The Golden Tulip has provided great service every day I have stayed here. Their customer service is fantastic and they offer great buffets 3 days out of the week. They have a good variety for their breakfast and juice bar. The gym only consists of a few cardio machines and has certain times women can be there. Overall a great... More

If you are looking for a modern luxury boutique hotel built of glass and stainless steel with a minimalist design concept this is not the hotel for you. However if you are looking for a traditional hotel with friendly and efficient staff, decent sized bedrooms, reasonably furnished and equipped, with good facilities including a swimming pool, located in a good...

Beginning was not good! I had ordered a hotel limo to collect me from the airport on my incoming flight from Kuwait. The flight was delayed, and although I assumed they would keep an eye out for actual arrival times, I sent an email to the hotel advising them of the fact. This email was acknowledged. When I got there,... More

The hotel is not a luxury hotel, but a solid hotel with accomodate, moderate prices. The Japanese restaurant is excellent, just the opening hours are not the friendliest for business people and dinner meetings. The staff is friendly and restrained, the rooms big enough and modern - especially these to the BWTC. The bathrooms need an urgent refurbishment. The breakfast... More

Simply, the rooms are cheap in furniture... My room was awful, and the bathroom was so under standard. Bathtub was broke, the flush doesn't work, and the lightening was so poor.. Unfortunately the price is too high for such poor quality.. It's only 20-40$ difference from the real 5 star hotels like Diplomat and Sheraton... When I was checking out,... More

I stayed at this hotel at the beginning and end of 2014 and the difference is pretty impressive. OK - it's an old property and doesn't really have a lot of charm but they are renovating (an ongoing process) and striving to make things better. The new rooms are very decent with some good new features and nice clean design.... More

Travelling with Gulf Air, I was put in this hotel on the way out due to a delayed ongoing flight. The room was in the older part of the hotel, beyond the pool. The room smelt mouldy, the fittings were dated and I haven't seen a CRT TV in a hotel for many years. The food was slop and staff... More
