We are on vacation in this hotel from September 23 to October 2, 2023. The holidays are going great. Despite the fact that the hotel is located in an urban area and not near the beach, the hotel will be able to provide a relaxation area for guests. Large cool pool, sun loungers, shower, there is a bar! Some of the sun loungers are in the water, it looks very unusual! the pool area is very clean, the staff is responsive and very friendly, they will always help! I especially liked Nadeem, thanks to him!

Pool is small!! It is nothing like what one might think after looking at the pictures. Front desk is NOT helpful at all. View of the Canal from the restaurant is amazing!! There are only 3 small elevators for an 18 floor building. Which is why there is waiting and stopping a lot especially if you are on a higher floor.
