We stayed at the Hotel Safir for 2 nights in September 2012. They arranged a cab to pick us up at the airport (15 euros). When we arrived at the hotel, it was up a little side street, with a sign pointing up a walk way.....made us a bit anxious. But once, walking the 30 metres maybe to the hotel entrance our anxiety all went away. Hotel has been completely redone. Modern lobby, and breakfast room, and the room we stayed in was great - great shower, great bed, TV etc. Service was absolutely excellent - couldn't ask for more. Breakfast was average....but met our needs. Room was quiet, and very, very comfortable. Shower and bathroom were excellent. Very safe. Excellent location near old city. Would stay here again, and would recommend that anyone else stay here.
