“Great location and hotel”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This isn't a luxury 5 or 4 star hotel but I would definately give it 3++. I think the location of the hotel is really good. Its just a short walk to the Sharif DG metro station, about 200 hundred meters. Its also possible to walk to Mall of Emirates in a few minutes, its faster to walk then by taxi as the car roads to the hotel is a bit messy, a taxi ride from the hotel to Mall of emirates was 8.50 dirham. The metro takes around 10min to the Dubai mall station.

A taxi to Jumeria Public Beach was 28-30 dirham. Taxi to Jumeria Beach 1 was 50 dirhamn.
Taxi to the hotel can be a bit tricky, there is a Golden tulip apartments and a Golden tulip suites, in our experience the taxi drivers didnt know the Golden tulip Hotel.
On the same street as the hotel there is 2 small supermarkets and one slightly larger. Good for water and snacks.

The pool on the rooftop is quite small, there are 12 sunbeds and 4 sets of tables and chairs. At the time we visited the sun dissappeared from the rooftop at 15.30 behind a new tall hotel nearby. Its possible to call down to the bar to get service at the rooftop.

The hotel also has a free shuttle bus service to the open beach behind Burj Al Arab, leaving at 11. There is free internet in the hotels sport bar if you by a drink. The bar is smokey and dark but they have pool tabels, multiple tv screens and dart boards.

The hotel staff was friendly and most accomodating. We were served a small welcome drink at checkin and got a nice room on the 6th floor. The hotel has 6th floors and then a rooftoop. We had booked the delux room. It had a balcony with view over front but strangely there was no table or chairs to use so I didnt use the balcony much. The room had a king size bed and a 2 seat sofa and 2 chairs. Flatscreen tv with several movie channels. Two mornings we were woken up by housekeeping ringing the doorbell even though we had the do not disturb sign up, but the cleaning was good. I didnt hear the night club on the ground floor at all. I didnt go in to the night club so I cant say if it was busy or not. However, they had ladies nights on monday and tuesday which meant free drinks for women between 21-24.

Overall I think this hotell was great. A pool side bar would be nice and some chairs for the balcony.

Compared to many other hotels in Dubai, this one is average. There are no sparkling fountains or mile long buffets, but it has clean rooms and is very close to the Mall of the Emirates making it a good location in the middle of Dubai. As others have said, it is a bit difficult to find, but ask and you'll get there eventually. Staff is also average. It's a decent hotel in a decent area and a lot cheaper than some of the better places, but still clean and comfortable. Breakfast is pretty good too.

Hotel golden Tulip Al barsha is a decent hotel located near Mall opf Emirates, dont get confused with the main Golden Tulip which is very well known, people are not realy aware of the location of this newly renovated hotel and finding your way back is slight issue. The rooms are very nice and well stocked,the buffet is great and the staff freindly,the hotel caters to all your needs. The restaurent is very expensive,so dine outside. Also remember to buy lot of water if your going in the summers from the nearest convenience store. Over all a very nice property and experience.

Nice hotel with clean rooms ,which are of decent size.
There is a nice buffet breakfast with one of the best coffee's I have had.
Location is great you are bang in the middle of dubai not far from the new part that is the marina,autodrome etc and of course not far from Bur Dubai and Old Dubai.
To top it ,it is barely 150-200mts from the Metro staion and Mall of the Emirates is barely 500 mts away.
The area around the hotel also nice little dai;y need shops.
There is a small pool on the roof , nothing much but cools you,gym is not big but decent enough for a quick workout.
The staff is helpful and checkin was quick.
would not mind staying there again.

Nice hotel for staying while on business. Clean rooms, nothing fancy, very quiet. The real advantage is the location. 200 meters to the Sharaf DG Metro station. The small restaurants at street level are from OK to great. Turkish, Egyptian, Lebanese, Indian and more restaurants are within a 10 min walk. You can have a feast for AED 20 to 30. 15 minute walk to Mall of the Emirates, but take the Metro in the summer months.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet, non-smoking room.

we usually stay at one of the higher market chain hotels in dubai but decided to try to budget this time as we were also travelling to another part of the middle east. however we did find that the £300 we paid for three nights (inc of 20% taxes ,exc breakfast etc) rather too high for the quality of the hotel.it is an old hotel with smallish rooms and a small pool (not enough sun loungers while we were there). although this didnt matter to us too much as we were only on a short visit to see family in dubai, i could see it posing a problem to those guests who were on holidays ( the hotel also seems to cater to package holiday operators). the hotel is kept clean though i will point out that the bed throw was due for a clean! (it was stained). the duvet cover, sheets and pillow cases etc and bathroom were very clean. the carpet seems old and i did find the room a bit smelly ( cigarettes?) when i first entered the room. however this soon disappeared once we were settled in and had air con on. the staff were very pleasant, polite and helpful. the hotel is in a good location for the metro and the mall and also there are supermarkets and plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.i probably wouldnt stay here again (well not at £100 per night without breakfast) but would recommend if the hotel was offered or found at a discounted price.
