“The price is right”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

An enjoyable 8 day stay in a spacious 4th floor studio room, king size bed, lounge, 2 TV's, kitchen area (not equipped apart from hot-plate and kettle but one could self cater reasonably well), bathroom with bath & shower. Friendly staff eager to please.
Did not use the restaurant, swimming pool or gym as we were out and about all day. Rental car is essential as there are no amenities nearby other than the hotel. 7 min drive from The Wave, 15 min Carrefour at Muscat City Centre Mall, 20/25 min Airport.
1 min to the beach that runs between The Wave and Seeb. Best time is low tide early morning week-days as by 4pm your space will be invaded by footballers, quad bikes and 4x4's etc. Local showed me an essential addition to his smart phone - a dog whistle app to deter wandering feral dogs - I did see one but it avoided us. Very much a working beach for a daily number of fishermen who haul their catch between 2 boats and then hitch the net to two 4x4's to land the contents.
Construction work has begun (Nov 2012) on a similar sized building on an adjoining plot. Did not disturb our stay as it was low level work but as the build height increases it may well impact on your stay.
The hotel suited our requirements and purse in every way and will suit others who are on business trips nearby or for tourists who only require a base from which to explore the vicinity and return for a night's sleep. Not licensed.
Gone are the days when Muscat was a tranquil paradise - sad to say that despite road improvements, traffic volume and dangerous driving worsens every year!

Room Tip: Studio rooms seem to be the best value

A shorty visit around the Emirates and Oman was on schedule lately. Arrival at Muscat Airport by Lufthansa from Abu Dhabi late in the evening. The decision was quickly done for a hotel close to the airport. Eastin Residences fits perfectly. Also during nighttime and the not that really well signed roads I´ve made it on the first attempt by rentalcar to reach the hotel. A really nice welcome from the front desk. A room on the third floor with seaside view was prepared for me and no time to wait during check-in.
The room clean, spacious and well designed arabic style.
Free Wifi works with a good connection rate.
Also the bathroom spacious and fitted with a bathtub.
No noise around during the night, a real good time to sleep here.
Breakfast is on offer from 6.30 am, no buffet style this time, it seems there are not to many guests during my stay. Everything what I need on offer, served with a smile.
Also no time to wait during check out managed by a very nice young woman.
Also the front office manager talked to me and asked about my impressions.
All in a recommendable place to stay close to Muscat airport.
Downsides?:
The room I´ve asked for by mail was prepared, but no mail response, something what I prefer to know if they noticed my request.
And it needs ages till the hot shower water reached my room early in the morning.
Or maybe I was simply to early for the usual standard here!.

Greetings from Eastin Residnce Muscat,May I begin by thanking you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel on Trip Advisor. This feedback is invaluable as it not only allows us to see where we are meeting or exceeding the needs of our guests but also where we have to pay attention in other areas.
In this regard I have asked our chef to re look at our breakfast offerings, regarding our location we are near the airport so therefore out of town. I do hope you will come back and enjoy our new breakfast and comfy beds.
Mark H.

Brand new small hotel/residence in Al Seeb, just 25km from the centre of Muscat. A decent place, very clean, comfortable rooms and some really friendly and cooperative staff. Unfortunately, the swimming pool was closed and the rooftop restaurant still not in use.
It's seems like ''middle of nowhere'' but actually is very near everything e.g. Qurum Beach, Chedi Resort, all the tourist destination also near by, but closed for any holiday and Fridays!
If you look for something fancy and posh, don't go there, but if you go with friends or relatives for the proper sightseeing and fun for very affordable price, this is the place!

Room Tip: Go for higher floors in the middle!

We had needed to book a reasonable hotel for three of us and due to late notice and budget we were forced to find a hotel that was not on the beach. Lucky for us this suite filled hotel fit the bill. It has: good views for some rooms, spacious rooms(ours was two bedrooms, living room, kitchenette and three bathrooms.) Breakfast was included which offered both hot and cold choices. Room service was available. We also had dinner there which was delicious and around 15 American dollars; quite the bargain. There is no alcohol served at this facility. I happily recommend this place!

This newly opened hotel is near the seafront and about 30 km from Muscat Old Town, 15 mins drive from the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and 10 mins from the airport. The room was quite comfortable, with clean, modern deco and en-suite. It was part of a three room apartment with a small kitchenette for use if you wanted. There is a restaurant on the ground floor which serves various foods, such as middle east, thai and indian which was quite nice. Breakfast was OK but choices were limited.The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. There is also an indoor roof top swimming pool and a gym. Although free wi-fi was available, the connection was very poor, making it almost impossible to use it as it kept dropping off. This was noted as an issue to the receptionist so hopefully they will get this sorted. There are some wired business computers in the lobby that were better and which you can use. There are no restaurants around the area and with no good internet connection, it made our stay a bit inconvenient as we couldn't look up anything for our further journey. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Muscat area.

I got a chance to stay with Eastin while i had a official trip from Abu Dhabi to Muscat last month and i was surprised with the warm welcome and good service. It took only 2 minutes to check in and my studio room was very well arranged with a welcome letter from management. During my stay with Eastin i found every thing uncomplicated and relax. All hotel staff tried to assist me and took care of me very well. For sure i am going to stay with them in the future.

Room Tip: Studio Room is a best value for money - request high floor

Just returned from a business trip to Oman and stayed at Eastin Residences Muscat. I have to say I was very impressed. It's very convenient being only 15 mins from the International Airport and located a 5 minute walk from the Seeb Corniche and Beach.

From the moment I stepped in the door until I left the service was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for the ever smiling and attentive staff.

The rooms are spacious and very well equipped. My room had 2 LCD TVs and a kitchenette and perfect aircon for the sweltering heat at this time of year. A great night's sleep on the very comfortable bed.

There is a fully equipped gym and swimming pool with bar at the top with stunning views of the Corniche and Muscat.

A special mention must be made about the food in their "4 Corners" restaurant. Absolutely delicious. All full range of international and local dishes at very good prices. As I recall their chef used to work in 5 star establishments and it shows.

Being a brand new place it is immaculately clean. Great prices for short or long term stay.

I would not hesitate to recommend Eastin Residences to anybody visiting Muscat.
