i stayed 2 nights in a double room (single use) in march 2014 and then came back for 1 more night a week later. the room was spacious and decorated in harmonious colors with a female touch. i had a large comfortabel bed with clean blankets and bedsheets. it had a balcony from which i saw the greek church. the ac could be used for heating. wifi is well working in the lobby and the room. the staff was very friendly and generouse with me. complimentary breakfast was served in a small breakfast room after 8.30 am. the hotel is located a 10 minute walk away from the corniche. when you arrive by taxi the building doesnt look like the picture of the white building shown on booking.com. the entrance is not clearly marked for the hotel (or maybe in arabic only). take the entrance with the sign of “solex“ and go to the first floor where the reception is located and friendly staff is waiting for you.
