“Samara Hotel Muscat”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a simple, clean but good value hotel. Approx $ 45 per room night. Privately run place, approx 15 mins cab ride from the airport. Restaurant is not very good but there are lots of local eateries in walking distance. Suitable for business visits only: Not suitable for leisure travel or with families. Very nice staff and management.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room- they are a bit bigger

Enjoyed a very comfortable 2 night stay. Excellent and efficient welcome and check-in, just what was needed after a late arrival. Room was simply comfortable and everything you needed without the frills. Good working spaces in the room, excellent WiFi connection, and decent shower in the morning. You do get some noise from the corridor, and rooms above when furniture is being moved around. But not a major when you hit the comfortable bed for sleep. Breakfast was simple, but covers the basics and enough to fuel up for the day. All in all a good value, comfortable, clean, well run and well located hotel.

I booked at last minute and got an upgrade to a larger room. Indian welcome style at the reception but a quick and swift night check-in. Good value for money, clean room, clean bathroom, free Internet access, no noise issues. Excellent solution if you look for a room after a late flight arrival as it is situated between Seeb Airport and Muscat/Mutrah/Ruwi. Nice restaurants in Al-Khuwair district but you you do need to move farther to the neighborhood of the Radisson Blu hotel which is only a 5 minutes distance in taxi/car. There is a nice large Middle Eastern bakery down the street along the main Road (30 seconds walking distance !).

Everything was fine..location..close to airport...although not many restaurants around. Rooms clean, comfortable bed, quiet area...slept well. But the one thing that spoiled all the good was smoke from another room that filtered through the ventilation system and forced us to close the bathroom door. They should be more vigilant about the smoking policy.Remember breakfast not incl. in price.

It's a good hotel for stay for 1 night when you arrive late from the airport. The surrounding is boring, hotel also, but very clean, cheap and with friendly staff. The location is in the middle between the old center and the airport. Generally Muscat is a city to stay for max 2 days,

Very good location, reasonable price, delicious breakfast, nice staff.


We had a lovely stay at Samara Hotel for a week. We had a warm welcome when we arrived and our luggage was carried up the rooms. The rooms were very clean and we had nothing to complain. The breakfast was really nice.
the location is great at the central of the city, the hotel helped us to rent a car.
We will definitively come back to Muscat and stay at Samara hotel again.

The stay at the Samara Hotel was absolutely dreadful. The room had flourescent lighting, bugs, and the check out staff members were unpleasant. Advoid this place.

The wifi is turned off daily at midnight and does not resume until 9 AM.

Room Tip: No noise but the room was horrible.
