Best Western Plus Peninsula Hotel
Ranked #12 of 96 Hotels in Dar es Salaam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2013

I have been a regular at Atlantis from the day the hotel opened its doors.
The rooms are very spacious, the staff are great in the front office, Restaurant, and rooms.
The internet is fast and reliable.
The breakfast used to be the best especially the omellete. This has however had a downward trend. You hardly enjoy anymore.
The food/menu is not extensive and you dont get lots of African dishes.
Neighbourhood is ok though a bit noisy over the weekends when Maisha club next door comes to life.

I stayed a couple of times since May and i must say that hotel has
1.Good spacious rooms,
2.Very comfortable Beds,
3.Nice sofa set to lounge around.
4.The wifi is very strong and assists fast browsing.
5.There is a coffee kettle with adequate Coffee, Tea, Sugar sachets.
6.The bath room though spacious let me down a bit.
7.All the rooms are NON smoking so smokers will have to smoke in the Balcony.
8.A Night Club called Maisha is next door as is a Supermarket.
9. Ample car parking space.
10.There is a restaurant called Cafe Dolce with a very limited Menu.Specially for a Vegetarian Indian like me.
11.The staff of the hotel well trained and polite.
12. No Bar to drink and the kitchen has nothing for the late nighters.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from Main road where vehicles pass all through night.

My business trip was extended and I needed to stay on longer. The reception staff were having a hard time finding space for me to stay on. I then called hotel manager Louis D'Costa. My problem was fixed in an instant. This really made my business stay much easier. I am very happy with this level of service!

I stayed here for a week whilst on business in Dar es Salaam. The room was very spacious but the shower did let it down somewhat. The menu in the restaurant is not very extensive but adequate. There is a night club next door and my room was on top of it (103) the room was changed without fuss the next morning , hence choose your room as if you are the wrong end of the building you will require ear plugs. There is not a bar in the hotel but you can order a drink in the restaurant.

The Atlantis Hotel in Dar es Salaam has very nice décor and well furnished rooms. The main negative is that there is no Bar, or any facilities to purchase drinks or snacks after 22h00. This hotel is best suited to short stays.

I stayed at Atlantis during the Easter break! The rooms were very spacious and the environment of the room was too good! I stayed here just for a night and the experience was very good! The staff were very professional and they seemed to be enjoying their job. However I was disappointed with the quality of the food at the restaurant, for a hotel like Atlantis the food should be much better. Although I must state that the ambience of the restaurant was top notch! I also felt the gym was under equipped! On a side note the wifi was brilliant! Overall I would highly recommend this hotel!
