Where to stay in Nizwa

Nizwa has relatively few accommodations to offer its guests, drawn to the historical core of the former capital. The relative lack of tourist infrastructure may well be what's keeping the traditional feel of the city center alive. A couple of standard hotels can be found in the center, and a few more in the towns to the north and south along Highway 21. The capital, Muscat, lies about an hour and a half's drive to the north-east along a good quality highway. Most visitors simply visit Nizwa during a day trip from the capital.
