Michael, the guy at Bell desk was very helpful and professional. Rooms are very spacious and well appointed. The problems I faced was the wifi. They charge you for Wifi even in public areas... More

I have small yet important complaints that can be improved for better image: 1- Internet was not available free of charge - upon inquiry we were told by reception of 84 dirhams per device per night which was disaster as we had 4 devices. The wifi cost should be adjusted in the room price even if you increase the price... More

We were actually booked on a Saturday but arrived on Friday. We tried to check in at about midnight. The Frontdesk Manager pointed out to us that we were one day early. Nonetheless, he checked us in without any hassle. We only stayed one night. The room was small but everything was fine. We would stay at the hotel again... More

Good first impression, accessible location, pleasant staff (especially at the concierge and coffee shop) and the reception was most accommodating of both routine and special requests. Perhaps I would advise better response to emails because customers rely on your prompt responses to plan their travels. I recommend having free wifi and to ensure bath tub is spotless for the guest.... More

Stayed here for 15 days. Very neat hotel with very very friendly staff. Food in restaurant was good. Did not eat at the Chinese though. Room service is excellent, just think the portions are a bit big. All in all a great stay. One low point though is that there is an Indian bar/ night club which plays loud music... More
