Repeat customer not repeating
We stayed here 4 years ago and it was great. The breakfast is not that great anymore. The staff was not knowledgeable about the tax free for foreigners and refused to fix their mistake at checkout. Will not be back to this hotel. There are many other options for a similar price range. The category feels like a 3 star hotel not 4. The hotel is clean but just OK.

This hotel was everything! It’s close to literally everything in the walled city. If you need to go far or just want to avoid the heat reception will gladly call a cab for you and also recommend places to eat. The rooftop is amazing, so spacious compared to some of the boutique hotels nearby. Room good size, hot shower, I advise if you like a quiet room stay away from the rooms facing the clock tower in the plaza. Although they did an awesome job on soundproofing, you can still here a tad. We didn’t complain, we were a party group there for a wedding. Restaurant downstairs is sooooo delicious, have dinner or lunch here! Enjoy this cute place we will be back.

Excelente ubicación, rooftop precioso con vista espectacular, el personal muy amable, servicial, pero el cuarto estaba feo, húmedo, obscuro y sin ventana ni ventilación, un solo elevador tardadisimo y sin opción para tomar las escaleras por que solo había unas de emergencia que salían por la cocina y estaban laberínticas
