Stopover in Muscat

4 out of 5
by from Australia
Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: Large, clean, comfortable hotel in a good location. Really good breakfast of cereal, toast, hot selection, fruit, fruit juice etc
Cons: Tourist information, help and advice. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Location: Great location, less than 15 minutes walk to the souk, corniche, restaurants, bakery, supermarket, banks
We had a large, clean, comfortable room on the fourth floor. The only minor complaint was intermittent noise coming from the roof, maybe water heater or air conditioning. We had AC, a refrigerator and flat scree TV which all worked, and a bathroom which didn't leak - much appreciated after just spending 3 months overlanding in West Africa! Unfortunately Hotel staff were unwilling, or unable, to give us tourist advice - for example we were quoted 100R, then 70R to have a car organized for a day trip to Nizwa. (Transport only, not a tour) Fortunately we met other independent travellers who told us to take a share taxi, which we did, for a total cost of 18R (a saving of about AU$150). Hotel staff did not tell us about this option, nor give us correct advice re where to find the share taxi. Given an official tourist information office does not exist in Muscat, it is important to have impartial information at the hotel level. Aside from this we had a very pleasant stay and we would recommend the hotel to other travellers.

Pros: The friendly staff and the care in which we were looked after - from check in to check out nothing was too much trouble.
Cons: The lift is pretty noisy in the main building and the new section has some noisy doors - but other than that it's great value for money.
Location: The hotel is located only 15mins walk from the Mutrah Souk and the Corniche where there is lots to see and plenty of good food to eat.
The Mutrah Hotel is one of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in! The staff are exceptional and could not do enough to ensure we had a great stay. Bernard is the ring master - organising amazing tours and making sure we had everything we needed. Jassim is the hotel guide and we spent two amazing days with him travelling into the interior (Nizwah, it's souk, fort and surrounds) and down the coast to Sur (including a trip to a dhow factory, walking through Wadi Tiwi, Wadi Al Shab and the Sinkhole and fabulous swimming at Fins Beach). Jassim was an excellent guide, with exceptional local knowledge of every place we visited. Bernard provided us with delicious picnic lunches both days and Jassim would always find a quiet shady spot to set up camp to eat. The hotel restaurant served good food, with the Indian menu in particular being exceptional, and the staff were lovely.

Pros: Welcome and location
Cons: Decor could be improved. Maybe a couple of rugs in the room.
Location: 15 mins walk to Mutrah Souq, or half a riyal taxi ride. Mutrah Souq is a MUST.
In general good. Friendly welcome and room was very spacious. Decor was a bit dated but comfortable bed and in general I would recommend for a budget price hotel for a night or two if you want to be close to the souq area.

Pros: Cleanliness and delightful staff
Cons: Upgrade decor in rooms so they are not so dark looking. Lots of dark brown and walls seemed old looking. Brighter linens, bed spreads or duvet covers.
Location: Souks, corniche, restaurants, fish market, museums.
Excellent, pleasant, helpful staff. About 30 minute walk to corniche and souk area. Room is a little dated but it's very clean. Would stay here again when in this area. I noticed the fourth floor was getting renovated with upgraded flooring which looks nice.

Great hotel

5 out of 5
by from Vancouver, Canada
Posted Sep 30, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Location: There are a number of inexpensive coffee shops, which serve whole meals, as well as a supermarket nearby.
Great buffet breakfast. Lots to choose from.There is something for any taste. Large room. Helpful staff. Bernard is the best! He cares a lot about the welfare of the customers. Even when we learned that Expedia hadn't included a free shuttle to the airport for us, Bernard got it for us anyway. He's a very efficient manager. The hotel is not as close to the souq, or the corniche as advertised. For good walkers it is within walking distance, though the heat can be a problem. On the whole, however, the hotel is very well worth the money spent. We would recommend it 100%.
