Choose online from Booking.com comments and ratings and special weekend price. Location fine for Museum of Islamic Art and Souk, staff friendly and helpful, room clean and spacious. We also found the breakfast to be satisfactory.
We had same issues as mentioned by Greg B with soap holder in shower, handle in side of bath detached, plug in hand-basin didn't work. Expected from a 5 Star rated hotel (but didn't get) free Wifi, more than 2 towels, a hot water kettle and a good range of TV channels. Finishing in room very ordinary. Bedside alarm in room next door woke us at 12.15 am. Remedied following phone to reception but happened again on second night! Site invites you to sit and have a drink but doesn't say that Hotel is 'dry'. Also advertises massage service but this is only available for men.
Hotel is value for money and well sited but don't expect too much - definitely not 5 Star.
PS have a map for the taxi driver as most don't know where it is.
