“WORSE CHOICE to stay in Dar !”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

low level of service, poor maintenance, the hotel DOES NOT seem to be part of the Golden Tulip Chain hotels, if they do- the standard are definitely not !

wouldn't recommend anyone to stay, many other options with better value.

Room Tip: Avoid by any means !

the income hall, large swimming pool and view on the bay were impressive, but the rooms were less well maintained and rather used. Food is OK but nothing special, and the restaurant was rather empty, resulting in a cheerless atmosphere. Nevertheless, staff was very friendly, and all areas of the hotel were clean. one night there was a party going on on the terrein next door, of which the noise could be hindering to some guests.

Golden Tulip Hotel is one of the Best hotels in Dar es Salaam.
It worth every cent i've payed.
The rooms are very tidy,clean and with all the amenities we need, so we can have a good and relaxing stay.
The view over the Indian ocean is breathtaking, Its amazing and very relaxing staring at the sea from the balcony, I miss that already.
All the staff is very kind and helpful in all the matters.
I would definetely recommend this hotel to everybody Who wants to travel to dar es salaam.

I have enjoyed my stay so far at Golden Tulip Dar. I had visited Dar earlier in the year and stayed at a different place which was very ran down. Golden Tulip is very well maintained, rooms are clean, spacious and quiet for rest or even work. The swimming pool is also well maintained and has a very good view of the Indian ocean.

The meals I have had in the hotel so far are good but expansion of the menu would help. There is not much variety.

Overall, I would recommend the hotel to vissitors and especially if you enjoy swimming, it's the perfect place to be.
