“Good medium level business hotel”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have stayed at the Darin Plaza twice in the last year, probably a total of 15 nights. Its friendly, well located, clean and has decent facilities. Having looked at a few hotels in Erbil I think the Darin Plaza is an excellent choice for a business traveller.

Room Tip: Ask for one that looks towards the Citadel. It's a great view at any time of day.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better hotel in this price range. The rooms are clean, the staff is very polite and very helpful. One look at the pool and I headed down the block to Royal Mall to buy a bathing suit. Breakfast was also good with everything from cheese to fresh and dried fruits and a couple of hot dishes.

Had stayed at Darin for 2 days and enjoyed the time. Spacious and clean room and good service given our recent experience in another city in Kurdistan. People understood and spoke English. Free wifi was only available in the lobby. Room had wired Internet access for computers though. Breakfast was OK traditional Kurd bread with variety of juices eggs and yogurts. Location is good. Walking distance from family mall and 10-15 minutes drive to bazaar and souk iskan.

There is a number of similar hotels in Erbil and what makes a difference is location and service. Number of stars really doesn't tell you anything. Darin Plaza is located in a good location, with easy access and walking distance from Royal mall. Breakfast is really poor, no selection, cheap canned meat, if you want omlet, it will be charged extra. If you want your room to be cleaned, you have to leave sign on the door, otherwise you will come back to the room you left, with used coffee cups and no clean towels. Swimming pool is mid size, sauna is OK, hamam is not that good and stinks. Gym is a walk through room to the swimming pool. So overall experience is really average.

Room Tip: Go for a big room (301, 401, 501...) with a nice sitting area and separate bedroom.

In a city where stars of the hotels does not match the internatinal or even regional standards, this hotal is a good choice. The staff are polite and helpful, the rooms and pool are clean,breakfast is acceptable and the location is suitable for abussiness trip. The central rooms which have twin beds have no window so you may feel like prisoner in there but thats the way it is built...i will stay in this hotel next time i go to erbil

A very pleasant hotel. The lobby is big and light, and with a very helpfull staff. Behind it is a comfortable cafetaria.
The room was not big but very comfortable and clean. Roomcleaners come along every day but in the five weeks I stayed in this hotel their services were not dailly neccessary. When the electricity drops, the hotelgenerator takes it over immediately.
Breakfast, lunch (not allways as buffet available) and dinner (not allways as buffet available) are very good. Hotelmanager Befrin Nistiman, who is a very charming, humoristic lady, takes personally care of the daily changing meals, and with that she does a very good job.
When I come back in Erbil, it will be in Darin Plaza Hotel.

Darin Plaza Hotel location is very central in Erbil city. The malls and government office are very close. You can use the city taxi for 4000-5000 dinar ($4) to reach anywhere in the city. The rooms are medium. TV and kettle. The electrity goes down offen. be careful with generator noise. try to get high floor with street biew. the service is below average. The room keepers folds the used towels and bed sheets. you have to warn them replace te towels and bed sheets. breakfast is ok. fruits cheese and bread. The management allow smoking in the lobby.
