We loved our 3 nights in this beautiful hotel. The room was very comfortable with fabulous views from the terrace. Staff could not have been more helpful and courteous. A real treat to stay here. Breakfast on the terrace was tasty.

Does this hotel cater the gluten free? Also are there many restaurants around to go to?
Have no idea about Gluten-free , email them. It is a most beautiful hotel located inside the walls of Medina. They have a good restaurant and there are some others around.

"Access to beautiful corridor, rooms 1 to 8. Room 1, Presidential Suite. Amazing views & most quiet area, rooms from 8 to 19."
"Go for something above a standard duplex which is nothing special"
"Look for rooms with a view"
"If you have a duplex guarantee whatever you want is on the other floor but room 4 is beautifully appointed"
"If you can afford it, ask for the suite with the jacuzzi - fantastic view!"
