I was impressed when I walked into the foyer. Since the hotel is hidden amongst other buildings you are not expecting what you get when you walk in. The receptionist was quick and efficient and had my bags delivered to my room immediately. The bar was expensive, but if you are in Dubai you have to expect that. I paid $25 USD for two drinks. The bar had an awesome band. The room was nice, but the bed was hard. It had a wonderful view of the river.
The breakfast buffet was a little disappointing for the price, $40 USD (for 2). Apparently there was no dress code there because these little league cricketers were walking barefoot! I think those kids received special treatment just because they were cricket players anyways. I will definitely go back again when I pass through.
