Well firstly, this is an older hotel. There are tons of newer hotels going up all over Irbil, but they are not in town. We were able to comfortably walk from town to this hotel, which is a plus. The rooms...well okay, they are dated. It can also be a bit noisy if they place you on the first floor or if you end up in a room which is facing one of the generators. The other factor is cost, it is expensive I think. A single was about $134 and a double $198 if I am remembering it correctly; whatever the case, it is close to that figure. the amenities are fine, the room a bit small but otherwise okay. The really pleasant part was the restaurant though. the food was really very, very good. and if you are a vegetarian, you will be in heaven as they do a wonderful salad spread. There is a small bar, alcohol is served and I felt very much like this was a local place. There is internet, which worked fine. The staff were very nice and one in particular spoke brilliant English. Again, if you want really new, then this might not be for you, but I did (in the end) like the hotel. You need to be careful and choose your room wisely (try to get above the 1st floor and not near elevator).
