However, we were pleasantly surprised!! From the Concierge to the check in to the reception ambiance it was truly amazing. Good value for money, great service. The rooms... More

Impressive place for relaxing after a long hours drive, and spending your time with friends & family, my choice was the cozy room with good view. The first experience with this hotel was very good and really deserves the amount paid. Food and staff are accommodating … hoping that the edifice will end soon …looking forward to be back in...

Stayed with my friends there for few days. Very clean and well maintained room. Breakfast was good. Location is lovely. Swimming pool is not bad at all. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good choice at the end.

Hotel is nice and price is reasonable. The hotel is located in the city centre, not far from the Corniche. Staff was helpfull and for a family with small children it was very convenient to have many shops and grocery stores around. We were upgraded to a studio and to have stayed here.

Service at this hotel is awful, and you'll find yourself waiting at least 15 minutes during check-in and check-out. Two restaurants - Checkers and Harvesters both have mediocre food, but you wont be able to eat alone, as the places are riddled with prostitutes, and they continuously approach you for business. Current construction in the building means plenty of unwanted... More

A group of friends and I a couple of months ago visited Sands Hotel following a three week trip in Thailand. The hotel is located on a side street, lobby is impressive enough but this impressiveness dwindles when you get into the rooms. Very dated, dreary, bathrooms ok. I mean, for a three day stopover back to London this is... More

First of all, I waited an hour for the hotel shuttle to pick me up. The receptionist gave me the wrong information about who was picking me up. So, I stayed at this hotel and let's just say that it is nothing like the pictures. Only the hotel lobby looks nice. The rooms are smelly and old. The internet does... More
