Stayed here for three nights. Amazing authentic islamic architecture, full of antiques and with a fab roof terrace over the old city. Brilliant location on the edge of the old city, in the christian quarter so livlier with bars and resteraunts. Staff lovely, and good yummy breakfasts. Our room was full of character but quite small, and the bathroom the same. A great place for a romantic few days but might get tiring with a longer stay. Saying that, sitting on the roof terrace with a glass of wine listening to the call to prayer from the surrounding mosques in the evening was amazing...
