Sound isolation is terrible and super bad from next rooms and from the road, you will definitely risk your sleep.
I needed to call room service five times to get the standard cotton shoes that should be already there. And I needed to call them three times to get water.
Also, room service didn't renew the shampoo and other bath stuff when they cleaned.
Although hotel price is high compared to the hotel level and city, they made me pay for the water!! I think they made the hotel to host desert lizards or camels that don't need to drink water. And the reception didn't mention that I have to pay for water when I checked in, they made is a surprise when I checked out.
I'm sure there are many hotels where you get better return on your money than this hotel.
Additionally, I called to ask about a place to visit, they said they will call back but never got a call from them.
However, breakfast is good, location is excellent and staff are nice.
