The Ruwi is in a convenient position in the city and has potential to be a very good hotel, but to say it is tired is to be quite kind. It is quite old fashioned and not well planned. The public areas don't flow, and are not particularly welcoming or cosy. The rooms are getting quite tatty and are decidedly... More

We spent a delightful two nights in the Ruwi Hotel. Staff were attentive and friendly (Shanavas), organising dinner reservations and a dolphin sightseeing trip. It was a short 10min walk to pick up the Big Bus tour at 9:10am in time to catch the shuttle bus to tour the Grand Mosque. The hotel itself did not disappoint, our adjoining rooms... More

A pleasant place to spend a couple of nights in Muscat. Rooms were very clean and comfortable although a little chilly as I couldn't seem to turn the AC down. Hotel staff were on the whole friendly and happy to help. Pool was clean and nice enough to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. Location was fine for... More

Just back from 3 nights in the Ruwi Hotel in Muscat. First off, location is ideal if you have a car, whilst not far from most attractions, taxi fares could easily rack up. Upon arrival the lobby area seemed somewhat dated and a bit dull on it. The receptionist was polite as were all staff. We had opted to pay... More

I love being in Oman and on picking up my car at the airport I had a look at a few 3* and 4* hotels before deciding to return to the Ruwi hotel where I had stayed before. On arriving I was greeted by the staff who actually remembered me from previous occasions. I'm pleased I made the decision to... More

Muscat as a city is so vast and spread out. I booked the Ruwi Hotel for a four night stay during a recent visit to Muscat. The area in which the hotel is located is represented by it's name. Very commercial, very busy, and very crowded. When I booked this hotel, I made the choice from what I had read... More

Booked through internet got preferably good rates. Good location as taxi stand is next to it and most of the famous Veg Indian restaurants are at walking distance. Got a dull reception at arrival (no welcome drink & bell boy to escort to the room) but gradually things got improving. Reasonable sized room, clean toilets and comfortable beds. Took road... More

Loved the breakfast, dinner, politeness and kindness of staff (8yr old daughter even wrote 'thank you' letters to staff), location (great for local shopping and local restaurants) and amenities and services the hotel provided.
