good value, location & staff

Hotel has good location to prime spots, rooms are clean, staff is co-operative & helpful. Room & bathroom is small but sufficient enough. TV was small & old types but it really doesnt matter since news & music channel was enough for me. I like morning coffee so I carry sachets, on request i was provided a small kettle :-). Breakfast was good but cold at times. They also arranged a taxi for early hours flight. Location is walking distance to Blue Mosque, grand bazaar....spice market if you are good at directions and can walk for 20 min. They offered me boat tour which was quite expensive but I did everything on my own for a fraction of cost. In the end, loved my stay at the hotel.

The Staff stood out more than the hotel!

The pictures are a little deceiving - front of hotel is not recognisable from picture. Room was VERY small - just fitted a queen bed and space to shuffle around. Bathroom facilities were good. Food for breakfast was OK - nothing special. The staff made the difference. The staff were very helpful. They were casual but responded to our every need and helped to interpret when needed. Around the corner - by the prison (Yes, I said prison) there are a lot of fish restaurants - to get a good cheap beer, go to the local bar opposite the front door of the prison, beer was half the price of the restaurants. Hotel was located in a fair location..... you have to walk up hill to get anywhere - so if you don't like hills, take a cab, they are reasonably priced. Transport to and from airport - take a cab, about $25 to $30 US. Would not recommend hotel to others unless they were backpacking or just wanted to do it cheap! Roof top of hotel looks out over thewater.... however you also look at all the roof tops of houses that look like they are falling apart and big seaguls hang out on the roof top too, expect to have some close calls with the birds when they come into land!
