We stayed for 4 nights in late September. We found the hotel staff helpful and friendly and thew room (404, a double room) was good and clean with decent facilities including a minibar that was reasonably priced, microwave & fridge, extensive toiletries & toothbrushes, loofahs etc, and aircon. The aircon worked well, but had not been switched on when we arrived, so took a while to cool down.
The location is goodm near the Corniche ans upscale hotels like the Four Seasons. There was plenty of food choices nearby, and taxis are cheap to go elsewhere.
As for taxis, there is a man hanging around outside who tries to arrange cabs for you, but we found it easier to speak directly to taxi drivers (most had decent English) and get much cheaper prices. Uber works really well here too so we ended up using that for most journeys.
Breakfast was not a bad buffet, and was surprisingly good for the price of the room.
I'd be happy to stay here again.More
