My ideal is somewhere reasonably central, comfortable and clean with private bathroom; where I can eat or meet fellow travellers to eat with (I've been advised that I shouldn't go out and eat alone); a place that's got some character and not too impersonal.
Both the Sultan and Al Majed have replied to my emails offering me accomodation. The Sultan sent a particularly nice email saying that they would ensure I got the first room available as I had been travelling so long. Which of these should I stay with - or perhaps somewhere else?
The Dar Al Yasmin looks wonderful - but I'm not sure of their prices
