            Location

            staff not too friendly. Place also looks somehow creepy when we checked on at night because many people were roaming around even in corridors and making noise.

            Stuff are nice and helpful, the shower are horrible, just drops of water...

            The location..

            Reception is poor.service is not good, the staff are not so friendly.

            Reception does not know you are arriving, this is even after confirmation on previous day.

            The rooms were really big and the showers were great.

            The first time I stayed, the bed was really comfortable. The second time, the bed was really hard and noisy. The hallway was also noisy. The one time I ate breakfast, everything was cold (eggs, French Toast, coffee) and the toast was either under-toasted or burnt. Only one type of jam for the toast. I'm happy with the rooms overall but eat breakfast elsewhere now.

            The staff were courteous and helpful.

            There were ants in the bathroom and bedroom. When I asked the cleaning staffto provide an additional towel since there were two adults (my wife & I) in the room, the staff told me that I could have only one! There was no hot water (only very slightly warm water).

            Great central location close to major venues.

            Smoke smell in room.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            They didn't have a single room reserved for me, but upgraded me to a deluxe without an extra charge. Most of the hotel staff (not the front desk) were very friendly, helpful, and kind.

            I didn't like that the front desk personnel did not speak English, were not very friendly, and could not give us any information regarding Muscat, how to get around, where to go, where to find a bank open. . . I also didn't like the free breakfast served in the dining room as the food was horrible. The shower in my room ran very hot. . . the cold water did not seem to be working.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            I liked the wide screen TV

            I did not like the front desk information service and the distance from shopping

            Please be informed that Bowshar International Hotel facilities are too bad and it not 3 Star Hotel. Facilities provided by this hotel is too poor and there is no swimming pool, no jacucy, steam bath or any other facilities. even the break fast is too poor. they were supplying only bread and jam. Is this 3 star facilities. We trust Booked.net and atleast you have to review the services before adding hotels in your list. Totally the stay was miserable for us. We suggest to give the outside hotel view picture plus if any breakfast providing then kindly show some pictures in advance for customers review.

            courteous staff, central location, quick check-in and check-out process, quick room service and cleanliness.

            No massage parlor or other recreational facilities

            It's pretty relaxed, very cheap & the free internet is a very good bonus considering what the competition is quoting, without this service.

            Reception staff on the day of return was poorly qualified for his job.

            Friendly staff

            Background music was played in the hotel all the time and I found it hard to sleep at night because of this. If they only turned this off at night it would have made it a more pleasant stay.

          • Family with children
            3.2

            i like the hotel location only.

            in the booking website, they are showing the photos for sultan qaboos mosque like it is very near. but the fact there is very big distance between the hotel and the mosque.

          • Single

            Staff are generally friendly. Understands English fairly well. It's near major roads, Al Ghubrah and Sultan Qaboos street, easy to find. Hotel rate is competitive. Can get water from nearby Mars Hypermarket, about 10mins walk. LuLu hypermarket is about 15mins walking distance. Ok during November period. Numerous coffee shops within walking distance.

            Getting a cab/taxi is not friendly. I was on business trip, it's November, so it ok for me for wear suit and tie with laptop bag to walk out the small road to catch a cab in the main street. Imagine that when it is summer. Continental free breakfast is not appealing. Should include all kind of breakfast into the hotel rate, it's only 1 to 2 omr difference.
