The Hotel is located in the most touristy place possible and every other place is easily accessible from here. The staff especially Mr. Salem and Mr. Irfan made the whole stay worthwhile with their warm welcome and ever to help attitude. A meal at the restaurant is not to be missed! The chef knows his stuff.
