“Review Business trip”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I stayed at Golden Tulip for a business trip in June 2014. The service is sometimes very confusing, they forget things and not always put the customer first. They add charges for everything. The location by the sea is nice but it is not walking distance to restaurants and malls.

Overall, I will stay at another hotel next time.

Stayed at this hotel for four nights for a conference. The outside and common areas of the hotel are quite striking with a “Taj Mahal” theme. Check in was pretty easy. The rooms and hallways are really worn and in need of a facelift. The TV was nice with a good selection of channels. The shower was poor with a “luke warm trickle” instead of a “hot shower.” My second day, the door to my room stopped working requiring a worker to enter my neighbors room to climb into my room via the balcony to get the door open. After a bit of a hassle, the manager personally switched my room. Everyone was very apologetic and professional.

Breakfast had many choices. I was really impressed with the lunch buffet as part of the conference. The pool is really nice right on the ocean with a beautiful view. It is pretty deep though a bit slimy on the bottom. The pool is easily the highlight of the hotel.

After having another lodging experience in Dar that was superior yet in the same price range, I would recommend exploring all of your lodging options before settling on the Golden Tulip.

I have been a regular client at Golden Tulip using their pool, restaurant and other facilities for meetings. I have been impressed with the consistently high quality service and the professionalism of their staff. The setting of this hotel is quite unique, located a stop a cliff overlooking dar es salaam. Great place to conduct business and to work out.

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
