I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The room was huge and had everything I needed. I found all the staff friendly and helpful. I could walk and catch the bus to all the sights I wanted to see. I did have the hot water problem that others had mentioned (I was on the 8th floor) - lukewarm on...

I stayed for a night in this hotel. The standard room is huge compared to a standard room in other hotels. It was spacious and has got decent amenities. But the bad experience was no hot water running in the bathroom. I told this the reception and got a maintenance man who just let the water running for minutes. I...

I stayed here for 1 night in April. Our room was massive and very comfortable. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and although our voucher said that check in time was 2pm we were given our room by 10.30am. The hotel is only a 10 minutes walk to the market where there are a few restaurants and our...

The rooms are massive. Even the standard ones. The bathroom is big too. There wernt many English channels on the TV but that's not too much of a problem to be honest. Bit disappointed at the reception staff; slightly moody and hostile at times. Also keep in mind that taxi drivers often don't know where this hotel is located so...

I booked a king size bed room with them but was allocated a twin bed room. They claimed no more rooms were available. Quite disappointing as why accept a booking if no rooms are available? Otherwise it's well located and spacious!

This hotel is very nice! The room was huge!!! The staff were friendly and the hotel is a convenient walk to the souk and other attractions. There is a pool but we didn't use it.
