This was my second stay at the hotel and the services and facilities continue to be excellent. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel now has free wi-fi, which they did not have 3 years ago. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a lot of additional choices you don't see in hotel buffets, much more home-cooking like. I also appreciated the free airport transfer, the free tea/coffee service in their garden, and the discount if you pay in cash!
I was at first a bit concerned because our rooms were on the street side, not on the garden side as I had the last time, and I thought it might be very noisy. While there is street noise that can seem quite loud, even with windows closed, it did die down relatively early which allowed for good sleeping. There is a mosque right across the street, but it did not always have the early morning call to prayer, which was much appreciated. When it did have though, it did wake me up. So you may want to pack some earplugs, or run the A/C for some background white noise.
