The hotel is located right next to the business district of Oman, the major banks and business houses have their offices not far from the hotel and Ruwi is one of the leading shopping areas of the city too. Visiting the leading landmarks in the city is easy from here. The breakfast buffet is very good.

Muscat is a sprawling metropolis, criss-crossed by wide boulevards, expressways, and major roundabouts, with no discernible centre. The closest Muscat gets to having a "downtown" is Ruwi which is where the commercial centre of the South Asian merchant community is based. Ruwi is also conveniently situated for excursions into Muttrah (where the accommodation options are more limited) and Old Muscat.... More

The hotel has got all the services you need to enjoy your stay: very spacious room (a bit chilly but the blankets are OK), bathroom amenities, a small nice pool where you can also have lunch or dinner, business center and a diversified breakfast offer. The bathroom is maybe a bit shabby and worn out compared to the room and... More

Firstly, I would like to say the staff were fantastic and if the rating were purely on their service I would give them 5 stars! Rooms were large with free wifi and TVs that offered a couple of good Western channels showing round the clock movies. One of the reasons I have rated this hotel "average" was because both the...

This hotel is OK but not somewhere to dwell if you are on vacation. Rooms are a bit dark (small window) and the pool area not very attractive. Breakfast and restaurant not bad. Free wifi. For Oman not bad value.

Stayed here prior to returning to the Omani desert to work. A busy hotel with good food and service. the staff were all friendly and helpful as most Middle East Hotels are. Always enjoyed the Friday breakfasts with lots of choices on offer. Because my company paid the hotel no issues with the costs but if I did I would... More

Hotel Ruwi is a nice hotel for mid-term to long-term stay. I stayed here for 25 days and the overall service was good. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is peaceful - except when groups check in. The staff are friendly - though I would have appreciated a little more courtesy in their way of answering calls from guest... More

Faded hotel, but clean and neat room. Good buffet breakfast, OK pool and good place for a night or 2. Only issue was a dreadful smell in the elevators and the common areas on the 7th floor. It really was revolting.
