Golden Tulip Dar Es Salaam
Ranked #55 of 97 Hotels in Dar es Salaam
Reviewed 4 August 2013

The Internet connection was good. Reception was not very impressive, they had no record of us staying there nor that we paid in full. Service and food can be improved. Beautiful view and setting. They were busy with maintenance work at the building close to our room and it was a bit noisy, but understandable. The Hotel has beautiful large ground and open spaces, but a bit of TLC needed.

Had a awesome stay at this hotel. the View, the staff, the rooms and the service just made the stay memorable and delightful. I will recommend this hotel to one and all. Spend your time with family and friends here to have a awesome time.The staff are friendly and helpful, especially at reception and the service is amenable. If you've been on the road for days then The golden tulip is the ideal treat. If you want a very confortable base from which to navigate dar es salaam then this is right place to start.

've stayed in dar 5 times now and The golden tulip is the perfect retreat and my favourite hotel. The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. The beds are a good size and there all the mod cons (including free wifi and the usual toiletry treats). The breakfast buffet has pretty much every choice you could want - continental, full english, copious amounts of fresh fruit . The staff are friendly and helpful, especially at reception and the service is amenable. If you've been on the road for days then The golden tulip is the ideal treat. If you want a very confortable base from which to navigate dar es salaam then this is right place to start.
