“Welcoming, warm and comfortable”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I read the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor and glad I wasn't put off. This is an excellent hotel with great staff who are attentive, friendly and warm. I had two meals here, sitting out on the verandah and both were excellent. The first was the catch of the day with rice and vegetables - superb, and the second was a snack of fish fingers which were succulent and tasty. Fairly good free wifi, a nice infinity pool, great views of the Indian Ocean, crisp, clean, linen sheets and the rooms are keep spotlessly clean. Take no notice of the negative reviews, this is hotel is a Tanzanian triumph.

stayed here for 3 nights. Overall it was a very good experience. Rooms are big and spacies. Breakfast is awesome if it is free. Otherwise, not really worth the price; so many other good options. Bar area is nice. Location is great: within walking distance to many attractions.
wi fi speed was excellent.

but there is no gym and spa

Room Tip: always stays in second floor rooms

Started right at the reception desk at Golden Tulip Dar!! Very professional yet so charming and ever so helpful! The ambiance was almost unbelievable, rooms very tidy and I got the very best value for my money's worth (an extra day). Food was spectacular and the facilities were all world class. Looking forward already to my next visit!! The folks at this hotel really rock!!

i was in dar es salaam to attend a businees meet with my partner. I asked the my parner for some suggestion and they suggested golden tulip hotel. I was able to arrange an airport pickup and enjoyed my three day stay there.

The food on the Terrace hotel was excellent as was the ambiance watching the ocean from the room.

Service from the staff was very helpful and cordial. Morning breakfast had a nice variety of continental and fruits.

Overall it was a great stay for me and I hope to return again for another trip soon.

For sure I will come back for my next business trip.

Other than the dirty rooms, the lack of hot water, and a man I assume to be the hotel manager calling the room after 10pm and threatening to collect payment immediately half way through our stay, everything was wonderful.

Oh, except for that this is the only place in Dar es Salaam I used my Amex card to pay, and within 24 hours two fraudulent bookings for flights had been made using the card. I'm not going to make any direct accusations, but I'd be extremely careful using cards in this hotel. Frankly, there are several better hotels within a mile, so go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel!

A bit too much out of town if you have to have meetings there, but perfectly right if you need to attend a conference or several meetings in the residential area north of Dar. The most stunning are the undisturbed views onto the ocean with to the right in the far distance the (few) skyscrapers of Dar. Also the most beautiful pool area of Dar I think, surrounded by a big garden in which the largest marquee of Dar is standing. No wonder the place is a favorite with locals to have their wedding parties .... The rooms are good and just well enough maintained, but it is true that a general overall refurbishment "to put it back in full shape" is recommanded. Rooms are big and confortable, clean, fantastic airco ... everything works well, just not enough channels on TV and wifi sometimes a bit slow. A nice surprise is the restaurant on first floor : for breakfast it is just okay, nothing more, but we had two times lunch here and I must say I found the seafood soup and the grilled catch of the day very extraordinary, you do not expect that good food quality in a hotel. Be sure to go out in the evening, as it can be a bit of a boring place with no real bar. Airport pick up and transports around in the area or the city can be organised, just ask Manu one of the indian guys at reception, he is extraordinay, or Theodora the young greek biz development lady

Room Tip: there are two wings, take the wing on the side of the lobby where you have the reception
