Best value for money,stayed 9 days here @ £30 a night
Reception staff very helpful especially jan who starts work after 6pm
Breakfast was nice and room service too
Very close to many attractions
City centre mall 12 riyals on taxi bit make sure you ask driver to turn the meter on
Souq waqif only 7-8 minutes walk
Ramada junction for fast food restaurants only 10 riyals ( less than 2 quid) on taxi or 45 minutes walk if some one fancy
Try to get some taxi driver phone number as I found it very convenient to ring up half an hour before.
Got a number if some wants it for 40 riyals per hour for a private car with driver , good idea to hire for 3 hours for sight seeing. But please be aware that they are not registered taxi for insurance purpose but I took the risk, minimum booking is for an hour.
Hotel itself was good value for money, I stayed in room 206 and Internet connection (wireless) was reasonable but I used Ethernet also.
Domestic staff comes around 11am to clean the rooms and breakfast is between 6.30 - 10.30
Cam have fried egg or omelette on request.I also saw some one asking and getting hot milk. The guy in breakfast room was also very friendly.
Also want to mention michael on day time reception very helpful and friendly
Guys at this price the hotel is great but if you want 5 star then expect to pay the premium price at some hotels near west bay
Hope this review will help other travellers , this review is for la villa hotel not for palace or apartments
Takes 10 minutes and 28 riyals from airport (Karwa taxi)
Many thanks for reading.
