I was surprised to see so many bad reviews of this hotel, bearing in mind this is a budget option. Muscat is an expensive city to stay in, and for the equivalent of around GBP 40 per night including breakfast I thought this was a good value and fun place to stay. Possibly the rooms have been recently refurbished as...

This was the worst seafood I have ever been served grilled seafood turned out to be plate of prawns in sauce followed by a plate of tuna and swordfish accompanied by a plate of chips would definitely not recommend this restaurant wouldn't call it a restaurant for what we had it was expensive. Do not go there.

I am sorry to read about the negative reviews of the accommodation facilities offered by the Marina Hotel. In all the declamatory fuss, it should not be forgotten that the Marina offers a dining experience which is one of the expatriate locals' best kept secrets. The balcony off the (licensed) restaurant on the top floor (7th, I think), where tables...

Marina Hotel has the distinguishing and valuable feature of a roof-top bar + affordable beers - but I would not recommend sleeping here as most nights there is loud music in the basement and lots of coming and goings

Have stayed here several times usually only for one night. The rooms are generally not bad but I have had cock roaches in the room before. The rooms are very small expecially if you are sharing the room.

this has got to be the worst hotel in Oman. I have no idea why this place is still open. the rooms are small, and their "balcony overlooking the Marina" is big enough for one person only. The location is lovely - a short walk along the corniche brings you to the Mutrah Souk. However, the hotel has a nightclub...

This place is a nightmare!!! At first glance its ok, if a little small. It has a cleanish room with a tiny balcony, tv etc and a clean bathroom. AT night it turns to absolute crap! On the 2nd floor theres an arabic nightclub that plays loud, bassy music until 3am. We were on the top floor and we could...

Hotel Marina is one of the Muttrah's best hotels. Rooms are not very spacy but clean and all have air condition. Clean bathroom with shower, towels and hair-dryer. Comfortable beds and satellite TV. In the basement there is a bar serving beer and other alcohols. The price for double room in the January 2010 was 30 OMR.
