Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat
Ranked #13 of 60 Hotels in Muscat
Reviewed April 17, 2012

We spent three nights at Radison Blu Muscat in October 2011 at the start of a vacation trip through Oman. Due to the location and layout of the hotel it is more suited for business than leisure. That said, it still served our purpose.

Rooms were clean, furniture was modern and felt very new. What I really liked about the hotel was the rooftop bar, which offered plenty of comfortable seating and which always had a light breeze of air going on. What I did not like too much was the layout of the breakfast area, which is located in the middle of the hotel building in an open plan, next to the reception and therefore felt more like an airport- (though without windows) rather than a hotel setting.

Despite that caveat, I still recommend the hotel.

The hotel is clean and functional. However it next to several main roads and there are few tourist attractions in the area. We have resorted to a hire car to avoid high taxi fares.

Hotel service is below average. Bring your own plastic glasses being as a poolside drink can take a long time to arrive, take your own

Together with the family, we spent 5 days in Muiscat, Oman at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The hotel is nice, service is excellent and we get a very good value for what we have paid. I would like especially to mention the very good service we always got at the reception : they helped us with Tour, taxi and lots of information about the city and the country.

With nice rooms, a gym, outdoor pool, good concierge service and excellent food, this is a reasonably priced base for business or for exploring Muscat. Beautiful town - this is not one of the cool boutique hotels but good service and amenities.

A very nice property including pool area and rooms. An excellent and worthwhile steak house inside, with reasonable "all inclusive" pricing for startes, main and desert (water or wine/beer "all you can drink" option extra). Many times I found it hard to find someone to help with luggage or getting a cart or to make a restaurant reservation - or directions. And front desk staff gave confusing and conflcting information. The morning buffet is pretty good but not excellent; no bacon or pork products (which could be separate like in other hotels) for their "international" breakfast. The "beef sausages" were just hot dog weiners. But other good choices. Had to beg for eggs cooked to order. Generally, a good stay with minor problems.

I recently stayed in this hotel on business and whilst it is clean and pleasant with a beautiful pool area and nicely appointed rooms. The corridors are dark and dingy (trying to be trendy, but merely seeming grubby), service is poor and english is not well spoken by reception and telephone operator staff.
Food was very average and overpriced.
I didn't hate this hotel but i didn't love it either. If you got a great deal and you needed a bed for a business trip, it would be fine, sadly no better than fine.
