This was my first time in Dubai. I have to say that I was impressed all the way around. I was there for only a short period of time and only wish I were able to experience more of the property. Next time I get to Dubai I will be booking this place again.

this is a good 4-5* hotel. The food has always been of a good quality and the place is always very clean. Nelsons Bar could do a lot better by removing the smoke because you only have to be in there for a short time time and all your clothes smell of smoke.

Arrival was seemless with car and bags being taken car of by helpful and friendly staff. Same for check-in. Room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Bathroom was well stocked and had seperate bath and 'rainforest' shower. Plenty of equipment including ironing board and iron. Good selection of TV channels too.

A hotel that is run efficiently and very personably at the same time. We used the bar and was very satisfied with service, beverages and the light bite that we had. Rooms comfortable - as expected. Where the hotel scores: staff, location and price. We will be staying here again.

Was there for only one night. The place is nice, modern and the room are very well furnished. The Italian restaurant is a must try. The staff is very helpful and smiling It was during Ramadan so the bar was not so active but it is a known spot in Dubai as well. Nothing to complain.
