Where to stay in Muscat – Crowne Plaza Hotel

The Crown Plaza is located on the shore of the Gulf of Oman in Muscat, which is the capital city of Oman. The Crowne Plaza is an older hotel enjoying a perfect position and with its own swimming pool and private beach.


The staff were most welcoming and helpful during the check-in and provided us information about the hotel benefits, such as the free shuttle bus to Muthrah Corniche and Mutrah Souq and Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.

Our room was on the 6th floor with a view of Al Qurum beach and the pool. The room is reasonably sized and comes with a minibar, tea/coffee maker, a bathrobe and slippers.

From the airport it is a 20 minute drive with a taxi. The location is good and as taxi’s are reasonably priced nothing is too far away.
