Reviewed 30 March 2012

We stayed at this hotel chain and assumed that this new one will be fine but it was as if they had a grand opening and allowed every one in for free for a month. Its position is bad. rooms are smelly. very very basic breakfast. staff.... it stops there.

Spent 3 nights at citymax. Room was ok and bathroom was clean. The television was also ok as there were some English channels to choose from.

Hotel is deceptive in their description of free wi fi as you had to pay and could only access it in the lobby.

Breakfast was not great but not that bad either and at 30aed was more than reasonably priced.

Staff can sometime be slow and the location of the hotel is not ideal as its by the motorway but overall you get what you pay for.

This is a local chain of hotels - they have tree in the Emirates. Looks all good but my bathroom was not so clean and the room as such was rather small.

The room was also very noisy, I could hear my neighbours quite well. There was no WIFI in the hotel only cable and that only for 30mins for free , after that you needed to pay.

The location is not that nice, located on a very noisy big street/freeway.

Breakfast was not that well athough a buffet - only fresh fruit was acceptable.

I will not sleep there anymore except if I don't have a choice.

I`ve stayed 2 nights in Sharjah in Citymax, it`s a budget hotel, close to nothing, taxi is the only way. Nice rooms though, comfortable beds, bath ok, a little small. But awful, awful breakfast.
Free internet, even if wired, is a plus. For a budget hotel.

Citymax is not a very good hotel for leisure. During the time I stayed the hotel was full of people. Reception was slow. Rooms are ok but bathrooms were not I used to see in the hotels in UAE. Citymax can be a good hotel for business but not good for a vacation.
