                  • Friendly staff, comfortable surroundings, quick business stop in Muscat and sunshine all day and a fantastic beach. Loved everything about the hotel, s an iconic building and a nice one for good money. The lobby area was attractive, service was varied and the concierges were very helpful. My room was exceptionally quiet and the standard of the food was great.

                    Your immediate view is the car park, decor is very worn, dated and ugly, poor facilities for star rating. Bathrooms are tired and smelly.

                    Not a nice beach and certainly not for small kids, old hotel. The shower was surprisingly poor.

                  • Pool area is nice and the position of the hotel is very good and the bed was very comfortable. The staff could not have been any more pleasant, the rooms are adequate and well equiped, the restaurants are excellent and each carry an extensive wine selection.

                    No private beach and very poor service. Internet usage was expensive.

                  • The location is perfect too, large gardens and access to beach, the hotel is well situated for relaxation. Service is very good, the Rooms are clean and the restaurants are UK prices and the food very enjoyable.

                    Staff rather aloof and old facilities and furniture.

                  • The pool area was nice, beach access was good and the staff were excellent and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The reception was also great, rooms were spacious and well looked after, unsurprisingly the restaurant was very quiet. The snacks were very poor and not many choice.

                    Not luxerious compared to the value of money paid and old style. High prices for services rendered, the sliding windows were full of the last cutomers handprints and the bathroom mirror was dirty.

                  • Best location in Muscat, near the beach and the hotel has many activities and a good selection of dining venues. The staff are friendly, helpful and rooms are sufficiently spacious and clean. The breakfast spread at the main restaurant is fabulous and the leisure pool is really nice and set in magnificent gardens.

                    Cost was high, the tv was very poor and the remote control was not working.

                  • The location is good too and beach is clean. Hotel is very comfortable and the design of the building inside is nice even is an old construction. The lobby is impressive, service is excellent and very efficient nothing is a problem.

                    The mountain view room looked an awful lot like a parking lot view room.

                  • Near to a few shops and beach were great. The hotel was nice and new Royal Opera House was top class. The service was fantastic and very helpful the room was clean and well presented.

                    Really, this place isn't good, the building looks old and back to reception. The bathroom was small, several restaurants were not cheap.

                  • The location is very good, beach is nice and the Intercon hotel is an excellent hotel. Rates should be more reasonable as i believe is very high and the lobby area is attractive and huge. The staff are friendly, rooms are restful and easily the best organised buffet meal I have ever been to.

                    Way overpriced for the quality, the building itself definitely looks dated from the outside and very old and tired interior. Customer service not great, rotten furniture 3 and toilet not clean. Chaotic and noisy breakfast, business facilities are very poor.
