“Very good location and friendly staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed at Golden Tulip Hotel de Ville in July 2012 for a personnal trip, The location is GREAT! It is in Achrafiye, which is an upscale neighbourhood in Beyrouth. It is right next to Universite St-Joseph, so the it gets full of students sometimes by day, which makes it even more sympathetic. It is in a very calm side street, but at 20-30 minutes walk from downtown Beyrouth so it is very convenient.
There is also a travel agency next to it, where we booked a tour, and from where the bus leaves, which makes the location of the hotel very practical.

The rooms are small, but confortable and very clean. All rooms seem to have a private balcony, and the view from our balcony (as anywhere in Beyrouth) was breathtaking (from far)

There was construction when we went, so sometimes it might get noisy.

The price is very reasonable in a city where hotel rooms seem to be not less than 200$ a night.

Golden Tulip in 5 points:

1. Very good location in a quiet neighbourhood but not far from the action
2. Small rooms, but very clean and confortable
3. Expensive breakfast: NOT worth it
4. Free wi-fi with DAILY passwords
5. Very friendly staff

Friendly hotel staff!
They do not run air condition at the gym, there is no drinking water at the gym. There is a mobile operator tower antenna at the top of the building which is health risk. Very poor internet service, very slow and you need to get a coupon from reception everytime u have been disconnected.
In my experience i dont recommend for a business travellers,

This Hotel was very hard to find, it's off the main road and away from the traffic noise but they do not have any signs to show you the way. It's not too far from the French Embassy and a short walk to Sodeco Square, if you have a car there is very little parking and as far as I know they don't have underground parking. The rooms are nice and cosy but not too small and my room on the 8Th floor had a huge king sized bed which was so comfortable, there is a balcony but if you don't like heights don't go out there, it's very small and has just a tube railing and I didn't feel safe. The bathroom is nice and clean and well appointed but very small. Breakfast is included and there is so much to chose from and there is also a fine restaurant downstairs, I found this place very relaxing.

Room Tip: Get the location on a map before you go there if you drive yourself or request the Hotel send a car...

The golden tulip is located near sodeco a great area in Beirut with bustling restaurants and bars about a 15 minute walk to downtown Beirut. The Japanese restaurant serves decent, well priced sushi and the breakfast buffet has a good selection of Lebanese favorites for breakfast. A good hotel for the price

Good balace between price & service; basic services, clean and quite comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful.Very well positioned near the city centre close to the French embassy.Breakfast ok,free internet in the rooms. Rooms are small but sufficiently equipped. For 90 USD including breakfast you cannot pretend more.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We were a big group of guys doing a bachelor's weekend in beirut, who looked for a reasonably priced place that has the basics, comfortable enough, and is in a good location.. Goldin Tulip did it for us..

We were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff with a great sense of humour, who did not hesitate to upgrade our rooms as soon as they knew the purpose of our visit.

Rooms were reasonable, with comfy beds, ok bathrooms and all the other basics provided. If anything was missing (e.g. US-to-Europe electrical adaptor), the staff, again, were more than happy to get for you.

Overall, and for the money I paid, this is exactly what I had expected, if not even more...

Room Tip: Higher floors have newly refurbished rooms.
