This is a great homestay experience. The host is very kind, and if you're looking to stay in a home, rather than in an impersonal hotel, it's the place for you. Make sure to ask for very precise directions to the place--we arrived late at the airport and rented a car, and got quite lost. It's only a 10min drive from the airport, so make sure you have Google maps on your phone or ask in advance!
I definitely recommend you to stay here. Selma will welcome you as special guests, feeling part of the family. Located in a residential area, this B&B will offer you clean and nice cottages in the garden, incredible breakfast and friendly house owner (Selma) available for any info about Oman, from the history of the country to the tips and tricks for tourists. We were so amazed about this place that we came back for the last days in Muscat!
Nous sommes arrivés à 4 et nous avons reçu un accueil très chaleureux de la part de notre hôtesse. Café dates excellentes. Elle a été de très bon conseil. Les petits-déjeuners étaient copieux variés et toujours bien cuisinés. Les chambres sont spacieuses et la climatisation fonctionne bien. Le matin nous prenions le petit-déjeuner dans le jardin au milieu des fleurs. Excellent séjour à Muscate dans une maison très bien située pour l'aéroport, la grande mosquée etc...
Si je reviens à Oman je retournerai chez notre hôtesse.
Selma was so welcoming and friendly. We had the most lovely time in her accommodations and enjoyed delicious breakfast for our two night stay. The garden is breathtaking and the location is in a wonderful neighborhood that is very central. We will definitely be visiting again!
My wife an I spend two days with Selma at Garden Roomz. We were very comfortable and Selma a most gracious host. The breakfast was amazing, a good way to start the day. Selma gave us information on where to shop. Local knowledge. The garden surrounding the cabin is full of wild songbirds, also fish and turtles. We would Definitely return.
