The hotel is clean, with good price-quality ratio. Great advantage is that its near Mall of the Emirates, what you will find very useful. Crew is helpfull and kind, meal (we had breakfast) was also great.

Stayed at the CityMax Al Barsha for 8 nights for business purposes. All the staff are extremely polite and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. To top it off, the hotel is in prime location, situated opposite the Mall of Emirates.

Very nice hotel well located. From mall of Emirates you can get the big bus tour or the metro to anywhere. The hotel facilities are great, clean and comfortable. Good for the price. The hotel bars are also ok, and there are nice restaurants and convenience stores very near the hotel.
