Decent hotel
Some staff were friendly, but some were not.

Royal Tulip, a perfectly good stay
Our stay at Royal Tulip was lovely. We arrived after a long drive and trip to Hells Gate, so it was wonderful to be greeted by a man with hot towels and a nice cold fruit juice upon check in. The room was clean and everything we expected. The people who work there are lovely. The hotel amenities are nice- we did not get a chance to try the gym, but we did go to the sauna which is a nice plus. If you are going in the morning, do call them to ask if the Sauna's are on, as they seemed to turn them on only for us when we went but it took about 10 minutes for them to get hot. We found the breakfast to be adequate. The dinner was very pricey, and there are much better and more affordable local options.

Awful service if there’s an issue (had a cold shower two out of three days), restaurant service was ridiculous - don’t even bother eating there

Twice I went here and needed to put refrigerant blocks in the main kitchen freezer for medical purposes. It took a three man debate and then took ages for staff to find them when I needed them.

Below average price/value
Located in the expat/embassy area, seemed very safe. Lovely decorated, good spaservices, good service. Nice inhouse restaurant but food varied, some dishes were excellent some below average. Shower was so so. Only one device allowed to log in to the wifi. Nice hotel on the surface but doesnt hold up its image once detailes are scrutinized.
