We had a great stay here in Dubai. Our trip was short, only 4 days but each day we were delighted to return to our hotel room. We had a corner room that had a great view on the 11th floor. Check in and Check out were very quick and easy. The hotel is located within walking distance of the... More

My husband and I specifically requested a non-smoking room booked months in advance but unfortunately that request was oveoverlooked. The room that was provided for us smelt horrible and completely saturated with smoke. Despite our best efforts in asking for a different room, 'nothing could be done'. Despite trying to air the room out, all of our clothes were marinated... More

As others have commented, this hotel is definitely NOT 5 star. It is more of a 3 or 3.5 star. Rooms are very small and outdated. Probably will not stay here again and I was surprised that the travel sites continue to list this property as 5 star. If you really want a five star hotel, book with a recognized... More

The hotel is good, it's absolutely not a five star hotel. My score for the hotel is 3 of 5 stars. The smell in the lobby is a deal breaker for me. It was so bad that i had to hold my breath every time i went to/from the elevators, thats for 7 days! I can not recommend the hotel... More

We had a room on the 11th floor facing the creek and the Burj Khalifa. We loved walking along the creek checking out the boats. Not a lot of tourists around which we liked. Obviously not a 5 star hotel but for the price we paid, we got what we expected.

We have booked on internet a standard room for 5 nights. At our arrival, we have been upgraded to a suite and didn't tell us there is any additional cost. The suite was large but the bathroom was awful. The shower was leaking everywhere and becomes like a swimming pool. Just in front of our door there is water leakage... More

The location was very nice to many of the local attractions. It is about a 5 minute taxi ride to the gold souk area and a 30 minute taxi ride to the marina area. We arrived late at night, around midnight, to be told they didn't have any nonsmoking rooms available with a double bed. I know preferences aren't guaranteed,... More

Samaya is a nice place to stay. The hotel has nice rooms and excellent buffet(breakfast). The hotel is near most of Deira's shopping malls and Dubai creek. The main drawback from my experience was the unfriendly reception staff. The reception staff were inhospitable. At one point I requested the reception staff to assist me to call my travel agent and... More

Staffs were alright. We booked for a non smoking room but the room was just the opposite. We called the reception explaning the situation but Michelle could have been bit helpful. She replied back explaining that we didnt request while we booked. I would not give 5 stars for it. 3 would do. Other than the receptionist (Michelle) stay was... More

This hotel may have been 5 start when new - things are falling apart: broken furniture, broken mirror in the bathroom, carpet should be changed. They even ran out of toilet paper on the 3rd day. I think the rating should be a 3 star at most. The location though is good near the airport, malls and train station.
