GOLDEN TULIP ALMEKTAN
Our customers' reviews of hotel Golden Tulip Al Mektan
Upon arrival we received complimentary water melon juice and biscuits. Rooms are nice and cleaned daily with fresh new linen provided daily. Breakfast is o.k with a mixture of continental and arabic. I stayed here for 4 nights and fresh fruit was only provided twice, the rest of the days it was tinned fruit.Cereal contained of cornflakes only. But decent variety nevertheless. Location was fantastic. It only took 3 minutes from the hotel to the courtyard of Masjid Nabawi (gate 7). Upon leaving the hotel, walk straight(no turning) and you are literally at Bab Al Salaam gate (salaam pesh) within 5 minutes. Downside: Water in the bathroom was between cold and lukewarm. I called the maintenance engineer who informed me that the water temperature was at it's peak and only increased the water pressure. The family dreaded having a shower and was a matter of quick in and out. Recommendation: Need to have proper hot water in the bathroom and more variety on the continental style breakfast ie cereal and fresh fruit.
Was allocated room # 401 a corner room which was a good selection for me. Ample toiletries / tea / coffee and sugar. Wish there was creamer to complete the compliment. Linen are absolutely clean. Very effective toliet space and sparkling fitting. Amble plug point to charge your devices. The breakfast serve was good enough with an egg and falalel station. Wish they lay out real glasses / cups and saucers instead of throwaways as it gives a cheapness to a good spread. The hotel practices GREEN with motion sensor lighting in the floor and corridors.
