There aren't many good mid-range hotels in Muscat, booked Ruwi because it was cheap and was very pleasantly surprised! Rooms basic but very spacious and spotlessly clean. Nice pool area and decent breakfast included in the price plus excellent free wifi, The décor is a bit tired and dated as you would probably expect but apart from that this is... More

I visited Muscat in Feb this year to attend an exhibition. The venue was in Ruwi Area hence the Ruwi Hotel. The check-in was swift, room was large enough with all basic amenities. Had a meal at the pool side lounge, nice ambience and feel. Food was average, tried Thai curry but it was highly disappointing, settled for their variation... More

We spent here 2 nights in March and was really good! The hotel is very easy to find from the airport and easy to get to the souq, promenade, etc. Free parking was a great advantage and safe. The room was big with 2 double beds (we went for twin, room), decent size bathroom and tea making facilities. The bed... More

With spacious, comfortable and well equipped rooms, the Ruwi hotel is a reasonably priced good hotel in the centre of Muscat. It' s not in the outstanding category and has a slightly tired feel, but it is a clean modern hotel and offers friendly service. Also a swimming pool if you have the time and inclination. It is not in... More

Wonderful, helpful, staff. As a hotel to base yourself from while visiting the surrounding area it is perfect with a great location. It's not the sort of hotel that you would stay in all day (e.g. with kids playing by the pool), but does offer more than enough to keep you comfortable in the mornings and evenings.

an average hotel in an average location. No real reason to stay here unless you have to. Perfectly friendly staff, but just nothing special to comment on. Wifi is good enough to use Skype, and there's a pool somewhere. Average breakfast.

Hotel has notmal facilities like any other hotel. I went to it with my friend as it is at nearby location from my camp area. I found the hotel location right in the middle of population where you get shopping, recreation, malls, business district etc.

Just returned from three nights at the Ruwi Hotel. The hotel is not a fancy chain but rather a simple independent hotel. Room are clean and they provided me with free transfer from the hotel. Cabs are easy to catch from their location or you can walk to the Bell Tower and enjoy a day on the Big Big tour.... More

Very spacious rooms with a bright atmosphere in the room. One of the biggest rooms I have stayed in that is not a suite. Good, clean shower. Friendly staff. Food at the hotel and in the area is limited. Hotel could do a better job of coordinating taxis for guests.
