I arrived at the Ziad at 9.20pm one June evening without reservation and was quoted
S£1700 for a twin-room for one person B&B. I thought it a little pricey but given the lack of knowledge about the hotel scene around the area – there are a few but I couldn’t be bothered to go round to all of them with my luggage to check out the prices that late in the evening, I settled for the Ziad after inspecting one of the rooms.
It’s a good choice – clean, well-located, with all the amenities that is required for an overnight stay. The air-con worked – but you have to request to have it turned on and off via the command centre (reception), and cable TV was plentiful. No internet which is fine. More problematic though was the lack of hot water – it was worse than lukewarm even in the morning, and the breakfast was rubbish. Staff were also slightly standoffish.
However, if it’s for one night only, it’s more than bearable; it could have been a lot worse.
