Golden Tulip Bielefeld City

Reviewed 29 July 2011

Spent 5 days here for a conference at the university. Rooms are "ok" but nothing special. Be sure to ask for a room away from the patio. People drink and talk out there until the wee hours and the air conditioning was not turned on so we HAD to leave the window open or roast.

There is a 9 euro charge for internet access in your room but one free computer in the lobby. Nothing special about the breakfast either. Ours was included with the conference room price but it was pricey if it hadn't been. You are in the middle of the shopping/restaurant district which is a plus and about 2 blocks from the very easy to use subway.

Some of the people at the front desk had limited English skills. Rooms were clean but the maid never replaced the shampoo once in 5 days!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room in the back of the hotel.

Great location, walking distance to everything. Could do with another couple of lifts as often had to wait. We booked a superior room as we wanted a separate shower; we also had a lot of luggage and needed the extra space as shown in the photo. The room turned out to be very small, quite unlike the photo and none of the rooms in the whole hotel had a separate shower! There was only space to open one suitcase. The bathroom was too small, with a huge glass door along the side of the bath-tub which had to be swung in and out to stand under the shower; if that was open, the bathroom door could not be opened. The toilet was jammed in behind the door and there was no leg-room. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast buffet excellent and there was a lovely bar area. Free internet in the lobby. Desk staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Upgrading to a superior room may not necessarily be an advantage.

The staff here were very friendly and helpful. They really to tired be of every assistance to requests. It was the rooms that left much to be desired. While the bathrooms had been refurbished the room themselves were very late 1980's and the television from the same period. The towels were tiny and while I like to recycle them over several days they were so small i gave up. The air conditioning had a control but it did not appear to be connected to the air conditioning nor did the vents actually blow in air to the room. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms and internet connections were slow and quite expensive. Location of the hotel is fine as it is near shops and many of the sights of the city but a good spruce up would really improve the hotel.

Car parking attendant was the most unfriendly person I have ever meet. Luckily the hotel staff where very polite. Although we parked both Motorcycles in one bay we still had to pay for 2 spaces. Unclear when you approach the car park that you need to get a blue ticket from the hotel first. Resulting in one of us running in to the hotel to get one.

Hotel is well situated for the City centre and was clean and comfortable.

Hotel is well situated at the south of the old town. Parking is good and adjacent to the hotel although it is not free. The Bistro restaurant offers good food and service but is not cheap.

No facility in rooms for making tea or coffee! Also had to ask for extra towels as those supplied were not adequate for more than one shower per day. No air conditioning.
