The starting point is that hotels in Oman are quite expensive so your money doesn't go very far here. For the price I paid, I would therefore have expected a lot more but this is just the way things seem to be in Oman. Hotel and Location The hotel is nice although a bit dated. Its location is pretty strange...

First of all this hotel is not at all associated with the Holiday Inn brands! The place is old and way out in the middle of a construction, junk yard, drill maintenance yards. Far from all towns but relatively close to the Airport. The hotel is old, BUT the staff is just GREAT! I cannot not say enough about the...

The hotel is totally out of main city of muscat. No shops around,except sand. No variety in food. Actually i was looking for Indian dishes, but i didnt find any in the menu. Internet is also very expensive to buy. Swimming pool is good. Overall,if you want to hangout nearby, then there is nothing.
