I stayed 3 nights at Ibis Al Rigga, at the end of May, 2013. It was a very good staying, much better than the 2 stars announced for the hotel.
The hotel neighbourhood seems a bit old, but the hotel is very clean and seems quite new. The room is very comfortable and cozy. The staff was very helpfull and kind.
I would only mention two not so good things about the hotel. First, there was no wifi connection in the room, despite it was announced on the web. Second, despite being close to the subway station (3 or so minute walk), by sunset the hotel street gets full of (what it seems) prostitutes. Where I live, I wouldn't suggest those places for families travelling together. So, we got a bit concerned when we realized that. But we didn't get threatened in anyways.
In general, it was a very pleasant stay.
