Fodor's Expert Review Courtyard Hotel

​Seaview Ocean Rd., Oyster Bay, Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Fodor's Choice

With traditional Arabic wooden balconies and glass-stained windows and a lush courtyard, this hotel feels a lot like a welcoming riad. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city into this a mini-haven where staff cannot do enough for you. Rooms have many of the amenities of a five-star hotel—air-conditioning, plush bedding, and ample space, all facing inward toward a delightful coutryard that resembles an Arabian fairy tale at night. The café's cakes are wonderful and the restaurant does amazing Indian-style dinners and lunches. The fish fingers (which are not traditional fish fingers as you might imagine them) are lunch and/or snack favorites.
