4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

My wife and I just spent three nights at the City Suite hotel and enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers have said, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious (a junior suite) and the location was a two minute walk to pidgeon rocks. The hotel is also reasonably close to the airport. Though the room had a kitchenette there was nothing to allow to you cook or warm up food. No microwave, no coffee maker, etc. There are a couple of nice restaurants nearby but generally you would need to get in a taxi to reach the bars and restaurants downtown. The wifi was free in the lobby but very slow, though we were told this was a city wide issue. As others have said, the breakfast is basic but it does the job and as it's included in the price, you can't really complain.

Overall, this is a welcoming hotel that provides a decent room and pleasant service.

Room Tip: The nearby Petit Cafe is a popular restaurant but the one next door to the left (Bay View?) is bette...

Sumary:
Hotel City Suite is a very nice and pleasant hotel, which we can recommend 100%.

Location:
The location is good. Close to the city centre and not very noisy. Near the hotel you find a well equipped supermarket, pharmacy, some small shops and a variety of restaurants. From the hotel it is also very fast to go the various places by taxi.

Rooms:
The rooms are large and very nice. They are well equipped and you will not miss anything. The bathroom with a shower was a little bit small, but still ok. Everything is clean.

Staff:
All staff and management are very friendly and helpfull. They do their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Joyce at the reception made an excellent job in arranging the trips to the countryside With some staff it was sometimes a little bit difficult to communicate either in English or French, as we don’t speak Arab. In general, they are doing a very good job!

Food and Drink:
We only had breakfast and some drinks at the bar. It’s nice to wake up and to know that you will soon have a nice breakfast with an excellent American coffee. The offered juices are very sweet and not what we like, as we prefer natural flavours. We although could not understand why sometimes certain drinks were not available at the bar, even the shop next door sold them. Here we recommend management to have a better planning in order to improve the service.

Internet:
The good thinks was, that internet in the lobby was for free. The bad thing was, that the connection to the router was good, however the connection to the outside was slow.

The hotel offers good value for money. The location is within a 2-minute walk to Le Petit Cafe and the Pigeon Rocks. The rooms were clean, although the basic rooms are VERY SMALL and have an 80's sort of vibe. Breakfast was good, staff was also good. Good choice if you are looking for a no-frills, value for money option with a location that makes it easy to access the top sites.
