« Special thanks to kind and smart Mr. Shanavas at Reception »

Good average hotel in Ruwi ... one still does not know where the centre of the town is in Mascate ... Big and clean rooms, not expensive for a western average budget. By far, Mr. Shanavas was the most helpful person at the reception desk. Also, the philippinian and another local lady at breakfast.

A comfortable hotel in the Ruhi district of Muscat, around 20-30 minutes drive from the centre. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, clean bathrooms. The staff are especially courteous, and made us feel very welcome. We had an early morning departure, before breakfast, however they went out of their way to ensure we had something, even though cooked breakfast didn’t start for another hour. I would definitely recommend, if you want a reasonably priced hotel, and don’t mind a short drive to the centre. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants close to the hotel too.

« Excellent Hotel - deserves more than 3 stars »

Arrived to find Agoda had cancelled our reservation without informing us (saying they had requested copy of passport and credit card as part of anti-fraud measures, but as I never received such requests, of course I could not reply, but they simply cancelled my booking without attmepting to reach me via phone or sms first). The hotel manager Mr Shanavas was very kind and reassuring and immediately provided us with excellent rooms, spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff did everything possible to make us feel welcome. The breakfast buffet is amazing, with not a wide range of western style foods but different, delicious and interesting local foods, which are also very healthy and varying the range offered on a daily basis, including excellent service and good recommendations of which new foods to try. The central location is close to the taxi stop and shared taxi (minibus) stop where one can easly and cheaply take taxis to the local fish market/old Muscat castle and souq as well as other locations.

« Excellent 3* Hotel »

This centrally-situated and spotlessly-clean hotel is great value for money. It is excellently run with friendly caring staff. There is fast free WiFi everywhere. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with great air conditioning and constant hot water. The breakfast buffet is varied and plentiful with omelettes made to order, fresh fruit and lots of hot dishes. Outside on the terrace there is comfortable seating and a small pool to cool down in. Staff are always around and willing to help. I’ve stayed here using it as a travel base many times and will return.
