      The bed was good quality and firm.

      The hotel is looking 'tired'...it looks like nothing has been spent on it in the last 20 years. OK if you are looking for budget accommodation. Location was OK...but not anywhere you could walk for local attractions.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      The location is excellent within the CBD and thats the best part of it, The staff are courteous and flexible in their approach.

      it should be clean, especially the toilets were not sterilised and cleaned before check in

      I have stayed many a times before in this Hotel but what I liked best this time is the wired internet facility provided in the rooms which was not present earlier. The Internet is a bit slow but as it is said "Something is better tahn Nothing". Balance everything was much the same as before, I couldnt see any changes.

      The Car Park spaces are not sufficient, 3 out of 5 days I had to Park outside the hotel and also the Breakfast menu has not changed a bit in the last 4 Years that I have seen and experienced, needs some changes and betterment.

    • Family with children

      We spent 3 weeks in Oman with 2 small children out of season (early may ). This hotel was just for the first night before traveling around, so we did not expect anything especial. What a surprice: The staff was friendly, interested, and competent. The breakfast was good, Most of the equipment was in good shape and well maintained, the pool, too. A good price/ value for a overnight or short stay in Muscat - close to all the shoppings you need for a further excursion.

      This is my third stay in Ruwi in the past 6 months.. This time..i was just not comfortable. The Toilet was smelling something bad even before I used.. This was brought to the notice on day1..On day2 they fixed but it recurring after a day...i was too busy with my work and did not have much time to follow-up. Fyi, I stayed in 501 and if they could fix it...it would help guests in future...Also, this time I did not get complimentary breakfast since I booked online...something..i did not like and do not agree.

      All the staff were very helpful whatever question or advice we asked it was answered. Clean towels every day and if we required more after going to the swimming pool fresh ones were in our room immediately. The chef did a yummy pizza. Breakfast choice was very good and William one of the staff always had a lovely smile when greeting you. Bar facilities were very good and the staff were spot on. We read in the greeting pack that there was a private beech /sailing club these facilities were very good.Bar

      The computer facility was inadequate (not enough p.c.'s). Could do with two computers and present service was poor and slow. Enjoyed the group at night time, very friendly but too load for the size of room, you couldn't hold a conversation whilst they were on.

      It's a nice hotel, with reasonable facilities (gym, pool, restaurant) and pleasant staff. It's good value for money, and close to buisness and shopping districts.

      For us, with children, the location wasn't quite right - a bit too far from the main sights and beaches, although they're all reachable with a taxi

    • Single

      The value for this hotel is fantastic. Rooms are adequate if you aren't looking for luxury. Location is great and the price is right. Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Could not hear the nightclub on the 6th floor as other reviews led me to believe. This hotel is highly recommended for the price.

      No wifi in the room. They do have ethernet cables connected in the rooms for you to use. There is one computer in the lobby, but it is terribly slow.

      Leaving in the morning. Some staff were helpful, most were indifferent.

      The overall treatment of a female lone traveller.

      The staff at the hotel are extreemly friendly and willing to help you out with anything.
