We booked this hotel for the first time because we will attend an event that is also held in this hotel. After staying for 2 nights initially, we ended up booking for another night the succeeding weekend. Foremost reasons? (1) Excellent value for money, and (2) Very good location.
This property is situated in Al-Khuwair, near the CBD. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. It's about 5 minutes drive to Muscat Grand Mall and Oman Avenues Mall for shopping. And it is also a few minutes drive to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. If you're in Muscat either for leisure or business, this hotel as the ideal location.
The hotel itself is a little old. However, the rooms are clean and very spacious compared to similar hotels. We booked a double room with an extra bed and they upgraded us to a one-bedroom suite without even adding the charge for extra bed. View from the room is typical city view. The area where we got our room was quiet, and we loved it.
Amenities in the toilet and bath are basic. The breakfast spread, although not excellent in terms of spread, can be considered quite good for the room cost. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
This hotel is really highly recommended for your short stays in Muscat.
