The hotel has not lived up to my expectations. It aims to be high class but lacks style and service of better hotels. That's no problem, since this isn't a 5 star hotel. The problem is, that the hotel doesn't even deliver what it claims to have. Wifi is close to not existed, no-smoking rooms smell like smoke all day... More

Lights come from everywhere in the room you can't sleep. Furniture not clean. Bathroom floor and walls were ditrty. Bathroom has a super bad smell. Reception ppl attitude was the worst. they ask for deposit before even welcome you. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here for one night and actually enjoyed it. I got a good deal as I booked early and got a great room. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining soo much in other reviews. I arrived late and yes the night reception guy wasn't the happiest person in the world. After reading previous reviews I was trying to... More

The staff are friendly. There is valet parking. It has free wifi. And it is in a good location. The... More

The hotel check-in and check-out was very efficient. The staff were neither unfriendly nor overly friendly (as is often the case in the UAE!). It's easy to find, easy to unload/load the car right in front of the hotel entrance, and the valet parking is quick - I'd rate it above the nearby and slightly pricier Ramada in this regard,...

The Room was spacious, modern and the hotel is in good area of Al Salam Street. Nice Views of the Croniche Area and a Croniche Beach can be seen from the Hotel. Drawbacks : Slow Wifi, Non Working LAN Connection Checkin and Checkout was smooth but the Hotel Lift is too small.
