Eh

This hotel is well located, but not a great place to stay for more than a few nights. The beds are hard, the AC does not come on until June 1, the food is not delicious and the staff barely speaks English so it is difficult to ask them for help or recommendations. On the plus side, the hotel is near the metro in Old Town and within walking distance of the Grand Bazaar and if you can stand to sleep with the windows open in a VERY noisy city, the the room is cool enough at night.
