Me and my family stayed at this hotel in August of last year. When we arrived by taxi we discovered that the hotel isn't directly on the street but inside an ally-like corner. We walked in an almost immediately checked in to our rooms. We will admit that we were really surprised when we saw the rooms, maybe we're just not used to it but the rooms were deathly small; and they contained no mini bar and no safe. My bigger problem was that there was not enough closet space to hang and put your clothes. I was in a double room with my sister and we ended up having to put our clothes in the floor and under the desk. There wasn't room service, and we came to a realization as to these several amenities were not provided; it was a holiday inn 'EXPRESS' so a safe is apparently a luxury thing. Th lovely things about the rooms were that they were so incredibly clean, and that although there wasn't much of a view, way in the distance there was a train passing by every now and then which for me and my family was very enjoyable. The breakfast at this hotel is complementary which is very nice, but the variety is terrible. Being an American jordanian I became accustomed to big breakfasts and huge variety. The breakfast was a standard English breakfast of beans, toast, eggs, cheese, muffins and sausage. My complaint about the breakfast is that after a few day of staying here it becomes very, very dull. And it wouldn't hurt if you switch up the type of cheese every two days of so, it was the same cheese every single day with no other alternative. The location of the hotel is absolutely amazing, it's situated in a lovely street filled with shops for everything! It's even got banks. At the far end of the street, about a 5 minute walk there's the metro which is very convenient.
We did enjoy our stay very much despite these little details. If you're looking for a good hotel and are on a tight budget then the hotel is great, just don't expect luxury, because in the end you get what you pay for.
