Stayed at this hotel in March, 2016 with a bunch of people from school. Clean rooms, small though. Food could be better. Located a little out of place in Ghala. Nice swimming pool. Hotel shuttle service was terrible. They were always at least an hour late. Would not stay again, had too many problems.

First I want to point out that the employees are doing a good job and the service level is high. Sadly the hotel is in desperate need of a rennovation. It's condition is terrible. The hotel is empty and overpriced. Food is ok but not the best. Only cold water in the shower (we tried in two rooms). Do not... More

We stayed one night in this hotel, after our trip to the Nizwa/Sur area and before our flight to Khasab. The strange location in an industrial district is already mentioned by others, and to be honest I didn't have a problem with that. After all we only stayed here for one night. It is also only half an hour by... More

If you are a single man on a business trip, this is fine. It has everything you need. A clean, quite, comfortable room and reasonable Wi-Fi. For a single man I would give this 4/5 For a couple, a single lady, or a family, it is probably a little too basic. Location is not great (described as "Behind the Toyota... More

Room was clean and tidy. Minibar was empty wen I wanted to grab some soft beverages.Breakfast selection and service was very moderate could have been more variety and staff should be trained to be in hospitality field.

We stayed here a decade ago and if I'm not mistaken, we went in for the Holiday Inn brand, the names as we can see has changed, but the description provided by other readers point to the fact that not much has changed around the vicinity, the location is very industrial, which means that if you are here on leisure,...

The setting: This hotel belongs to a local chain and is situated just a few minutes from the airport and about 15 minutes from the corniche. If you need to overnight before or after your flight to/from Muscat, this affordable place is ideal. The hotel is non-descript and is in an industrial area. However, it’s clean, safe and cheap.

Quiet clean but spartan rooms. We stayed after arriving from late night flight and did not notice the usual location within an industrialized area of Muscat. Good enough for the one night. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We spent a night here en route to London from Zanzibar. It is called the Al Madinah Holiday hotel but you really wouldn't want to spend a holiday here because of its industrial location. I picked it because a) we were only there for one night and b) because of the price and c) it's not too far from the... More
