Rooms are bit dated (the carpet was dirty) but otherwise good size, comfortable bed, nice bathroom. The food was excellent, large selection at the breakfast buffet and very tasty dinners, large portions, almost too much to eat. Friendly staff,free internet with cable provided and a convenient location. however, friends of mine in the same hotel had a clogged drain in the shower which took 2 days to repair.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back are quieter.

Located conveniently in Ruwi close to main commerical CBD area. The hotel has a flagship appearance as compared with others in the area, and quite a variety of services and amenities. Although slightly older in style, they seem to have undertaken renovations to update the rooms. I stayed in an entry level delxue room which was very spacious as compared with usual entry level rooms. There was additional dining and seating area as well as a good sized bathroom. Room was very comfortable to sleep in with a good size bed, however there are some road works nearby that unfortunately start very early in the morning, suggest room away from that side. Shower was good but is slightly older style so set the taps to correct temperature before jumping in. Good speed internet connection, although it was a wired connection. There is WiFi in public areas, and from what I was informed this is planned to be spread to guest rooms. Breakfast restaurant is of good quality and selection. I did also see a sheesha cafe, but did not get the chance to try. Overall it is a classic style hotel, with good service and amenities. Would recommend to business travels in to the Ruwi area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from roadworks side if you are not plannig to get up early in the morning.

Hotel has a very nice location. Rooms are comfortable. Service is Good. Food from a vegetarian's point of view is average, desserts are good. Fortunately the location of the hotel is terrific since Sarvanna Bhawan- a Indian south Indian vegetarian restaurant is just opposite it. So it does make up for the food. Desserts are very good. Ruwi's market is at a walking distance and all the commercial shops are there in it. Also you can take a shared cab for around 100 baiza to the Srikrishna temple which is not far. Lulu market is not too far either and offers a good place for shoppers to hang around. There was renovation going on at my time of stay. I hope its over by now. Overall its a nice business hotel.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have equally good view.

I was in Muscat on business and the Haffa House Hotel was booked by a third party for me. After reading all the reviews I was very apprehensive about being there for 5 days. However, I found the staff very friendly and helpful, the food good and interesting, the location fine, the bedrooms were on the small side but clean and comfortable. It is a "dry" hotel but on landing at Muscat airport, you can buy duty free alcohol once you have come through passport control.
There is a new beaty salon and that is reasonable and the pedicures very good. The swimmjing pool was open and looked OK although I did not use it. The gym had good modern equipment. I must confess that it looks like the hotel has had a wake up call as there have been lots of renovation work done and more in the pipeline.

Room Tip: Chose a room at the back of the hotel because of the traffic at the front - lorries are going past all night and try and get a room away from the atrium as the music tends to be rather loud.

Stayed at the Haffa House Hotel twice when I was travelling around Oman. The staff are great however the hotel is having a lot of improvements done (noise going onto 2100hrs). The pool was open however a notice did say that it was closing for maintenance (I believe the gym was staying open).
