8.2.Very good.
  • 4.0.Fair


    the hotel was ok. the room was pleasant enough, a bit dated. i was upgraded to a nicer room, which was nice. however, the party that was going on upstairs till the wee hours of the morning made me wish i’d not accepted the upgrade. the front desk personnel were extremely nice and efficient. i got laundry done there, it was in excess of twenty usd for half a load. it came back wet and none too clean.

    Convenient and clean Dar hotel

    Convenient hotel for Dar overnight! Easy Walking distance from ferry and not far to the airport (albeit we travelled early in the morning so there was no traffic). Pasta in the in house restaurant was also surprisingly tasty! Also really appreciated staff help early in the morning with getting a taxi. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again!

    Awesome staff and views!

    Very convenient location in a very walkable spot. The staff are all very pleasant, friendly, and helpful. The breakfast is very nice and the staff are fantastic. The views are amazing! The room was a 3-bedroom apartment, very spacious, but somewhat dated.

    Don't recommend the restaurant

    We, by mistake booked the room for our stay without breakfast so we paid for one day to eat at the hotel buffet for $12 USD each. It was the most underwhelming breakfast. Most of the food was finished and no urgency to refill. My husband asked the staff to make us omelettes and they were were brought out to us...there was no sign saying they have that option, it was by chance he asked. We also had dinner there the night earlier because we checked in late. Their special was buy one pizza get the second free. I tried their house special and it was awful. The mushrooms were from a can, the chicken was dry and the calamari just didn't taste right. After that we didn't eat at the restaurant and ventured outside to eat local food. Now the good stuff, the room is nice, we had the corner room so the views were beautiful of downtown Dar Es Salaam. The AC was good kept the room cool throughout.

    Great hotel. What's even better than the hotel is the caliber of the staff: polite, courteous, incredibly helpful and caring - that goes for everyone from the General Manager all the way to the Housekeeping team, the Food & Bev Team, the Front Desk. Strongly recommend this hotel.

    Review golden tulip

    The hotel is nice, bit old or at least our room needed a bit of makeover specially the bath-floor. Also should be noted that the hotel does not service or allows the use of alcoholic beverages. For the rest fine hotel. Last note; please always agree on your taxi fares in advance. Or ask the service staff to help you.
