I front of bus stop area. Easy access from airport.
Good: Easy access to airport and port. Bus stop(terminal) is in front of the hotel. Breakfast buffet was good. Seven-eleven is very close. Shopping malls and markets are everywhere within walking distance. Free water bottles everyday. Room was clean. Bad: Room was small for two people but it was only for short stay so didn't mind it much anyways. card reissue fee 20RD.

Below expectations
There are better options nearby there with similar price. Location wise it was convenient.. From outside it looks pretty good, but inside, basic stuff had lots of problems. Toilet was not able to flush (had to call maintenance to fix it), bathroom area water can't clear and got flooded, the floor and carpet felt dirty and the room had terrible musky smell.. Luckily we just use it for a quick sleepover before we fly off, but I rather stay at other nearby hotels.
