Don't bother

Posted Jan 31, 2016
Even though it's close to the airport traffic meant a 50 minute taxi ride tv could only get 1 chanel water in shower went from Luke warm to cold in 5 minutes . The lift was very hit and miss and no lights in the stairs.

Sharq Hotel is in the middle of Sharjah's commercial district: plenty of stores, cheap restaurants. The Fort and the old walled town are only a short walk. It's a simple, basic hotel. The room wasn't particularly comfortable, but this is exactly what I expected from a 2-star hotel in that neighborhood. There's a wide gap underneath the door so you will hear when other guests arrive and leave, and you may also have to listen to their music if they leave their doors open. The staff was courteous and always ready to help.

I enjoyed staying there. For the amount of money I paid for the room it worth it. The receptionist are very friendly and professional.

Free 5.30 wake-up call

Posted Feb 2, 2015 on Hotels
I had a pleasant stay at the Al Sharq Hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is quite central and close enough to other attractions. The room was nicely presented, although the bathroom was a little bit dated. I didn't notice noise from the traffic too much, despite the hotel being located on a busy part of Rollo Square. I did notice the morning prayers, however. Situated next door to a mosque, the prayers are loud, particularly at 5.30 in the morning.

Helpful, courteous staff as always.

We have stayed here a few times now. The location is great. Near to a wide choice of shops and restaurants with easy access to taxis or buses. The staff are always helpful and polite. There is now wifi access in the rooms and the quantity of satellite channels is the most I have ever seen in a hotel. The rooms are not that big and bathrooms are becoming a bit dated. Great place for a smooth, stress-free stay.

Sharjah is a cheaper option to Dubai

Posted Apr 21, 2013 on Hotels
Everything in Sharjah was much cheaper than in Dubai. The bus connections to Dubai are frequent and only cost 7 UAD for the 1 hour ride. The customer service in the hotel was excellent. On the first floor, the Wi-Fi was available in the room so there was no need to pay for it. The only drawback was that there is a mosque next door so the call to prayer is very loud in the room. Overall, the hotel is highly recommended.
