Dar Es Salaam – Best places to stay in Dar Es Salaam

Dar Es Salaam – Where to stay


Dar es Salaam is the commercial centre of Tanzania even though it was stripped of it's title as the capital. It is still the most cosmopolitan city in Tanzania and is a funny mix of calm Indian Ocean relaxation, and bustling enterprise. Not a must see on a safari, but an interesting pit stop.

Dar Es Salaam – Best Places To Stay In Dar Es Salaam



Oyster Bay

Oyster Bay is the finest place to stay in Dar es Salaam.  There are only 8 rooms, unlike the typically large hotel airports in Dar.  The food and service is amazing.  The rooms are massive and a welcome break from a safari or long haul flight.  The Oyster Bay is not cheap at all and it’s only used as a one or two night stop, so if you are looking to save then we recommend one of the larger hotel airports like the Royal Palm.
 

Serena Dar es Salaam

In most cases you would only use the Serena Dar es Salaam as a one night stop because your international flight details require it. Dar es Salaam does not offer much and therefore a hotel with all mod cons, in close proximity to the town centre (and golf course) is a welcome break from the town’s somewhat hectic atmosphere, however it does make a good jumpipn poin to any Tanzania Safari

Spend as little time as possible in Dar unless there are reasons to stay longer and the Dar es Salaam Serena is a great value hotel that serves a good purpose.  

There are other options that could save you little money but the standards drop quite significantly.  If you want to go all out then stay at the Oyster Bay Hotel. In most cases you would only use Dar es Salaam as a one night stop because your international flight details require it.

Hotel Slipway

Hotel Slipway is ideally located just 7km from the Dar es Salaam city centre on the Msasani peninsula, right on the Indian Ocean overlooking Msasani Bay. It offers best value for money accommodation in this upmarket neighbourhood.
