Ibis Muscat
Ranked #13 of 61 Hotels in Muscat
Reviewed March 25, 2012

This is a clean, practical, no-frills hotel. The rooms are a bit small especially the bathroom but functional, yet the hotel is very modern and clean. We stayed for 3-nights for the price of two which made it a hard to beat deal. There is a mcdonalds, 24-hour convenience store/petrol station, a pizza express, a thai, an omani and 3 south indian restaurants along the highway service road within a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. There is a bowling alley right in front of the hotel and a night club in the hotel nextdoor. The area is very quiet, there isn't any construction in the adjoining land. I wish they had coffee makers in the room. I have seen the posts by the hotel manager here saying that the rooms will have coffee makers in March 2012 but as of 24th March the rooms don't have them. The internet password was provide at check-in along with the room card. The internet was reasonably fast. Overall, this hotel is good value for money.

I had earlier stayed at Ibis in Kuwait but never in Muscat, Oman. I liked it. The rooms were with as usual to-the-point approach. Clean, carpeted and functional though small bathroom.

Good enough breakfast spread and comfortable for short business travel trips.

A modern design, geared towards business travellers during the week. Excellent breakfast selection. Rooms are a bit noisy when at night as road workers continue around the clock. Higher rooms will be more quiet.

This hotel is situated about 10 kilometres outside of Muscat. I was here for two nights. On check in i was given my room card and als the password for the internet which made a pleasant change. I found the rooms very clean and well proportioned for a businessman on a short trip. The only room suggestion is tea and coffee making facilities would make such a difference. Breakfast is ok with a small selection but finctional.
One not. Although the web site claims there is a bar there isn't however a two minute walk to Holiday Muscat has a small pub and a sports bar with an enclosed smoking area.

Have just stayed in the ibis, re the comments on the smoking rooms we are all non smoking and therefore had a non smoking room and it was perfect no smell at all , very clean. The Hotel is in a good location and the staff were very helpful. In fact everything you want from a small hotel in a large city ! Breakfast was good and plentiful. Would certainly choose this hotel in Muscat again !

Too bad that the non-smoking rooms were stinking of cold and old cigarette smoke! A real and absolut no go! Even on the whole floor it was smelling badly of smoke! Absolutely no way for non-smokers! Will not book the hotel anymore, unless I have to from the company.
