Disappointment ...
This is my second trip to this hotel as a part of a larger business visit. I have to say that I was quite disappointed a the hotel and especially their customer service + room services. They have no clue of what it means to be 'Clean' and 'COVID-safe'. We encountered several issues ranging from unnecessary charges to borderline denial of gold status of IHG. I think this hotel needs a serious revamp with major staff change and trainings. I am truly disappointed!

Fairly nice
The hotel is fairly good. Polite reception personnel, but very rude personnel in the restaurant/breakfast place. Do not recommend to stay in this hotel if it’s a business trip. It cost 50 omr just to book an meeting room (just the room without any other services). Also make sure to go trough the bill before paying, the restaurant personnel added dinners that we never had. The Omani personnel in the hotel were very friendly and helpful.
