I just travelled from the Philippines early in the morning. The trip was very long which made me really exhausted. So I said to myself, I am definitely wishing to have some good rest and good place to stay that time.

While leaving the Muscat International Airport, I found Muscat City interesting and peaceful. I was in awe to see the moon setting while at the same time the sun is rising such a beautiful scenery. Then the staff of the hotel who fetched me, pointed me some buildings. I did not thought that there will be lots of Opera houses and art galleries which I hope I can visit one of these days. The n the houses and the buildings of some establishments for me seemed very organized. Plus no traffic.


Then finally we arrived at the Ruwi Hotel which instantly I was entertained and gave all my needs. Honestly, my first impression with the hotel is nice, simple and, quiet.
I find the hotel very relaxing because the room is nice plus the staff are all very accommodating.

I recommend that this should be one of the options of the tourists visiting the city of Muscat.

Face it: Muscat is pricey and most hotels are of poor value. If you want to see Muscat but need to save some coin, stay here. It's possible to find helpful staff. The wireless didn't work well in my room . . . but honestly, this is a place relatively simple to drop off your bags and then explore Muscat. Breakfast was what you'd expect for a 2 star or so hotel. Fabulous? No. Decent? Yes. On a budget? Stay here.

My experience in Ruwi Hotel was nice and comfortable. Breakfast was good and staff were very friendly. They have Airport pick up and drop off too, free of charge. I always stay in this hotel whenever I visit Muscat for business. Definitely recommended not only for Business but also for family. I also gained some friends with Ms Nita and Ms Nina as they always handle my request very politely! Keep it up!
