This hotel is very convenient for the airport as is seen by the number of aircrew who stop here from various airlines and the hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from the airport. This service can be a pain though if the driver decides to wait for another flight to come in and you can be left waiting with luggage in the midst of arrivals.
The hotel itself is clean and tidy, it is showing its age and the stairwells in particular look more like service areas. The allocated room was clean and tidy, though you may need to ask specifically for non smoking rooms. Room was equipped with flatscreen TV, minibar, desk and small sofa.
Service in the hotel can be slow, extremely slow and this is at any time of the day, though evenings are particularly bad. The food is good and plentiful from the A La Carte though not overly extensive. Beef and chicken burgers are big and the pizzas also good value.
None of the staff at reception, restaurant or bars seem to be overly concerned with the speed of their service.
A trip into central Muscat for shopping or meetings will set you back around 5 Rials in a taxi, be sure to agree a rate in advane, they don't work on meters and will try to overcharge any tourists or business people if they think they will get away with it!
All in all an acceptable stay but not somewhere i'd recommend for the tourist or someone seeking a little more luxury.
