I stayed at Ruwi for 3 nights. The hotel is located a taxi/drive away from main attractions, however it is convenient to get on freeways to go out of town if you have a car. I also found it handy to explore Muscat, Muttrah and Al-Qurum beach, as the hotel is smack half way between these towns.
Reception stuff have been helpful and even found me a car to rent. the rental company brought the car to the hotel for me.
