Nice Boutique Hotel In the Town Center

Location, Comfort, Design
Well As a starter, This is not your Average Hotel. They Do not have a dedicated Staff for Check in/Out. So it will be Hard for Guest who wanted to check in after 10pm & those who wanted to check out before 10am. This hotel is renovated from an Old Building & they do not Provide Free Parking for Guest. The design Of the room however is very Nice with Colourful art design. you will have a chance to stay in an Room where you still can feel Old Room & the Comfort of an modern Hotel. Each Room have its Own Balcony, However there is no view as the only view is the Opposite Building (Which is quite Near). Would suggest this Hotel to those who wanted a special Hotel with something Authentic. Its also a nice place for Photo Shooting (including Wedding Photography session).

A unique boutique hotel

This is hotel can indeed call itself a boutique hotel for its amazingly stylish and unique decoration: everything has been done beautifully and originally, which gives this hotel its uniquel appeal.
We enjoyed our stay there and felt well looked after, whenever we needed something. Dinner at the restaurant was fine with a fairly efficient but slightly inconsistent service ( very much up to the person serving you). Perfect location;central and, thus, very close to most interesting sites, the old, tiny alleys, the Art Heritage trail, the State Mosque, the train station, and more. The one criticism is the late breakfast serving time: not before 9 am and still the staff were not quite ready to serve, as chairs were still on top of some tables. Like most hotels, this one could have it at least from 8.30 am onwards.
