I had a business trip to Muscat to visit a public authority there. the authority informed me that the platinum is their choice for special rates they gave. I entered room 612, the toilet was not flushed, there is mess there... room smells, TV was not working (later on worked with lots of disturbance) I begged the receptionist to give... More

Centrally located although such is Muscat you need transport to get around. Comfortable and clean hotel with a good choice at breakfast. Roof top pool and fitness centre. Free wifi throughout and will provide you with log in details for lap tops and phones. Recommended if you are in this part of Muscat.

A well designed hotel with traditional style which has clean rooms and average breakfast. It's internet service is very week, even horrible. It's position is good specially if you have to go to different parts of Muscat.

This hotel must have one of the most well maintaned and clean reception areas I have been to. However, rooms are not even closely matching hotel exteriors. Noisy aircon, unexposed electrical wires, there was water left in the bath tub (welcome from the previous visitor). If you look for reasonably priced hotel in Muscat, this could be your choise.

Recently stayed for 1 night, nice clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. A special mention needs to go to Neenu on reception who deserves a gold medal for being so patient with my friend and I. She helped us book trips at a moments notice, made calls for us and leant me a scarf. Swimming pool quite small... More

Had a very comfortable short stay in this nice looking hotel, love the layout and cleanliness; very friendly and welcoming staff. Breakfast was OK. The location is also quite nice with a bunch of nice restaurants nearby and hypermarkets as well.

I stayed in this hotel for one night and found it to be reasonably priced. Nice hotel where we get value for the money paid. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff quite courteous and helpful with a smile. Breakfast reasonably good.

The rooms are nice and comfortable allowing for a good nights sleep. The pool on the roof is very small and perhaps a nice to have but nothing spectacular. Only a hand full of sun loungers but I expect the purpose for staying here would be mainly business. The location is not far from town but with the traffic the... More

Breakfast not spectacular but acceptable when you are there for just a few days.. in the evening you can walk to the Radisson for a... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The staff were friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean, however was only provided with one small towel and no toilet paper. Early morning I could hear some loud banging from upstairs which was annoying. The pool area was small and was covered so couldn't really sunbathe.
