We stayed in the Rotana for 6 nights and found it to be excellent. It's a little expensive, but the rooms are huge - both of our rooms had separate living rooms and bedrooms. The standard of the rooms was very high too, with a very good finish.
We found the staff to be excellent - extremely helpful and prompt - room service was quick, which is really unusual anywhere these days........
We had one problem when the toilet got blocked, but they changed us to another room without any fuss.
The one disadvantage of the hotel is its location - it's outside the centre of town and you need to take a taxi in and out to the centre of the city. However taxis are cheap - we would highly recommend Star Taxis (who can be called by just dialling 9207) whom we found to be very reliable. They're a private company and have higher standard vehicles than normal taxis. The drivers speak English and always turn the meter on - unlike the guys in the yellow cabs - you take your chances with them............
One good tip - get the hotel to write the directions to the hotel in Arabic for you to give to taxi drivers if you don't use Star Taxis - the yellow cab guys often have no idea where it is.
