On a scale of 1-10 for....
- cleanliness: 97
- modern-ish: 9
- inside noise level: 4 (you can hear everything; the walls are thin)
- staff friendliness: 7 (they seemed to have been "Americanized" which means they weren't as hospitable)
- location: 8 (the street starts out shady but it's literally one block from the south entrance of Old City)
- American standards (we're travel snobs):
Once you get to the hotel, you will be pleasantly surprised with the decor and that they speak quite a bit of English. Although they don't seem to be as accommodating as the other hotels, the decor reads beautifully and the outside bench adjacent to your door is a wonderful place to sit and chat in the evenings.
If you can move past the intimate conversations that you can clearly hear, you'll love it!
