Al Falaj Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Neutrally painted, but poorly decorated hotel. Christmas decorations look like a 2nd grade project. Rooms have insufficient electrical outlets. Location seems a bit far from everything and cabs are expensive here. Very good, but not great breakfast buffet possibly available for $10 pp with voucher bought at front desk. 4 restaurants. Mostly good service.
We stayed at Al Falaj Hotel over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The staff are amongst the friendliest I have encountered. We had a Christmas Eve dinner at the hotel and it was wonderful, I don't even celebrate like that at home! Location wise, we were very happy, you can and we did walk to the Mutrah Souk and Corniche, it took us an hour but a lovely walk, Oman has lovely wide roads, taxis abound everywhere and should cost between 3-4 rials one way. We had two very long (and well worth it) day trips in which the hotel staff gladly organised for us. The hotel has a number of restaurants, so there is no need to go out if you have had a long day exploring this beautiful country. I sincerely hope to go back to Oman one day and I would have no hesitation in staying at Al Falaj again. A big thank you to all the staff, in particular Khamis who always greeted us with a huge smile, good morning and a chat.
This hotel has employed the friendliest stafff but more important the best ever chefs and restaurant staff. You literally will not get better food in Oman - so glad we are returning there in 2 days time!
I had stayed here for a business trip. It's an old hotel not maintained properly. The staff is good and helpful. I was given a room on th 4th floor and it was too noisy due to the huge air condition system at the ground floor. There was a constant loud mechanical sound. Plus the curtains were all torn in the room 413. I requested to change to another non smoking room which they don't have still moved to another room in 5th floor which was a smoking room. This was better as not much noise. Still the rooms were a bit dilapidated and old. Not worth staying in future.
Was here for three nights on two recent ocassions. The hotel in general, and my rooms in particular, were clean and everything worked fine. The food in the Souk Cafe was good if expensive (dinner buffet); I was pleasantly surprised at all the Sri Lankan stuff at breakfast. Front desk was pleasant, as were the wait and cleaning staff. I'm still not familiar with the geography of Muscat, but the hotel seemed to be surrounded by expressways, and while not too far off from the Old Town, didn't seem to be anywhere in particular, if you know what I mean; certainly it's not in an area with interesting areas to walk through. The taxi charge to Lulu, the big supermarket, is 2 Rial one way. Go there to stock up on all the Omani (and Indian) products you've been eating on your trip; food is always a great souvenir. It's also a good place to watch residents in the evening. Taxi charge to the airport is 10 Rial.
My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for 3 days. The service at this hotel far exceeds that one expects of a hotel of this class or size. If you happen to be Sri Lankan, you will really appreciate the morning breakfast buffet. The variety defies that you would expect of a hotel of this size. The staff at this restaurant are exceptionally friendly, of particular mention Aslam and Santosh. Speak with them, especially if you are not Sri Lankan, or if you are not familiar with Sri Lankan food, and they will navigate you through. Obviously, being an international hotel, they also have the full standard fare.
Stayed for a night during a stopover in Muscat Room was ok size, wouldn’t call it roomy There is a pool and tennis court which is nice although segregated gyms Dinner and breakfast were good Main problem - there is a pub on the 8th floor. We were on the second floor and couldn’t sleep till after midnight due to the music. Despite ringing reception the music remained
I stayed in al falaj hotel Muscat for an official training and a meeting as it is easy accessible. It was a great experience especially that I had long days and no time to go sightseeing.The staff was highly qualified, Expecially moses and vimalka warmth and welcoming willing to help and answer any request. The pool atmosphere invites one to relax with a drink in the eve at the perfect level dip in fresh water and relax after a long day under the beautiful trees. The whole experience was like living awesome. I would definitely revisit and recommend.
I was at Al Falaj Hotel for 4 days last week attending a meeting. I can rate the stay as very memorable because of the hospitality of the staff and the Sri Lankan food. I must especially mention the efforts made by the restaurant manager Aslam Sourjah to serve us at the best of his ability. He and his staff were truly customer focussed and always want to delight their customers. This is an example to the rest of the staff in the hotel. Few areas for improvement 1. Internet was poor in rooms 2. TV channels were very limited. I could not watch the Sri Lanka/ India cricket match 3. The trainer in the gym was inexperienced and cannot speak English 4. Though there was a tennis court I could not play as the the trainer could not play tennis and the next day there was a function in the tennis court 5. Garden area needs significant housekeeping improvement 6. Sri Lankan staff were above my expectations but not the Indians, especially the staff at the reception - need to be more customer service mindset Overall good hotel that can improve by attending to details. I will always go back to this hotel and recommend to others. Thank you Aslam and the restaurant team
We entered this hotel, exhausted and hungry after nearly a five hour bus ride from Seeb. The joy of hearing, at the reception, the restaurant is 24 hour! A truly delightful hotel. Room so comfortable - quiet and peaceful. Restaurant, excellent. We enjoyed two evening meals there. Breakfast - brilliant. Loved the 'homemade' jam. Such friendly staff - so helpful and everything done with a smile! Enjoyed tea and muffins in the tea room - took home a tin of tea. I'm still 'eulogizing' about the swimming pool - where we simply relaxed for a day. Oh! the warm water!
