We reached there late in the night and front office Wael helped us in direction. Other than him front office not that great.

Room:
We booked double room which looked one bed room with additional beds in the hall. room is clean and nice.

Breakfast is not good, not many options and does not have real taste.
Location
Location is good, close to center of city. just behind the hotel there many food places.

The hotel is nothing all that fancy but is was perfect for the 3 hours of sleep I needed to get before a full day of work. The location to airport and all of the meetings I had was great. Breakfast was good, price was amazing for an expensive tourist town. If you are looking for a good business stay, this would work. Nothing fancy but clean and nice enough for the very good price.

I am very disappointed to say that there was a little conflict with the front office manager Mr. Vahid .. The front office is the main element that gives an idea of the hotel. He had no clue of what he was doing and on top of that he was very rude in his tone.
Fortunatly this was not what Tulip inn was all about. I must say I had no problem with the stay or service and i was very comfortable with the rest of the management team who were hospitable and very concerned. It is important to get take care of the weak link who may really ruin a reputation.

the hotel is a little outside, in a new area full of hotels and restaurants. the room was very clean, big and comfortable and also the breakfast was nice.
the only downside was that the receptionists were not so helpful in giving us tourist informations.

For a 3 star hotel, the Tulip Inn definitely provides an enjoyable stay. My family and I stayed here over Eid for 3 nights. We were 3 adults. The rooms and bathrooms are large and spacious. Each room has a small sitting area and a small kitchenette (only a sink and cupboards). There's no stove if anyone plans to cook over a longer stay. The beds are a little hard, and since we were 3 adults we had to ask for an extra bed. But the mattress on the extra bed was very stiff ... I would recommend asking housekeeping for a softer mattress. The corridor does have a musty smell to it as someone had mentioned earlier, but that might be due to the carpets and it being an old building. The rooms themselves have no odor, and are clean and well-maintained. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. We requested their help in finding a suitable tour company for us, and they had a number of brochures at hand. The breakfast at the hotel was adequate. The breakfast menu doesn't change, so it can get repetitive after a few days. We ordered room service twice and although the choices on the menu were limited, the food was really quite good and portion sizes were large. I would not recommend the buffet dinner at the restaurant. For the price of the meal, the food was very disappointing (few choices and extremely salty food). For alternative dining, there is a TGI Friday's within walking distance and also what I believe is an Indian restaurant. There is also a supermarket close by. The wi-fi at the hotel is complimentary but the connection isn't very strong. TV channels are very basic (nothing better than BBC and CNN). Laundry service is good. The hotel is in a convenient location. Overall, good value for money and a pleasant stay. We would stay here again.

Tulip Inn is a 3star hotel pretending to be 4star. It was clean and the service was good. Unfortunately the corridors smelt of stagnant water and the beds/bedding was of inferior quality. It was in a good location.

We stayed there during this Eid. The room was spacious . Free wifi is good but they should enhance the quality of wifi. Good for short stay.Friendly staff . We enjoyed to stay in Tulip Inn. Breakfast was adequate and organized.
