Its better to sleep on the road than to spend time at this hotel. Extremely disappointed. The receptionist behaves very rudely as if we are staying for free. The street has indecent crowd which made it very uncomfortable to cross. The rooms were beyond awful. Mattresses were so dirty. There were cockroaches in the room and inside the dysfunctional fridge.... More

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

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
