Hassan was a great host, he really made us feel at home and part of the family. The neighborhood is a little remote but the family has several cars and enjoys giving tours and driving guests wherever they would like. All of Hassan's brothers and sisters are wonderful and the house is always clean and stocked with food. We had a really great time and loved being able to see the life of an Omani family from up close. Really recommend!!!
HASSAN made my trip brilliant, I didn't have much information about the city, but he took me to many attractions in Muscat. he made me feel at home, I met his nice family and spent very nice time in his clean apartment. Hassan is someone who loves to meet people from different parts of the world he is very open minded and so happy to help his gusts with anything to make their stay unforgettable.
words are not enough to describe everything.
Dear Hassan Rise& Shine (-:
Very friendly reception and great wilingness to help and exchange. We were allowed to use the laundry machine which was good after the desert, and the WiFi plus printer for the boarding passes. The directions to the apartment were sufficient, and we were instantly picked up when I called. The room was clean and thanks to the air condition we could get some sleep before heading to the airport again.
It was very nice to be part of the Al-Riyami brothers household for 2 days! Although Hassan himself was out of the country for most of the time of our stay, he arranged to meet us before our stay and we could easily contact him while he was away. So that was very well arranged. Also, his brothers were there for us during our stay and helped us finding our way in muscat! We felt very welcome and at home .
Hassan did a great job. We are lucky that we've chosen his Home. Hassan is very communicative, gave us advices, answered to our questions or just spent time with us. We felt comfortable at his home! If you go there ask him for Shuwa!!! The Place is good located, taxis are available and each attraction is reachable with low fare. Wifi is very fast!
My wife and I stayed at Hassan's place in Muscat for two nights. Thanks to Hassan and his brothers, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and experienced true Omani hospitality. We felt like we were part of the family, and wish we could have stayed much longer. Hassan met us at the airport, helped me get a SIM, and he or one of his brothers took us to several sites, including the mosque and souq. Muscat is spread out, and it's difficult to get around without driving (or taking a taxi). It was incredible to have a local "guide" to show us around or give advice about where to go. I use the word "guide" very loosely, because it was more like spending time with friends we've known for years!
The bed and room were comfortable. Even though the room faces the street, it's pretty quiet. The bathroom was adequate, but it is not connected to the room and is shared. The living room is comfortable, and it's great to be able to spend time with everyone and be treated like a member of the family.
Hassan is a very friendly young man with lots of drive and ambition. He was also very helpful providing airport pick up and drop. And also sending me off every morning to my meeting places. The room itself was basic but comfortable and it has grown a little more messy than the photo. Wifi was good, which was important to me; having stayed in some Muscat hotels where wifi was never stable. Bathroom and toilet was clean though not attached. Location was good and accessible to almost anywhere in Muscat. The most convenient part was there is a money changer, tour agent just on the ground floor of the building.
