“Very good hotel, a bit far from downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last months. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms, very good breakfast and restaurant, very good gym, friendly and helpful staff, beautifully located on the Paranoá lakeshore. It's just a bit far from downtown, so you'd probably need a car or taxi to go to the city main spots.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Golden Tulip Brasilia Alvorada is a nice hotel, in a quiet and calm place, in front of the Paranoa lake and beside the Palácio da Alvorada, Brasil’s president house.
My room was very big, with a balcony and a big living room separate from the bedroom. There was a king size bed and a nice bathroom, very spacious and new, wich proportionate a very good night sleep.
The negative point is that the hotel is far from the downtown and shopping malls. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is very good. If you need to have dinner in your room be prepared because they bring you a lot of food, is almost impossible to eat alone.

I stood there for one week. Nothing to complain about. Almost every was perfect. If I say "almost" it is because of two minor comments. One is about the old cathodic TV screen. I do not remmeber last time I saw such an old TV. The other comment is about the band playing in the bar. It is this kind of 70's/80's medley which does not deserve at all Brasilian music.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

I would recommend paying slightly more and staying at the Royal Tulip in the same complex. It is much nicer. The Golden Tulip has a very dreary atmosphere. The rooms are large but the beds are not comfortable. 2 hours free wifi a day.

The food in both hotels is pretty awful. The restaurant in the Golden Tulip reminds me of a motorway cafe. The burgers in the pub were nice but all the buffet food was poor.

The pool area by the lake could be really nice. Unfortunately, on the one day that I wanted to sit by the pool, really loud techno music was being blasted out really loudly.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Hotel is far from city center and there will be increased costs with transportation. These extra costs can be compensated by the lower rates compared to other hotels in Brasilia (at least for me with a corporate rate). The pros: good breakfast buffet, nicely landscaped pool and gym area, really quiet location leading to excellent sleep, big rooms, room service with tons of options. The cons: rooms are a little bit dated with air conditioning that clearly requires better maintenance, only wired and slow Internet connection (at least it's free), small and old fashioned TV, very simple amenities, low quality linens. Overall, I would stay again. And don't expect the front desk to recognize the free Connections offer from Golden Tulip chain, they will simply say they are not aware and offer their standard loyalty program called Flavours. I had to contact the Golden Tulip group to ensure my AAdvantage miles.
