The location of the hotel is in the heart of Muscat's true business district: Ruwi. All the bus shuttles, baisa buses, and taxi drivers stop here. The area is essentially a Little India and is a very bustling neighbourhood both day and night. The hotel itself used to be part of the Accor Group's Novotel chain, but has since left;... More

Better than expected. Room was clean, comfortable and very big. The electricity was a bit strange and would just switch off at random times but perhaps I didn't get the hang of the system? Looks like you used to put your key in the slot to make it work but now they have card entry doors so that doesn't work?... More

I have stayed here a couple of times now and while the hotel is comfortable and clean, it is starting to show it's age.

The hotel could really benefit from... More

We spent two nights at the Ruwi Hotel while exploring the Muscat area. There were some aspects that were enjoyable (breakfast/ sleep quality) and others that were not so good (bathroom/ general ambiance). We chose this hotel because it offered free parking and a location near to Muttrah. We had hoped that finding the hotel would be easy, but the... More

Hotel Ruwi, Muscat is clean, comfortable, helpful front desk, good breakfast, enjoyable pool. The location is semi-convenient but it is not really a problem. The hotel has evening features for dining. Relaxing stay.
