“A value for money 3 star!”
Reviewed 3 January 2011

Located in Bur Dubai, this is one of the many 3 star hotels along the stretch of Khaleed Bin Waleed Road. The closest Bus Stand is less than 5 minutes away (by walk - Al Ghubaiba Bus Stn) and the Metro (Rashidiya Line) is approx 2-3 kms away!

We chose to stay at Highland City based on the reviews here and weren't disappointed one bit! The rooms and the bathrooms were very clean and most of the staff were very courteous and helpful. Yes, the continental breakfast is not all that great but we were surprised that they also had an Indian spread for breakfast for the entire period of our stay, not sure if this is available throughout the year though.

Like the other travelers who have reviewed this hotel mentioned, there is quite a bit of noise from the hotel's Night Club located on the Mezzanine floor, None of us lost sleep over the noise, probably because our rooms were on the 4th floor but am sure it will be a major inconvenience to guests allotted lower floor rooms! I would suggest you specifically ask for a room on the higher floor to stay away from this noise!

For the Indian/Vegetarian specific travelers, this hotel is operated by the Sarovar group of hotels who are an established brand in India, most of the staff are Indians and their hospitality is very good! There are also quite a few Indian restaurants around this hotel, the closest being Rajdhani, just a few hundred meters away.

WIFI Internet is available but on a chargeable basis, I paid 40 Dirhams for 24 hours of usage with a 3 day validity, fair price! This hotel is also equipped with a pool located on the top floor!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and had absolutely no problems, I recommend this hotel!

Much better than we expected, the rooms were big and well furnished with a flat screen and we got an absolutely good deal with expedia compared to their rack rates.
The receptionist was not too friendly but the rooms made up for it.
The train station is 10 dhrs away but apart from that, I would definatel definately stay there again, in fact i have recommended it to many other friends and clients

We booked the hotel through a travel package and werent sure how the hotel will be. The check-in was swift and smooth. Although the place is a bit noisy with their in-house club, the rooms were cozy and had Indian TV channels (which we liked:)) They also had a big and tasty breakfast spread- which was again moslty Indian. And somehow most guests there were also Indian- not that I had a problem with that.. All in all we had a great time there and were really tired when we came back in the evening- good place to relax and total value for money!

It is located in the center of Dubai shopping area.Everything is close by with in walking distance. The rooms are comfortable with good room service. The breakfast spread is bad. Same stuff everyday and a nightmare for veggies as Non-veg food stuffs are clubbed together with veg food. Same fruits everyday. The hotel's nightclub is noisy and is a notorious pick up point.
