“Very pleasant hotel but pool area could be improved”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Great lobby and very pleasant, good-sized rooms. Restaurant offered a good selection - and the massage was amazingly good and well worth it.
Only drawback - there is no pool bar for soft drinks, snacks etc - you could order at the pool reception but the service was very slow indeed (about 50 minutes wait for three soft drinks).

Room Tip: A room to the front is slightly quieter as the call to prayer is not heard so clearly there.

Thank you very much for your review of our hotel and in particular the kind comments regarding the ‘great lobby and very pleasant, good sized rooms’, the ‘good selection in the restaurant’ and the ‘amazing massage that was well worth it’, they really are much appreciated.

May we also thank you for your feedback on the service at the pool and assure you that drinks service speed has been suitably expedited accordingly now.

Meanwhile, we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel, should your travels ever bring you back to Sharjah.

Can't fault the rooms here. Beautiful views and light and spacious. Pools and gym quiet and clean. Only drawback is the unhelpful attitude and slow service of many staff on front desk and in restaurant. Other staff at pool, gym and housekeeping excellent. Needs the Hilton touch.

Thank you very much for your review of our hotel and in particular the kind comments regarding the ‘great, spacious, light rooms with beautiful views’ and the ‘quiet and clean pools and gym’, they really are much appreciated.

May we also thank you for your feedback on the service of some front line staff, who are undergoing a comprehensive training program designed to facilitate the Hilton levels of service that are expected as we transition into Hilton Sharjah.

Meanwhile, we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel, should your travels ever bring you back to Sharjah.

we stayed hier for1 week. everything was good en perfect. Rooms were big size and very clean. the staf was friendly and helpfull. everyone spoke english. A good service what they had was the shuttle to Deira city centre and Towers in Dubai. from there u could take the metro or taxi.
the best u can take the metro day card, costs 16 darhams.
the hotel is in Sharjah the taxis charge u 20 darhams more if you travel to or from Dubai. One thing we didn't expect from a 5 star hotel was that they didn't had Wifi or free internet also not in the lounge.

Dear SabineJan,

Thank you very much for your kind comments regarding our ‘perfect hotel’, the good and friendly service and the convenience of our shuttle bus service into major Dubai shopping centers with their Metro connections. I will certainly share these with the Team here and we very much value your feedback.

Your observation regarding Wi-Fi is accurate and we are addressing this as part of our conversion into ‘Hilton Sharjah’ early next year, after which the whole hotel will be Wi-Fi but currently all rooms have cabled HSIA and most public areas have Wi-Fi already installed now.

Meanwhile, the Team and I look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel, should your travels ever bring you back to Sharjah.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Aisha,

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the comfortable room, cleanliness and tidiness of the hotel and of course its privileged view across the waters of Khalid lagoon.

However, I was disappointed to learn of the ‘less-tan-perfect’ room assignment that you experienced and I have relayed your comments to those concerned, to ensure that this does not happen again.

Meanwhile, it would be a pleasure to meet you and serve as your chosen hotel once again, should you ever return to stay in Sharjah one day.

Yours sincerely

Hilton are taking over this hotel in July....so you can feel the changes coming! I was there for 3 months...and though the breakfast is boringe everyday...its the standard Hilton one. The restaurants are closed....and should re-open soon.

Great location opposite the corniche.
Gym and sauna is excellent...and hardly used.

Service is ok...some of the front office could be more helpful.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a corniche facing room.

The room I stayed in had old furniture and carpets and seems to be long overdue for a refurbish. I was given a deluxe or a suite with two rooms and bathrooms (didn't really care), but it didn't have a modern hotel feel to it.

Location is good and the view is nice as well. Hotel staff was nice and courteous as well.

I was there for one night only due to a business trip and got in late with an early morning conference and wanted one shirt pressed, however, I was told by the staff that they do not have their own laundry and the external laundery service they use will not open till 9 AM and my shirt cannot be returned before 10 as a result. Generally, at hotels they can get something to you quick by 8 if you arrive late in the night.

I was surprised and when I asked to speak to the duty manager I was told that he doesn't come in till 8 in the morning.

I had a very limited experience of one night only so can't comment more. Will avoid in future.

Room Tip: Get a view of corniche. Probably the only pro for this hotel.

Dear JaziJia,

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at our hotel.

Firstly, it was encouraging to read of your satisfaction with our location and your comments on our “nice and courteous staff”.

Addressing the other points, we are currently upgrading our laundry service, night management, beds, as well as many other as aspect of the hotel as we convert to Hilton Sharjah later this year.

Meanwhile we would certainly hope that you might still consider staying with us again, should you ever be visiting Sharjah again in the future.
