This hotel has 2 separate buildings (wings), one is old and the other is new (called Mehood). The old building is the one with the main reception/front desk. It has old cheaper rooms. So that would explain The below average reviews that other travellers have given this place. We didn't stay there. We stayed in the new building/wing called the...

Great location HOWEVER the photographs on the website do NOT currently match reality. The hotel (aka as 'Merlinhod Hotel) is in much need of refurbishment; state of bathroom left a lot to be desired, it also appears shampoo/body wash containers are ‘topped up’ The bedroom reeked of cigarette smoke. We checked out within 4hours and found nearby alternate accommodation (Citadines)...

So the hotel is supposedly a 4.5 star, however felt more like a 3 star hotel. The hotel rooms were of an ok standard, but we did have to request our floors be cleaned as they were sticky when we checked in. We also had to request a safe as there was none in the room. Customer service is a...

To start off, we were here at the end of October, outside temperature was near freezing, and there was no heat in the building. We complained and they brought extra blankets. After running the tap for nearly ten minutes we had what, at best, could be described as warm water, which lasted for about 5 minutes. The bathroom was moldy,...

Check in was a breeze even as late as 1am. The English speaking lad was very helpful and since he didn't finish his shift until 8:30am, he helped book our Terracotta warrior trip. Buffet breakfast was great - local cuisine and loads of vegetables. Our room was huge with a brilliant view of the Drum and Bell Towers. At night,...

We were warmly welcomed by an English speaking staff at the lobby. Checking in was a breeze. Surprisingly no one offered help to carry our luggage. Room was huge with sofa and computer! Overall was a bit old and run down. At least it's clean! Location to Drum tower and Muslim Quarter are walking distance. Which is good. We were...
