This hotel is really well located between the old town/souq area and Jdeda where there are nice restaurants and old streets for wandering around. It is only a short walk to each. The hotel is on the upper floors of a block of shops so you just have an entrance and a lift from the street and everything else is upstairs. The rooms are really nice, decorated in Arabian style, spacious, comfortable beds, decent bathrooms and everything new and clean. The rooms are quite plush and seem like they belong in a more luxurious and expensive hotel. Breakfast is ok but nothing special. There was one strange thing with the hotel staff in that they asked for our passports on check-in to make a photocopy and said they would return it later. I went back the next morning to get them and the receptionist said we could not get them back unless we paid a "deposit". She said it was hotel policy to hold on to guest passports unless they had paid a "deposit" and then asked for payment in advance for the room. I was confused as I had given my credit card details to make the reservation on the hotel website. It turned out (after much confusion) that as they had not actually charged the card they wanted some kind of guarantee. I said that hotels normally block your card on arrival for this purpose rather asking for payment upfront and the recepetionist only then agreed to block an amount on my card. However when she tried to do this it did not go through and she insisted it was due to a problem with my card and asked for cash. I was not happy to pay in advance and made a bit of a fuss about the passport issue as I was really unhappy that the receptionist at check-in had not mentioned anything about deposits or payment and had just said she needed the passports to make a copy. She did not ask for a credit card which is what normally happens when you check in to a hotel. We left a credit card number with them and they returned the passports. When we checked out we paid with the same card which had nothing wrong with it. It was all a bit strange but we were not happy about them trying to hold on to our passports and especially as they were not honest about it.
On the plus side, we complained to reception one night about some contruction work being done in the middle of the night (yes really) outisde our window which was REALLY noisy and the next day they moved us to a quieter room which was also a higher category room with a huge bathroom with whirlpool bath. That was very nice of them.
I would definitely stay here again.
