During my visit of Muscat i felt myself like at home in Ruwi Hotel. The Rooms are are nice and clean, and each one is friendly...
All are doing a real great Job to make my live more easy.
The staffs are the main asset of the Hote.
To find a place for your car is easy, at Ruwi Hotel you can find a lot of Space in Front of the Hotel.

Espacially the Front Office staff Mr. VIPIN and Mr. RAFI from Housekeeping and Mr. SANJAY from F&B these guys are not just doing there Jobs, they are dedicating there work for the HOTEL.

All the best RUWI

I stayed in Ruwi hotel for around 10 days. It was a very comfortable stay. Though the hotel is not centrally located, it is well connected to all the major destinations in Muscat.

The staff were very friendly, especially Mr. Rajesh, every ready to help us. There are enough dining option within the Hotel. There are taxi stands close to the hotel.

I strongly recommend Muscat visitors to try this hotel.
