Hello, I´m trying since two weeks to make a reservation in a hotel directly in the harbour of Mutrah in Muscat/Oman. But Hotel Mina and Al-Nahdha I coulnd`t reach - perhaps they are closed !??
How knows a - existing...... - hotel (Low Budget) directly on the corniche???? Thanks a lot - it will be my first time in Muscat.
Try Mutrah Hotel. I think you can book online with them. There is also Naseem Hotel. Both are on the corniche. You can find reviews for both of them on Tripadvisor I think.
By the way, lots of places in Oman are really really bad at replying to emails, especially the smaller independent hotels/tour companies. That doesn't mean they're bad places to stay, they're just bad at email :) so always a good idea to call instead, if you can.
Thank you very much for your answer. Of course I have tried to call and sent a fax .... - but no answer.
I think Mutrah Hotel is a little bit far away from the harbour - isn´t it? What Do you think: Do wie have a chance to find one of the budget-hotels near the harbour without a reservation next weekend? Again Thank you ! And best regards from Germany! Gerhard
It's not far at all from the harbour. There is a road coming down the kind of splits the harbour from the rest of the corniche, but it's all within a few minutes walk. I don't know about the places you've tried, but a friend stayed at Mutrah hotel a few months ago and liked it.
