The Golden Tulip is one of my favourite Bangkok hotels. I have stayed there more than 10 times. The location is great. Close to first class shopping, restaurants and after-dark entertainment. The check-in desk is efficient and the staff always welcoming. The room cleaning staff are quite early mornings and punctual and do a good job. Breakfast is average but plentiful, with restaurant staff being attentive. I have a number of issues though. Some rooms have very poor Wi-Fi reception, the TV channels are very ethnic selective with there are limited English language channels. In particular movies and news. One occasions towels supplied are very tatty and drop the tone on what are nice bathrooms. Desk fixtures in a number of rooms are broken.
My biggest issue is with hire of hotel cars (at 1,400 baht) to take you to the airport. On two occasions I have hired them and both times totally unsatisfactory. First time we were dropped off with luggage in the commuters car-park. That is a long walk to check-in. Protests telling the driver, and a tour operator, that my wife would find that walk difficult met on death ears. The second most recent time I requested that the driver take the toll-way. No, he took the longest way to the airportin back-streets. What is normally a 45 trip (at the most), took 75 minutes. I will not fall for this again, I'll take a taxi.
In summary, a nice relaxing hotel
