Nice location, perfect atmosphere. But the first morning the toilet was leaking. We asked the staff to fix it, only to experience that nothing was done when we returned in the Evening. The morning after we politely asked again. When we returned in the afternoon, still no improvement had been done. We were moved to another room, that was very...

I chose the hotel because of its location, in one of the only parts of the city with local culture. It's right in the Souq with its many alleyways and shops as well as...

Nice rooms although identifying the light switches is a challenge. Clean rooms in general but there is mold on the wallpaper under the air con. The service is very clumsy and slow. The room had a cot in it and it wasn't collected for an hour.
