"Comfortable stay at the Peninsular"

30/07/2018

Best Western Plus offered clean, comfortable, and spacious accommodations, prompt service, and a delicious breakfast variety. The hotel offered a complimentary shuttle transporting guests around the neighboring areas like Slipway and Sea Cliff village. We also had the option to spend the day at it's sister hotel, Best Western Coral Beach, where we were able to relax and enjoy their beautiful pool and beach. The gym was a little small, but the exercise machines were adequate for a short stay. If you're looking for comfort, ease of stay, and friendly service, this is a good option.

Little things make a big difference and in this Best Western, starting from the cookie jar, the spiced tea and the friendly smile you feel home from the first moment. BF is more than adequate and they cater for special requests. And where do you get a fresh coconut ?? Next time I will give one more star if the sort out WiFi in the Gym and the slipping belt of the treadmill .. (little wink .. Balton can fix this).

A warm welcome in reception to a huge room with all the required amenities. The king size bed is comfortable and everything is maintained and works, Nice sized bathroom with a big walk in shower, The only negative there is that the hot water is extremely limited. Drinks in the bar were fun with debates with the bar men. The breakfast is fair and the service is good. the shuttle will drop you off in the area. While all the staff were extremely friendly a special shout out to Elizabeth and Happiness who found a smile in everything she did in the restaurant.

"Degree Of Probity And Honesty"

10/07/2018

Hello every body, I want to share a probity and very honesty situation I experienced with all of the crew members. 1 month ago approximately I left the room on the way to the air port to my resident country after long amazing vacation in Tanzania, When I reached the air port it was 15 minutes remain for check in, then i recognize that I left a huge amount of money in the safe of the room. With hand shaking I called to the reception to explain what happened, within 1 minute they call me back said all the amount in their hands and it will be safe until my local body will come to collect it in a few days, and that's exactly what happened and I received 1 week later all the money back. I'm so so so thankful for all of the crew members, of course I'll return to enjoy Best Western Plus Peninsula Hotel, Number one in service and Loyalty!

Is just a good hotel, with two simple restaurants. The rooms are pretty nice, quite and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is not that much choices of food but is good. There is shuttle to and from the airport but for an additional cost. Didn't stay long so can not describe much.

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.

23/04/2018

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.

16/04/2018

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.

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.

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.

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!

19/11/2017

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.

"Surprisingly good find"

07/11/2017

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"

25/10/2017

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"

28/11/2016

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

"Just okay"

12/11/2016

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.

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.

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.

"A short but enjoyable stay"

05/10/2016

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.

"Is this the worst hotel in Dar?"

1
12/09/2016

Probably not, but the worst I stayed in. Booked and paid two rooms by booking.com 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.

01/09/2016

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.

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.

This hotel is very practical and functional for business travellers. Well situated; spacious and clean rooms; good service; usually good internet connections.

30/05/2016

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.

"Top Notch Business Hotel"

01/05/2016

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"

5
13/04/2016

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Good hotel for business travellers"

01/02/2016

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.

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.

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.

"MODERN HOTEL POOR HOSPITALITY"

16/01/2016

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 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.
