This hotel is the only 5-star hotel in Taiz city. It sits on a hill that allows you have a spectacular view of Saber Mountain and city. Taiz is a crowded but beautiful city. You feel home with the friendly hotel staff and also the shopkeepers in the hotel bazaar. Food is amazing as well.

Part of Accor's MGallery hotels, this property is located atop the peak of a hillock that provide bird's eye overview of almost the entire city of Ta'izz from its rooms and the premises as a whole. The hotel has its own (private) approach, which is barricaded well, and provides an extra sense of safety and privilege. A big central lobby...

This hotel has seen better times. Not because service is poor, or because of lack of maintenance, but because the overall situation in Yemen discourages tourism and does not stimulate business. Thus, few guests, but the staff at the hotel give their best. The room was nice, a bit small, but with a new bathroom. Overall, I would say that...
