Was on a trip to dubai with family and friends. After a tiring day of tour thought of relaxing and we got a perfect place to be in. All Day Dining & The Sports Bar is too good. But the awesome part was the personal touch of the service staff. Nru Singh & Omkar went out of the way and...

We made a booking for seven nights for my family and paid in advance but they were unable to travel due to visa issue so we approach the reception guy tharindu who was very helpful to make the booking cancel and refund with one night charge and even we stay there for one night also with the same cancellation fee....

Clean room, although extra pillows required as only 2 on the bed. Good hot shower, although the shower screen doesn't stop all the water and you end up with a very wet toilet floor. Fridge is very small and lucky to hold 2 bottles of water. breakfast is of little quality and lacking variety. Couple of good bars that serve...

I haven't stayed personally at the hotel, but I can confirm that is one of the best value hotels in Dubai considering its location: next to the Mall of Emirates, Metro, Bus stops. My friends stayed there every time they are coming to Dubai. Also I am living next to it so I am regular customer at their sport bar.

If you're on a very tight budget this hotel is definitely where you should stay. However; you know that statement "you get what you pay for" absolutely applies to this selection. Building seemed to always be warm and the rooms aren't immune to this heat so you might want to take that into account if you're planning on a summer...

So there are lots of mixed reviews here, some good, some bad. This is a very good 3 star hotel right across the road from the mall of the emirates and a short walk from the metro station. Prices are average. Staff helpful. Breakfast .. poor. Rooms were small, but comfortable and very clean. Fridge in the room and a...

Friendly stuff, clean rooms, smokers/non-smokers rooms, pool on the top for coffee break with view on Burj al Arab, very close (50 m) from Mall of Emirates. Breakfast is good. If you have a chance take a room above the 4-5th floor, because of the noisy club on the ground floor. The problem is that taxi service provided by the...
