Positive Reviews

Very good location

Guests really liked the location of the hotel; principally for two reasons. Firstly, it was close to the airport, so those on airport layovers did not have long to travel to and fro. Secondly, the hotel was said to be very close to the Al Rigga Metro Station, from where guests could easily catch trains to the more popular tourist sections of the city.

Very spacious rooms

Guests were very pleasantly surprised with the size of their rooms. They said they were extra spacious and really gave them the chance to stretch out and relax.

Rooms were very clean

Guests were liberal with their praise for the housekeeping department here. Both the rooms and public areas of the hotel were said to be kept spotlessly clean at all times.

Negative Reviews

Lots of noise from the nightclubs

Guests who were not particularly interested in nightlife seemed a little unhappy with the noise generated by the hotel’s own nightclubs. They were said to be popular clubs, with the inevitable noise generated heard in many of the guest rooms.

Poor service from the staff here

It seems the unhappiness of the guests with respect to customer service at the hotel was matched only by the unhappiness in general guests said the staff here displayed. They were said to be unfriendly in general and unwilling to do much more than the bare minimum when faced with a request from a guest.

The fitness centre is too small

Guests who had been hoping to get in a full workout, complained that the fitness centre was both small and contained only a limited range of equipment. They did not feel they could get in a good workout with what was available.
