Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat
Ranked #15 of 61 Hotels in Muscat
Reviewed December 8, 2012

I was pretty impressed with this hotel. My standard room was large and the bed very comfortable. Free wi-fi in the room, ironing board, plenty of tea/coffee/complementary water etc. was handy. They extended my check out until 6 p.m. with no quibble. Food was good and not overly expensive and atmosphere was pretty convivial especially on nights when there was buffet service. Little coffee shop on the ground floor a good option for snacks if you've over-indulged on the buffet breakfast. Gym is well equipped with modern gear including equipment you don't always find, e.g. two Concept 2 rowing machines - important for some of us! Pool area is pleasant (especially if you can block out the traffic from the nearby flyover) with very comfortable loungers - wish I could have taken one home with me. Hotel is near a major traffic intersection so there can be a lot of road noise but rooms are well insulated so I was much less bothered than when staying at the Intercontinental.

I can see what people say about the service. Language may be an issue - my experience was that it helped to pitch up at Reception and do things face to face as difficult to communicate over the phone - then no problems. Don't expect staff to anticipate your every need and come running. Price was half that at the Intercontinental and I think good value for money. If you can get a corporate rate at the Grand Hyatt, that is probably a pretty great option though.

The hotel staff is really friendly and helpful. Quick and promt service. The food at the resturants is very good and a very nice pool side ambiance. The rooms are bit loud .. Very brightly coloured but comfortable . Only the cleanliness of the bathroom needs to be improved ... And some of the fixtures are very old and need to be changed.

This is a nice hotel. Good size rooms well decorated, well insulated. A good "olivos" cafe downstairs. Very beautiful pool and garden. Location is fine in the citybut not with its immediate environment. They built a highway just next to them. You are not disturbed by it just no interesting view. The problem is service. Lack of it. No one to answer the phone when you call. Twice things were ordered and twice they never came. Reception was very busines only. It is not up to the high standards we mostly got in other gulf's countries for 200$/night hotel.

Don't expect a dream from 1001 nights as some of the hotel pictures may make you believe. This is business hotel, conveniently located in a business district, far away from the ocean, with highways on all sides of the hotel. Rooms are fairly sound proof, still, as always, bring ear plugs.

That said thus is a good choice with all the amenities you would expect from a Radisson.

As a concierge gold member I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was well furnished, modern and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a very wide choice of everything you can think off. Ground floor bar is extremely dated and somehow doesn't feel like it belongs to this property. Fitness facilities and treatment rooms are very dated and in desperate need of refurbishment.
