We were booked onto the Hotel Hayat as part of a package tour. Location was only a 5 minute walk from the main attractions in the old city.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the common areas were generally neat and clean, although some touch-up painting would improve the overall appearance. Wifi reception was strong in most areas of the hotel. The breakfast was simple, but adequate; however, the coffee was quite weak and we ended up ordering cappuccinos instead.
Ours was a corner room (603) on the second floor. It was an odd-shaped room, sort of triangular, and it contained a double bed that was comfortable enugh and a single that we had to use as a place for our bags. There was a large wardrobe with only a few hangers, small tv with English channels, no aircon or ceiling fans. Again, some paint would be in order to improve the appearance. Bed comforters seemed clean, but with a few set in stains.
The bathroom was tiny and poorly illuminated. There was a crack in the sink which allowed water to spill onto the floor, the shower did not drain well and also had a good deal of mildew around the base. The 1970's era, white towels were threadbare and torn on edges.
Since the hotel was fully booked and we were with a small group we did not press for a different room. Although this was not the nicest hotel we've stayed in, it was far from the worst. Overall, it was an OK place in a convenient location.
