I have been staying at this hotel for various periods from 1988 until now. During that period it has had various names including Radisson SAS, Sheraton Hotel, Sheraton Apartments until the current title Khalidya Hotel (locally still known as Sheraton Khalidya). My wife and I really like staying here and generally stay for 2 1-2 months or longer, but it is equally good for a shorter visit.
Yes, it is an older property, but we keep coming back because it is convenient, comfortable and good value plus as noted by other reviewers the staff are pleasant.
If you are staying for a longer period do try and get an Executive Suite with kitchenette area, and of course a Corniche View it is worth the extra cost (separate lounge and bedroom area) it for the extra space and convenience of having cooker hob for the occassional home cooking. If you are a family you can also esily get an extra bed in the lounge area.
Key plus points are
Location - 5 minutes walk from the main beach, handy for supermarkets and easy to grab a cab to get anywhere,
Comfort - one of the most comfortable beds ever!
Spacious - older property = bigger rooms,
Staff - experienced and friendly and if you have a problem they will sort it.
Ok some of the equipment and furnishings in the common areas are worn, but who spends much time in those areas??
3rd Avenue Pub on the ground floor, could be very pleasant but spoilt by the absence, or ineffective air cleaning system - the air is always loaded with smokey atmosphere even when the place is empty, but you have a choice plenty of other options in the city, just a walk or cab ride away
