Overall its a v nice place and appeared better than those in the area. It looks and feels like a business hotel. Our room was nice, large double bed, well equipped bathroom and good WiFi The location is great with an excellent bar opposite and nice restaurants 5 mins walk. Promenade is 20 mins walk. I would recommend.
Staff were OK but not friendly. They were not rude but just dour. The room was lovely but overlooked a residential block so had to keep curtains closed
Beds are comfortable
- Different exchange rate than the offer advertisement... - Charging on the black market not as per the website currency - Weird question (discrimination) on the check in of choosing the bed! - Parking slots are not for free - Water and towels are not available after 23:00 - Operator was so bad during night shift (bad respond)
Perfect location in the heart of Hamra. Walking distance to many locations. Good breakfast.
We receveid the room with back window so we didn’t hear the street sound. But if anyone receive the one with the street view it can be difficult to sleep. In front of hotel there are some very popular pubs and bars.
They picked me up at airport (hotel official car) and when I arrived to hotel they upgraded my room without charging extra cost. Ladies in reception were very helpful and kind (thanks Layal and Inas). I will definetely come back.
