The hotel is very nice, clean with a pleasant seaside location.
The rooms with the town view , are overlooking a noisy building site , where the work is continuous 24 hours .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RogPen Muscat Intercon - A real gem
Although built in 1977 the Muscat Intercon remains a real gem. The hotel and staff remain as welcoming and as helpful as ever. I have stayed here on every business trip to Muscat over the last ten years - unless the hotel has been full. Returning recently for a leisure visit the same level of hospitality and helpfulness was there - a really pleasant experience - like home from home. Well done to Alicia Suratos and her team.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidEPT60 Great location in Muscat
The IC was well located for my principle purpose of my visit, namely business.
I really enjoyed the outside terraces and gardens, and it was fantastic to be able to walk directly onto the beach for a walk before breakfast. Be warned, the beach gate is only open from 6 am to 7 pm. Though it is not much further to walk to the front entrance.
I had a great meal at the Tomato, sitting outside on a wonderful evening. Similarly a healthly breakfast on the terrace each morning.
The atrium of the hotel is spectacular!
The staff were excellent, and the service was prompt. I will be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by desertexpat Location and great service
My friend and I chose the Intercontinental mainly for it's location - close proximity to the Royal Opera House and adjacency to the beach. We had a very nice stay, the staff and service was excellent. We were given a room with ocean view overlooking the tree tops of the garden. The hotel is an older building, with a classically modern atrium lobby. However, the room while clean and functional, felt dated and in need of a remodel to justify the high cost and be comparable with other 5 star hotels. The grounds surrounding the hotel also need some updating: Since it is one of the few hotels so close to the Opera House and it's new Galleria, the main entry/grounds should be more pedestrian friendly to accommodate walking between the hotel and the Opera House. The visual and physical connection to the beach could be improved. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again for future visits to the Opera House.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Real Frank Good service but spoilt by much needed upgrading
The staff in all areas were great. Offerred timely and attentive services. Courteous and lots of smiles.
The rooms certainly need refurbishing. It is a challenge to open and close the closet door, some powerpoints are out of service. Power sockets are not conveniently located. The toilet needs overhauling too. However, the bed was comfortable enough for a good night sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Swede Great Facility and Location
Stayed at this hotel to celebrate a Friend's 15th Wedding Anniversary and a Birthday - staff couldn't do enough for us; very welcoming, very attentive and very good - period; worth paying extra for Club facilities. Good pool facilities and good for local amenities. Great place for a break and a really enjoyable stay at a hotel; it is a little dated, but do not let that put you off!!
