“Very good budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Stayed for two nights in January.
Found this hotel to be very clean, seemed quite new and was exactly what I required at the right cost.
Staff were friendly and hotel was well located to get anywhere. Busy area so taxis were easily accessible.
I would definitely stay here again.

The room amenities were fine. It has what a business traveller needs for a brief stay - fast wifi, compact and quiet room, helpful staff, and a fine restaurant.

All these are on top of its perfect proximity with stores, coffee shops, restaurants and bakeries.

We stayed at the hotel in between connecting flights and it is a good place, 15 minutes from the airport. They provide free wifi and breakfast is not included. For a touch of islam, there is a mosque pretty close which tends to wake you up in the morning.

+ basic but very clean, spacious rooms
+ good value for money (good offers on booking.com)
+ location is good: lots of restaurants and a big mall near by
- call to prayer wakes you up in the morning
- room is not that quiet (voices from the corridor and other rooms could keep you awake)

If you are only looking for a clean place to sleep in, this is your choice!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

The Samara is a modest, clean hotel with a very nice staff. From the moment we checked in to now (this is our 4th night) we have been impressed with everyone. Qatar Airlines lost our luggage and the staff did everything to help us get it back. They kept calling the airport without us asking. The little restaurant has excellent Turkish coffee. The room is clean. The only issue is the water pressure and hot and cold spurts while showering! But who really cares! Our room faced a huge and at night illuminated mosque. We were woken by the early morning prayer...pretty nice way to wake up! We did not care since Muscat is a day city and not much to do at night city. Just buy a bottle of liquor before arriving and relax at the hotel. Great price in a very expensive city and most taxi drivers know the hotel name so no problems getting around.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mosque!

Nice spacious rooms, the top ones even have sea view. Housekeeping service was very efficient, the room was very clean. Nearby are a couple of restaurants, an awesome Iranian buffet is just down the road. If you are coming by car from the airport, you will get mad finding the road that leads to the hotel. Although it doesn't make any sense, you have to drive way past the hotel and take the turn-off to Zakher Shopping Mall and then drive all the way back on the street that runs parallel to the highway, Dohat Al Adab. On this street, you drive until you reach the Ibis Hotel. Then it's a right turn and another immediate right turn. Took me 2 hours to figure that one out ;-) The restaurant in the hotel is not recommendable.

Centrally located.Service is very good.Stayed there for four days with family. Staff were very much obliged. In fact they have installed TV channel set off box to view our favourite TV programmes.

Only area where the improvement required is restaurant. You have wait for fillings ( breakfast) because invariably you will see an empty food container. Otherwise it is a good hotel to stay.
