This hotel is clean.... not much else rosy to say about it really!
The room and bathroom are small. There are no extras, no comb, shower cap etc. The mini bar was empty. The water was leaking in the bathroom, the drainage was a little blocked.
The hotel is a little bit worn down.
However the price is above average for this hotel. We paid 59 Rials for a single room! Not including breakfast. (Watch out for the taxes because these are added later).
The area is not that interesting for tourists, however there are around 4 hotels next to each other, all of them more or less the same price.
You can walk to Muscat Mega Mall and Lulu's in 10 - 15 minutes, but not during the summer as this would be too hot. The official summer starts from 15th June to 15th September.
There is a Tulip hotel down the road, their rooms are much bigger and the price is the same, - or you would pay 65 Rials including breakfast.
O.T. You can drive to Dubai in 5 hours, the roads are very good. The petrol very cheap, in fact extremely cheap. To Dubai and back cost us 10 Rials in petrol!
Muscat is a lovely city, it is a bit like Greece of Arabia, low raise buildings, calm and friendly people. I can highly recommend the place for holiday.
