I like my stay very much! The room was clean, centrally located, near the park and etc. It is walkable to many eating places as well as the main bus terminal. The Central Souq is just a minute walk from the hotel too. I had a conference in Dubai but I chose this hotel to stay in. Hotels in Dubai are expensive and the reviews are always bad. The free shuttle bus provided by the hotel starts at 10am to Deira Shopping Centre in Dubai and the pick up time is either at 1pm or 9pm.
Enjoyed our stay. Very nice place”
Toilet Flashing system not good.Couldn't not even push toilet paper. Had to use bumy gun to push the waste. Electric kettle wasn't working. Reported nothing was done. No in room lockout safe to keep valuables.

The bathroom need renovation, many dents in the bathtub. WC is old and not very clean.

Clean, well-equipped room, comfortable bed, outside pool
Smallish but clean and comfortable room with balcony. Generally quiet, but call for prayer might wake you up. Large grounds at the back with pool and playing field. Easy to walk to shops but crossing the main road. Otherwise, taxis are cheap. Shuttle buses to Sharjah centre and Dubai Deira were very useful but always full so get there early. Had American breakfast once for room service but it was awful. Didn't eat in the hotel restaurants. Most of the guests were Russian. Overall, good for the price.
location, view and cheap food
I spent one night with my family at the Hotel Holiday International Sharjah. The hotel is situated in a prime location, very close to restaurants and shops. The view of Khalid Lagoon and Sharjah skyline from the room is breathtaking. The staff were very helpful, especially Issam, the guy in charge of the restaurant. Breakfast was varied and palatable, and the food in general is reasonably priced. The swimming pool is large and with plenty of space around it. There are many facilities like a sauna, a steam room, two Gyms, and two tennis courts. However, there are some areas which need to be improved, such as the room balcony which was soiled with dust and bird poop. The hotel is well maintained from the inside; though its exterior wrongly gives the impression that it is an old, shabby hotel.
A mixture of pluses and minuses ”
Reasonable value, convenient location in Sharjah, Bright and spacious feel
There were mixed feelings about the hotel. Pluses: the hotel is conveniently located (near the Central Souk and bus station), some green area and Mosque, and also the lagoon and some 'theme park.' The swimming pool (outdoor), was quite ok too. There were some good staff on the concierge team.
The drawbacks were: I don't rate the breakfast much; was the usual spread of breakfast food, but not of great quality. I know that there are lots of Russians in Sharjah, but I thought it was strange to have a lobby tourist agency who could only cater for Russian speakers (ie: not for English speakers). The biggest problem though was the booking-in / reception. It was a busy day when we arrived, as there were many cricketers staying at the hotel. However, all other ordinary guests were consequently treated as second class citizens, while reception worked on booking the cricketers in first, plus give them drinks etc... There were at least 4 other sets of guests who had to wait patiently through all this (and we were all there well before the cricketers arrived). In total, I had to wait over 1 hour to get checked-in. It is not so much the time that is irksome but the way that it all happened; ie: having a small baby, not given any information as to how long (just told to "sit down please" (and don't ask questions). I remained patient for a long while, but after the hour, just wasn't really happy with the service. To cap it, the same happened on departure. Told to wait in the empty reception / lobby area, and that was that. It was only after 15 minutes, when I asked what I was waiting for, that they said I could leave.
I don't think the reception team want to be seen as 'not very good', but they would benefit from training and understanding customer service. Dealing with reception on the first day will probably remind me that despite the good things with the hotel, that there would be better options, if I was to return to Sharjah.
Staff are friendly ,,i feel home :))”
Staff/family oriented/clean hotel .good service
I like staying in Holiday international,very clean and have good service and great staff,,the only thing i don't like is that they make you pay for the internet in the room....that should not be like that.
location, value for money
none that I can list
The hotel is a 4 star hotel near the lake that is at the centre of Sharjah. It isn't on the coast but near to the new souks. Pleasant walks around the lake in the evenings, joining many of the locals, and it's only a 10 ninute walk to the souk. The main museum area is 30 minutes walk away, 10 minutes by taxi. The hotel is 30 minutes by taxi from Dubai airport. Services in the hotel are very good, comfortable room, all rooms have a balcony, some looking over the lake,there's a cafe/breakfast room downstairs, convenient room service and very helpful staff.
Family Relaxing Hotel”
My family enjoyed the holidays we could buy several item and stuff since all shopping area were very closed to Hotel location beside waching Shiekh Khalid lake from the room
we have enjoyed as well Hotel facility SPA and steam
Most of commen restruants are located beside the Hotel
The hotel locatis is perfect and all facilites are availbole.
The prize of the hotel comparing with room size is not woarthely and that is due to very limited space in the room.
