Midan Hotel Suites, Muscat
Ranked #26 of 63 Hotels in Muscat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 May 2010

I have stayed at the Midan for approximately 4.5 months out of the last 8 and will be returning as soon as I can. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay whilst in Muscat. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to make one feel like a very valued guest while at the same time making it feel like returning home. The service is of an extremely high standard and the restaurant food is very very good, "the best Thai food in Muscat" I was told, by friends who live there, and I certainly agree with that. It may not have the luxury or the facilities of the hotels like the Chedi or the Al Bustan but the Midan is not trying to compete with the tourist market as such. It is an excellent business hotel with all the attention of a small, friendly, family run hotel and it deserves the esteem in which many of us travellers hold it.

I have had the pleasure of staying with Mac and the Staff of Midan on 3 separate occasions in the last 12 months totaling nearly 6 weeks. Two trips have been for business and I liked it so much we stayed there when my wife came to Oman for a short holiday.

The rooms are well appointed, tastefully furnished, in pristine condition with comfortable beds/furniture, everything is clean and works. The apartments are huge by comparison to others I have stayed in and even the Studios are spacious enough to be more than adequate for a working traveller for an extended period. The extra facilities such as fast wireless internet, gym, restaurant and health centre round out an excellent all round package.

All this said there is one thing that makes the Midan stand out - its staff. Without exception they are friendly, courtesious, professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. It makes a huge difference coming "home" after a long and tiring day to a welcoming smile with excellent food and service from either the restaurant or room service.

Be aware of the comments regarding location - if your business is in Ruwi then it may be considered a little out of the way but if you business is anywhere near the Airport, industrial areas or further afield (like mine) then this is perfect - close enough to the attractions of the Muscat/Ruwi areas without having to drive through the worst of the traffic twice a day every day. Sure there aren't too many "Western" style attractions in Al Ghubrah, but hey use the opportunity to get out and experience the best of the local culture and environment!

If you are a business traveller then is the ideal base, and it is right up there for a holiday maker who is looking to get amongst the real Oman rather than spending their time lazying around a pool.

I spent two months in Muscat on business and stayed at the Midan Suites. I can honestly say there is nothing to criticise! The suites are comfortable, spotlessly clean and easy to live in. The food in the restaurant/cafe is simple, fresh and very enjoyable. The entire team - the ladies that clean the rooms, the restaurant/cafe staff and the management team are superb...attentive but non intrusive, nothing is too much trouble. A well equipped kitchen allows flexibility for eating and laundry, but full hotel service is available for those not wishing to cater for themselves. I would recommend Midan to anyone going to Muscat on business, short stay or long stay - we will definitely continue to use it.

This is an excellent establishment with good food friendly staff, free and fast internet. But be warned if your doing business it can take over an hour to reach the CBD. There is also not a lot to do in the location.

This hotel is run by an Aussie bloke - Mac - and he will go out of his way to make sure your every need is accomodated. Great service makes the difference when you are travelling.

This was the second time we had stayed at the Midan Suites as the two bedroom suite option is very reasonable compared to getting 2 double rooms at other hotels in Muscat. From booking in over email to arrival the service is exceptional and a real treat when comparing to the usual middle east shenanigans and confusion.
Unfortunately our trip was marred by a medical emergency, in which the staff went above and beyond during the incident and then in the days afterward. They showed real care and concern and also rang the hospital to check on the patient etc, which they did not have to do at all, as well as providing a great breakfast for us in our room as we were too late/tired to eat in the restaurant.
The Thai restaurant is great as well.
I can't help but think that if we had have been at the heaps more expensive Chedi, Al Bustan etc, then the staff response would not have been half as warm and caring.
Great management shows through great friendly staff, what you need after a day exploring Muscat!

Just what we needed in a new country. We could not pay the absurd prices of the big hotels, but nor did we want to chance something that might not be reliable. The Midan Suites was an excellent compromise. We could cater for ourselves, buying from the very western-style supermarket a few blocks away, or we could eat out if we wanted. With the money we saved, we were able to buy pool passes for the Crown Plaza hotel and visited the al -Bustan. The staff at the Midan Suoites could not have been more helpful and efficient, and the standard of accomodation was immaculate. Excellent!
