The hotel is not an Ibis Styles Hotel, It has been sold and no one informed me abut this. Had I known this in advance, I would have probably made alternative arrangements.
The Hotel was not anymore in the standard of an Ibis Styles it once had. It was badly maintained, run down and in need of much tlc. The beds and pillows were not comfortable. Towels, although clean, seemed very old and overused. In the bathroom, the original shower was not working while the additional one was flooding the bathroom as the shower screen was not big enough. Enjoyed the company of a colony of ants in the bathroom. When air conditioning was switched on, a bad smell was coming out of it so we had to do without it. Breakfast was OK.
One positive about this was closeness to the Old Town - Damascus Gate was within walking distance.
