Stayed here for 1 night Jan 2015. Room was small, but clean. Hot water, firm bed, clean sheets, enough space for 1-2. OK location, average restaurants nearby but the Zawari Mosque is worth a quick look. Breakfast was adequate, waiter was really friendly and talkative, as the room was empty. Shame the other staff were generally rude and unfriendly, and... More

Arrived very early in the morning (well before usual check-in time) and was still given a room after a short wait. Staff were very helpful in detail nearby attractions and restaurants. The hotel itself is only 10-15mins away from the hotel (in traffic) and is situated very close to Muscat Grand Mall which also has a supermarket. I did not... More

was pleasantly surprised by the Samara. We arrived at 5 am, exhausted from an overnight flight, and the concierge was kind enough to arrange a room for us by 6:30, when someone checked out (regular check-in is about noon). The room was simple but very clean, with air-conditioning and a hot shower. Had a good night's sleep in a comfy... More

The hotel is located in the middle of the capital, with easy access to fast food joints and is always a 15-20 minute drive to most landmarks. The service is exceptionally good and the staff is very courteous For it's price its a very good deal.

Samara is highly recommended. It is a very good value for money hotel that is closer to the new city. Almost everything is closeby - malls, beache, food outlets, shopping etc. The rooms are very clean, the internet is good, and the food is also good. All in all, i would recommend Samara for a value for money stay in... More

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.
