The hotel staff was slow and rude. They acted as if I was disturbing them by showing up. The woman at the front desk was more interested in texting on her phone than checking me in. After one night, I booked at another hotel. No pool and wifi in the room was very slow. Disappointed. I would not stay here... More

Good location, very friendly and helpful staff. Good service. Excellent value for money. You get what you pay for. The absence of breakfast is one bad thing about this hotel. My stay at Samara hotel was pleasant. Some of the hotel facilities can be renovated or improved.

Stayed for two nights in January. Found this hotel to be very clean, seemed quite new and was exactly what I required at the right cost. Staff were friendly and hotel was well located to get anywhere. Busy area so taxis were easily accessible. I would definitely stay here again.

The room amenities were fine. It has what a business traveller needs for a brief stay - fast wifi, compact and quiet room, helpful staff, and a fine restaurant. All these are on top of its perfect proximity with stores, coffee shops, restaurants and bakeries.

We stayed at the hotel in between connecting flights and it is a good place, 15 minutes from the airport. They provide free wifi and breakfast is not included. For a touch of islam, there is a mosque pretty close which tends to wake you up in the morning.

+ basic but very clean, spacious rooms + good value for money (good offers on booking.com) + location is good: lots of restaurants and a big mall near by - call to prayer wakes you up in the morning - room is not that quiet (voices from the corridor and other rooms could keep you awake) If you are only...

The Samara is a modest, clean hotel with a very nice staff. From the moment we checked in to now (this is our 4th night) we have been impressed with everyone. Qatar Airlines lost our luggage and the staff did everything to help us get it back. They kept calling the airport without us asking. The little restaurant has excellent... More

Nice spacious rooms, the top ones even have sea view. Housekeeping service was very efficient, the room was very clean. Nearby are a couple of restaurants, an awesome Iranian buffet is just down the road. If you are coming by car from the airport, you will get mad finding the road that leads to the hotel. Although it doesn't make... More

Centrally located.Service is very good.Stayed there for four days with family. Staff were very much obliged. In fact they have installed TV channel set off box to view our favourite TV programmes. Only area where the improvement required is restaurant. You have wait for fillings ( breakfast) because invariably you will see an empty food container. Otherwise it is a... More

Good ok spacious room equipped with most of the standard equipment: desk, closet, hairdryer, shampoo, soap, cable (or satelite) tv, good and stable internet, comfortable beds. The staff is really nice and helpful. Location is good as it is located right between old muscat and the airport. Easy to grab a cab just outside - and easy for cabs to... More
