“Not a very good place”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Eureka as the name goes really doesnt give you that feeling. We had to stay here because our travel agent put us up here. We had arrived early (about 9am) only to be told that there are no rooms available and we need to wait until 2pm to check it as that is the hotel policy. After a little chit chat, we were told that we can check it at 12noon...after requesting them again that we had early appointments, we were asked to pay 50% of the room charges for an early checkin. Finally they ask us to pay USD$55 for allowing us to check in at 09.30 hrs!!!! The website states a rate, the front office displays another rate & finally when you go into your room, you will find totally another rate! Very ridiculous... Added to it, they wanted us to pay 100% up front... again unlike many other hotels that we had stayed in. The hotel looks ok from the outside, rooms are quite small with literally no space to walk around. While the rooms are clean, it still needs a make over as paint has come off in many places. Breakfast is not very good. Would advice you to check out the place before you book or check in!

I stayed at this hotel, not out of choice, but rather because I just needed somewhere to rest my weary feet and bags during my whirlwind shopping stop in Dubai. It is very noisy, as it has not 1 but 2 clubs in the hotel.One is an arab club and the other an indian one - both types of music are very different and clash! Fortunately I was only staying for the day, I managed to get some sleep in the day. They have a great room service menu.My TV didnt work, but at least they had a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport. They also had a complimentary shuttle to and from Deira City Centre. But you have to pay for wifi.

I stayed 6 days in this hotel. It's clean and has good decoration. The bad thing is the rooms are small and the bathroom are very small. It has swimming pool and gym but they are very small. The hotel Resturant is not very good but it's cheap. Its budget hotel at the end. Costed me 300 AED/night.

I really enjoyed staying in Eureka Hotel. The hotel was good, clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They treated us very well during our stay. Their shuttle service offers free pick and drop service. There are plenty restaurants near by but the restaurant in the hotel was great. The food was fresh and very delicious with lots of Persian food on the buffet…very tasty! We even met the chef and what a great man, very nice experience. I highly recommend Eureka without hesitation.
