My wife and I have just spent 5 nights at this hotel, situated off a main road in a quiet location. It is about 15 minutes walk to the Night Market and about 20 minutes to the Main gate leading to the Inner (Old) City. Tut tut rides were very inexpensive to almost anywhere, although be prepared to bargain.
We were upgraded to a room on the 16th. floor on arrival. Very comfortable room overlloking the back of the hotel. No noise at all.
All the staff, no matter where they were working, were very polite, courteous and helpful. Nohing was too much trouble.
The buffet breakfast was sufficient to please all nationalities. Because we had booked 5 nights we were given a complimentary dinner on our second night, which was unexpected and a lovely surprise.
Overall, I can honestly rate this hotel as excellent and I would stay there again.

The service was excellent and our deluxe room was nice. Breakfast was also o.k. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. The only disadvantage is that its quite far from the old town and therefore its a bit too pricey. It's 30-40mins walking distance to the old city. Next Time we'll go to one of the guesthouses or hostels closer to the old city as the hotel doesn't provide free shuttle service.

Well worth your money. It's pretty cheap so you can't expect flashy things but the rooms were clean and best of all was the staff. All friendly, very polite and like others we got small gifts everyday from the staff. Makes you feel like a king.

Breakfast was decent with enough choice. Tourists were from everywhere, the Middle East but also fellow countrymen who no doubt also liked the prices lol

It's also close to the Night market which is ideal
