As I write this at 2.45 am in my hotel room the music and vibration from their club pounds away keeping me awake. Their staff says it was supposed to stop at 2am and well, enough said. I paid to be upgraded to a sea view room and I wished I was warned about noise at night that will wake...

The room was comfortable though the bathroom does need renovations.The receptionist Jamuna was very helpful & courteous. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was good with a varied choice. The best part of the stay was the view from the sea facing room. Though this property looked a little outdated when compared to other intercontinental hotels, the stay was on the whole...

This is a traditional old hotel with wide corridors and very dated furnishings. Rooms are clean and good size but wow it needs a refurbishment. No separate showers but all in the bath and the spa really can't be called that. Couple of rooms where they seem to do a few treatments. Gym was well equipped but I thought shower...

We saw the construction works when we approached the hotel, and at checking we requested a room on the quiet side, but it's full so we have 8 idyllic nights overlooking the cranes and construction of the new Intercontinental buildings and opera house extension. This is not what I wanted and is the fault of my travel agent for not...

Located in a fairly central area to the touristy areas, the Intercontinental Muscat was a good base for our 3 night stay in Muscat. The malls and souqs are all within driving distance of the hotel and was also a source for local meals. The hotel has a very impressive atrium and our room had a panoramic view of the...

I have always enjoyed this old hotel. The grounds are really nice. The lobby is huge and goes all the way up to the top. I used the executive lounge this time and it was very nice. The meals there were very good quality and the drink was plentiful
