Stayed here 3 weeks in December, Staff was excellent up to and including the manager. The food was delicious and well priced. Beautiful pool and spa. I would stay here again as the hotel is so nice and almost brand new.

Good location, nice service, clean rooms. There was a trouble with internet connection and the keys. They had to magnetize them every day (sometimes even few times per day). I spent there almost a month, so it was very annoying after few days.

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.
