Parking around the hotel can be a bit exasperating, but once you're through the door the staff are friendly and you get to drop your gear off fast enough.
You're over here for freedoms anyhow, and a place to sleep. The rooms are dated, but functional. The TV wasn't really watchable until after a lot of faffing around setting the channels and right signal band. The shower was low pressure but did the job. Getting a room street side could lead to difficulty sleeping as a poor junction just up the road has the usual Arab drivers on their horns honking their anger at everyone at all time of day. This being the Indian sector also there is little reason for westerners to repeatedly go for evening walks. Just ask the desk for help getting you down to Juffair and go enjoying those freedoms.
