As our power was out, we popped across the road to Citymax. Radha on the Front Desk helped us out massively and is a credit to the place. Room was functional and clean. Only smoking rooms were available, but there was no odour. Bed could definitely do with more pillows!

The experience was wonderful. The staff are very hospitable and friendly. The music band in the bar is awesome. Great relaxation after a hectic day of work. 24 hours restaurant service was always a great relief.

If you're more interested in adventures rather than staying in hotels in Dubai, then you'll have everything you need. It's rustic accommodation, but very comfortable, clean, friendly, welcoming, and affordable. Any requests are handled expediently, and the pool view is a delight. The aircon is killer cool, so no worries there and it's nice and central to shopping centres and...
