Was the worst hotel i have ever set foot in!! Was there 2 nites (2nd nite not by choice, cudnt get out og there fast enuf) was nothing like the pictures on the net so please dnt be fooled. Its not even cheap and cheerful - its a dump. Was filthy dirty, plastic curtains that didnt cover the windows, bathroom was disgusting (was too afraid to shower as the shower had mould on it), Hair in the bed, blankets so old and hard wud not have used them for a dog, didnt dare to eat there as it was SOOOOOOO dirty.

Also an old man died as the hotel would not get a doctor - twice asked by my husband as the old man was screaming and had messed himself. They left him overnite - only to be taken to hospital the nxt morning where he died.

Was a nite-mare i will never ever repeat.

Never got as far as the bar - the restaurant was enough lol. Was a real hell hole.

At least your husband has work :) The young lad who helped with our bags said they didnt treat their staff well. They even tried charge us 30td as a checking out fee cuz we were leaving early :mad: not a chance!! lol

Sindbad Hotel (like many I believe) have taken in many Libyan people so that they can recouperate/recover from injuries sustained during recent problems in Libya. Sad to see so many wounded people and one of their doctors who is with them stated that he'd lost his home in Tripoli and his family are scattered all over and for the moment he's not sure where any of them are.

Hi Orlandobird

Yes it is and very cheap too! I booked it to stay there this time for a month half board for the 2 of us for £536.00. When we arrived at the hotel on the 22nd June the receptionist said there was not many in the hotel and mainly locals would we like to move and upgrade to Golf Residence 4 star no extra cost.....Of course we said yes and its lovely will definitley come back.

Read alot of bad reports on the Sindbad but was willing to give it ago as its so cheap and its only really somewhere to sleep. Might book there again Sept.

Its the biggest dump ever and we stayed 2 nights (only because we had to confirm booking into the nxt hotel) was the worst start to a much needed holiday!! Please think carefully before booking. Its not even cheap and cheerful. We went to Royal Beach in Sousse after and have to say it was close in price and a much better hotel.

Was dirty, the blankets were like dog blankets. Shower and bathroom were filthy, toilet seat broken. Floors sticky. (makes me feel sick thinking about it) Food was terrible (not that we ate there cuz it was soooooo yuk) NOTHING was clean in this hotel. And to top it off an old man died the 1st night we were there - he was very ill and was shouting and walking up and down, he had messed himself and was obviously poorly. Hubby fetched someone twice but they just gave him water and left him. His friends came the nxt day and took him to hospital where he died.

Was the worst hotel ever and i will keep warning people not to go here!!

I agree with CP i had to book last minute has probs staying where we had booked and this was described as a sea front hotel in Pek lol what a joke stayed the first night and moved out never stay there again and would tell anyone on planning to they do it risking their health, dirty is an understatement. xxx Good luck there are many reasonable hotels to choose from xxxx
