The location is *really* hard to find - nevertheless, if you manage to reach it, the price-value ratio is good, with friendly staff, an average indian-run restaurant, spa facilities, and large rooms that are quite comfortable. A good stay overall - don't expect any better for the price in muscat as of now.

If you want a cheap, no frills, yet comfortable place to stay then the Mutrah Hotel is surely the one for you...It is extremely reasonable and great value for money. We stayed in the suite, which is a good choice if you are staying for a couple of nights. The location is fabulous, the old souk and the corniche are... More

Suitable if you just want a quick overnight cheap, clean and cheerful place to lay your head. Staff were so friendly it was heart-warming. The food was reasonably priced and tasty. Can walk to the Corniche and the Souq easily.

Back in February, I spent my last three nights three nights after teaching in Oman for six months in the Mutrah Hotel. It was an excellent experience. The price is very reasonable for the quality. The hotel is only a 15 minute and very straight forward walk from the Mutrak souq. My room was clean and comfortable. Even though the... More

We were visiting Muscat for a few days and the Mutrah Hotel was perfect for what we needed. Staff was attentive and polite, rooms were clean and modestly furnished and everything worked well. We didn't need a flashy place to stay, we just needed a solid place to come back and sleep and this was it. I'd recommend to anyone... More

Room was clean and wifi in room was free with fast connection. Hotel staff were not friendly or welcoming, though breakfast staff were friendly. 25 minute walk to waterfront corniche and souk. 20 minute walk to Ruwi, though currently made challenging by road works.

On my first night in town, had my friend "Eddy M" tag along with me so I can give him a gift that I got for him. We were stopped and asked for proof that I'm staying here, I presented him with the keys and told him the room number. The employees then told me that my friend is not... More

It's is claimed the Mutrah is Oman's oldest hotel. It's one of the features that makes it out of the ordinary. For a family of four it's the best deal in Muscat. It has a cosy bar that's open til 3am. The restaurant though a little gloomy has good Indian food at reasonable prices. The locale isn't glamourous and it... More

Found this hotel on the Lonely Planet website. My stay in Muscat was a last minute decision and this seemed like a good hotel until I found something different. I thought the quality was very good compared to the marginally cheaper hotels closer to the water and so I ended up staying for a week and using this hotel as... More
