Highly affordable budget hotel which surpasses all expectations from a budget hotel. Very neat and clean rooms with very decent breakfast. Staff is highly courteous and service quality is just too good - should be on your radar if you are a value seeker traveller !! Just right beside the Mall of the Emirates

We arrived early hours of morning after a long flight. The hotel has a night club and during the check-in process it seemed as though room/s were purchased for the night! On getting to our room we had to get room service to bring in toilet paper then a repair man to fix the leak in the ceiling. We left... More

I booked this hotel for nearly 17 nights but checked out after two days as I was not too impressed by the property. The rooms were really small. The only good thing about this hotel is that it is located almost opposite to MOE.
