Our family ended up at this hotel by a coincidence (we had a reservation to another hotel in Stone Town, but our agency back home had booked wrongly)
So when we arrived , we were a bit unhappy. BUT, we ended up being so satisfied:)

Rooms were great with lovely beds, and the bathroom was clean. The roof top restaurant was so lovely - we enjoyed the sunset with a freshly made passion fruit juice (no alcohol in the hotel) and the restaurant was really good (also the breakfastbuffe ) and quite cheap.
The staff ,both cleaning, reception, and in the restaurant, were smiling,serviceminded and helpful. We enjoyed the pool as well. (a sign for the tourists about "please use the shower before entering the pool" would be great).
The hotel is located close to the harbour and 10 minutes walking to several restaurants.. We can only recomend this hotel to everybody going to Stone Town. We will be back:)

The Golden Tulip is perfectly located should you wish to take a boat across to Prison Island and visit the Giant Turtles. Also very well located for exploring Stonetown's markets.

The rooms were decent - though the hot water in the shower didn't last too long.

Unfortunately, the room service closed over half an hour ahead of schedule - however as we had leave to head to the airport early in the morning, the front desk was kind enough to arrange a breakfast to-go waiting for us upon check out.

The hotel staff are amazing the rooms are just okay. The food options were not much but the fish kebabs were delicious. Has a beautiful pool for you to relax. The location is great though. I think they can work on revamping the bathrooms.

We had a great stay here! Very central location to travel in and around stone town. The transfers to and from the airport were well organized and timely. The rooms were clean and spacious. Every request was well taken care of. Highly recommended.
