However Erbil is not a place for tourists these days due to the wars, but if you're traveling for business then have to find a nice place like this for your stay! Best good point is breakfast (almost Arabic !), rooms were quiet, location normal, massage, useful staff, backup electricity (Power loss is normal in Erbil so make sure your...

Functional, relatively clean hotel – I’ll give it 3-stars by Dubai standards. Surprisingly good Internet connection. Speedy check-in/out. Some of the bathrooms can be a little stinky but the hotel will change if occupancy allows. Breakfast is decent but gets really boring if you spend time there; the same restaurant serves lunch and dinner – not good, unadvisable especially as...

The hotel staff was helpful, the price was OK and the internet was fast enough. As for cleanliness, I would rate the hotel a 5 out of 10. I kept my valuables with me and only left my clothes (in a different bag) in my room. One night when I returned to my room, my clothes were gone. I went...

Except location there was nothing to deserve appreciation. Very poor breakfast, small and slow single lift causing time lost, uncomfortable bathroom, old furnitures in room. It was hard to sleep at night due to lack of sound insulation with neighbor rooms.

Hotel has very good location and spacious rooms, and staff were very polite. I cut my stay short and changed hotel after 5...

New hotel on a busy road with no places thereabout at walking distance. Rooms good but noisy. Poorly organized services: eg laundry slow and expensive. Internet WiFi for free, but with many problems: slow network with many up and down. Good food at breakfast but with a complex and SLOW organization. Restaurant not good: little choice and expensive buffet menu...
