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

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...

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,...

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.

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...
