Over Golden Tulip Hotel Nizwa
Het Golden Tulip ligt even buiten Nizwa City, op ongeveer een uur rijden van Muscat. In de omgeving liggen oude forten, kleine bergdorpjes en kleurrijke marktjes, waardoor deze omgeving een echt Arabische sfeer heeft. Proef de traditionele gastvrijheid bij de verschillende restaurants en bars. Als u zich bij het zwembad ontspant met een lekker koel drankje, ziet u de Hajar-bergen achter het hoofdgebouw opdoemen. Ook vanuit uw luie stoel kunt u van de omgeving genieten. Zo kunt u de interessante excursies combineren met een relaxt vakantiegevoel. Heeft u een dag over in uw planning, dan is dit zeker een leuke plek om een extra nacht te verblijven, zodat u op eigen gelegenheid door de buurt kunt wandelen.

• Diverse excursies
Na Muscat is Nizwa de belangrijkste toeristische bestemming van Oman. De stad ligt op circa 2,5 uur rijden van Muscat. Van oudsher is Nizwa een belangrijk centrum voor de traditionele zilversmeedkunst. Het is de oude hoofdstad van de Julanda-dynastie. Het fort van Nizwa is een van de oudste en indrukwekkendste van het land. De beroemde dierenmarkt in Nizwa, die meestal vrijdagochtend plaatsvindt, mag ook zeker niet in uw programma ontbreken! In de omgeving van Nizwa liggen de plaatsen Bahla en Jabrin met een prachtig versierd kasteel uit de 17e-eeuw. U leest het al, cultuurliefhebbers zullen in deze omgeving zeker aan hun trekken komen.
We stayed here 3 nights in March 2018. The hotel is in a fairly non-descript area just off the main road to Nizwa which is about 15-20 minutes drive away and with no other hotels or restaurants in the immediate vicinity. We arrived mid-morning and were very pleased to be given a room straight away which was very welcome having just arrived on the overnight flight from London with a 90 minute drive from Muscat airport. The room was a decent enough size and looked out onto the swimming pool area with trees full of busy birds & butterflies that we could sit on the terrace and watch. There was a decent sized safe, tea & coffee making facilities and a TV that didn't have much of interest on it. The bed was comfortable, the aircon worked well as did the complementary wi-fi. The bathroom felt a little tired & dated. Outside was a very good sized swimming pool that is temperature controlled so even in early March it was lovely & warm. On the downside there weren't that many sunbeds so later in the afternoon as people return from days out it can be difficult to find a lounger. We found the food to be very good in general. It's quite expensive (the daily BBQ buffet is about Â£25 per person and breakfast options range from about Â£8-Â£15 per person) but it was the best food we came across outside Muscat. There was also an a la carte restaurant and room service which both used much the same menus. Again, the food was very good. Alcoholic drinks were very expensive (as they are across Oman) with a bottle of beer coming in at about Â£7-Â£8. There was plenty of parking space at the front of the hotel but there were a lot of coach parties coming. I'm glad we picked this hotel which was very good value for money in terms of the room cost and was also a great base for visits to Nizwa, Bahla, Jabal Al Akhdar or Jabal Shams which are all within 20-90 minutes drive.
Excellent position for Nizwa (suq and goat and cattle market) and all surrounding history (Jabrin, Bahla Forts etc) and stepping off into the mountains (Jabel Shams and Jabel Akhdar). Comfortable, Good food friendly, excellent barbeque in spring around pool. Comfortable large room, bathroom getting a bit tired.
We stayed at this hotel in March 2018. The hotel was located in a very panoramic area and the facilities were very nice and clean. It had the a nice architecture and very traditional decorative features. The service was great and we felt right at home. Employee Milan went out of the way to help us in making comfortable our stay.
The Staff and Management from the doorman ,reception,restraunt ,housekeepers gardeners,all very friendly,Faye on reception is lovely and willing to help.food is excellent cooked fresh to order,you can order from the pool area and eat there too.Bbq is excellent with lots of choice.Rooms spotlessly cleaned to a very high standard.
"A bit disappointing"
This Golden Tulip hotel is quite a distance from the center of Nizwa and a car is essential. This is a place where a lot of tour groups are booked, so if feels a bit touristy. The lobby is very nicely decorated with nice Arabic elements. Check-in was somewhat unpleasant as we got into a discussion on the maximum age of a child and whether this was clearly stated during reservation. We found a good compromise with the manager to pay for an extra breakfast but not for an extra bed. We got a room in the building behind the pool. We had to walk through corridors where in some of them piles of chairs etc where kept, so it really felt like we were in some kind of back room. In our reservation we specifically asked to prepare the sofa bed for our daugher. Upon arrival this was not done and we had to call reception to ask somebody to bring linens etc. The room itself looked worn and when we entered the room it smelt like it had been out of use for some time. Breakfast was nice with a good variety of items. We didn't got to use the swimming pool but it looked really inviting. From our review it is obvious that we were disappointed with the Golden Tulip. The issue for now is that there are not many alternatives available in this price range and this hotel has basically the monopoly in the area. As tourism in Oman is growing rapidly and the Nizwa area has some really nice highlights (Nizwa fort and souq but also the Jabrin and Bahla fort and Jebel Shams in the area), we are sure that more attractive options for travellers will emerge in the not so distant future.
