              They charged $115 for which it is not worth as rooms are too small . Room service is very slow , room accessories are not upto mark. More like a service apartment then a hotel as it house commercial offices residential houses and conference rooms in the same building

              Note that the impressive skyscraper that is portrayed for this hotel is not belong for the hotel only. The hotel itself occupies only few floors on the top and therefore actually quite small. Nevertheless, that is good hotel fairly similar to any European hotel of the same star rank. Breakfast was excellent. The only drawback is mediocre bar where alcohol is banned, even beer. I'm not sure why is it so because it is not total alcohol bar in the country/city - there is a bar on the street nearby.

              In our stay we had 3 very negative moments: 1 - At breakfast, we asked for cappuccino and espresso and a few hours later a employee presented us with a bill and said only filter coffee was included. It's not only strange that those drinks were not included but also that no one has mentioning we had to paid them (when we asked for it). 2 - At the hotel restaurant (the same place of breakfast), the bill comes on local currency. We wanted to pay with dollars and the employee said the amount without making any kind of conversion. After making the conversion on our own, we came to the conclusion that he was asking for more 10 dollars than what it was supposed to. 3 - When checking out, they tried to include expenses that had been already paid

              You had to heat the hot water tank before you had hot water to take a shower- and it was a very short shower provided you were expecting warm water. Nothing actually wrong other than that- the food was barely basic. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I did not like the location at all. Just not my idea of a hotel. I won't stay there again. The internet did work well.

              .”

              My husband and I are living in Zanzibar. We go from time to time to Dar to deal with embassy or business issues. This time we stayed at the Gran hotel and residences since it very conveniently located. Unfortunately, the experience was pretty disappointing. First of all, the place is very difficult to find because nobody seems to know it. Even our old taxi driver who knows every corner of that city circled around for a long time until someone told him that its the old golden tulips hotel. The new owners did not even change the sign boards yet. The rooms itself are okay but not well maintained. In our room the shower fell of the wall when opening the tap, the showerhead was full of calcium and did not work, as well as the water heater. Also, at the time we stayed there only one of the two elevators operational. Thus we had to wait forever to go up and down from the 19th floor. The food in the restaurant fire is really overprized. We paid 69,000 TSH for two people for not properly cooked French fries and a small piece of not well cooked fish. However, the most annoying part is that we did not sleep at all. The hotel is next to a big drinking hole that played very loud music until 3am in the morning. to wrap it up, we would never again pay 175 USD for this 2 star place. better to spend a little extra and enjoy the Serena or Southern Sun.

              Das Hotel erstreckt sich über die oberen Stockwerke eines Hochhauses in der Stadtmitte von Dar Es Salam. Von der Fähranlegestelle sind es ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß, so dass sich ein Taxi kaumt lohnt. Der Fußweg zum Konferenzzentrum ist ebenso weit entfernt. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Als Nachteil empfand ich, dass es nur ein kleines Bistro als Teil des Hotels gibt. Es befindet sich jedoch ein indisches Restaurant im Erdgeschoss des Gebäudes (ohne alkoholische Getränke). Für die letzte Übernachtung schloss sich noch meine Familie an, und wir sind in ein sehr großes Familienappartment umgezogen. Am Abend gab es ein Dinner mit Buffet, Grill und Live-Musik auf der Dachterrasse - sehr schön!

              Gerne wieder!”

              Ich habe mehrere Tage in Golden Tulip verbracht, zunächst alleine, dann in der Famly Suite mit Teil meiner Familie. Auch wenn die Fotos von der Website etwas beschönigen (z.B. Größe des Zimmers mit King Size-Bett, Badezimmer), habe ich mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Hotel ist von der Fährstation sehr gut auch zu Fuß erreichbar. Zum Konferenzzentrum ist es nicht weit. Das Personal war sehr angenehm. Im EG gibt es ein unabhängiges Restaurant mit indischener / asiatischer Küche, ansonsten muss man schauen, wohin man geht. Alkoholische Getränke werden nicht ausgeschenkt. Die Dachterrasse bietet einen sehr schönen Überblick. Der Barbecue-Abend dort ist empfehlenswert. Die Famly Suite bietet viel Platz, auch noch für mind. 5 Personen.
