Everything is great here. The rooms are big and very clean. The in-hotel restaurant is so cheap and delicious that we ended up taking several of our meals there when we had planned to eat out more. The wifi is good (but you'll have to re-up your login info every 24 hours). I found that a taxi drivers didn't know... More

We stayed at Samara Hotel and the staffs are nice and accomodating. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and the food was good. They also have a service car and the fare is cheaper than renting a taxi. We will definitely check in there once we visit Muscat again.

Hotel is well located halfway between the airport and old Muscat/Matrah, next public beach (Qurum) is a 7 min drive away. Rooms are spacious, beds ok but bathrooms definitely need a good refurbishing. Staff very helpful and friendly. WLAN is free but not very fast. Traffic on nearby expressway does not disturb, but rooms on 6th floor are disturbed by... More

The hotel is in a good location with a mid level of quality but the price is good If we stay in another hotel we would pay more for sure but it was good to find a mid range , Rooms are large near to the Khwair area where a lot of restaurants and facilities are in a step

Samara Hotel is very clean and well organised. The rooms are large and well equipped; especially considering the very reasonable price I paid for the room. I was using a wheelchair and the room was perfect for this, as was the extremely helpful attitude of the staff. Particular thanks to the fantastic and well organised Francis Peter and also to...

While the hotel is about 15 minutes from center city, the hotel staff made it worth while. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. When a tour we had booked did not show up, they were able to contact a car company( discovery rental L.L.C) that brought and picked up the car at the hotel, thereby saving what could... More

The rooms are adequate and the location is close to the Muscat Grand Mall. The breakfast is a waste of money however the staff are friendly and helpful. The proximity to the Mosque makes it noisy at times but overall it's an economical alternative to other hotels in Muscat.

Hotel is surrounded by nice ambiance. All the required amenities are available nearby. Having nice connectivity to all major locations. For me having a pure veg restaurant nearby was the greatest advantage.

We stayed at this hotel for one night after camping for four nights in muscat. The bed was comfortable, aircon was good. The staff was just ok. Common areas are a bit dated. Costs at least 6 rial each way to and from the airport.
