Tulip Inn Muscat3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is okay but maybe needs some maintenance (AC is loud, sanitary in the toilet is a bit old).. breakfast is kind of okay. The rooms are big and hotel staff are very kind and helpful. Internet is also good.
Despite its nearby a broad, however, its the first time I had to visit saltanat Oman on my way to Zanzibar island, the location of the hotel was in an area close to everything a tourists need, the real warm welcome from reception staff and smiling, spacious, quiet and comfortable room and breakfast buffet worth waking up, free parking behind the hotel. But its price is a bit high, and the Wi-Fi was bad, there is not enough bath towels and complete accessories, there is no glass or plastic barrier that keeps the water from coming out of the bathtub, there were smokers next to the entrance inappropriately, don't dram that you'll got a happy view !
This is a 3* hotel so dont keep very high expectations. very good option for budget traveller. The location of the hotel is perfect, its right in the middle of main city center and provide easy access from all major attractions. Had only breakfast here and the menu choices are limited for the buffet but still manageable. I booked one deluxe single and double room each but got upgraded to the deluxe suite rooms. its clean and have free wifi. Moderate coverage and speed for a 3* hotel. Overall i would recomened this place if you want to stay in middle of city and want easy access to many attractions ( within 10-30 kms)
So having looked up Tulip Inn, without fully realizing that there are 2 Tulip Inns in Muscat; I booked the one at Al Khuwair assuming it was in Ruwi. This was not known till we reached the Hotel as one is Tulip Inn and other one is Tulip Inn Downtown (point to note here is that, there is no Signage to the hotel on ground and neither any mention of it on the website). Even after profusely explaining the confusion, the Front Desk Manager refused to budge and hence we had to forcibly go back 15kms to Al Khuwair from Ruwi after having traveled a long way back from Sohar. On reaching the hotel, re-explaining the issue and showing him a review on Trip Advisor, the Front Desk said okay we;ll adjust you at Ruwi. Which was a waste of time, energy and confidence in the brand. Coming to the room, it was well kept when we checked-in. Though, the next morning we realized there was severe leakage in the washroom the water was overflowing from the bath-tub. The room and washroom weren't checked / cleaned for almost 4 hours in spite of leaving a tag. We asked for a converter cable and it wasn't produced until 4 hours and was done so only when the cooperative Duty Manager (mr. Wahid) was summoned. He not only heard all concerns but also proceeded to provide us a better room and apologized for the behaviour / non-responsive nature of his staff.
staff is very nice start from reception....restaurent was nice,, a staff was very nice name Din Din...she was very caring and having a pleasant personality...she was very kind to my kids...Hotel manager was also very nice... vikas
I stayed only 1 night with my family (wife and 2 kids aged 4 and) during a stopover in Muscat with Oman air on the way back from Zanzibar due to a lost connection. Despite being 4 people we had a room with 2 beds and only after complaining we had an upgrade to a bigger room but with 3 beds. Air condition is very noisy and switched off when you arrive, so in summer you'll find a room with 35° inside. Poor quality soap and shampoo made in China that caused a skin irritation to my wife. I payed 1$ for wi-fi connection. Not reccomended for me.
Stayed here on 2 occasions and its a really good option when in Muscat. Nicely situated on the outskirts of town whereby avoiding the hustle and bustle of central town. Hotel has decent amenities, good pool and good breakfast. Rooms are small but clean and decent and has all the creature comforts and offers good views too. Staff are helpful and friendly especially at the Pool. A safe bet with this hotel.
I enjoyed the great hospitality and service in Tulip Inn hotel. Very recommended hotel for those who need a clean and comfortable beds and friendly staff. Rooms are very spacious and the bathroom as well. Dinner buffet in the hotel is amazing but breakfast needs some improvement as not much choices available. Being an Arab hotel and not providing Hummus and baba ganoush for breakfast is something that the manager in charge should look at it. The prices for laundry are very expensive similar to 5 star hotels and unfortunately the express service takes more than 24 hours to be delivered. I had no choice just to look for outside laundry and managed to pay 4-5 times cheaper than hotel within the same day service.
One of the best hotel experiences I had considering I've been in hardly 3 to 4 hotels before. But the breakfast and the restaurants ambience , WiFi, room service, staff etiquette, ambience of complete hotel was too good. They have sona bath and steam bath. Complete value for money. Will see you again this year Tulip Inn.
Great location close the airport, nice rooms and almost perfect service. Inside a restaurant vey well prepared for any food and I nice souvenir shop. I really enjoyed and rested every my permanence. Compliments.
