I stayed in this property for 3 nights it was booked by a friend because of its location.as its nearby Dubai international airport.Rooms were decent,reheated food was served at times.There is loud music in night which creates a big nuisance for guest willing to sleep on time.In all its a typical budget class property with good location.

This review is for the new resaturant INDRAPURI only and not for the hotel as such... Good south indian restaurant ... We tried dishes like chicken thoran and beef kallil kothiyathu which were really tasty and spicy enough for south indians.. Overall experience was nice at the restaurant and recommended..
