“Economic Alternative - Muscat Area Apartment Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

This is not a conventional hotel, but it might be a good choice for people on longer stays in Muscat (weeks or months) or who have business in the Sultan Qaboos University area. Al-Khoudh is a short distance to the university.

Plusses:
- not a chain hotel, locally owned and managed
- very new---opened I think only a few months
- clean
- very nice, kindly staff
- walking distance to bank, grocery store and an abundance of Turkish, Omani and Pakistani restaurants
- kitchenette with fridge and stove
- most suites have a sitting room and a second bath
- not in a tourist part of town
- might be good choice for a group of, say, students or backpackers
- in room wi-fi albeit a little slow for big files ---free
- reasonable price
- Safe ---like most areas of Arab Middle East, except in periods of political turmoil
- a/c, flat screen, cable TV

Minuses:
- downtown Muscat, Qurum beach area and most other likely destinations require a taxi, a 1/2 hr to 1 hr ride and 4 RO (the cheapest I was able to get
- no other hotels in immediate vicinity; because it is new and not in tourist area ---taxi drivers usually did not know this place at all; take business card of hotel
- staff has somewhat limited English language skills (most guests appear to be Omani or from other Gulf countries); there was a Morrocan staffer who spoke French...I don't know at what proficiency
very nice people
- cleaning, bell staff were a bit too eager for tips
- I'm not sure how to describe the features of the rooms except to say that they are modest and kind of like what you would expect of a lower middle class home anywhere in Middle East
- no shower curtains...water spills to floor and evaporates or waits for staff cleaning; must pre-heat bath water (profligate American that I am, I usually forgot this feature and ended up with cold showers!)
- entrance is in an alley behind the hotel (a little tricky for drivers to find)
- no restaurant, but numerous local restaurants will deliver to your room
- no other amenities like health club or pool

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, but please recognize that this is somewhat like the ME version of a Red Roof Inn..except rooms are larger. fyi - I stayed here with a student group and cots were brought in to accomodate extra people in room

Room Tip: Some noise from restaurants at front of hotel until very early morning hours...may want to choose ro...
