The hotel is generally excellent.
Firstly the room was well-sized, comfortable and impeccably kept and cleaned every day.
As for facilities, the hotel boasts several of the best restaurants in the city, while the Chocolate Gallery cafe is amazing - try the afternoon tea which is particularly reasonably priced too. The breakfast buffet was well presented and options numerous every day. The swimming pool is also a good size, and the gym well equipped.
The staff were all friendly and always helpful and willing to go out of their way for you.
If you are looking for something in the centre of the city mind, it's probably not the hotel for you - travel to the centre takes at best 25-30 minutes, and perhaps more than an hour in traffic which is not at all uncommon in the city; taxis are cheap and reliable nonetheless. Otherwise, for relaxation outside of the city, visiting the mosque and indeed shopping and enjoying eating out at the restaurants in the Souk next door, the Fairmont is a great choice.
