Fodor's Expert Review Golden Tulip Nizwa

Hai a Thurat 611, , Ad Dakhiliyah, Oman

Though the rooms could use updating, the Golden Tulip Hotel is the best place to stay in Nizwa. It has a beautiful swimming pool, restaurant, café, sheesha lounge, and three bars with common spaces decorated beautifully with traditional Omani handicrafts. The front desk can arrange tours of the surrounding area, and staff are very knowledgeable about the local sights. It's also in a convenient location, about a five-minute drive from the main Nizwa square, where the souq and fort are located. The bars in the Golden Tulip are the only places to drink alcohol in Nizwa.
