You will probably have already read about the service received at the hotel. It really is 5 star. The owners were away on holiday but left the hotel in good hands. Beyond what is said elsewhere it is probably only worth mentioning that we came home at midnight most nights and were always met by the night porter outside to be escorted through the final 20 yards of alley. It seems the taxi driver ( the Omar guy you will have read about) calls ahead. A really nice touch.
The hotel interior is very nicely designed, balancing modern and traditional very well, someone here has a real flair for design. Rooms have some nice features albeit they cannot easily be described as 'all mod cons' as they lack tv, balcony, window and bath, not that you will notice. The one real negative is that sound, from the common areas and other rooms, carries in this hotel. Nothing ear plugs wouldn't fix though.
Didn't have an evening meal but the breakfast was fine and the terrace on which you eat was lovely.
If you want a base from which to explore this is the hotel for you, the location and service make it perfect. Any limitations in the hotel itself are more than made up for by the friendliness of the staff and the atmosphere created.
Note though, you might want to print a map of the old city at home to take with you, the riad Elizabeth doesn't provide the same quality of map as its competitors.
Very happy with this hotel.
