Not bad for a budget hotel, and recommended, but you have to assert yourself.... On the good side, the hotel is in a convenient location not far from Paris Circle, the Fine Arts Gallery and a great restaurant Canvass - plus the Abdullah Mosque and even Downtown - lots in walking distance. Very quiet location. Second, Sam, the desk clerk, was really wonderful and personable. He gave me great suggestions, directions, let me check-out late so I didn't have to lug my bags, arranged a cab to the airport and made sure that I didn't leave without breakfast or without a big bottle of water for the airport. Great service. However, on arrival the first day, I was put in a room that essentially had a broken wooden frame on the door - it would take only a good shove to break the lock. I was a woman travelling alone, and while the hotel felt safe enough, I didn't feel this was a good idea. On being switched, I was put in a smoking room although I asked for the non-smoking one. There, the bed linens appeared very raggedy, so it was hard to tell if they were actually clean (I think they were) and were really thin - not good covering for the chilly night. There was a funky smell in the bathroom (slight - maybe a sewage problem on site or mold), too. Lots of coming and going early in the morning past the door before 6am, but not hugely noticeable. Breakfast was Ok - plain omlette and some bread that was a bit stale, but lots of jams, cheese etc., nescafe - pretty simple, but outdoors on the terrace and brought to me. The inside eating area and lounge is a smoking area, and the floor does smell of it. So, not sure how to rate this entirely - it wasn't a bad experience, not the best, but the price was quite good at about 30.00 US for the night. If I wanted to save a dollar, I would probably go there again.
