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.
