Fodor's Expert Review Peninsula Hotel

Haille Selassie Rd., Oyster Bay, Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Recently taken over by Best Western Plus and renamed the Peninsula, this hotel is an excellent value with friendly staff and a decent on-site restaurant. Catering mostly to a business clientele, the rooms are spacious and smart, with comfortable beds and good showers and air-conditioning. There is a good business center, gym, and there are good restaurants and bars in nearby Oyster Bay. There is an enormous nightclub directly next door and on a Friday night if you have a room facing the street side by the gas station you will battle to get a decent night's sleep.
