"Nothing golden about it "
This hotel was a once grand place but has not been maintained as it should. The positives are that the views from the top of the hotel are absolutely spectacular. The complimentary breakfast was good and the room had exellent views of the ocean and cityscape. The negatives are that the hotel only has one iron and board for the entire hotel. The hotel has the most annoying grooves inbetween the tiles that suitcases or any bag with wheels will make a " tac tac tac" sounding throughout the entire corridor and the rooms I would imagine. The power outlets are only 220v and the front desk only had ZERO 220v to 110v adapters available. Mamagement needs to step in now and save this prime location NOW!
"Dated but comfortable"
I booked this hotel on a buisness trip to Salvador. On the Internet I got the impression it had history and a brand that was reputable. On arrival the lobby was average looking but ok. The rooms were quite dated. I thought the furnishing were classic and of good quality but just need refurbishment. Nonetheless rhe bed was of excellent quality and I slept quite well. Being an older property the room was actually quite large even so I thought rhe TV was too far from the bed. The shower had drainage issues and the shower head was poor spray. Even with all that the service was good and became quite comfortable in the property. The breakfast buffet is quite good and adequate . I also ate lunch on the property which I would say was average especially compared to the offering services on the road.
Small damp quite smelly first room which was changed for one with no view. Very bland and mean looking tasteless breakfast. Terrible lunch, the meat could be used to make shoes. Not representative of goodish hotels in Brazil. Avoid.
Hotel is located at good place, you can get sea view from your room. Rooms are spacious but bit old styled. Room service is good as the lobby bar. Can get fresh egg preparations for breakfast. Pool is good and clean...Fitness center is there,but many equipments don't function properly. Over all good property for stay. Many local restaurants nearby for lunch & dinner.
"Beautiful view, comfortable hotel"
We stayed as a family of 4 at the Golden Tulip in September 2016. The first stay was for 4 nights and the second stay was for 1 night only. The first stay we had a nice room, very spacious and the bathroom appeared to have been renovated. The breakfast had a nice variety of hot and cold items and we felt free to take what we wanted. One of the days, for reasons of which I am not sure, our room was not cleaned. It was not a huge issue, but we had run out of bathroom tissue and I went to the desk and requested more. I expected them to provide me a roll and I would return to the room. Instead they called housekeeping to bring me some and it took them almost an hour to do so. The pool was nice and clean and we used it quite a bit. The staff was very polite and professional and I was able to speak to them in English. I was disappointed at having to pay 20 reales a night for parking, as I believe it should be included for the price. The carpet in the hallways needs replacing. And for the second time we stayed we were assigned a room that had not had the bathroom renovated. There was a large amount of mold or mildew around the tub area that could have easily been cleaned with cleaner. But aside from these few minor problems we were quite comfortable at the Golden Tulip and would recommend it as being in a very accessible location and we enjoyed the view to the fullest.
