Overall a pleasant expereince and we would return
The service at the hotel was outstanding - from check-in to check-out. Perhaps it was because we were there during the slowest time (summer) so I think that made the service much more personal. Despite the fact our flight arrival time was delayed from 12am unitl 2am we still found our hotel transport waiting there for us. Nice clean car and the drive was at a pleasant speed, Close proximately to airport (only 5min).
The staff were friendly and helpful - several times we requested additional water because we were fasting and they prompty responded.
Internet was fast, free and reliable.
No alcoholic beverages inside the room, but certainly during Ramadan more water needs to be available in the room.
Spacious bathroom with not only a bath but 2 showers, Bidet was a bonus - a contraption that I learnt to enjoy to use.
Food presentation (room service) was simple but elegant, However, we only recieved the arranged sahoor on the first night and then it was not brought the following nights even though we had organised it at check-in.
The size of the room was generous and spacious with a good view although the windows needed to be cleaned. We noticed a connecting door to another room which would be great for a large family - but the noise from the other room was too loud, not only hearing the Television but someone snoring!
Good location with a mosque near by. Close proximity to the Islamic Museum and Fanaar Islamic Centre as well as the famous soq and corniniche.
The hotel smell was very pleasant, Arabian ouud - no lingering cigarette smells that we had become accustom to in other hotels
Traditional majlis in the reception area, professional gym and swimming pool - opening hours could be modified -10am being a late start.
Overall a pleasant expereince and we would return to the Swiss-Belhotel in the future.
A special thanks for Ms Antoinette V. Concepcion, for her assistance and help arranging the booking and airport transfer.
