Amazing location. Lovely foyer area to hotel and the rooms were modern and very clean. Great service at reception and housekeeping. Free WiFi available with good speed. We enjoyed the Suna and steem room

Great staff , service and price. Would recommend this hotel as it is relatively close to everything. There is no pool or pool bar at this hotel, so if these are your requirements then its not the right place to look. This is a family friendly hotel, which is great!

Tulip Inn Muscat in certainly my "Home in Muscat". This is my fifth time I stay in this hotel and I certainly leave to visit again. I would like to highlight the warm welcome, hospitality, the clean and comfortable room (corridors and lounge), the nice and versatile breakfast, free internet, the good service, the care and readiness to assist. In short it is the hotel of "International standards with an oriental touch" that I feel comfortable in, all in an affordable budget.

The room was huge enough for me, my parents and my brother. The beds were comfortable and the shower warm. The hotel is about 20 min from the airport, and has a good location to visit the city, but by taxi. The hotel is a little old but this was ok for us. Breakfast is very good and complete. Staff is helpful and kind and they all are english speakers.

It is a nice hotel if you want to visit Muscat, but you do need an taxi to bring you to different hotspots. There is taxi always in front of the hotel and the taxi we met there was so friendly we kept him on speed dial the rest of our stay and that was a good arrangement. But that is something that is needed were ever you are in Muscat. Hotel room was big and clean. Staff was correct and mostly very friendly. Breakfast buffet was good and the products were fresh and the assortment changed a bit every day. If you want to eat in the neighborhood of the hotel we would recommend Foodland, not very expensive and some very good Indian food.

Muscat, and Oman in general, used to be a great place for reasonably-priced hotels - but something happened a few years ago, and now many are horribly overpriced. It is, therefore, quite a challenge to find a hotel that is both reasonably priced and also ... reasonable to stay. The Tulip Inn (Al Khuwair) is both. There is nothing fancy or flashy about this hotel - but it is clean and comfortable; the staff are friendly and helpful; and the food - which is not at all exciting - is fine. I use this place as a convenient and perfectly acceptable hotel for business trips to Muscat. If you look at other reviews of mine - you will see that I have not always been so lucky with my choices.

This hotel is modern and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and clean and showers are hot. Aircon works well. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We were surprised to see Christmas decorations up and they were serving a Christmas menu in the restaurant which was delicious but could of been a little hotter. Father Christmas was even wandering around. It has a nice pool to chill out at as well. It is only a 15 minutes drive to the Souk and the beach and about 20/25 to the Sultans palace, so very central. We would happily stay here again.

We were welcomed warmly by the General Manager Mr Naji Abi Farah, who upgraded us spontaneously to a junior suite, offered discount vouchers for the restaurant and instructed his staff to help us organise the next day's excursion. it was truly a royal welcome. The room was spotless, with all the required amenities. Great breakfast buffet and good location with quite a lot of local restaurants around.

We stayed two nights here, either side of a tour of Oman. Very comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms, excellent cafe for breakfast and dinner. Helpful staff. Didn't use the swimming pool but it looked inviting. Other people have complained about the breakfasts, fine for me and the most delicious falafals I have ever eaten. It is near a busy main road but we didn't find it too noisy. The AC was strong and I immediately switched it off until I warmed up! Convenient for the bus station

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.
