Fodor's Expert Review Pioneer Hotel Apartments

Nuzhah St., Muscat, Masqat, 114, Oman Fodor's Choice

In a residential neighborhood, the hotel may seem a bit out of the way, but it is a mere 10 minutes from the beaches at Al Bustan and the main tourist attractions of the Mutrah Souk and Old Muscat, and it's an ideal home base for those traveling with family or planning a longer stay. Luxurious, apartment-style accommodations are well-designed, with brand-new furnishings, separates, and lovely views of the mountains. Service, from check-in to check-out is impeccable, which is no surprise as the Omani owners are on-site daily to keep an eye on things and to get to know their guests; they are happy to assist and are a wealth of information offering insights about the local area that no other hotel concierges offer. The rooftop pool is a beautiful, tranquil place to spend the afternoon, and the restaurant provides service there throughout the day. The room service and restaurant are quite good and extremely affordable. The hotel does not have an alcohol license, but there are bars nearby.
