A very nice modern comfortable hotel a little removed from the hustle and bustle of Erbil, which can be viewed as good or bad. Security is quite serious around the hotel, which is surrounded by high cement barriers which may not be ascetically pleasing, but effective. Hotel room was excellent, comfortable bed, good pillows. Nice bathroom. Very quiet with views...

The staff are wonderful, the hotel is nice, but it's quite expensive. It doesn't include breakfast either. So if you don't mind paying, or someone else is, enjoy. I've had some nice meals there and recommend the afternoon lunch buffet.

There are some excellent hotels and restaurants in Erbil and the Rotana is probably the best. The food is quite expensive but the décor is beautiful and reminds me of a bygone age. The service is second to none. The buffet on Thursday night should not be missed. There is also live music on the ground floor.
