I booked this hotel two times, actually the best thing about it is the location it's opposite to emirate mall & the subway station. But also the hotel is neat & clean, food was quiet good , rooms are clean but small. Over all I recommend it for anyone

I visited maxx bar last week with my friends and the bar was fully packed. Very nice offers on drink but it's very difficult to get the drinks on time, Waited for 30 min to get the drinks. Food is very nice and at a resonable price. We really enjoyed the D.J, He played really well.

It is a clean, central hotel with good service, friendly staff. Espeacially good for short business stays. Has regular bus service for beach. Just opposite of Mall of Emirates, very nice spot for shopping and dinning.

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.
