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.

At the onset only - great value for money. The entrance to the hotel is quite a simple old style one. Check in process was quick and smooth. Got upgraded to a suite and greeted with welcome fruits! Room was really clean and comfortable. We had just taken the breakfast with our room - limited breakfast ensuring everyone gets what... More

Ruwi hotel is clean, has very friendly staff, and kids are more then welcome. The menu at the restaurant could have more variation, the breakfast is basic but has everything you need. Much better choice than the so called luxury version of the same hotel group - al falaj...

I have stayed in various hotels in Muscat over the past few years, and travelling solo I found the Ruwi Hotel almost perfect. It's fairly close to Muttrah which I consider to be the most interesting part of Muscat. A taxi there costs between OMR 2 and 3. Two of the stops of the Big (hop on hop off) Bus... More

At first, my first impressions of this hotel were soured since there was an issue with the shuttle transport from the airport to the hotel. When I arrived, I saw no driver with my name on it and after 40 minutes, I had to take a taxi only to find out from the hotel that the driver was actually still... More

The hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport depending on traffic. It is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The rooms are quite spacious and modern, and the staff is ok. Breakfast is served in the little restaurant, and there is plenty of choice whether you like a sweet or savory breakfast. They cook your eggs to order... More

Very impressed with the staff's efforts to make our stay a memorable one. Melvin and his team could not have done more to accommodate us, and this really made our trip. A great little hotel in a fabulous country. Jerry, Jean & Joe Aldous.
