Bonjour Oui, le propriétaire très très sympa dont j’ai oublié le nom est à la réception toute la nuit (il dort sur place). Aucun problème donc si vous arrivez dans la nuit.

"Just book it"
"The manager, Odeh, is well known in tours etc. talk to him for ideas and trips"
"The two different rooms I stayed in on arrival at the start of my trip and on departure, both very quiet and comfortable."
"there is no lift - so if you do not like the stairs ask for lower floor rooms"
"Ask to be upstairs to get some sort of view as it was dour downstairs."
$42 - $56 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
