This is scariest hotel I've ever experienced.The cheap price is not worth the stay It is beyond my imaginationworst ever! The room is so small and dirty.The service is terrible: no water, nothing in the room. You can't sleep at night because it is too noisy outside.

I read the comments of other visitors to this hotel and I can agree with most of written stuff. Yes, staff don`t know English very well, I've been in better rooms in some of hostels, BUT!! Lets be real for a moment! I need hotel or rather bed just to oversleep, and in the morning...let`s go. So, this hotel, for... More

I was really bad. I spent 4 night there, there is no wifi in the rooms, the place is dangerous and it is not safe to go out during night, the only good thing was the brakfast area, on the roof but if not raining never recommend it

Its better to sleep on the road than to spend time at this hotel. Extremely disappointed. The receptionist behaves very rudely as if we are staying for free. The street has indecent crowd which made it very uncomfortable to cross. The rooms were beyond awful. Mattresses were so dirty. There were cockroaches in the room and inside the dysfunctional fridge.... More

But now you know that "There are many better hotels with same price!", so just pick another one. Babih hotel has contract with several low quality travel agencies and it will get enough amount of customers. All those tours are... More
