The only downside about this hotel is the internet. For such a nice hotel and high rates there’d is extremely poor internet.

A nice escape in Cotonou
The hotel is one of the nicest in Cotonou. The pool area is clean and well-maintained. The lobby and restaurant are clean, open and inviting. The guest rooms are quiet, cool and dark - however our bed did have a pretty annoying squeak. The service at the restaurant, especially when sitting outside, could use some improvement (we had to ask for a menu twice). Overall though, the staff are friendly and attentive and most of them are English speakers as well.

Been here over two weeks, and it’s a very comfortable hotel. Food at the buffet is good, although repetitive. Staff is extremely outgoing and accommodating.

First visit to Benin
We truly enjoyed our stay at The Golden Tulip. The atmosphere was warm, inviting, and similar to standards seen in the States. We highly recommend The Golden Tulip!

good business hotel
good hotel. its a little pricey for what it is, but since they are the only real business hotel left in Cotonou they can charge what they like. the rooms are great, service is good, internet works reliably. Food is ok. I'd say eat out and not in the hotel. There is a pool but it's enclosed by walls so not very pleasant. Stay here because you need a reliable business hotel, not because you want to hang out here.
