Upon our arrival to Cordial's door we encountered a locked door. We booked this in May and received a confirmation email on May 12. As we stood in front of Cordial, two men approached from across the street to tell us that the hotel had closed one or two months ago. When I called the "help" number I got a message all in Arabic. I don't understand Arabic. The two men got us in connection with another hotel which found us a second hotel at the same cost as Cordial would have been.
L'hôtel est très bien situé, à 500 m du grand bazar et de la mosquée bleue, les chambres sont propres par contre la cuisine est peu équipée et les douches sont assez anciennes
I have stayed at many different HI Hostels across the world and in my experience this one was my least favourite. Staff almost seemed to be annoyed by the guest rather than helpful or energetic. I also found it strange that every single thing had to be paid for (this has not been my experience at other Hi Hostels).
The location was perfect at least.
