I stayed in Babil Hotel for 1 week, unfortunately I payed before my arrival and I couldn't ask for refund. But now you know that "There are many better hotels with same price!", so just pick another one. Babih hotel has contract with several low quality travel agencies and it will get enough amount of customers. All those tours are... More

You are looking to that hotel? I suggest that immediately you look aside. I will do a quick facts and figures session. The personnel does not speak English. Some of the rooms do not have windows. The accommodation is announced at 14:00 but we got it 1 hour later after waiting from 8 in the morning. The room is 2... More

This is hotel you should never visit. I don't recommend to even be in that part of town, it is really dirty. Main word is 'Cargo transport', so you understand what part of town it is. Hotel is old, dirty and rusty. We were lucky to get clean sheets but bathroom was so dirty although usable. Also there are cockroaches... More

This has the be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Firstly, the man at reception didn't even bother greeting me when I arrived, he was rude and seemed to not care about his job at all. Furthermore he was chewing gum and smoking at the reception desk! Then, in my room I discovered a cigarrette burn in my... More

It was the worst experience i have ever had in a hotel. The place is horrible right form the entrance where a disgusting urine smell comes from the bathroom. The rooms are a nightmare: dirty sheets, old furniture, bad smell, mold in the bathrooms and garbage in the bin. Breakfast was poor, we didn't have many options to choose from.... More
