Golden Tulip Bahrain
Ranked #50 of 134 Hotels in Manama
Reviewed 9 April 2014

the reception staff were unhelpfull and need extra training on how to look after their customers
japanese restaurant was excellent in the hotel shuttle bus service was very good and on time
pool area was not clean and rubbish was floating on surface
our room on 7th floor non smoking was spacious and clean
we used taxi service based at hotel to take us to B I C race track
driver charged us 25 dirham and did not use meter although it is illegal our return taxi picked up at race circuit only charged us 12 dirham
we complained to driver next morning and he said it would be busy on race day but he would do it for 15 dirham but when we arrived he insisted on us paying him 16 dirham
this reflects very badly on the hotel who allow them an office outside
sports bar in hotel needs major improvement more like a 3 star than a 5 star as displayed outside hotel

Room Tip: top floor non smoking rooms

It was our company yearly meeting visit. Staff were very polite. Rooms were clean and food in the restaurant was delicious. We stayed for 3 days and the service was just fantastic. I definitely recommend this hotel to others who wants to have pleasant stay in Bahrain.

Nice hotel with reasonable service and facilities but it is 4 star at the best. The breakfast was not up to standard and the staff at breakfast were not very friendly. Poor internet reception plus the broad band internet was not functional. The TV was not properly set. The room furniture apart from the bed were out dated and definitely needs changing.
I only stayed at the Hotel for one night and I guess for one night that is not so bad.

i have visited this hotel for 3 nights for the second time .....my first experience was not so good but i had to be back based on the good location in the heart of the city of manama.
knowing that the hotel is under renovation (i cannot review the new adjustments to be fair ) but i have one major complain which the awful internet speed in the rooms...it is really catastrophic..
1 addition matter is the front office staff who really need some training about how to deal with customers.

Room Tip: avoid smoking rooms...

The room was very big and the ambience was quite nice. The food was good and there was a swimming pool within the hotel premises, which was an excellent place to chill. There also was a Pool Cafe as well as a Drink's Counter nearby the swimming pool. There room facilities were very good and the service provided was fine too. It was a relaxed atmosphere inside the hotel and was a great way to escape from the hot weather in Bahrain. I would recommed this hotel as it is very close to the Bahrain International Airport and Airport Transfer is also available.

Room Tip: The rooms near the reception were quite peaceful.

I think the best way to describe this hotel really is "tired" - although that does not in any way refer to the staff, who were always friendly and helpful and made my 3 week stay as pleasant as possible. It's just the whole building itself, which has obviously seen better days and is clinging to it's 5 stars with grim abandon.

I think the sports bar (with the charm of an East German motorway cafe - formerly Intershop) is one of the least inviting places I have seen in recent years. The gym is very small and underground with mostly old equipment and a musty damp smell that - well just think cellars full of rugby teams.
Other annoying thing was the cost of wireless internet (16 USD /day!!!) which is daylight robbery, even though I managed to haggle a reduction due to the fact that I was staying 20 days.

On the good side I have to again mention the staff and the Japanese restaurant which was delicious. The rooms are fine. Small but pretty functional and house keeping made a great job of making me feel at home but all in all this is not a place I would want to spent another 3 weeks. Sorry.
