2/10 Poor

I don't recommend this hotel.
My staying in Dora Hotel was not so good for many reasons on behalf of "4 stars hotel". If the hotel was 2 or 3 stars it would be OK. 1- Cleanliness is 5/10, within 3 nights we have stayed, they have changed towels only one time and they didn't change blankets، they have just arrange and fold. 2- They ignored my request for drinking water, and said you can drink from restaurant. That's why I was purchasing drinking water myself. (they put only 2 pottles of 300 ml. water everyday, and last day when they have found a big bottle of water which I have purchased, they didn't put any drinking water!) 3- Air condition was out of service، and their argument was: they put the air condition on only in the summer although the temperature was 22 C. Other employee lied to me and said they are working on repairing the A/C system. 4- It is normal to ask reception to order for taxi, whae I have asked them, simply said you can get it from out side. 5- Some of the staff fit to work in a vegetable shop, not in 4-stars hotel.. 6- Hotel is located in industrial area (car repairs carage). 7- Usually all hotels which I have booked for many years they didn't withdrown money from credit card which I mention during the booking before checking in, but Dora Hotel has withdrown amount before I have arrived hotel and checked in?! Although it is very clearly mentioned in that the credit card which mentioned in the booking only for confirming the booking.

Not conveniently located. Person next door was smoking all night, my husband was coughing for three days, it wasn't until the third day we got switched. Dirty room, with mold in the showers, towels were not changed, we had to ask them. Breakfast very basic with no fruits, and left overs, cold cake
