We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Our first night we arrived at 3am. We requested a reduced rate as we checked in late and the manager very nicely accepted our request, although he did not have to.
The rooms are nice, clean and very well decorated for a business trip. I was travelling with my wife, would have preferred something more comfortable. The breakfast was very basic. It seemed to be a new hotel and had very little occupancy.
The hotel is not on the main road, so you have to walk a little to get to the main road. We had hired a car from the airport, so did not have problems moving around. Lots of nice local restaurants near the hotel (via car).

Stayed here for 3 nights in early March 2010. Prior to this we checked out the four hotels on tje Muttrah corniche which were cheaper but did not really meet our needs . Of the four we thought the Marina was the best, all were preety cramped and the Corniche had the old noisey in the window A/cs.

The Hala is located in the business area in walking distance of nothing so you will need your own transoprt or use buses or taxis. The surrondings are open but a bit grim with building sites close by . It seems to be used by quite a few short term business visitors . The lobby is big and impressive and the rooms comfortable but the funiture was showing signs opf wear with totn covers on the settee, bathroom fittings detached from wall and faulty taps ( which was fixed whilst we were there). The kitchen was poorly equipped and not really sufficint foif self catering ( no hob , pots or pans ), Breakfast, liunch and dinner were available in the restaurant for 2.5 RO per meal. Stay here if you want reasonably priced accommodation and have transport. If not you may want to try the corniche hotels . Internet available in the room if you have your own laptop at a charge . No pool

This hotel has just been refurbished so it looks excellent. I stayed in a one bed room apartment and it was really clean and spacious. The service was very good and for the price I thought that this was an excellent hotel. The only downside is that its located in a construction site, but that didn't effect us.

The saying you get what you pay for rings true about the Hala. We went to Oman to learn how to dive so spent 4 days out in the water and were not looking for a fancy hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean, although the fittings in the rooms were a little ineffective - such as the shower.

The breakfasts were terrible and if you were not down for breakfast before 9am there was nothing left. It was not such a big deal for us as they were truly quite bad. We ended up going to the supermarket and stocking up our room fridge with breakfast items (although no toaster or plates in the rooms).

The location of the hotel is not great - it is called the CBD but really there is not much around. You need your own car to get anywhere. There were a few restaurants within walking distance but nothing worth noting in this review.

If you are looking for a really basic place to stay then Hala is fine. We paid 30OR per night (during peak season) so I really cant complain as our main purpose for visiting Muscat was to go diving and we hardly spent anytime at the hotel.
