I stayed here in January for the Muscat Marathon with my family. My wife and daughter's room had an issue with the shower, but this was fixed in short order, and afterwards, they received a follow up call from the front desk. My room was okay until the middle of the night. The Air Conditioning started making loud noises, and I eventually had to shut it off so I could sleep.
The hotel is nice, but dated in the rooms, as mentioned in other reviews. The wifi is just okay, shower pressure is good, gym facilities are nice, outside grounds and facilities are very nice, but parking areas seem insufficient. I didn't try the restaurant, but there is a small shopping mall less than 5 minutes walk where my family and I had dinner.
All in all, not a bad place to stay. Staff was friendly, but a little pricey. We would probably stay there again if we received a discounted rate, as we did for the race. The rooms are priced like a 5 star hotel, but some work needs to be done to get back to the 5 star status.
