Rooms of a good standard. Aircon works well. Good shower and I always had hot water. Restaurant serves an excellent lamb curry. Nice big pool. One negative is that the TV in the room has no English channel except for CNN and BBC - rest all in French. Free wifi - speed = fair.

In the overall it is a pleasant hotel and well situated for Business Purposes. I stayed at other hotels in Accra and it is a good hotel. However, I booked two weeks in advance to have a nice room but at the arrival (after a 20h journey between flights and Airports) me and other guest were stranded at the reception.... More

We were visiting Burkina Faso on a charity visit, and we needed a base which would provide us with reasonable accommodation, which was safe, and keep us healthy. This hotel is well placed to provide all of this, and we felt satisfied overall. The rooms were large and comfortable, with good air conditioning, which is essential for a good nights... More

This is a good standard hotel. It has a nice sized pool, children's pool and jacuzzi stle pool. The pool bar is fairly well stocked and you can either sit in shade or the sun. Plenty of chairs and loungers with 'beach huts if you need some shade. The hotel is very clean, and bedrooms are a good size. The... More

An upscale oasis for the weary traveler. Be warned, Burkina Faso is a French speaking country and so is this hotel! The staff are friendly and helpful but come prepared with your charades skills if you don't speak French. The rooms and dinning were excellent. Also not at the time of my visit there was no gym and no ATM... More

The hotel has recently been renovated, bedrooms and showers are modern, the staff is helpful, breakfast is very nice and offers plenty of choices. Huge pool.Maybe only thing to criticize is the fact that the internet isn't the best and there is no gym. I would highly recommend though, as it is a cheaper and nicer alternative to the Laico...

I tried 3 others Hotels in Ouagadougou and definitely this is the best. Because it is the sole wester style hotel in the city. The breakfast is the best I seen here. Still acceptable. I used two time the room service having acceptable club sandwich first and hamburgher the day after. The location is convenient to the city and to... More

Perhaps it is because the hotel has not been fully reestablished following refurbishment but despite the very good rooms this hotel has a dead atmosphere at times almost like an institution. One evening I went to the restaurant which serves good food but quickly retreated to my room to avail of room service such was the dim light and downbeat... More

I previously wrote a review based on my encounter with certain staff members at the Golden Tulip in regards to the planning of my wedding on December 20th, 2014. That review was written just a few days before I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the Director General of the Golden Tulip. He accepted to meet with me to help... More

I stayed at the Golden Tulip in October 2014 for 2 weeks. The hotel is newly renovated, the room and bathroom brand-new and very clean. The hotel offers a good choice of W African dishes (the yassa was very good) and international dishes. The breakfast if delicious and includes locally produced honey! The staff is extremely nice, helpful and accommodating.... More
