My name is Mannan and while i love travelling and can very well understand the comfort of being having some one known in a new city. I will be happy to host (email hidden).
Ahlan wa Sahlan (You are welcome)
Reached Dubai midnight, asked if I needed to be picked up from airport. Stayed with mannan for 3 days he has a excellent apartment clean and spacious, he is a great guy and (email hidden), will be seeing him again in the near future. Was a bit new to Sharjah so he advised me of places I can go to eat etc, overall 150% satisfied.
For me it was great pleasure to stay at Mannan's place. He did many efforts to make my stay in Dubai as comfortable as possible: picking me up at Midnight at the airport, giving advices for the city and telling me lots of interesting things about the life in Dubai. It was a surprise to me that he also speaks German. Dubai was my first experience with Airbnb and it couldn' t have been better. Thanks a lot, Mannan!
We very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment. We are an active senior couple with lots of travel experience. Our flight from Mumbai was delayed and we were delighted that the host, Mannan, insisted on meeting us at the airport. We called him when we were clearing immigration, and he picked us up outside the main exit a few minutes later: What a treat!
The apartment is located in Sharjah, well away from airport and highway noise. The neighborhood is all tall apartment complexes, with commercial businesses of all sorts on the ground floor. Within easy walking distance (3 minutes) is a small shopping center with two coffee shops, a full-service grocery store, an ice cream store, and a McDonalds. It is also possible to walk into Sharjah to see the heritage center and souks there; it took us about an hour to get there, and we felt safe the whole way.
It is not feasible to walk to or from the closest metro station, though. Taxis will pick you up in front of the apartment and take you to the Al Qiyadah station in five minutes for about 29 dirham. Mannan provided us with a metro pass and we added credits to it from time to time. The metro works very well to get around Dubai. Returning to the Al Qiyadah station after dark is a problem only because there are no taxis cruising by the station after sunset. Although Mannan lent us a cell phone we couldn't get a taxi to come get us. Fortunately we were able to get in touch with Mannan and he came to pick us up! Another time, returning late, we walked to the adjacent police center and they called a taxi for us.
The entire apartment is clean and quiet, and everything works. We used the washing machine to get caught up on laundry, and made breakfast each morning in the kitchen. No issues with any systems at all. The wifi works great, but UAE blocks VOIP (like (website hidden)) so you can't make Internet phone calls. :-)
Mannan is a thoughtful and considerate man, generous with his time. One morning, he brought some Arab food to the apartment (from a neighborhood shop) to show us what it is. He also talked with us at length about the people, culture, and history of the area.
We recommend this apartment and Mannan wholeheartedly.
Mannan is truly a HOST in every sense of the word. I feel he went way above and beyond what would be expected. He not only offered a clean and wonderful apartment but made arrangements for me to participate in activities that I wanted to try. Mannan is very easy to talk to and very comfortable to be around. I would not hesitate to book his apartment again in the future. Highly recommend this host to anyone with NO hesitation at all! Thank you Mannan!
Mannan picked me right on time. There is a free phone in room just before exiting airport that you can call him. He said to cross street and wait at bus stop. My fault, I crossed two streets and saw him pass the correct place so I had to return.
Also, be sure to ask how to turn on hot water. Apt. Clean and wifi. Close by market and fast food. Would not hesitate to recommend or return.
Mannan is a reliable gentleman and speaks excellent Ebglish.
If there were more than 5 stars to rate a host, Mannan would definitely deserve them! Mannan took me under his wing and showed me an amazing time in Sharjah. We drove the scenic roads overlooking the ocean and visited shopping mall stopping for dinner along the way. He's the BEST Hosts.
I have nothing but good things to say about Mannan and his apartment. I couldn't have asked (email hidden) to stay (email hidden)e apartment is clean, secure and comfortable. Mannan is a perfect gent and someone I now consider a friend having stayed with him for more than a week.
Mannan was very co-operative. I felt just at home. He took every care of my comfort from staying in to staying out. Came to pickup at Airport. Helped me out with local traveling and local mobile. He was just great.
Mannan had to travel out of Sharjaha. He arranged my Timely Airport Drop.
In true sense, Host is VERY (website hidden) is Neat & Clean. Easy to reach malls, restaurants, ...
Mannan was just great. My experience staying at mannan's place was great.
Mannan and I felt instant connection and have become good friends since. My flight arrived 10pm at night so he picked me from the airport and took to his apt. saving taxi hassles. He (email hidden), helped me with trip planning and even got me an excellent price on a desert safari tour. He is very polite, a professional person and trusted me with his house keys even when he had to travel out of country during my stay. He gave me a guest cellphone to use during my stay which allowed me connectivity while touring. An excellent, trustworthy host.
