Ditched Helicopter Award

I have just stayed in the Fawlty Towers Hotel of Dubai – The Seven Sands. When I complained about my room the manager asked:
“What do you want me to do? – they are all as bad as yours”!

I had to rearrange my booking at the last moment and my agent booked this as a 4 star hotel – I’d say it’s about 1.5 stars.
On their brochure and website they say:

“Extended Hospitality” – Untrue
“Fully equipped gym” – Untrue
“Coffee Shop” – Untrue
“Business Centre” - Untrue
“Complimentary welcome fruit basket” – Untrue
“Complimentary daily newspaper” - Untrue

The place is dirty, badly managed and a disgrace so a mega DITCHED HELICOPTER to the SEVEN SANDS HOTEL, Dubai
