Building woek next to Marhaba Palace

Hiya

Could anyone provide an update on the building work next to the Marhaba Palace PEK. When we stayed at the Riviera last May the the hotel next to the palace had just been demolished. I fancy the look of this hotel and there are some good AI deals on.

1. Re: Building woek next to Marhaba Palace

Im staying at the Marhaba Palace in mid April, I had an update letter from Thomson back in October, the old Green Park hotel was demolished, new hotel being built, the last I checked all the floors were up so hopefully no dust,lol.

Thomson have assured me that we will be placed in a room far from building work, im not bothered about it anyhow really. I vowed 5 years ago when I drove past the Marhaba that id love to stay there and thats what im determined to do,lol. One hundred and ten days til I get to Surrey to stay with my Fiances Brother, then hes taking us to Gatwick 2 days later, cant blimmin wait!!!

I just came back from the Riviera yesterday and as we had previously stayed at the Green park we went to see how it was getting on.

It is still a shell with 3 large cranes on site.

There were lots of workmen waiting outside at the end of the afternoon and I personally wouldnt want to spend a holiday overlooking this building site.

I will try and put a photo on the Green Park review section.

Can I just ask a question- is this marhaba or imperial marhaba? Only been to PEK once before and so some of the hotel names are familiar but not sure exactly where you're talking about. I'm staying at the RIU imperial marhaba palace in March and worrying now. Any replies appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for the update everyone - looks like the building work is ongoing. Given that First Choice are banging the hotel out at £550 forn two weeks AI mid May I'm still tempted to book this

Thomas Cook seem to have the best offers.

The week before Christmas their prices came right down it was almost as cheap for 1 week AI as a night in the UK B&B.

I am looking at prices for April and TC are at least £100 each cheaper for the same hotel as Thomson/First Choice.

I booked with Thomson in August for our holiday in April, 2 weeks all inc for 2 of us. Thirteen hundred give or take a few pounds. Seriously, at that price for May, id book it.
