As the name says, it is an express hotel.
- Rooms were clean.
- Comfortable beds with both options of firm or soft bed.
- room lighting was lower than the standard dim lighting so that it was bothering.
- Morning breakfast buffet comprised of: 3-4 types of cereals, cucumbers, both black & green olives, labnah, olive oil, eggs (either boiled or scrambled), you would find tomatoes next to the cucumbers on the days that had scrambled eggs, Sausages, hash brownies or baked beans in red sauce, croissant, danish, brown and milk toast, Lebanese(shami) bread, 2-3 flavors of jam, honey, chocolate danish, plain croissant & cheddar cheese. The amazing thing about that buffet, is that they had their coffee machine and you can have your espresso for free; which is a quality I didn't see in 5-7 star hotels. You can find slices of oranges and grapefruit in addition to orange, pineapple and a 3rd that I can't recall. You could ask for other types of eggs, I was told it would cost AED 20 (approx. USD 5.4), II didn't find the cooked scrambled eggs tastey and hence was tempted to order the omelette. If I have missed anything, I dont believe it was worth mentioning and hence didnt stick in my memory :).
You will have breakfast for sure, but dont expect much than the mentioned. I used their gym 3 days out of a 5 days stay and only once had 2 other individuals apart from that I was the only occupant.
- The hotel service is a 3-4 star.
- room cleanliness is a 4+ star
- room standard is a 3-4 star; for an example; the TV is the old box TV with a ridiculous reception that watching would be a sight pollution. Not a TV person, so didnt care to ask for a corrective action.
- Thin walls.
- Hotel is a 5-7 mins drive to Dubai Mall, 15-20 mins drive to Mall of the Emirates, I think around 20 mins to Atlantis, so it is quite close to the action. Did not use any kind of transportation except for my car, hence cant help you there.
- All that said is one thing and Mr. Yousef is a totally different thing. He literally made our stay in the hotel special. We were getting a 7 star quality and grade treatment from Mr. Yousef. His skills are a huge asset to the hotel and I believe that 6-7 star hotels would find him an add on. His multitasking and managerial skills made things seem so easily handed and with pleasure. He even somehow managed to enhance the room service to the extent that an 2 day preceding issue was fixed from the time I moved from the lobby till I reached my room in the 3rd floor just because he was informed with the case.His thoroughness and promptness made our stay very tempting. To be fully honest, my loyalty to that branch has been granted only because of Mr. Yousef.
