Like others have noted this is hotel is an oasis of calm in an interesting and beautiful city. My daughter and I made use of the spa. Although more expensive than other places, this was a highlight for me of staying at Yasmeen. It was amazing how the renovation of the olive stores/caves has been made into an atmospheric spa. My daughter didn't like the hamman experience but I would have one again if I could! The only negative for us was due to the cold we couldn't have breakfast in the courtyard.
