The hotel's prime location and exceptionally friendly staff were highlights of my stay. They were not only helpful but also chatty and fun to talk to, providing excellent tourist tips. However, the check-in process was a bit messy, with a promised early check-in delayed to the original time and further delayed by an additional 20 minutes. The rooms, considering the price, were satisfactory, yet the inadequate isolation of walls and doors allowed for noticeable noise from neighboring rooms. Cleanliness, particularly the prevalence of dust, was a concern, prompting me, as someone with asthma and dust allergies, to take medication. An unusual incident occurred when the room cleaner disposed of a grocery bag full of snacks while neglecting to discard empty water bottles, coffee cups, and other items. Although the hotel staff kindly offered to reimburse for the discarded goods, the issue wasn't about the money, given the affordability of items there. Instead, it highlighted a lapse in the cleaning process, as the grocery bag, not actual trash, was mistakenly thrown away. Despite these setbacks, the hotel's positive aspects, the staff's gracious gesture, and the stunning views from the top floor made the overall experience enjoyable, with potential for improvement in certain areas.

Literally just left this hotel this morning. An amazing experience, Dawud in particular was amazing. He went out of his way to help my friend and I navigate the city, find the best currency exchange, and find the best eats. The entire staff is super friendly and super helpful. Conveniently located and generally great! The terrace is lovely and had a superb view, the room was clean and had a fridge. Cleaning did remove the card we stuck in to keep the fridge cold, but thankfully it retains cold during the day. Highly recommend, would stay here again--its a good location, we walked everywhere except the airport. Also! They were very helpful for getting to the airport at 4 am :)
