Check in was pathetic. Had to wait with 2 year old infant. Was being offered top most floor which was very hot in spite of air conditioning. Room was clean and much much better than Bur Dubai branch. Room service was responsive. Porter was the best employee of the hotel.

Stayed here for two nights on a boys golfing trip. Rooms are small but adequate. Check in and check out OK. Breakfast cheap but nothing to write home about. Better options in Mall the the Emirates just over the road. Suggest to ask for a high quiet room rather than one facing the traffic. Car park is not very big... More

Nice hotel, great location for those who loves shopping, pleasant staff. The only little problem was bad smell in lobby at evenings. As we arrived 2 hours before check in girl in reception resolved everything and took us to our room.

It is customary in Dubai for hotels to require you to give them your credit card and allocate a certain amount of money for incidental charges to your room. However, they do not actually charge you card for anything you did not actually spend at check out. At this hotel, the idiot working the desk was completely confused. I allocate... More

I spent a few days here when in Dubai for work. The room was suitable, and comfortable. It's not a luxury location, but an affordable nice hotel. The breakfast buffet offered several different options and was always enjoyable. It's right next to Mall of the Emirates, therefore easy to get on the Dubai Metro if desired. Cheap to get around...
