The hotel is a fair way from the city centre but very usefully situated if you are visiting to watch cricket or if your main interest is spending time at the Grand Mosque. Both are very short taxi journeys away. The hotel does an excellent buffet breakfast, but the evening choices are rather limited and quite expensive. There is a hypermarket about 20 minutes walk from the Ibis along the adjacent waterway as far as the bridge and then 200 metres to the right after the relatively small mosque. There is a petrol service station even closer that also sells snacks and burgers etc.
The Ibis is otherwise very comfortable and the rooms are fine and the free Wi-Fi works well. In addition there always appears to be a taxi waiting outside whenever you might be in need of one.
