The souq itself has a lot of character and this hotel sits snugly in it. The rooms were nice but nothing to rave about. I didn't try the restaurant. Heavy luggage is a disadvantage not only because the rooms don't provide a suitcase stand but more because the taxi cannot drive up to the doorstep when dropping you off. Also in the evenings as the Souq car park tends to get crowded and it may take up to half an hour to get a taxi in an out of it, one has no option but to walk with the luggage to one of the main roads for a taxi.
