This hotel made me felt like I was home, as the staff did everything possible to make my stay pleasant. It was my first visit to Dar on business. I love the quite nature of the location far from the noise of the city,though it's far from the airport, as you have to cross the city from the airport to... More

Protea seafood platter has great variety with much to love. Get it with Kilimanjaro lager, white wine, or fruit punch. Really good! A favorite when in Dar-es-Salaam. The service was excellent and the outdoor patio with an adjustable speed overhead fan was comfy. What's not to like here!

We stayed at Protea Oyster bay for the second time this year, and even though the room was worse, this still is a good hotel with clean rooms, really delicious food and warm and welcoming staff. This time we had to stay in a double-bedroom apartment and it was obviously dated. The furniture looked older than in my previous room,... More

I liked this place for a small group of people to work in a quiet environment and deliver outputs. Semi-botanical in the suburb of Dar es Salaam. For those who want to relax a small swimming pool will cool you down during break times. I had no opportunity to assess the rooms or apartments

Protea hotel is the average hang out place in Dar. Very small area. Not much ambiance. Food is ok. Nice coffee area near the swimming pool. You can nice breeze near the swimming pool. We had business meeting in this place.

I visit Dar Es Salaam often and found one hotel I will definitely return to. The Protea Hotel, Oyster Bay is a pleasant place to stay. Friendly and very helpful staff. They really go out of their way to make things pleasant. Nice spacious rooms and best of all - fast Wi-Fi.

Perfect for a longer stay there the studio - rooms offer you more personality than a regular hotel room. The rooms are spacious and the bed more than comfortable. Breakfast is tasty and there's a good variety.
