I recently stayed at the Sarnic Hotel. I thought I'd booked a room at the Sarnic Premier, a sister property that's connected to the Sarnic Hotel. The hotels share a lobby and staff, but the rooms in the Sarnic Premier look nicer (my friend was in the Premier).
The price was right, and as others have said, the location is spectacular. Walking distance to all the key sites and countless shops and restaurants. It's true that the morning prayers make noise, but that comes with the territory. The hotel offers an airport pick-up service for a reasonable price, which I used both ways. The staff were very friendly, and helpful in giving advice on what to see and do.
On the other hand, the room itself was unimpressive. My biggest complaint is with the mattress - I usually have no issues with hotel beds (I frequently stay in 3-star U.S. hotels), but the Sarnic Hotel's mattress was rock hard. The room was otherwise acceptable, albeit fairly small. The shower had great pressure, but seemed to be running short on hot water one morning at 9am. The free breakfast was quite basic; perhaps better than a typical American continental breakfast, but not by much.
