We chose this place for my birthday. The rooms are very clean, the furniture is baroque which I loved in shades of white and turqoise. The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable. The room has a dressing table which is lovely. Fridge with minibar. Thick curtains that block the light so definitely can have a lie in. The windows are superb double glazing. The hotel is right in front of the mosque. Trust me these windows are impenetrable. You can barely hear the prayers when they are on. Good, strong air-con too. Finally, the breakfast is not a buffet but a choice of a few wonderful different dishes including muesli, omelette, turkish or european breakfast that also comes with their own home made chocolate as well as tomato chutney and beautiful honey, good, real coffee made there and then, fruit salad which is huge, god is a long list of tasty food. The hotel also has happy hour with 50% off. The staff are personable and very helpful and professional. Highly recommended hotel.
