“Bit dated but a decent budget choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

As the taxi service in Oman is expensive after hours and I wanted a drink I opted to stay where I wouldn't need taxi home at night. Rooms are carpeted and a little stale, AC is noisy and bit smelly but wasn't required, bed comfortable and clean, slight issue with wifi and communication/feedback after I raised issue but once it worked it worked well. Restaurant was very good food and adjoining bar is loud and has pool tables so I was happy. If you don't want alcohol you can find similar standard but cheaper but overall I was happy to part with my money on checkout.

Room service menu would help a little. Staff polite and helpful but as I said, feedback on issues would be preferred.

Nothing special about.
Maybe only the fact that you can get a legal drink in Oman.
Food is eatable, Cleanliness acceptable, Wi-Fi slow but usable, A/C good (kind of noisy).
Front Desk Staff – Locals; Food & Beverage Staff – Pakistani, Indians, Pilipino; House Keeping – Nepali (Males Mostly).
Guests – Mainly on Business – Technicians, Services, Engineers, leaving the site in the morning and returning after 5 p.m.
During the day, place looks kind of “deserted”.
Regarding the prices… No Comment!!!

It is ok for one night stay but not more. Small rooms, lighting in the room is very dim, mosquitos, and very slow service. Noisy night clubs, and reception staff need to learn how to smile. Breakfast mostly indian cuisine. Room service menu poor.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room on the pool

The good thing I experienced in this hotel is its only a single storied building as far as the guest rooms are concerned and the structure in circular with a small round pool in the middle - this makes a cool stay and I can quickly go in & out of the room for my work. The room was spacious enough for a single traveler and quite clean as well. Wi-Fi strength was good. Having a pool in front of the room was quite soothing and sitting beside it in the evening was quite relaxing as well. There is fitness centre in the hotel.
The restaurant food was good. There are 3 bars with three different themes - pool bar, filipino bar and hindi songs bar. The location is on the highway between Sohar main city and the Sohar industrial area and it serves as a good staying location for people have work in the industrial area.There is a Safeer Hypermarket very close by.

The hotel has everything a traveller would need. Spacey rooms (with comfortable beds) located in a ring around a swimming pool, reliable complimentary internet connection in rooms and a good choice of food for breakfast. Highly commendable!

The only difficulty is that due to the extensive construction works on the Muscat - Dubai highway, the hotel is hard to locate driving from the Muscat side (when you drive from the other direction it becomes self explanatory).

I'm in the hotel now and having a great time. The staff smiles all the time. The poolside room is clean and comfortable. I'm still here and wishing I had more nights here. The pool area is very nice and I'm looking forward to the Filipino Bar tonight. Internet is fast enough and the TV channels are good. The Sri Lakan Manager...I've got to get her name...friendly and professional.

Room Tip: Poolside is great.
