Mosques and Museums

This city has a large amount of good places to go sightseeing, exquisite mosques to visit and important museums with collections worth being seen. The problem is that, if you want a hotel in the old town center, to be able to walk to this places, the service and the hotel itself is not a big thing. Noisy, staff is usually rude and nobody is on time...Choosing a nice hotel takes you away from the center and makes you dependant on taxis. Dilemmas...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful city at the old town surroundings
  • Cons:Too many tourists...
  • In a nutshell:Worth going on different times, separated by years, to avoid remembering the bad service of last time...
