Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Good hotel for an overnight stop and wanting to be in time for the Friday suq in Nizwa. Rooms are big with lots of obsolete furniture and have comfortable beds. Breakfast is what you might expect. Wifi should be included in the room rate which it isn't. Unfortunately the pool is undergoing renovation, just like the main road in front of the hotel. The latter causing some noise.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

This hotel is great for an overnight stop while touring the area. Slight problem is the road noise but they can't do anything about that. It is on the main road into Nizwa so is in a convenient location. The staff were very helpful, the room is large and large bed, very clean with complimentary water, and a good bathroom. The evening meal was fine, the breakfast not terribly exciting but adequate.

The hotel is huge and accommodate western tour groups. Food in the dining room, especially the fresh fruit drinks were very good. Good and comfortable rooms. The lobby is small but have a cute little kiosk where one can buy books on Oman. A friendly staff made our overnight stay comfortable.

Despite the fact that the reviews for this hotel are not really good we made a booking and were pleasantly surprised. It had all we had asked for: a very clean 2 bedroom suite (3 single beds in one bedroom, a large double bed plus a single bed in the other bedroom, two full baths, a small living room plus a room with a table and a huge fridge) for the four of us (2 adults, two teenagers). The furniture was somewhat outdated, yet everything was in good working order. In the bathroom plenty of vanity items were provided, not just the standard soap and shampoo collection, but also shaving kits and hairbrushes.

Noise from the roundabout in front of the hotel was audible but not too bad. A/C was weak in one bedroom, but very good in the other bedroom and the living room. We did not hear noise from neighboring rooms or the floor above us. The pool in the yard was kind of a let-down, the water was very cold (cooled?) and the since the filters did not work (water line below filter openings) I was not sure about the water quality. However the water looked clean and there were buckets full of chlorine stacked up in one corner of the yard, therefore I assume it was ok, at least we did not catch anything. A sufficient number of sunbeds were provided.

The big surprise was breakfast, which was much much better than expected after reading the reviews. It is true, by western standards the dining hall is not very appealing, but I think that's how it is in this part of the world. The food, however, was surprisingly good. There was a decent selection of standard western breakfast items (toast, jam, scrambled eggs, sausages etc.) as well as some oriental dishes and a huge table with all kind of Omanian pastries, both sweet and hearty. In short, there was plenty for every taste. Service was friendly and attentive.

The hotel is on the fringe of the old town, only about 3 km from the Souks. There are some restaurants nearby, among them a Pizza Hut.

Staff at the front desk was polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Parking is free in front of the hotel.

Despite the odd furniture we liked the hotel and would stay there again. Remember it is only a 2* hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street might experience noise from the traffic in the roundabout.

This hotel is outside of the old town and the rooms are nice and quiet. The swimming pool is very refreshing. Dinner at the hotel is very tasty and has a reasonable price. The rooms are very big here with great a/c. The staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: the rooms number on the ground floor around the swimming pool are 5-9

We stayed on night in the Al Diyar on our tour of Oman. The hotel is basic but the rooms are clean with clean bedding. It was adequate for our needs for one night and the breakfast was warm and plentiful.

Positioned on a major road outside of the city among a number of new car franchise dealerships this (dry) hotel offers a mid range price for the traveler. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds (well mine was) clean with a good toilet/bathroom/shower,TV and telephone, although some of our party didn't get their wake-up call as their telephone failed to work. It boasts a smallish swimming pool but in rather drab surroundings.. The main reception area is comfortable and always manned by English speaking staff. The buffet breakfast range was cosmopolitan and well supplied from the nearby kitchen.
As a one night stop over this hotel met all our requirements.

Room Tip: My room was on the ground floor, the door facing the pool (no noise) and the window facing the road...
