Golden Tulip Flamenco4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
For the money, it is an excellent value. Though dated in appearance, room was extraordinarily large and quiet, so long as the sliding door was closed. The breakfast was very good. Staff were helpful; when a problem arose with the air conditioner, a repair person handled it promptly. Above all, the location is perfect.
Was on a holiday to Egypt. Stayed at Golden Tulip. Room was small. Getting wifi connectivity was a pain. Bath tub stopper couldn't be closed to run a bath. The health faucet/shower didn't work. Not value for money.
This was my first stay at the Golden Tulip Flamenco in Zamalek. I know Zamalek well and I like the location very much. I have met friends before for drinks in the Carmen bar and have always enjoyed the service there, which has always been both efficient and friendly. The hotel is very clean & modern, it has just finished a refurbishment, it is a boutique style hotel which I like as it's not too big and impersonal. I booked mainly because I like the area and the rate for a standard room was very affordable for Zamalek, one of my favourite areas of Cairo. The check in process was very smooth, only about five minutes. All the receptionists were very friendly and volunteered details about breakfast times, free wifi password / how to access it. The wifi worked very well in my room and in the lobby or the lounge. They also pointed out services near the hotel, which would be good for someone not familiar with the area. Whenever I had a question, they would answer it and even drew a little map to make it easier to find things, it was a pleasure to talk to them. On several occasions I asked reception for information and they were obliging, friendly and helpful, so well done. I had a problem with my TV remote and the lock on my door, they were fixed by the time I returned to the room after breakfast, great service. Reception changed large notes for smaller ones where they could and they were quick to point out the money exchange not far from the hotel, turn left as you exit the hotel it is on the same side of the street, about a 2 min walk. The room was not huge but it is clean & modern, with efficient air con, a new TV, comfy bed and a very cold fridge (often the fridges are not cold in Egypt). I slept well in the hotel, that was wonderful as I had suffered insomnia quite a bit this trip. The bathroom was compact but modern with good hot water service and water pressure. The breakfast buffet was better than average with something for everyone, hot dishes, an assortment of different breads and pastries, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, eggs cooked to order, juice, water, tea and coffee - the restaurant is clean & the servers were friendly. Room service was also affordable, prompt and tasty. There is a Metro supermarket nearby, drycleaner, a pharmacy just across the street, restaurants / both take-away and dine in including Seqouia, Sushi, Latin American, Italian, Pizza Hut, Cook Door, Hardees, Butcher Burger and so many coffee shops and patisseries including the hotel's own called Postres in Abu el Feda street. There are lots of clothes shops, banks and ATM's all within walking distance. I will definitely stay here again. Also the hotel is within walking distance of the new metro stop under construction, which will be a bonus when it opens and it's also within walking distance to the popular Rooftop bar with magnificent Nile views especially at night. Great value for Zamalek in my opinion.

The hotel is good located, in the center of the zamalek island wish is a very good neighborhood, very safe for a single woman for example. The service is perfect and the room is clean but a little bit old and noisy (traffic) even If I had a room in the fifth floor.
An old hotel, in a residential area, Yhe good advantage, some rooms overlook the Nile River The lobby is very small and accommodates only 8 people and is a semi-room and not a lobby. You need about 45 minutes to check in to the room when you arrive. There is no activity at the hotel except staying in the room. Breakfast is not satisfactory and there are not many options. Reception staff and breakfast staff were very friendly and well The rooms are old but clean and spacious. When we entered the room the air conditioner was very hot and the fridge was working but it was not cool and the safety deposit box did not work and when contacted, the air conditioner. The 25 channel TV channels only operate 17 channels and safety box were repaired only. I would not recommend this hotel and the price is overpriced for the services available
I stayed at this hotel the last week in June.This hotel is in a decent part of Cairo near shops, restaurants, Pharmacy, supermarket. The check in was kind of slow due to the person behind the counter. She did not seem to have any urgency in doing her job. Once I went up to the room, I called down to the front desk to ask a question, but she did not pick up the phone, and I had to go down back to the lobby. This is bad customer service. Also, I inquired about exchanging money to Egyptian pounds, but she was not willing to assist nor did she even direct me to where I could do so. The room was very small, and while it had air conditioning, it was not effective in cooling the room, as a matter of fact, it was somewhat uncomfortable sleeping at night. Also, housekeeping staff did not replenish the room coffee/tea/water without being asked to do so. Finally, at breakfast in the morning, the waiters seem to be missing in action. Every time I went in, I had to go find someone to bring me a cup of coffee, also, while they had a small omelet station, there was no one there to make the omelets. Check out was OK.
Good clean hotel, polite staff, good but slow service, no gym in opposition to their advertising , great restaurant in upper floor, great breakfast buffet . Good area with lots of interest points. Good stay!
I first visited the hotel seven years ago and was surprised to find myself there again. The standards have fallen a bit and my room on the 3rd floor was soooo average overlooking the road of the entrance to the hotel. The rooms on the 7th floor are much better and cost the same at the time. Ask for a room facing the Nile if available. The breakfast was rich enough for someone on the go and the chef fries lovely eggs! It is in a busy area with a Pizza Hut opposite and a KFC round the corner. THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL TO ME and I cannot overemphasize that and their are policemen with guns in front of the hotel for security. We (me and my colleague-male&female) were able to walk around the area at night without any feeling of fear. Just be careful as you would be in any cosmopolitan city like london and Newyork. Would really have enjoyed staying at the Cairo Marriott but it was fully booked and just a bit more expensive so all in all the Flamenco was good value for availability and budget.
