WHERE TO STAY IN DAR ES SALAAM
Some hotels in Dar es Salaam offer you great views of the Indian Ocean, and others might offer you its proximity to the city’s commercial center, a factor that is much suited for a business traveler. These factors are strategic location facts while variability of services needs to be questioned when planning your trip e.g. some Dar es Salaam hotels claim a luxury “4, 5 or even 6 star experiences”.
Since there is no regulated and proper international ranking hotel standard system in Tanzania, these self-acclaimed star rankings are ever questionable. AfricanMecca proposes the Hotel Tier Ranking for Tanzania to guide you appropriately in making an informed decision for your stay in Dar es Salaam based on your needs and preferences. Go for The Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam, the Kilimanjaro that is a part of an international chain of hotels and is the ultimate “Tier 1 Luxury City Based Accommodation”, if that is your preference.
The Oyster Bay Hotel is another extravagance boutique hotel that offers you excellent service, great cuisine and first-rate rooms in the posh sea view suburbs of Msasani. It is also your ideal choice if you are looking for a homely luxury accommodation experience with a few rooms – 8 only, and also awesome personalized services.
Guests looking for Tier 2 Deluxe accommodations can choose from hotels such as Hotel Sea Cliff and Serena Dar es Salaam Hotel. The former is located on the edge of a rock face and offers you sweeping tranquiller views of the Indian Ocean. It has a separate selection of Village Rooms – separate from the main hotel that mirrors a Tier 3 Value accommodation experiences but with access to the facilities offered by the main hotel – a total hybrid accommodation on offer.
If you are looking for Dar accommodations close to the city’s hub but also good value for money, you might want to choose Tier 3 accommodations such as Southern Sun Dar es Salaam, Protea Dar es Salaam Courtyard etc. The Hotel Slipway is part of a complete recreational complex in the ocean facing suburbs of Dar es Salaam, and offers you not just comfortable stay overs at economical rates but is a complete family entertainment destination complete with boutique shops, restaurants, fresh juice and ice cream parlors (read more on when is the best time to visit Dar es Salaam).
