We spent a few days here as we traveled in and out of Dar Es Salaam. The staff were very nice and helpful including helping us locate and get our lost luggage just before we were about to fly out again. The building is older and the rooms reflect that. Smaller and somewhat dark. Bed Ok. It is located a...

The Protea Courtyard (as well as Amani Beach and Oysterbay) is one of the very few hotels that recycles! The manager doesn't just care about the guests, but also makes an effort with their carbon footprint. If you say at one of the Protea by Marriott Hotels, rest assured your waste is getting recycled and creating jobs.

We found this to be a nice hotel to spend a night before our flight home. The staff has been very helpful, and the rooms were of the good standard. We were impressed with the opportunity to have breakfast as early as we wanted, witht he choice of having it packed or served in the hotel. The only small problem...

Stayed here for a few nights whilst experiencing centre of Dar. Decent hotel and nice stay, but I would not recommend it if you like open spaces. The courtyard with the pool small but well-appointed garden with trees, which in the humidity of Dar are a blessing. Not much facilities around such as restaurants, most a taxi ride away. But...

Good little transit place to stay. Gladys (manager?) is great. She knows how to run a business. Arnold is very helpful, and the staff as a whole are great and caring. Thank you. The restaurant is pole pole (slow slow).

We're Marriott gold members, but the brand loyalty is not being rewarded in the Protea chain. We've stayed at (too) many Proteas in Africa, they are all disappointing, and you do not get the value for your dollar. I'm done being understanding. The food is mediocre (par for the course Protea). The room was a decent size but rather small....

I loved it, as a break away from the hustle and heat of Dar! Stayed here with a friend one weekend and felt very spoiled and relaxed afterwords. Beautiful rooms (bathrooms could be updated), great food. Pool was quite small but that was ok. Lovely feeling of luxury without outrageous price tag and great staff.
