About This Listing
Historical Nizwa welcomes you! What better place to understand Oman than in the home of a local English-speaking family who are eager to greet you and share their lifestyle?
An Omani family welcomes you to Nizwa and Muscat! (check out Muscat listing at (website hidden)).
In Nizwa you will be accommodated in a clean, quiet, and spacious room with a private entrance and bathroom for your comfort and convenience.
We encourage guests to immerse in our culture by joining our daily activities and getting a taste of Oman’s life.
Smoking in the house is not allowed.
It was all good in Hassan's place. His father was helpful in all our requests. Room is as described, large and clean.
The stay in Nizwa was very pleasant. We did not meet Hassan as he was in Muscat but Hassan did answer every time promptly and gave instructions to make it easy to find his home. Ismail ( Hassan's father) did everything possible to make us feel at home, showed us around and even took us to dinner.Thank you Ismail for your kindness and for answering all our questions! The place was very clean, good bathroom and looked exactly as in the photo.
We read "Omani family opens its home to you" and booked this rooms.
Hassans father showed us our room in the back of the house (own entrance). Clean, new bathroom, like in the photos.
We weren't introduced to the family, didn1n see anything else than our room. Disapointing!
They don't do breakfast. The last morning Hassans father apoligized that he hadn't time for us and we drank tea together and talked 10 minutes. That was all! Next time we will stay in a hotel.
Ishmail (Hassan's dad) made us very welcome, showing us a good place for dinner in the neighbourhood, and having tea with us in the morning. He is a well travelled and interesting man, and his house is great - spacious, very clean and just as described.
The room is clean with a large bed. The wifi is good and the bathroom is equally clean with a good, hot shower.
The location is slightly out of the way - you'll need a car to get there from the centre of Nizwa.
Hassan's father, Ismail, met us and was very welcoming.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the family home of Hassan in Nizwa. The room was spacious and clean with a fridge, an en suite bathroom with a good shower and it's own entrance so you don't need to disturb the family.
Hassan mailed a good map so we where able to find the house with out too many problems.
It's also possible to park in front of the house away from the street.
Nizwa and the surrounding is fantastic as long as you have a car.
I can highly recommend this listing and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
