Lovely service, comfortable beds, nice breakfast on beautiful terrace, fascinating neighborhood, nice pool and spa services, but most of all: the staff. Helpful, accommodating, and thoughtful. We were surprised with the area in front of the hotel, with the rough road and busy with parked cars, and a little dusty, but learned this is typical of the neighborhood, so no big deal. Super convenient to the ferry from Dar. Really nice experience.

Amazing Staff! Make you feel at home
I stayed at the Golden Tulip for 3 nights and was blown away by the service of the staff. They genuinely care about their guests. The rooftop restaurant was my absolute favourite spot in the hotel you can see all of stonetown from up there in addition to the islands that are just off the coast. I ate in the restaurant for breakfast and for dinner on multiple occasions and the food quality was excellent as was the presentation. Their Indian and Chinese selection for dinner is excellent. The hotel gives you vibes of an Indian palace especially with the wooden windows in the rooms and the framing art in the restaurant. The pool area was nicely landscaped and the pool Itself is well equipped. Highly recommend if staying in stonetown. This hotel is walking distance to many local attractions in addition to the food stalls at night which are delicious!
