Ibis Muscat
Ranked #16 of 60 Hotels in Muscat
Reviewed October 6, 2013

This hotel is very Ibis. I do like the lighted sign that gives the price outside the hotel. Overall a fairly convenient hotel and justifiably popular with business clients. I've been here before and will come again. The rooms seemed comfortable enough and the television worked okay.
I did have some trouble with the free internet access. It didn't seem to connect sometimes so i couldn't use it all the time.
The breakfast was good. There was plenty of choice to get a good breakfast. There were some recipes written up on blackboards as a part of the decor near the open kitchen area in the restaurant. I was a bit amused to see a recipe for Bolognaise sauce without minced beef? I wasn't in for dinner, but had i chosen that dish i'd want minced beef in the sauce. Anyway, the decor was novel, at least.

Typical Ibis: you get what you pay for! Everything was average except the gym which was, surprisingly, better than I expected. I rated the location "very good" as it was very close to my business meeting location. The rooms, the breakfast, the room service menu are all just basic. The check in did take more than what it should as there was one person only doing everything at the same time. Overall: a good value for money, especially if you are there for a short stay.

Value for money. Internet access wasn't hi Speed!, I ordered room service 3 times and got 3 meals which were different to what I had ordered.... Even when I had ordered the food myself from the restaurant. Overall good value for money and attentive staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th floor... It has it's own lift and is quiet.

Ideally located in a good location. Peaceful environment . Good Food in the open restaurant.
This is surely a value for money deal. You can also enjoy Complimentary High Speed Internet and Shuttle services to the Muscat Grand Mall.

You can also find Mac D and several Indian, Turkish restaurants nearby.
