Location, location, location, and the price is right. There were no $50 rooms available, I was told, but hotel did not seem at all booked, and since it was approx the same price for booking a single in nearby hostel, it seemed ok. This hotel has seen way better times, and could really use a good cleaning--for instance, I know pigeons poop, but there is no reason to leave it on the tiny window balcony, unless you're in the guano business. I'm used to less than Hotel 6 Formica cleanliness, but the balcony and bathroom could have/should have been much better.
What everyone says about the breakfasts is true, get there early or do without. Each day there was something not there that was there the day before, one day no eggs, next no halvah, next no olives. There was always milk and cornflakes, if that's what you eat.
The proprietor is old world courtly, and walking down that wonderful staircase, I almost expected to greet Freya Stark, or possibly General Allenby. This hotel has a definite charm, but not as good as it should be.
