Reviewed December 31, 2012

My husband and i stayed at this hotel in November 2012 and we had an excellent time, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the hotel was spotless at all times and everything worked.
The only thing that may be a problem for some is that it doesnt have a liquor licence but then you are in an unspoiled city in the middle east.
I would definatley recomend this hotel to anyone at all and as there is a fridge in the room just pick some alcohol up at the airport.

Room Tip: i think that all the rooms are excellent.

Nice hotel, half way ffrom airport to old muscat, good for busines, but not so for vacations as it is quite far from tourist spots and beach. The rooms are quite ok, looks very clean,
Breakfast is very basic, juice is sweetened, bread is just toast, eggs are greasy, coffee is ugly, espresso is" sorry extra cost"
So after the experience with breakfast we decided not to eat there, but just a few meters from there opposite the raddison blue hotel there are several nice small restaurants for outside eating.

I thoroughly recommend the Platinum. It is relatively new, clean, and the decoration and finishing is to a high standard. My room was large, with a decent sized bathroom. I found the aircon to be efficient and not too noisy.

The staff, mainly Indian are without exception friendly and helpful.

Main restaurant is off the lobby, with a comprehensive a la carte menu, and additionally a good value buffet if there is a training course running. Breakfast is of course buffet style with a great choice of fruit, cereals, pastries and freshly made omelettes.

There are some useful shops within walking distance, a supermarket across the road and a very good value laundry right next door.

Wi-fi works well - TV is I'm afraid the usual suspects - BBC World and CNN in English!

Muscat is an expensive place to stay but the Platinum offers good value and excellent all round service.

I stayed there for 2 nights on my business trip and enjoyed the stay thoroughly.

Breakfast was ok with not much variety and food was very costly. I pizza was about OR7!! too expensive. Staff was good and pleasant.

You have food options around so, need not worry.

They have a airport pick up whcih you should take to avoiding late night bargaining with errant taxi walas

Room Tip: choose any room all are good
