Only plus point is friendly staff....they are ready to help you with all available infrastructure but there is no infrastructure. Though the hotel is well located next to City Center but not at all maintained. It seems that it is in hand of unprofessional management. They don't even have GM, F&B Manager, House Keeping Manager or Chef. They serve all... More

Booked half a day at this hotel, because arrives very early in Muscat, and need to attend an event near the airport. Nice clean room. Nothing fancy. A bed for me and my colleagues to catch an extra few hours of sleep before starting our day at work!

Pros: great location Cons: smelly, badly maintained, rooms door locks don't work, my room walls damp, below average service. The breakfast served variety is decent but quality us poor. I would suggest taking a room without the breakfast package and save money.

Stayed here for business as our company booked us here due to proximity to the airport. First, the pick-up from the airport was uneventful. The driver was easily visible and he got us out of the terminal. However, as we exit the building, a couple of furious and disrespectful taxi drivers were getting mad at us for it looked like...

There is no service the rooms are very bad the place smells very wired. Breakfast is unbeatable. The concept of... More

Stayed there for a night and found the owner very pleasent. It was a very lovely and comfortable stay. Very relaxing beds. Needs improvement for its own marketing to cope up the competition. Easily can demand more value considering its strategic location. Hats off to them to make our journey relaxing.
