I have stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. It is well located - 2 minutes walk to Blue Mosques. It has a certain charm, a nice terrace, decent breakfast and friendly staff, BUT the furniture is old and quite dirty, my room was very small and had a bad smell, the towels were old and overused. I honestly do not understand how it has received so many good reviews! I have chosen the hotel based on the scoring on TripAdvisor, but I do not cope with the reviewers who have appreciated the location so much!
