My tip stay in the Hill Wing, on the side away from the Mosque (the morning call to prayer seems to get louder every year) and you should have a peaceful sleep. I have never stayed in the beach side wing because it's too near to the noisy road, and more expensive. The Hill Wing can be accessed by a...
