I stayed at the Classic just down the road from the Royale. The two other reviews I saw complained about the rooms, but they are almost done with a major revamp, and my room was spotless, much better than the Sheraton. And unlike the Sheraton, there is no nearby nightclub that will keep you awake until the small hours. The gym was quite good, with only one running machine not working. Overall much better value for money than the Sheraton, I paid about $150 per night.
On the down side, the restaurant was terrible. I only had one meal there, which was supposed to be beef, but I am convinced was camel meat from a camel that had died of old age. After that I had all my meals in the restaurant inside a supermarket a few hundred meters from the hotel.
Beware of the way they charge a deposit to your credit card: They don't reserve funds on your credit card, they actually charge the full amount when you check in. I had to check out a week earlier than planned, the front desk staff told me they could not refund the difference at the hotel, they referred it to "head office" who would arrange with Visa for the refund. Needless to say, a week later and the refund has not happened. I hope to get Visa to reverse the charge, if it depends on the hotel, I've been conned in Nigeria once again...
