we had a superior room booked at this hotel for mid july 08.
our suggestion is that you stay at this hotel if you wish for some flavour of middle east life as the descendant of arabian traders live in this area. otherwise this is rather old part of the city.
the main problem we had with the hotel was the room. there was a horrible noise emitting from the service pipes ( as if some heavy metal object was falling down ). the staff could not change our room as the hotel was fully booked but this noice at intermittent times kept us awake throughout the night.
early in the morning be prepared to cope with the prayer call which is broadcast on speakers.
the room itself is reasonably sized but the bathroom is totally outdated. the bottom end of the bathroom door and the lower part of the frame holding the door have rotted off. there was a horrible smell ( associated with unclean public toilets ). the shower curtains wre missing which made the entire bathroom wet and slippery.
the tariff includes breakfast which was exceptionally spartan- some fried rice, bread with jam and margarine ( no butter) and beverage. there were no cereals or fruits.
the tariff is cheap but it is difinitely not worth the money.
Unique Quality: middle east life flavour.some reasonably good eateries.
