We spent four nights at the Protea Courtyard, and were delighted by the excellent food, attentive service, clean and comfortable room, and lush, peaceful ambience of the hotel. The level of staff supervision and efficiency is exceptionally high. The wifi worked well, the rooms were sufficiently spacious with room to unpack. The breakfast spread offers a wide variety of fresh...

The place is very cozy and the staff are really very good. The nice thing is that the hotel is very old but in tip top condition and it is really cute and cozy. Next time I will go to Dar-es-Salaam I will definetly go back there.

Stayed here while on a business trip. Room was quiet and clean. Very good food. Friendly and helpful staff. Small but adequate gym. Wifi was on and off but perhaps not a hotel problem. Would stay here again.

We recently stayed one night (prior to our safari) and really enjoyed the hotel. It was adorable. The restaurant on-site has good food and great service. I only wish there were an elevator - not because I'm lazy, but because hauling 40lb luggage up three stories is not easy. Most especially when the staff does two suitcases for you (we...

We stayed at the Courtyard for the last night of our weeklong stay in Tanzania, and it ended being an excellent endcap to our visit. We felt comfortable and welcomed, staff were polite and helpful, and the combination of well-kept rooms and pleasant atmosphere provided a much needed peacefulness. It is really too bad that the hotel is so far...

“My impression is that all rooms are more or less the same and all face the court yard so the only difference is what floor you are on.”
