Slightly cheaper than hotels in town, but the save is not worth it. Dirt everywhere, really old, cracks in the walls. Bad heating control, etc. Poor breakfast buffet, decent coffe. sometimes you can get Wi-Fi. Location is convenient, some nice restaurants near by.

A simple hotel used by Algerians and the occasional foreigner. I'm a civil servant from a Western country and stayed here because it is quite close to my country's embassy. The immediate surroundings felt safe, perhaps somewhat more upscale than other areas, with quite a few restaurant options and stores around. I spent most of the week going to work... More
