It's 1am in the morning here at the InterCon in Muscat and they are driving piles at the building site next door. The InterCon management appear to be powerless to stop the noise. Will call the Royal Omani Police and see if I can get it stopped. Don't come to this hotel if you are looking to sleep and want...

I stayed in this hotel recently, the service was prompt and personable, I felt that the staff were accommodating and friendly, however this hotel is in need of a major revamp.

For a very expensive InterContinental Hotel, this is a major disappointment.
