“Very good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

We have arrived to Muscat airport at 5 am and decided to stay in this hotel just for a short sleep before check-out. Besides free transfer from airport (takes approximately 10-15 minutes) hotel has 24-hour desk thus giving you ability to check-in at any time and gives you a great option to have such short sleep for reasonable money.

For those who travel to Muscat for the first time it is a good hotel choice closer to airport if you arrive early in the morning. Besides this one is really close to Grand Mosque, which you could visit the next day morning if you wish.

Needed a car for this one but v well priced and large rooms. Good size pool and huge car park. Not a fan of the breakfast but staff very helpful. Business centre does free wifi for 1 hour per room per day.

I land at night, leave in the morning. Limited budget. This hotel has a published tariff of 60 Omani Rial for a single room, (one omani Rial is equal to 2.58 US Dollars).
If you book your room, in advance, the hotel will charge you just Rials 35. That includes, breakfast, two transfer, and that is the crowning glory.
When you hire a taxi, it might cost you 5 Rials one way. Well i used to get there, and very next day to get back to airport.
You need to phone and fix transfer from Muscat Seeb airport to the hotel, ( 15 minutes to hotel) and need to know their number.
I shall mention the phone number here. ++ 968 99881258
968 is the country code for Oman
If you are well booked, then, the hotel driver will come there with a caller board and visitors name on it.
Ideally the hotel staff will say, wait before the "Nawras" counter. the Nawras thing is the name of a phone company, that provides gsm ( mobile) phone here.
While waiting, you can buy a mobile sim here, all you need to do is to show your passport, and pay around 3 omani Rials, for local calls.
I was given a password to use the wifi internet, but the signals were not strong in my room.
I found others bringing their laptops to the lobby and doing the internet browsing.
The internet is free for one hour, after that you need to pay a rial or so for an hour.

If you have the time and inclination you may visit the gym or the swimming pool. These are free.

The restaurant is near the front office (lobby) and break fast includes eggs cooked to order, bread butter jam, muffins, fruits, including cut fruits, whole bananas, milk, juices, cereals, foul madams (egyptian bean curry) some indian snacks as well.
News papers are not brought into the rooms, you can collect one from the lobby and take to your room if you wish.
In the room, there is cable TV, has Arabic, English, Malayalam, Hindi channels to watch.
Rooms are clean, no cofee kettles though, that is a disadvantage.
There is a fridge, two small bottles of drinking water is kept, that is free.
There is room service, laundry, the usual stuff. Have not tried it.
The front office is generally freindly, so all is well, mostly

THE hotel has most the facilities you expect at a reasonable price, staff, pleasant , freindly, decent buffet meals and a good menu selection, nice pool, gym , reasonably priced internet.
if you need something just ask, pity they did not have a courtesy bus instead of using taxis.

Very nice hotel, large rooms and clean. The staff was excellent and extremely helpful. Breakfast very good. Only draw back is it is a good distance to any site. They do have 3 bars, so that was a big plus.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights on a business trip. It is a decent and clean hotel with friendly staff. However, it has basic amenities. Their food is not that tasty nor do they have variety. The breakfast is very basic for a 4 star hotel (what they advertise). Their gym is ancient but has all the needed machines. I was staying at the ground floor and could hear, starting 10 pm music pounding from what apears to be a disco. Being so tired every night, I was crashing with or without the music!

Room Tip: Choose a room which is upstairs and facing the pool. That way you will not hear the cars in the high...

I was looking forward to my stay in Muscat, but i had chosen wrong. it is in the middle of nowhere. the Local staff in the front desk are not friendly even though the foreign workers are very amicable. I dont think it is worth the money
