Always the best service and food when staying here and the beach location and gym are wonderful. A jog on the beach was great.

The Intercon may not be the most modern of hotels in terms of decor but it's always our hotel of choice when we go to Muscat. The service is incredible, the staff are always super friendly and helpful, the food is top notch, great gym and pool and the location is fabulous. It's well worth a stay!

The pictures of this hotel are totally misleading. We asked for a twin room AWAY from the construction (surely they shouldn't be putting people in rooms within earshot, and view, of a massive construction project?). When I went to check in, I was given a twin room that I was told 'may' be affected by the construction and that I...

The hotel is well located near the new Opera House and cafes near the beach. Got upgraded to Club level which was an added treat. Tomato Italian restaurant is the perfect place to eat outdoors on a balmy winter's night. The room was comfortable and staff excellent. Hotel needs painting on the exterior.
