Rooms are kept super clean and the service is excellent. No swimming pool which is a small problem. From a business man point of view excellent. Breakfast buffet is not the best, but then i didnt get chance to stay long or order exactly what i needed.

Managers and night staff are very unfriendly and unhelpful. Do not get caught with a smoking room on level one, they absolutely stink! A large group of prostitutes gathers outside every evening, and nothing done to get rid of them. Breakfast disappointing. Other hotels in Dar offer much better value and facilities for the money

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.

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.
