Just had the pleasure of spending three nights at this hotel. Attentive staff, quiet and safe location. The hotel is located in the next block past the American Embassy. It's a safe place for an early morning walk or run. Restaurant is OK, but you will want to explore other options - other than breakfast. Will definitely stay there again.
