My friend and I stayed in this hotel for one night initially. I was quite pleased with the last minute booking as I only booked it only 2 days before. The hotel is a good transit hotel. Facilities were okay. The only problem I had was the air con which was a bit too noisy. Other than that, the location... More

Hotels in Muscat can be quite expensive, so I was happy to find this reasonably priced hotel for 3 nights, located between the airport and the main part of Muscat, what means that exploring the city is only possible by taxi or local transportation. My hotel room on 3rd floor on the main road side with view of the Al-Zawawi... More

Located in Al Khuwair is this a good value for money hotel. Akbar at the reservation desk makes it easier to book over the phone or if you are the reception already. In case you find it difficult to locate put Rotana Hotel as coordinates in the GPS. It is adjacent to Rotana Hotel Muscat. Breakfast is minimal but serves... More

Hotels in Oman are not cheap. Samara has some great deals, ~30 OMR incl. taxes per night is very good. The rooms are clean and have everything needed. They're a decent size also. You're just next door to a bakery and a supermarket, and close to a number of great restaurants and cafés (check out Begum's nearby for Indian!). You're... More
