A fairly decent hotel situated in th heart of the commercial area and close to the train station and straight road to the old city, which takes around 25 minutes to walk to. I was reasonably content that at least it had free WIFi availability, even if is just limited to the foyer area.
The rooms offer limited satellite TV including a BBC world news and a movie channel along with a host of Arabic channels. The en-suite bathroom was reasonably decent with a tap operated shower, with a daily change of towels, although they were a little worn out. The room was kept clean by the ladies who provided a daily going over. The real serious gripe I had was with the beds which really past it and gave me some backache every morning.
But unfortunately the rooms and corridors do feel very lifeless due to the dull decor, infact the whole hotel could do with a fresh lick of paint and bit of general sprucing up.
A decent buffet breakfast is provided with a reasonable choice of bakery products. the chef will cook up an omelet on request, which was very tasty with the crepes or the flat bread. However it had no cereal during my stay which I found very disappointing. The evening meal consisted a choice from set menu with standard 3 course meal. During our stay we tried the soups, chicken, kebabs and spaghetti all had the same dull microwaved taste. The sweet dish consisted of a choice of gateaux, flan or the chefs choice, which we discovered to be a bowl of fruit.
The hotel reception staff are initially overtly friendly and helpful until they suss out how much you will be spending on their in-house excursions and gift shop and then they become quite robotic.
Overall I had a pleasant stay of 4 nights, considering the cost, and it would be the only reason that would compel me to return.
