“Nice location, carnival ride elevators”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

Yikes the elevator rides! Not for the squeamish or those prone to motion sickness, but fun. Great location just off the main square leading to the citadel - which is undergoing HEAVY renovation, making visiting a bit of a challenge, but doable with some walking about and the scolding guidance of the guards. I'd stay here again. (Something I find throughout the country is that many people in the service sector still don't quite have the hang of the courteous, tourist-friendly approach - it's as if they regard tourists as a nuisance - which we are to some degree, I guess- but the general lack of warmth from many people is very noticeable over time. I found myself tipping generously those few individuals who welcomed us with a smile and/or friendly greeting, and just ignoring the rest. Many in the service sector don't seem to grasp the connection between service and gratuity, and that the former must precede the latter.)

The hotel is in the city center but it is very old, even the rooms that have been renewed are very ruined, very hugly and very very dirty.The breakfast is very poor.
