Excellent hotel, friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Very clean and well-kept public areas. Rooms well-appointed and the suites excellent value. We have stayed a couple of times in past two months and have been treated well. A note of interest is the showers! Make sure you put a couple of shower mats outside as the builders did not quite allow... More

I stayed for three nights. My first room was noisy because of the next room's toilet, i was too tired to change it that night. I got another room that is higher in the second night which turned out to be more quiet. Anyway The room is generally spacious and clean, bed is soft. Breakfast is good as well. The... More

Hello everyone, Platinum Hotel is small, but cute hotel, with nice staff and great pool on the top floor whit great view on Muscat. Food is great, but for me, beach is little bit far away, so you will need to walk for 25minutes, or if you want some better beaches, you will need to pay taxi for about 3-4... More

Not carpetted/even small rug around the bed, so we used towels. No conditioner. Pool in the rooftop needs a renovation. No sound proof between the walls. We woke up in... More

Stayed here 3 weeks in December, Staff was excellent up to and including the manager. The food was delicious and well priced. Beautiful pool and spa. I would stay here again as the hotel is so nice and almost brand new.

Good location, nice service, clean rooms. There was a trouble with internet connection and the keys. They had to magnetize them every day (sometimes even few times per day). I spent there almost a month, so it was very annoying after few days.
