“Worst experience ever !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had a bad experience with this booking.We bank transfer USD 200 to Sheikena Home after confirming with the booking site as deposit before arrival. However on arrival , we paid again the USD 200 in cash to the owner in good faith as she insisted that she did not receive the bank transfer. Our bank later confirmed that the amount was successfully transferred to the account given by the owner.Despite scanning over our bank transactions documents to the booking site and the owner of Sheikena Home, we never received a refund as she still said she did not receive the bank transfer. The booking site is of no help at all in getting a refund for me.. They should remove the posting of this hotel.. So, I would like to advise traveller never to send the deposit and do not trust booking site and reviews completely..
The room given was windowless and small for 3 of us. No air-conditioning and noisy fan with no speed control. Bathroom is dirty. Difficulty in communication as owner hardly speak English. Not pretty location and quite a walk to station. Not worth the price we paid for at all !
