Nice place
Hotel is stunning inside and out. Very excited about the fact the restaurant was halaal. A decent breakfast provided, very tasty. Restaurant service great, although waiters kept asking us to tip them in cash as they had to wait 6 months to receive tip if it was included in our card payment. Wasnt impressed by this. Beds were very small, and not many rooms offer bigger. Overall the stay was good, thank you

Dated, musty and not a very friendly service.
Location and breakfast.
This hotel looks great on the outside and is perfectly located for leisure guests. Inside was a different matter, there is a musty smell and the décor makes the rooms to feel very small. The reception staff was friendly when I arrived but I had never been as disrespected as I was by the door men (security). I wanted to see the manager about cancelling the rest of my stay but was told that he cannot be reached and I just had to deal with it. I will not be going back there. For the same amount, in the same area I have stayed at larger, cleaner and modern hotels where the staff was always courteous.
