Stayed at Caliph for around courtesy my company. First thing one needs to know is that the hotel recently had a shift in ownership and management. Which means that there were minor issues to be found. I got a room on the second floor. The room was neat, comfortable and well furnished. During my stay I had access to both... More

The rooms are nice and spacious enough, the aircon works very well and the complimentary Wifi... More

Cleanliness: very bad, the housekeeping staff are incompetent. They don't clean thoroughly, just pass a mop on the visible floor not bothering to clean corners where dirt accumulates. I have... More
