This hotel is "meh" at best.
Cons: The bed is extraordinarily uncomfortable and the bathroom tile is in desperate need of a grout-scrubbing cleaning. There is a small bit of mold growing on the ceiling above my bed (which I am allergic to) and the internet is not included with the room charges. We have also paid for breakfasts, but don't even bother because the breakfast buffet is gross. There are gnats buzzing around the croissants constantly and the food is bland at best. There is not at all enough lighting in the rooms (but this is a minor inconvenience more than a problem).
Pros: The staff members are all very kind and helpful, I have not had a negative encounter with them at all. The sheets are always spotlessly clean and the blanket is amazingly cozy. The bath tub is also perfectly clean. It is in a very good location (a 10 minute walk from the corniche and a 20 minute walk from the Khalidiya mall) and there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants right around the corner. It is quiet at night and the view from my room (on the 15th floor) is very nice.
I would never choose to stay here again, but it isn't a completely miserable experience. So, meh.More
