“Not bad for the money”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel during my last business trip to Muscat since it was close to office.
The lobby is a bit tight, but the rooms are fine and the breakfast buffet is good.
It's good value for money for those on a budget or on short business.
You will not be disappointed provided your expectations are realistic, given the price range this hotel is in. The area is not bad either, with quite a few shops within walking distance. Overall service is quite satisfactory too.

I visited Muscat for a work related trip and chose to stay at this hotel. The hotel staff were very kind to upgrade me to Suite room at the cost of a normal room.

The restaurant here has variety of food options in its in-house restaurant and I particularly liked the fact that the hotel has buffet for all the 3 meals.

The room has antique style furniture which I liked a lot - personal preference though - some may not like.

Overall, the stay was comfortable and in my opinion I will chose this hotel again if I visit Muscat again.

Annoyingly the hotel car failed to pick us up. The airport rep from sister property tried to help but failed suggesting I call the hotel. Jumped in a cab instead. Hotel is about 15 mins from airport. Following the predictable rant and apology from the hotel manager we shook hands. The room was on the executive floor was large spotlessly clean with two large beds and excellent a/c. Had dinner in the restaurant which was open until 10.30. buffet style good choice and quality. Kitchen can be seen through window, This was also spotlessly clean. Meal was good value. Breakfast was average but adequate. receptionist a bit clueless with the change at checkout ( paid in cash) but supervisor sorted promptly. Taxi ordered and was waiting. Would stay again for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for Room on executive floor if available

The Inn is nice and clean over all but the lobby is out dated...it looks like you are in the 70's.
Breakfast is severed at the Alluban hall and it good overall. But the breakfast itself did not impress me

I stayed in Tulip inn for nearly two years as a long stay guest while I was working in Oman , the hotel has nice one bedroom suites and it is excellent for long stay guests like me , Staff and Management makes you feel home , the restaurant has variety of food every day breakfast , lunch and dinner buffet, staff are very friendly and they do all what they can to make your stay pleasant. The location of the hotel is excellent and you have everything nearby like opera house , grand mosque , grand mall and many restaurants in the same area. I would recommend it to business and tourism travelers

We checked in to this hotel and were upgraded to a suite; I could not fault the room. The staff were all very friendly and the restaurant served good food at reasonable prices for Muscat.

The only downside is the location in that it is nigh on impossible to walk from the hotel to the beach / seafront. We had a hire car but did not want to have the hassle of using it in Muscat. As the crow flies it is not far from the coast but the huge road (8-10 lanes) bisecting Muscat makes walking there hopeless. Taxis are easy to find - but agree the price first.

Can't comment on the hotel itself, as they had overbooked and when I arrived late at night they said that they had no rooms left. They had arranged a room in another hotel, which was very poor and more expensive.
