      Homely Hospitality”

      Conveniently located on the highway close to Nizwa

      We felt very welcome and safe and comfortable at the Majan Guest House. We arrived after a long drive from Muscat and was not sure what to expect of Nizwa. The Majan Guest house was located on the way into town and was easily seen from the bus. It was easy to get taxis from outside the Guest House into Nizwa. The food we ordered and ate at the restaurant was freshly prepared. The staff was very helpful. As there are no hotels in Nizwa, Majan Guest house is a very good place to stay.

      Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff”

      Big and clean room, friendly staff, facilities at hotel standards

      I enjoyed my stay at the Majan Guest House. The guesthouse has tried its best in providing service. The room that I got, though it had no window view (it was the bathroom that faced the street outside), but its size compensated for that. There were complementary beverages and daily amenities in the room, which I don't normally expect from "guesthouses". The location is not so practical for solo travelers, who have no private transport. To go downtown (souq and fort), you need to hire a taxi (engaged 1.5000 - 2 OR) or wait for a microbus (200 baisal).

      Great option in Nizwa”

      Great option for travellers who love to stay at guesthouses with a local touch

      This is a very nice guesthouse on the main road to Nizwa. You will need transport to get to the center of town. The guesthouse is not the newest anymore, but rooms are renovated, very cleen and we felt very comfortable. It is a perfect stay for travellers, if your expectations are not to high and you love to stay at guesthouses with a local touch. The rooms are a bit pricey compared to other hotels in Oman. The breakfast consists of toast, butter & jam, egg, juices, fruit, coffee & tea and much more. We would return to this guesthouse without any hesitation on our next trip to Nizwa.

      Very Nice Rooms - Poor Breakfast”

      Room Size, Beds, friendlyness

      The rooms are very spacious at Majan Guesthouse. Nice beds and bathroom. Unfortunately there are many works going on the road infront of the guesthouse. So it wasn't easy to get to the Guesthouse...and they have a poor breakfast. However as there is limited possibility of accompdation in Nizwa it's a good choice.

      The guesthouse is located along the main road connecting Firq with Nizwa. approx. 5km from Nizwa and 1.5km from Firq. Rooms are spacious, and on the building's rear side also quiet. The hotel offers a wide selection of local dishes for breakfast, what is a big plus.

      Luxury hotel at a budget price (for Oman)”

      I can't believe all the bad reviews this hotel gets. What do these people expect for 20 Rials? Buckingham Palace? This is a REALLY nice hotel. The first room I was shown had a window which opened onto the corridor, which I didn't like, so they gave me another and this room was perfect in every way. Big and spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, large HD satellite TV, nice bathroom, free wi-fi and a great free breakfast. Also the staff, especially the young Indian guy, are really friendly and speak excellent English. What more could you want? The only downside is the location, 5km from the centre of town. No problem if you have a car but if, like me, you rely on public transport your only option is taxis, but fortunately the share-taxis are cheap and plentiful. Otherwise, highly recommended.

      Hardest beds on earth ”

      Room had both fan and air con

      There is not many accommodation options in Nizwa and therefore the prices are very high compared to the standard of room. Majan Guest House is a budget hotel, but at 110 USD a night it is definately a very expensive budget option. The room is clean and the water was hot, but the beds were horribly hard, so sleep was impossible. Breakfast was adequate.

      Good wifi, short driving distance to main part of Nizwa, next to a fast food restaurant

      I wasn't expecting much of this accommodation as it was a bit of a last resort as the options in Nizwa and the surrounding area is quite limited, but outside of the friendly front desk personnel and good wifi, I wouldn't stay here more than one night. For all the rooms that they had in the guest house, I got a room that had one single window that looked back into the corridor of the hotel, so the room was literally dark all the time. There were ants all over the bathroom and even some on my bed. The closet had a bizarre odor, so I didn't use it. The breakfast was acceptable and simple: eggs (boiled and fried), chicken nuggets, juice, coffee and bread.
