I am staying here from last eight months, it is like a second home to me now. Property is situated in Ruwi business district aptly suitable for my stay. All the team members are very friendly and always attentive to my needs specially Mr. Girish in Front office. I will highly recommend this hotel for both business and leisure travellers.

The hotel lies in an area where there is nothing to see or do, so a car or taxi is required. Food is served as a buffet but it is nicely prepared. Swimmingpool is ok but with a limited number of chairs. Skybar at the top has a British feel but was empty. The bar at groundfloor was full. Ask for a non smokers room because ours was really reeking.

This was our first hotel on our two week Oman trip. Easy enough to find from the airport (about 40 minutes) and plenty of parking. Our plane arrived early but we were checked in quickly and in our room by 10 am. Room was great and the lobby areas were spacious and pleasant. We didn’t eat here so can’t talk about the food. This hotel was superb value for money compared to many hotels in Oman. One downside was the pool. There were very few loungers and we never got near one. Each afternoon that we fancied a dip the pool was full of children. It appeared that they were not residents but members of the sports club. I would urge the hotel To review their policy of allowing non residents in the pool.

We arrived by hire car as we decided fairly early on in our travel planning that nowhere in Muscat was going to be easily accessible by public transport and so it was great that there was a large carpark right outside the hotel. Situated in Ruwi which is apparently the main transport hub of Muscat it is one of the better hotels in the city. We had a good sized room with a queen bed. The room was very clean, comfortable and had tea and coffee making facilities as well as the usual television. The male staff were very friendly and helpful but the main draw was the two swimming pools which were brilliant to laze around after a day sightseeing. We did not use the restaurant, preferring to eat out all the time so we can't comment on it.

I stayed at Al Falaj hotel whilst on a stopover in Muscat. The hotel is conveniently located, it is in the Ruwi central district of Muscat. There is a small bakery/supermarket nearby. It is easy to get to both the Mutrah district and west of the city (beaches and shopping malls). Hotel staff are nice and check out is at 12pm which is quite late. I checked in at 1am after arriving in Muscat, which was not a problem (I think the reception is open all night). One negative I noticed was that the central window in the room opens and the lock did not work. I was on the 6th floor and there was no issue from a security perspective, but additional care should be taken when traveling with kids. Apart from this I recommend Al Falaj hotel.

Me and my friend stayed in this hotel because it is near to Ruwi and muttrah. This hotel is just an average, they have less amneties to use for. The room is small, so don't expect comfort.. Kinda noisy, since our room just adjacent to the elevator. That Indian staff was not accommodating and friendly.

Spent two nights at Al Falaj Hotel, Ruwi. We were on an business trip and the location was ideal for our purpose of visit. The staff were all friendly. Our Check-in & Check-out was attended by Amit, he was courteous and helpful. The room (Room # 324) was clean, spacious and well furnished. The toilet was spacious with all the necessary amenities. The only downside was the noise from the club, which went on till the early hours of the morning. Our overall experience was good, and will return to Al Falaj Hotel for our future business visits to Muscat.

Spent four nights during a fishing holiday. Rooms are spotless, front desk staff are friendly and helpful, beds are comfortable, wifi works well throughout the hotel. The only (minor) drawbacks are some of the fittings are tired and the location are a bit out of the way. Given the price a very good choice/value if you are looking for a base for a sightseeing or fishing holiday, but not for a beach vacation. Didn't try the pool or the hotel restaurant, but there are plenty of choices to eat or shop for food in the area.

The hotel is staffed with helpful and meticulous employees. Buffet food during weekends is OK but quality and choices insufficient during the week.The hotel is quiet, clean and well located. Easily accessible to transportation. Suitable for families with children but the swimming pool is getting old and has to be redone

Excellent, clean and modern hotel in the older part of Muscat. Smoke free rooms, large in size, and look to be recently refurbished. Large free car park - this hotel is definitely worth more money (Shh don't tell them that!)
