My stay at Majan Guesthouse”
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.
Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff”
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).
Good value for money by Oman standards. Good Wi-Fi in room. Location 4 kms from fort etc and excellent for Mises and various other places if you have a car not so good if using public transport hence the 4 grading.
A good Omani hotel. Good value, clean. Not the flashiest of places but ok. ”
No elevator. But plenty of help if you ask. Breakfast adequate and 7 kilometers from the Fort. It's ok for the price I paid - I wanted somewhere clean and comfortable - not the Hilton - and that's what I got
Certainly not the nicest place in town but for what you're paying it's fine. Nothing special, nothing bad. The room seemed a bit small at first but there was a sort of walk-in closet area leading to the bathroom that made it work. Wifi worked great, breakfast was decent, and it was pretty quiet for the most part. Close enough to town, malls and supermarkets if you have a car. Staff were friendly and accommodating, even when I wanted breakfast early and to borrow some dishes.
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.
Nice place to stay for a good price”
Nice place to stay considering what you pay for it. The total average score is definitely very low. I would give it higher than a 6.6. The staff are extremely friendly, the room was spacious and clean and the wifi efficient. Only the bathroom was a bit outdated and could use a bit of maintanance here and there but who cares... Breakfast is simple but satisfactory. All in all a good place to explore the town from. :-)
Good enough for the lack of options in Nizwa”
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.
what a hotel!!”
Thanks a lot for all staff and people around for helping me. Omanis really kind people. Staff really kind people. everything was good enough!. only little mess with a toilet and a road still under construction but not a big deal. will be better in future. overall thumbs up! I will come again.
Great option in Nizwa”
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.
Good location. Easy access to Fort.
Good place for short stopovers”
Clean room, good service and location. We stayed 1 night and it's a good place for stop overs for good value for money.
Helpful staff Convenient location
This hotel was nothing special. It's recommended in the Lonely Planet, but it is just an average hotel. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was decent. Although breakfast was from 7-10, the food is cold by 8:30 and doesn't really get refilled by the staff. The room was comfortable, clean, and big. We would consider staying again, but wouldn't go out of our way to book it.
Very Nice Rooms - Poor Breakfast”
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.
It's a budget hotel”
I would not reccomend to stay at Majan Guest House. The hotel is clean but very old. The bed was uncomfortable, so hard it seemed to sleep on the floor. Very noisy A/C. It's ok for the low price, backpackers and very youngers.
Decent hotel in a place where there aren't many”
I wasn't driving so getting here was a bit tough with all the taxi drivers who were trying to fleece travellers. And there was also some upgrading works going on outside the main road so it was a little dusty. There is only one place to eat and that's Hungry Bunny which is beside the hotel. Other eateries are about 1 to 2 km either way. This won't matter if you have your own transport.
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.
Hardest beds on earth ”
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 place to stay near Nizwa”
A good value for money and location for visiting Nizwa. The room was fine, if a little dated but everything worked and was clean. Breakfast included but basic. The location is good, only a few minutes south of Nizwa center.
Nizwa is very expensive”
The place is not a nice hotel. But the staff is very nice. They refuse to let you carry your bags to or from the room and are very helpful.
ok for 1 nigth”
Basic hotel but overall clean.
Friendly, clean place to stay with very helpful staff. Would recommend!
Very nice, great location”
The hotel is a block from Republic Square, the breakfast was great and the staff was friendly.
Clean and spacious room. Clean linen. Great breakfast. Easy parking. Great breakfast.

Quiet and Accomodating satff”
Very accomodating and friendly staff. Decent and satisfactory breakfast. Rooms are spacious and clean.
Comfortable, helpful and pleasant.
Stated one night would recommend to other travellers
Value for money budget hotel”
Excellent hotel for a stopover on-route to Salalah if you are travelling from UAE. Nice spacious rooms and spankingly clean. They have family rooms which can easily accomodate a family of four.
Good place to stop of en route...”
I stayed at Majan on the way back from Jebel Shams and en route to Muscat. It was a good place to stay, clean, spacious. The wifi was good. The breakfast satisfactory.
good for money spent”
friendly and efficient staff breakfast may be improved location easy to find but you need car to go in city downtown
Clean and nice base to see the sights around Nizwa”
Cheap option in Nizwa”
Not much choice in Nizwa, so we pick up this one.
Nice apartments for families ”
Nice place for an overnight stay”
Pleasant, but due to roadworks difficult to reach by car.
Motel of poor quality”
Nizwa is an important starting point to discover the beautiful mountains, but regretfully the choice of hotels is limited. Should we come back, Majan will not be our first choice!
Rates charged are too high wrt to its standards”
It was a very poor stay, no lift in the hotel, staff shortage. A/c cooling was less due to its capacity wrt to size of room. High Rates.. no wifi on 1st Floor. No attached bathroom facilities poor
it was normal”
normal in general comparing to the price, but the wifi was very poor
Quite old and worn out hotel overly hard beds”
Quite old and worn out hotel overly hard beds. The building has no insulation, thus rooms that are overlooking the street arequite noisy.
Clean, very basic”
Pleasant Hotel/Guest House but no lift”
One day in Nizwa”
We had a very pleasant stay. Internet was iffy in the room but great in the lobby. Staf was friendly and helpful. Romsare nicely deocrated. Comfortable beds. Lovely doors.
easy to find with good location and good breakfast”
Ok at the price ”
Relatively basic but clean. Stairs - no elevator and no rooms on the ground floor so if you have disabilities might be a problem for you. Breakfast basic but fine.
Precio calidad muy razonable, habitacion limpia”
Nos gusto la experiencia, volveria
Buen hotel para visitar Nizwa”
La primera noche hubo un problema con la reserva y nos dieron una habitación mejor sin cargo alguno. Personal amable.
excellent séjour ”
sommes ravis de notre séjour dans cet hôtel ; avons eu un problème avec nos voisins de chambre la première nuit et le responsable de jour a réglé aussitôt notre problème avec gentillesse et efficacité ; personnel d'entretien , responsables de jour et de nuit toujours très serviables et disponibles ; merci à eux
Mauvais services et rapport qualité prix”
Refus du manager de l'hotel d'ajuster notre réservation: nous avions réserver 2 chambres familiales pour notre famille (3 enfants), lorsque nous avons compris qu'une chambre suffisait nous avons demandé à annuler la deuxième pour la seconde nuit: payer 3 chambres au lieu de 4. Refus catégorique de l'hotel alors qu'en principe cela est possible. Nous avons perdu 200 euros à cause de cela. De plus, le service est simplement inexistant, plateaux repas trainant dans les couloirs, petit déjeuner indigent, etc... Rien n'est fait pour le service des clients et en plus, c'est cher! Rapport qualité déplorable Donc très décevant.
1 stop a Nizwa”
Hotel eloigne du centre de Nizwa et pas facile a trouver a cause des travaux en cours. Hotel un peu vetuste. Chambre plutot grande, salle de bain moyenne mais propre. Grand parking a disposition. Petit dejeuner inclut, pas terrible et peu de choix. Internet par wifi OK. Le personnel est sympatique et a ete de bons conseils.
hotel a 8 km du centre ville. les chambres sur la nationale sont tres bruyantes. l'hotel est vraiment défréchi, limite propre, le petit déjeuner est plus que limite... bref pas le bon plan du tout surtout vu le prix
Idéalement placé pour la visite de la ville ”
En adéquation avec la description Petit prix petits services
tres belles villes
Hôtel pas cher ”
Un bon hotel simple et pas cher”
Bon séjour, nous sommes arrivés et repartis tôt le lendemain matin. C'est vraiment un hotel pour dormir pas pour y passer du temps.
Als ich in Nizwa eintraf, war das Hotel eine Baustelle! Das Haus wird derzeit umgebaut und ist überhaupt nicht geöffnet! Zum Glück fand ich vor Ort einen Angestellten, der mich dann an ein Haus der gleichen Hotel-Gruppe verwies. Warum wird das Hotel online angeboten, wenn es gar nicht geöffnet hat??!? Ich hätte mir viel Fahrerei und Enttäuschung ersparen können :-(
Das Guest-House liegt wie alle Hotels in Nizwa ausserhalb der Stadt. Weil es an der Hauptstrasse liegt ist es jedoch gut erreichbar. Parkplätze sind vorhanden. Die Ausstattung war sehr arabisch, was Charme hat. Wobei die Betten für unseren Geschmack sehr hart waren. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber. Das WIFI hat funktioniert.
einfaches Haus für den Preis viel zu teuer”
Der Oman bietet mit seinen Wadis und der Natur einen Einblick wie es einmal war - ansonsten sehr moderne Bebauung gute Strassen auch sebst fahren kein Problem - freundliche Menschen gute med. Versorgung es fehlt an nichts - außer man will sich Abends zum Essen Alkohol bestellen. Nur in internationalen Hotels möglich
Gut , Personal sehr freundlich , ”
Personal hat uns einen sehr guten Tourenführer empfohlen ( auch günstig ) und so haben wir eine wunderschöne Tour gemacht .
sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit”
Preis/Leistung für eine Nacht in Nizwa ”
+Frühstücksbüffet, großer Kühlschrank, Parkplätze, 5 Autominuten zum Souk -Hotel in vielen Karten-Apps falsch positioniert
Das Guest House liegt gut erreichbar an einer Schnellstraße in Nizwa. Unser Zimmer war sauber, das Badezimmer sollte jedoch modernisiert werden. Die Angestellten waren hilfsbereit und sehr freundlich.”
Die Parkmöglichkeiten waren gut, der Frühstücksraum würde eine optische "Erfrischung" gut vertragen. Insgesamt gesehen war alles o.k. Danke!
Für eine Nacht ok - etwas weit außerhalb von Nizwa”
Ca. 7 min. mit dem Auto zum Zentrum von Nizwa.
abgewohnt aber freundlich”
Etwas lässig in der Sauberkeit.
Zu teuer für den Gegenwert”
Für eine Nacht ist es o.k. Aber sonst ist das Hotel doch ziemlich herunter gekommen
Sauber, gut zu finden an der Hauptstraße”
Non economico ma carino”
Staff molto gentile, la camera è abbastanza spartana e il bagno non molto spazioso. Posizionato sulla highway si raggiunge velocemente il centro città. Se volete mangiare bene dalla parte opposta della strada dopo il semaforo c'è un ristorante turco veramente ottimo. La colazione dell'hotel non è male. Un po' caro ma lo consiglio.
