“Great Omani experience”
Reviewed 9 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had five nights at Garden Roomz Oman at the start of our Omani adventure. Really enjoyed the experience, far better in my view than any hotel. Great to stay with a local family; Salma and her family were all approachable, open and welcoming; it was excellent to be able to discuss local and cultural matters over a delightful breakfast each day. Very comfortable apartments in a beautiful garden (exactly as represented on the site), relaxed and easy access without having to disturb anyone as we came and went. Easy cab ride from the airport using the instructions given upon booking, and walking distance to the Grand Mosque. Cabs are plentiful in Muscat for trips to other parts of the city.

“Different but lovely”

Stayed for 3 nights and agree with all recent reviews.. Salma was lovely as were the rest of her family. You could feel the love. It's easy going there, made a change from a hotel. It's a bit difficult to find though! You need a car to stay here in my opinion. We loved Oman and the people. Scenery is stunning. Air on in rooms was great, wifi only in main house but never a problem to use it. Thank you Salma for the lovely wrap x

A friend and I travelled to Muscat with no other plans but this lovely B&B booked. It is an excellent base to explore Muscat and the surroundings.
The accommodation itself is just fantastic; Salma is lovely, welcoming, very kind and a lovely soul. She surprises you with excellent typical breakfast and make you feel at home.
I highly recommend it if you want to taste the real Oman far from the usual hotels.

“Absolutely perfect :)”

Even though we arrived at 2:30 am at Garden Roomz the owner, Salma, gave us a warm welcome. In the morning we enjoyed a variety of freshly cooked Omani and Sansibarian breakfast - more than you will ever be able to eat! Every single one was delicious and definitely worth a try! Salma then normally would sit down and give us a lot of advice and insider tips what to do and what to see in the area. By the way we also learned a lot about Omani life and history because Salma has already lived in this country back in the 70s when both the people and the infrastructure were very poor! Service is also made by some friendly girls and a Bangladeshi boy called Mohammed who has been also incredibly friendly and helpful during our whole stay!
At this place you'll get a first hand experience what "Omani hospitality" really means! We were staying for a whole week in one of the bungalows in the very green and quiet garden and enjoyed every single day! "We came as strangers and left as friends!" It may sound quiet cheesy but thats the way we feel about Salma and this neat place called "Garden Roomz"!
