I spent 5 nights here last week for work and had a great stay.
When I arrived after an overnight flight, my room wasn't ready as check in wasn't until 2pm. However they were more than happy to let me use a room to catch up on sleep, and then check me into my correct room later on.
The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic, and the selection of the food on the buffet in the breakfast and evenings are great. I ate at the hotel every day and was really impressed with the quality and flavour of the food, as well as the price. One evening I ate from the set menu and it was exceptional! Mr Pritish, the restaurant manager, couldn't do enough for me. Always making sure I was well fed, as well as making recommendations and talking through each buffet option. Thanks Pritish!
All of the staff at the hotel were great, and went out of their way to ask how my day had been, and if they could do anything for me. I was always greeted by first name which made the stay really personable. It's small things like that which really make the difference.
The hotel is conveniently located close to the business district and is 5 minutes in a taxi from the central bus station, and 10-15 minutes from the Expo Centre.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you have work commitments in Sharjah, or if you would like to experience more tradition that many of the glitz and glamour hotels in Dubai can offer. A trip to Dubai cost as little as Dhs 17.00 (approximately £3) by taxi then bus and takes around 40 minutes, so its great value to stay here!
Thanks again to Pritish (Restaurant Manager), Mohamed Ali (General Manager) and Binu (Health Club).
