Check in - warm, friendly, good humoured.
Request for extra bed - given for free and quickly and completely 'made up' including extra towels despite being the early hours of the morning.
Wifi - free!
Rooms - good size, well equipped, 'made up' and cleaned couteously everyday
Restaurants / Bars - A nice little selection - not overly expensive, good service.
Location - Fairly centrally located (as much as you can be in Muscat!)

I'd book here again without hesitation.

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip to Muscat and had a room on the 4th floor which was one of the rennovated rooms.

This was a smoking room and whilst I do smoke myself, I very rarely smoke indoors especially in an area where I have to sleep. The room did have the lingering aroma of smoke, I suspect coming from the long net curtains. If the curtains were removed and shutters added, this would elimate the odour.

The bed was large and comfortable but the pillows were quite lumpy. The shower screen in the bathroom did not fit well causing the floor to become soaked while showering.

Other than those small issues, the room was large, quiet (despite facing the main road) with all standard amenities. The wireless internet worked very well and there's a large selection of English speaking tv channels.

The food was good (Olivio's & Coffee Grind) and the service in the restaurants & bar was excellent.

The staff at the front desk were also excellent, helping me with my lost luggage and ensuring that the check in/out process was extremely smooth.

I had previously stayed in the Grand Hyatt in Muscat and was initially disappointed when I arrived at the Radisson however the staff & service here soon changed my mind!

I stayed at this Hotel for one night in October for a business trip. Actually I was searching pretty long to make the right decision and I made the right one! Although nearly 60% of the hotel rooms were closed due to renovation I have heard nothing in terms of noise. I was lucky because the night I stayed there they have had a BBQ which was really a great night, perfect food, super friendly employees and nice music. I have to admit that I haven’t expected this and the night had the flair of a resort hotel somewhere in a beach destination.
The room were clean and very well equipped. On arrival I was welcomed like they have been waiting for me to arrive.
Great stay.

Hotel is in the middle of very crowded city area, right under the highway. Very slow and sleepy staff unable to give us any advice or recomend anything.

This is a very good business class hotel.

The room I had was very clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. When I stayed the internet connection was free - a nice touch. There are a couple of restaurants and a bar. The breakfast was excellent, and the restaurant menu good and generous. A tip if you don't fancy the buffet, which can be on the expensive side if you are not hungry, then ask for a price on one of more of the dishes in the buffet. It worked out very good value.

Nice pool, and a clean, well equipped gym.

Only small quibble is that it is a little difficult to get to, involves you going around a number of roundabouts, but this is a very small complaint.

Recommend.

We stayed at the Radisson Blue for 3 nights with our 9 months old baby, the room was big enough and facilities were clean, their staff is friendly and very helpful. They arranged for a travel crib for my baby and also have nanny services, we hired a nanny for a couple of hours while we were watching the world cup and she was excellent. The pool is big enough and they also have a kids pool. Breakfast was very good and it is walking distance to the best seafood restaurant of Muscat. The front desk provides with internet codes to use unlimited internet in their business center. The only down is that the hotel is not close to the beach area but in our case we were not looking for that this time, very nice hotel, I would definitely go back again!
