I have stayed in other Intercontinental hotels in 3 different countries. This one isn't really up to the standard, I am bit surprised how IHG allows this! Just to give you a sample: - bathroom door doesn't lock easily, a pain when you have 1 .5yrs old running around - balcony wasn't cleaned when we took the room, cigarette butts... More

When i first booked this hotel I compared the benefits of a Club Room vs normal room and decided on the Club Room, I am so glad i did! I emailed the hotel directly (after originally booking via Booking.com) and they assured me that the the benefits would remain during ramadan, including 2 hours free alcohol consumption in the evening...

The Intercontinental is my favorite hotel in Oman. I used to go here a lot for business and even for pleasure this hotel is my favorite. I regard this as my second home in Oman. The hotel is one of the oldest ones in Oman but it has been kept very well 'up-to-date' over time. Staff is very friendly, the... More

Whilst working in Muscat I spent my afternoons either by the pool or in the gym at the InterCon. All the staff are wonderful and make a real effort to get to know the guests, especially the regular families which come from the Embassy districts. Gym is great, a wide range of free weights and lots of machines- those not... More

I stay here for a week on business. This is a very nice hotel. The room was spacious and clean and had a nice view of the Gulf of Oman. The pool area is nice. There is a nice Trader Vic's onsite which is convenient for dinners. Over all a very nice hotel.
