Buffet breakfast is as great. Plenty of food choices. Coffee is wonderful. Location is a plus - walking distance to a big mall. Many restaurants around (although...

A good location or jumping off point to see the mall of Emirates and other sites. The hotel lobby is busy but the floors are quiet. After a long trip in India, I found my room very clean and comfortable. Also loved having the kettle, free bottled water, and fridge, all a plus
