The hotel is very, very good value for money, and their friendly service is so fine. I highly recommend the hotel !!! Especially, I would like to mention the Hotel Manager, Nader Hassan, for his outstandig service, helpful- and kindless. Actually, I should mention everyone for their service and helpfullness. Anything else would not be fair. I stayed at the Dolphin for 5 nights at #404. It was a very good sized room, the bathroom window however could not be opened and there were water dripping on the bathroom floor near the toilet. This of course needed to be fixed but I did not mention this, because to me it did not matter. They serve breakfast at the hotel, which is very, very nice, and very personalized service from their friendly chef and his staff. I had all the things I wanted including my daily omelet :) The hotel is situated Al-Kkuwair-area close to supermarket, where you find a lot of restaurants and only 10 min taxi drive from Muscats great Shopping Mall. If you want to go to the Quom Beach, the taxi will take you there for 2RO (10-15 min). Most taxi-trips in city will cost you 2.0RO (USD5). Airport Transport: Just outside the hotel you can find local bus no 8, which takes you straight to the airport in about 45 min. Price is 0.500 RO (USD 1,50). For me it worked perfectly I would not think twice in booking a room at the Dolphin Hotel again, if I decided to go to Muscat for holidays again. Thank you guys...... :)

Nice swimming pool but electrics look dodgy with open sockets around pool . The staff seem to want to be paid in cash and not show you receipt and was a big problem when wanted to pay by card but manager was nice and straight up but think he need to check staff!
