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 is in a great, central location with a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. There is a great little pool area with a restaurant and bar area. 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.

Our 1st visit to Oman and Ruwi Hotel met all our requirements for sight seeing to Old Muscat and the Grand Mosque. The hotel is well positioned, about 20 mins. from the airport, and the complimentary pick-up was a good start to our break. We had requested a room on the upper floor and it was on the 5th (7)...

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.
