At 3 am, there was no traffic on the road at all and we were at the hotel within 10 minutes.
The room at Le Meridien Baniyas Square was very clean. The decor and surroundings were equivalent to a medium-quality American motel. It did have a kitchen, with burner plates and a kettle, but curiously enough no microwave. The dishes were clean, but the pots and pans clearly needed to be replaced. There wasn’t much of a view to speak of – although on our second stay at the hotel a week later, we did have a view of the ocean if we craned our neck outside the room.
