Al Falaj Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
One of the oldest Hotels in muscat, I have been visiting this hotel since more than last twenty years, whenever I visit Muscat. Value for money, nice location, near city Center. Good food, friendly staff.
Enjoyed my stay at Al Falaj. Room was clean, spacious for 1 person, excellent customer service and currency exchange for main currencies (GBP, USD, AED,EUR etc) at the hotel which was very convenient. The outdoor pool looked good but I did not use as I felt I did not have the proper attire (from Western country which is less conservative than Oman). The only minor drawback is the location which is not that close to the major attractions, although there is a bigbus stop walking distance (5 mins) and a taxi stand with a board showing what taxi prices should be to main locations which is very helpful in not being ripped off as taxis have no meters in Oman!! Overall, happy with the hotel and thought it was good value for price I paid.
A great hotel with service and food well above what you would expect for the price. The Japanese restaurant on the top floor is, and I say this reservedly, one of the best restaurants in Muscat. The bar next to the Japanese restaurant is plain and quiet. Buffets in the main restaurant with outside seating to the pool is also good, with some lovely Sri Lankan curry delicacies, quite different from the usual Indian menus. Value for money a great hotel, with attentive and friendly staff. The recently opened tea room next to the lobby is also a nice place to meet, with a fabulous range of different teas to try.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the start of our trip before moving to a beach reSort hotel. This hotel is a great location if you want to explore muscat, the corniche, the muttrah souk. All in good distance by car. Fantastic service. Breakfast was pretty decent with great staff. The best thing about the hotel was that our flight arrived very early into muscat and we arrived At the hotel at 8.30am. Asked if there was a chance for an early check in and the staff were extremely helpful. The guy said he would check and provided us a room to check in straight away. We really appreciated this after a long tiring flight. So yea to the service yes to the location and absolutely would stay here again during a short stay. Thank you al falaj for a clean hotel, good breakfast and fantastic service. Hotel is great condition too not luxury but overall a fantastic stay for a decent hotel ( worth mentioning my expectation is decent is pretty high)
The staff - mostly people from India - is very friendly and helpfull. You can park free and there ist always free wifi. It is a good location for trips to Old Muscat and Muttrah. The rooms are clean and the breakfast ist really good with american, oriental and Indian food.
Decent hotel in the price range, a bit old but well maintained. I booked it because of its location to my office in Ruwi which was 4 kms away hence was ideal. A very satisfactory hotel, free wifi (really slow though), free parking, did not get any bell boy service as no one bothered to offer but who cares we are strong and independent!!! Has a nice club attached to it offering a very decent gym, pool, tennis court and badminton facilities. Would be ideal for a long term work stay as it fits in the budget.
The hotel rooms were very comfortable and clean. The service was beyond excellent. Starting with the doorman the staff were extremely helpful. The transpor Manager Bilal drove us around and was very informative.At the restaurant Lindsay and Santosh was always around to provide whatever we needed. We visited the night club "Autobahn" again Sandun kumara was quick to serve us. At the front office Bimalka was always available to sort out any requests that our group had. Most of the credit should go to Shreenith who overlooked the whole operation thus motivating the staff.
I stayed here for 3 nights & this hotel is more than expectations. As a 4 star hotel the rooms are big, staff is cooperative & the food is excellent. If you want to eat here go for it. Their food is reasonable & awesome. Location is ok if you have work in this area. All the best
This hotel is good for rest & relax There is 2 good swimming pool and balkon area at the grand and behind of hotel you can see mountains, and breakfast is do good , stuffs are so good , and every 48 hours they changing wifi s password, and here so near to national museum, to beach & to traditional museum &?sultan qabus castle & old muscat . I m happy that here am i . But just 1 thing is not so good At the all floor windows is not good ( I don't know this connects to arabic architecture or hotel architecture) & for room they don't put anything for washing toth , & shave tools & you must tell them if you want . just 6 floors is non smoker.
Standards are quite high (for Oman) and service is excellent. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel needs renovation soon and the location is not great (if you want to spend your time in Muscat). They compensate it with a large parking space and a dedicated taxi stop where you can take a taxi within minutes. Breakfast is good. Try to find offers to get a better price than the official room rate as it is not that cheap.
