Check-in & check-out was efficient; the suite was spacious, clean with all amenities. The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of choice, both Arabic and Western. The problem was the room service(!). The first night, I called the guy told my order will be served in half an hour. So I wait one hour and call again, and was asked... More

“Front rooms are noisy these days due to construction work. I think the feeling of drills will be transmitted to other rooms. I am not aware for how long this work will last. Allow plenty of time to reach and leave the hotel due traffic congestion at most of the time.”
