After a tour the day after in the city we enjoied also dinner at the hotel restaurant, good quality and correct prices! the hotel has also a private and free parking area.

Al Maha International Muscat

Hotels are very expensive in Muscat so for the price we paid (75,00 Euro per night, breakfast included) this was a very good choice. This hotel was quite new with a beautiful lobby and spacious rooms. In the room we found a nice sitting area with coffee and tea facilities. We also found some fresh fruit in our room. Also there was a large LCD TV. Air conditioning worked very well. We were able to control the temperature and the direction of the air. The bathroom was quite small but with a very good shower. On the roof of the hotel there was a small swimming pool (good water temperature) and a fitness room. The hotel offers free WIFI but when we used it the connection was really slow.

The staff was very friendly, all over the hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a great variety. At breakfast we were served by Mr. Dinesh several times and he was a very helpful and polite.

The only minus of this hotel was it’s location. It’s quite near to the Grand Mosque but far away from the rest of the interesting sites in Muscat. The area around this hotel is a living area with a lot of apartment buildings and also few large building sites. But it’s near the main motorway so you can reach every part of Muscat within 15-20 minutes.

Compared to all other hotels we had in Oman this was the best one by far. This was the only hotel able to meet western standards for a reasonable price. Because of this we give it 5 stars.

The staff was very friendly and checked us in in no time. Free (WiFi)internet and complementary fresh fruit in our room. Rooms are spacious and clean, we loved the shower (good water pressure!). The sport facilities and swimming pool is on the (roof)top floors and there you have a lovely view over Muscat.

Dinner and (alcoholfree) drinks (mocktails) are very good (especially the steak and the Indian food).

We came back to this hotel after a trip through Oman and got an upgrate to one of their best rooms (VIP). Nice that they appreciate travellers who return to their hotel and act on it (if possible).

Staff is willing to give any information you want and also tries to make your stay at the Al Maha and in Muscat as pleasant as possible.

We will be back next time we visit Muscat.

Nice clean hotel with reasonable sized rooms except that they have split A/C units fitted directly above the bed! You are blasted by cold air and the noise in unbearable. I could not sleep and checked out the next morning. Breakfast in the restaurant was OK but nothing great. The floors are marble tiles and you are disturbed by guests just walking by in the corridor.

I made a fast very early day trip to Muscat from Qatar(next time I will stay longer as it is a lovely gem) Seeb Airport and Oman Airways are very good and customs desk was friendly to a big sleepy Canadians who didn't know anything. I wanted a room near the airport to meet my business colleague, a place to get cleaned up and have some sleep. Staff were accomodating, friendly and made sure I knew about the light and tasty breakfast buffet. Hotel is spotless, bathrooms have tiled showers rather than tubs which is fine for someone on the run. Al Maha is not near any beauty spots so I would characterize it as better for the business traveler. Bed was comfortable, room quiet and A/C fine. Manager was eager to know that everything was good and happy to hear the affirmative. Kind Arab hospitality and people in Muscat people are exeptionally kind.
