Lonely Planet review

If anything is ‘happening’ in Muscat, chances are it is doing so at the ‘InterCon’ – a really excellent hotel in terms of service and amenities. While not the prettiest building in town, this hotel has a fine interior, quality rooms, shady gardens and access to the beach. Jawaharat Al-Shatti Complex – a happening shopping complex, one of the liveliest in town, including coffeehouses and restaurants – is within walking distance.

Our independent authors have visited InterContinental Muscat and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Muscat.
