30 minute walk to the souks, not 10/20 as they have mentioned! the hotel itself is a bit out of date, but for the price we could not complain. staff were friendly, cleaners clean the room everyday, there was only one remote to share for the AC for the whole hotel! for your t.v remote you have to ask the reception for one.
BREAKFAST....where do I start from!!!! 1 piece of bread, 1 dried chocolate croissant, 1 small sachet of butter and 1 small sachet of apricot jam...if you feel brave then ONLY ask for extra butter or jam, if looks could kill, me and my partner would have been dead over and over again!!
1 small glass of orange juice, and either tea or coffee, that is what we got during the full stay of our holiday for breakfast.
We bought coffee from outside to take to our room, I got shouted at for not using their restaurant downstairs. The lift can JUST ABOUT fit 2 people and 1 suitcase. The water temperature in the room was good. The wall socket (1) in the room was hanging loose. The bedding was OK.
To have the heating on or off you have to ring reception. They took our passport off us and left them behind the desk, on few occasions we walked in and the reception desk was unattended, we had no choice but to ask for our passports back.
If you were using the stairs to go up you have to switch the lights on yourself. The balcony doors had no locks on them. Nothing went missing from our room though.
No unexpected guests was seen (ants, cockroaches,). No hairdryers in the room, and no pool in the hotel!!
There was only 1 lift in the whole hotel. Overall we would rate this hotel 5/10, as mentioned in our title above YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!
