This can be a whole book:
* Bathroom is made for a barbie dollhouse an smelled exactly of sewage. I couldn't even wudu in the sink and I'm not a big person. You take a shower and you need to swim out of the bathroom; there is so much water on the floor outside because the shower is so small.
* Room was shaped very oddly with a long corridor to get to the room.
* Floor boards were extremely old and warped due to moisture.
* The pictures you see above are probably taken the first day this hotel opened, probably in the times of the Ottoman Empire. They are greatly staged and have NO amenities.
* Staff does not care what so ever. Horrible server from start to end. Only one person knows English but he was the only friendly staff member.
* On top of a hill, the days we came, there was a sewage leak (or water leak), resulting in sewage running down the steep hill.
* Oh, steep hill! I loved this part because I would take it as an exercise but the wifie wasn't too pleased.
* The electronic keycard needed to be demagnetized every day. This was one of the most annoying parts, for me to get to the room, completely tired, and find my key card doesn't work any longer just as it didn't work the day before and before that.
* This hotel isn't that close to haram. Its close, but after returning from haram a person is extremely exhausted; therefore, any walk is excruciating.
* The bed - oh my god, the bed! I believe the beds were made of wood, with a sheet of cloth over them. I literally knocked on the bed and could hear the same knocking sound as i would knocking on wood. If you have bad back, the beds are great for you, but if you have a bad back, you ain't getting up that hill! An Oxymoron.
* The "clean" towels are anything but clean!
* The AC was "split" AC, which doesn't cool so well. It had a remote which was nasty!
- Next visit, inshallah, we're going back to our Pullman ZamZam. Its a bit more, but worth it.
It was relatively close to haram. Relatively because it wasn't too
close, but close enough.
