I liked the hotel and the room as well. Reception guys are so nice and friendly. Just few steps from Mall of Emirates, Al Amoor resturant which serves Egyptian traditional food. So close.from Burj Al Arab and the beach just 10 mins by bus.Must try!

I had hoped to up load plenty pics- but for some reason can not get them up loaded to my new computer! Arrived from emirates terminal 3 at about 1am in the morning. It was very hot, and was pleased to get into the air conditioned reception area, that was thumping loud with a band playing in the bar- seemed... 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.

Al-Barsha is a good location, hotel is right in front of emirates mall. I didn't find it difficult to walk to the Mall or nearby Restaurants like Samarkhand, Sravana Bhavan, Baith Al Mandi, Student Biryani, and Pizzerias etc. But, it is a basic hotel. I recommend who ever books here, buy Soap, Shampoo and other necessities. Breakfast is good. Some... More

As our power was out, we popped across the road to Citymax. Radha on the Front Desk helped us out massively and is a credit to the place. Room was functional and clean. Only smoking rooms were available, but there was no odour. Bed could definitely do with more pillows!
