A basic budget hotel which lives up the expectation of one - don't come here expecting the Ritz for what you paid. Rooms clean, breakfast basic but adequate, staff friendly good parking and no issues with the hotel.

From what I gather, Oman is expensive when it comes to accommodation so this was considered a good budget hotel.

Wifi decent and relatively fast.

Probably only drawback was lack of electrical sockets but we found one working so no major issue.

If you are planing a one day visit to Nizwa this place is perfect. It's old but reasonably clean. Rooms are big toilet is huge. Free wifi is very good speed. This place close to city may be a 20 minutes walk you will reach the heart of the city. There is a fast food joint next door. I will recommend this place please don't keep too high expectations. Staffs are very friendly.

This was our second time staying at the Majan Guest House and except for the major road development right outside the hotel (took a couple of goes to work out how to get onto the service road, trying to miss the diggers!) nothing much had changed!
Very friendly staff, wifi, clean rooms - we had booked the 2 bedroom family rooms which are very spacious (kitchen could do with a major clean though). Breakfast had definitely improved, however still lacked a few more options. We loved the breakfast man who went out of his way to help and serve tea and make toast for our girls.
Yes it's a bit out of town and until the road is finished, 1 1/2 years so far, it's a nightmare for traffic queues, it's still the best option if you don't want to spend many many rials on the Golden Tulip!
We love the fact there is still a small mud brick tower next door hidden under the trees, well until they demolish it with all the modernisation of Nizwa that is going on.

This hotel is average. There is nothing particularly spectacular, nor interesting about it. The restaurant is OK. The breakfast is OK. The room is OK.
You need a car to see Nizwa. As other reviewers have said. It is nearly impossible to get a taxi on the main street in front of this hotel. It is also VERY far from the souk and other sites. Unless you are interesting in mountain trekking, Nizwa is only worth a day trip from Oman.

The rooms are nice and clean, free wifi, beds comfortable, spacious.
Breakfast very poor! Coffee horrible and the rest... just some toast with marmelade and butter.
For the moment there are works on the road, so not easy to access but should be fine shortly.
10min ride to city centre, no problem to find a parking spot.
As there aren't many accomodations in Nizwa it is a place worth staying at!
