“convenient and friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

Located very conveniently near the Lulu Shopping centre.
I visited with family and friends and stayed in a furnished 2-bedroom apartment
The apartment was clean
The fittings in the bathroom and kitchen were not in the best of condition - they were old and needed replacement in my opinion
Cooking gas was available but no cooking utensils / cutlery / crockery. It is advisable to carry ones own utensils / cutlery / crockery or disposable ones for use
No microwave oven
A refrigerator was available which was working
A 21" TV was available in the common room but the number of channels available were very limited and reception was poor
No internet facility available but internet cafes are available in the nearby local marketplace at inexpensive rates. Be sure not to access sensitive personal sites (e.g. for banking) because security at these places is doubtful
Options for eating out are limited but room service is OK
Shopping options - Lulu sypermarket is the main source but other options are close by.
We spent most our time sightseeing - a friend took us around to the different places like Job's tomb, Magnetic point, etc
If you intend to visit Salalah, it is advisable to contact a tour operator and arrange for local transport in advance rather than try local taxis. Car hire options at Salalah airport are easily available
