Free WiFi across the hotel. Stayed in Palace room. The room was of a decent size but they had two single beds joined together instead of a queen sized bed - makes it very uncomfortable. The room had no natural light - a major negative. The temperature control is ancient where I could only control the fan speed - it... More

This hotel is located in the city center and that is one the best features of this place. This place is located in the complex of the royal palace and so is conveniently located close to the royal palace, museum and the lake. The hotel itself is old and the rooms show its age.

This is a rare gem property in the desert state and very nicely built hotel. It is beautifully built and maintained nicely. The rooms are good and Cleaned. House keeping is attentive and service staff with quality. Experience of positive energy from mangers enhances the values. Overall a very nice place to stay. Keep up the good work.
