I was hoping I'd be pleasantly surprised when booking this hotel and it wouldn't live up to my expectations of being not so good but sadly it lived up to what I was expecting.
1. When booking this hotel, I clearly requested non smoking. They confirmed my selection and advised they can do this. Upon checking in they gave me a smoking room and it stank! I asked for it to be changed and they said they can't as they fully booked.
2. The gym. It doesn't open until 9am. But guess what, only women can use it between 9am and 1pm. Men are not allowed until 1pm. On all my years staying in all sorts of hotels, all over the world I've never come across such rules. I like an early morning work out but in this hotel I can't.
3. It's noisy. Kids running around at all hours of night up and down the hall way and no one seems to do anything about it. Rooms are not sound proofed.
The plus side, it was cheap compared to other hotels in Sharjah and neighbouring Dubai. However I wouldn't rush here again. I certainly wouldn't bring my family here for sure. The most irritating thing is the gym and when "men" can use it.
Plus side: Rooms were clean, OK, nothing to get excited about.More
