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

This hotel is located between the airport and the city of Muscat, not exactly close to anything worth mentioning. There are, however, a decent selection of restaurants to choose from nearby, if you need that late night snack/dinner. If you are not planning to rent a car, be advised that you will be depending on taxis to go to/from the... More

Stayed here for 1 night Jan 2015. Room was small, but clean. Hot water, firm bed, clean sheets, enough space for 1-2. OK location, average restaurants nearby but the Zawari Mosque is worth a quick look. Breakfast was adequate, waiter was really friendly and talkative, as the room was empty. Shame the other staff were generally rude and unfriendly, and... More

Arrived very early in the morning (well before usual check-in time) and was still given a room after a short wait. Staff were very helpful in detail nearby attractions and restaurants. The hotel itself is only 10-15mins away from the hotel (in traffic) and is situated very close to Muscat Grand Mall which also has a supermarket. I did not... More

was pleasantly surprised by the Samara. We arrived at 5 am, exhausted from an overnight flight, and the concierge was kind enough to arrange a room for us by 6:30, when someone checked out (regular check-in is about noon). The room was simple but very clean, with air-conditioning and a hot shower. Had a good night's sleep in a comfy... More
