I stayed in this hotel for a 45 days along with my colleagues. Staff are very warm & friendly especially Mr. Shanavas from reception. Housekeeping services can be compared with 5 star hotel services. However food service & quality needs an improvement. Overall I had a great experience and would love to visit again.

It's one of the older hotels in Muscat, and I guess primarily caters to business travellers. It's complete value for money. Nice big rooms and showers/baths. Clean sheets and towels. They have a decent gym and a decent swimming pool. And, for people travelling on business, you can't get a better located hotel. It's very close to Ruwi CBD, where... More

We only stayed here one night because we were getting the bus to Dubai at 6 a.m. It was quite cheap so we were really surprised at the excellent standard. Very friendly and helpful staff, large room. Taxi drivers waiting outside all the time - even at 5.30 a.m. Ruwi isn't the most picturesque spot in Muscat but it's just... More
