This is thoroughly a 3-star hotel; the building is older but still in good repair. The rooms are clean and up-to-date, although smaller than one might expect. Parking is a bit of an issue, but that is no fault of the hotel as there is a big rocky outcropping right across the street, so there is nowhere to put a big parking lot. Traffic past the hotel moves quite quickly, so pulling out can be tricky during peak times. The food in the restaurant was fairly good. I bought the package where I could have breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The selection was limited to about half the menu, but it still gave a diverse selection of tasty, although not superb foods. The best asset this hotel has is its people, especially Nina in the front office. Whatever you need, they will do whatever it takes to make sure you are satisfied. I had thought Middle Eastern hospitality was simply a stereotype. But from my experience at this hotel in specific and around Oman in general, I see now that it is no myth. Thanks again to the entire hotel staff. If business ever brings me back to Oman, I will definitely stay here again.
