In the U.S. the Tulip Omega is a 2-Star Best Western or Motel 6. Get the idea?
I gave this hotel a 3 because it is new. A year from now it will be a 2.
The fact that the hotel is new or there are the typical start-up issues makes no difference – this hotel has major issues and hotel management continues to ignore the major issues and concentrate on smaller matters.
Hot water: Inconsistent. When only cold or 70 degree water is available, the staff says the problem is the central office and not the hotel. When the water temperature fluctuates, the staff attempts to divert your attention elsewhere.
Poor construction - look at tile work or bathroom plumbing....Mario from Donkey Kong could have done a better job.
Bed was two twins pushed together with a pad down the center. The pad routinely falls through.
WiFi: Pathetically low signal strength. Use the wall outlet for Internet with a hotspot.
Lighting: All crappy cold color temperature lighting – Hotels need to buy the warmer color temperature lighting. There are warmer LEDs out there for purchase.
No A/C: only heat is available (Snow flake does not appear on thermostat – c’mon!) Sleeping in 73 degree room is impossible – door must be open and sore throat ensues.
No Phones: How does a hotel open with no phones? Phones started operating around day 40.
Lobby security seems sufficient – no way to tell unless there is an incident of course. Safe in room is very light, not bolted to cabinet, and the security code 12345679 works regardless if you change the code – not safe.
Front desk and restaurant staff excellent – very attentive and nice.
The hotel sits next to the IBC/MBC inside Olympic Park. Once the Games end the IBC/MPC will be a mall. Unless you want to be near the mall or the F-1 track, why would anyone stay here? To stand on the rooms balcony and watch the race maybe. Pathetic.
I predict this poorly constructed hotel to have major infrastructure issues in years to come. Tile work everywhere is of very poor craftsmanship, plumbing is not suitable for a prison. Look inside the service panel in the bathroom…brick with possibly the worst masonry you have ever seen.
Food - poor quality - cold breakfast - Every Omelet station in the world should have an English speaking cook.
Keep the staff! They are great – overworked – but great!
