Golden Tulip is one of the few mid-range options in Aqaba. That said, you get what you pay for. The hotel is a decent base for those on a tight budget but not somewhere you'd want to spend much time: the bathroom linens smelled alternately of bleach and must, the sheets were marked with unidentifiable spots and I stepped over...

This is a very old hotel. Rooms are small and the bathrooms are very small. You have to shut the door to even get to the sink. We were on the 5th floor and when we went down for breakfast the next morning the hallway was flooded with water. We told the front desk, but when we went back to... More

I have been going to this hotel on regular basis since 2008 (5-10 times/year). Unfortunately, this hotel is becoming worst with years in terms of conservation, cleanliness and staff quality. It used to be a good option for low price budgets but not anymore. I do not recommend it to anyone. I have photos upon request that It is a... More

What makes this hotel worth a stay is its location, a block away from the main streets but still in quiet enough side street. Of course, if you are into beaches and diving, this is not for you. But for a visit in the city, the location is perfect. Hotel itself is another cement block with small rooms and the... More

Good sized clean rooms in some need of updating so expensive for what you get. In the centre of Aqaba so can get noisy at weekends. Breakfast was not worth the hassle but the dining area was plenty bug enough. Small lift meant on several occasions we used the stairs. Plenty of hot water and clean towels and sheets provided.

The hotel is ok in every sense (though not more than ok), but you have to be aware of its location - far from any decent beach and without the beach of its own. The hotel has a well-organised shuttle transportation to the private beach Berenice where you can enjoy yourself all day :) So, if you don't mind this... More

The Hotel is in the centre of aqaba, WLAN is availible in the whole Hotel. The room is clean and big but old and you see that the furniture has been used for years, espacially the bath room. A Renovation would be great. The breakfast is yummi! With new furniture it would be a nice Hotel!

Location of the hotel is very good but the hotel itself is nothing great. Breakfast and rooms were just about average but for the price we paid we found it to be a good deal. The other hotels in the same area were far more expensive. If you are a little tight on budget it's not a bad deal.

We made a reservation to the reservation staff for deluxe room with balcony for 2 nights and it's confirmed. When we arrived the receptionist said that there is no room for us. We came from long trip and have 2 kids (1yo and 3 yo) and we were expecting comfortable room for us to take a rest. After having some... More
