Being that ourr hands were forced and we had no choice but to stay at the Golden Tulip i do feel that leaving this review may not be fair. However, after a particularly taxing journey that started in Heathrow's terminal 4, lasted 24 hours and culminated in our missing our connecting flight in Bahrain, we were booked into the Golden Tulip hotel by our carrier, Gulf Air.
If you are nostalgic for the glamour and glitz of a 1970's Las Vegas hotel (not on the strip but in the cheaper neighbourhoods) then this hotel is for you. Our room featured rusting light fixtures, patches in the bathroom and a strange, lingering damp smell. Luckily we could read all night as we had a floodlight right outside our window so the hotel could be lit up at night and look pretty from a distance.
The entire floor we stayed on stank of stale cigarettes, the staff were nothing short of ignorant and made us feel as if we were criminals simply because we had a free night and did not pay for it. We had to convince the room service team that we were allowed to use their services and when it did finally arrive our waiter rang down to reception as he openly told us that he did not believe we were allowed to sign for goods and be trusted to pay for them the next day.
All in all a completely ruined first day of our holiday and staff that made us feel like criminals.
