Spent 7 nights here.
Good position for the Beach (Corniche). Lots of eating places close by. Easy to get taxi at anytime. Bed was very comfortable. good nights sleep every night - took advice from other trip advisor reviews and asked for a high floor facing city.
The shower in the bathroom was disgusting - mould everywhere, when used water passed under the unsealed door and flooded the rest of the bathroom.
The room was a little uncared for, cup circles on the bedside table and coffee table from previous occupiors which we removed with hand wipes which we always carry around. Spilt tea or coffee had gone down the side of the bedside table at some time and was still there. Just need a proper clean. Slight mould appearing on the ceiling and wall aroud the air conditioning vent.
Only had breakfast on one morning as a lot of people in trip advisor had commented about the poor quality. This was proven, the staff at breakfast were anything but helpful. Breakfast was said to be available from 6am to 10.30. We went at around 9am - no bowls for cereal, asked three times before one was brought to me. No butter, asked twice. Asked for coffee and was served tea. Made to feel uncomfortable. Did not use the restraunt in the evening so cannot comment.
