Checked in o.k. quite late on a Friday night so wanted to get out and experience the night-life promptly, was held up with lots of form filling asking for every detail, including passport numbers. Had twin room which had just enough clearance at the bottom of the bed to walk past (if you turned sideways). Bathroom was small, just enough room to turn in. When one of our parties shower fell from the wall (no fault of his own) due to a loose wall bracket and smashed the shower screen the receptionist tried to make us pay 80LATS damage and 40LATS for a new room. Got manager involved who reduced cost to 30LATS, we reluctantly paid as we didnt want to spend the whole night arguing. I'd say go there for a weekend, certainly don't stay here if you don't like stag/hen parties with rowdy noisey people. Didn't use the restaurant. Hotel is a good 1 hour walk into town (St Peter's Church area) but even the locals don't recommend going out near the hotel at night (area a bit like down-town Baghdad). Shop across the road did a roaring trade, would go there often for snacks and drinks.
