This property consists of "hotel apartments", which are spacious units that include a living room and kitchen as well as a bedroom or bedrooms. The accommodation is extremely good value in what can be an expensive city. The location is somewhat away from the waterfront and the older parts of town, so a taxi will be needed for most destinations -- but Muscat is such a large, elongated city that this would be true of just about anywhere you stay.
The lobby area is uncompromisingly modern in its decor (lots of red, yellow, and black) with a slightly edgy and interesting musical soundtrack in the background. There's a coffee bar and a good Thai restaurant, the latter being particularly welcome in a country where most of the restaurant food is predictable and ho-hum. A good buffet breakfast was included in my rate.
My apartment was scrupulously clean and comfortable, although the furniture was more the off-the-rack type than anything special. There was a lack of spare electrical outlets, so it was necessary to disconnect lamps or other appliances in order to charge one's own phone or laptop. There was a good TV with English language channels and the kitchen had basic equipment. Free milk and tea and coffee bags were supplied daily. There is free high speed wi fi with a strong signal.
The hotel is well managed by an Australian gentleman, Mac Thompson, who personally welcomes guests and proved most amiable and informative. The staff are well trained, cheerful, and helpful.
This is definitely a good option for a stay in Muscat, and a nice change from the typical hotels.
