Protea hotel Oysterbay Dar es Salaam is located outside the city centre of Dar es Salaam. Although there are two main streets nearby (Ali Hassan Mwinyi Road and Haile Selassie Road) the whole plot is very quiet and it is a nice and well-kept place as well.
We had one of the suites with a separate bedroom, a balcony and a kitchenette which contained everything you need to prepare some food by yourself.
The suite was very spacious, clean and quite cozy. Staying here means living in Dar es Salaam and not only sleeping in a hotel.
The breakfast buffet is o.k. I would call it average for hotels of this category, nothing to complain about, but nothing to be called extraordinary as well.
In the evening the restaurant offers quite
good food and drinks in a nice atmosphere. It is worth a visit anyway.
The whole staff was friendly, helpful and competent.
But comfort has its price. When you look at the location the prices for accommodation are pretty high, in spite of the available space in the rooms and in spite of all other positive things to be mentioned.
This concerns especially single travelers as the rates for single rooms are almost as high as those for double rooms.
However we had a very pleasant stay and that is why we can recommend this hotel all in all.
