Plus Peninsula. First time I picked it because of location, and second time I went back purely because of the first experience. Affordable, clean, renovated, friendly staff and free WiFi. It is close to the rest of the restaurants on the Peninsula. Only complaint is that the Bar service in the evenings is very very very slow. We waited for 2 nights in a row almost 20-25min to get our drinks. Other than that, a good stay.

    « Business hotel in Oyster Bay »

    This is very good and well managed business hotel. Staff are very friendly and service oriented. Rooms are clean and big with seating area. Located in close proximity of restaurants, shops and banks. Beach is in walking distance. The sport bar is a great addition.

    « Generally Good »

    The hotel is actually fairly well located in Oyster Bay which is an upper class area of Dar Es Salaam. It is a 5 minute walk to Coco Beach and there are restaurants and a grocery store in the area. Food is expensive in Tanzania. The restaurants at the hotel provided good food although selections were limited. The main restaurant is Indian and Indian Chinese and the cafe is more western. The breakfast is good although a little disorganized. Staff in the hotel are very nice. My room was quite large, very quiet clean and comfortable. There were taxis and drivers available to take you places and you will need one if you go to the downtown area. I don't think it safe to go out at night and hookers hang outside the gate and are a nuisance. Overall very good. Only problem was the hotel has no city maps.

    « business hotel »

    A very spacious, quiet and well equipped room. Friendly staff, great service, good working environment. At the ground floor / behind lobby is a wonderful Indian restaurant, Moti Mahal. Except for world class Indian dishes a varied breakfast buffet and continental meals are served here. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a very comfortable, business hotel.

    « Excellent hotel »

    Wide and comfortable rooms. A high level service, a permanent care for your comfort, everything running fine in the rooms and common parts of the hotel. Internet working fine in all parts of the hotel. An experience to renew.

    « Satisfied with my stay »

    The employees at the reception, namely Elisabeth, her colleague and Emmanuel, Georgia in the Restaurant, the gentleman at the Bar downstairs and the girl doing my room were all very nice people. They made the difference to my stay and I will recommend that anybody contacts them.

    « Good hotel for business travellers »

    I enjoyed my week in this hotel. The rooms were truly magnificent, for once I have no complaints in this department. They are very large, with ample space and furniture typically not found in a hotel room. Everything in the room worked as it should have and small things pleased me such as ample number of power outlets, an air conditioner that worked well, but did not blow directly onto the bed, good wifi reception and speed, comfortable bed. More than enough bottled water was supplied to fulfill my needs. Bathrooms were large, clean and modern, with more than enough hot water. My only criticism of the rooms were the prices of the beverages in the mini-bar, which were charged in dollars and grossly overpriced. The same drink in the mini-bar cost almost double compared to ordering it at the coffee-shop below. Rooms I score 9/10, with the mini-bar preventing full marks. Dining experience was a mixed bag. The coffee shop had a limited menu and I only had one experience with it and then opted not to go back. Ordered fish and chips, with a beverage to be delivered to room service. The meal was delivered without the beverage, although it was on the bill. Also no tartar sauce came with it as indicated on the menu, neither any other condiments that I requested. The meal itself was below par, tasting as if both the fries and fish were fried in old oil. I then moved to the Indian style restaurant on site, where the food and service proved to be very good and I enjoyed every meal. Breakfasts were good and a fair section was available. Another suggestion to the hotel would be to look at improving meal offerings beyond the predominantly Indian menu. I personally love Indian food, but after 6 days, it became a bit monotonous even for me. Location I found very good. No views, but very close to Coco beach should you wish to go for a walk or run. Overall a good experience and I would definitely choose the hotel again on future visits to Dar es Salaam.

    « Nice hotel with large rooms »

    An overall a fine hotel in Dar. I liked the oversized rooms which were clean and large with a sitting area. The restaurant staff were very polite and well trained, unfortunately the front desk was a little less friendly and helpful. Gym was okay but quite limited with only 1 treadmill and a broken elliptical machine and only a couple free weights. The lobby area was comfortable with plenty of seating and a TV. Wifi was consistent throughout my stay.

    « Average hotel, OK for short stays. »

    Room is large, bathroom is nice. Internet quality differs from room to room. Cleaning ladies do a great job and room is spotless after cleaning. Breakfast is poor quality, could be a lot better. Most of staff memebers are very nice and plesent. Some are not. I have seen with my own eyes that (what someone wrote below) other guest of similar color like locals are not treated equally like european/nort american guests.


    I will assume the hospitality was bad simply because Tanzanians don't like Kenyans. I won't comment much on that because i was treated very well in a different hotel in Mbeya. That said, the hotel was really classy with very good space. I wouldn't complain. Internet was working but the signal in 214 kept disappearing.

    I stayed here for the second time (first time when it was Atlantis). The rooms are nice and spacious, with a fantastic shower and super comfortable pillows. The service was excellent and extremely friendly which really makes the difference! All in all I had a really good stay and would definitely consider coming back.

    « Magic rooms! »

    Again conference. This awesome venue assisted with my 230 international delegates. Not one single complaint. Outstanding rooms. Beautiful breakfasts & Moti Mahal. Had an awesome wine tasting here with French ambassador. Very impressive. Will be back!

    « Great place and great people »

    I got to the hotel and it was fully booked, but the staff was very helpful and managed to find a room for me. As it was last minute booking, I was surprised to see that the room was much better than I expected. It was large, airy, well-air-conditioned, clean and at a very fair cost. The WiFi reception was very strong and as a business traveller that was very helpful for me. Room service was also prompt and the waitresses very cheerful. The Indian restaurant on ground floor has excellent food and the staff there very efficient and always smiling. They were able to help me with Indian food selection and even went out of their way to find out how my stay was. The slight let down was Front Desk staff, but a lady called Monic was very cheerful and very helpful, making the stay worthwhile. The hotel manager was also a great guy. I will definitely stay here again.
