Great location to Mall, metro etc. Excellent value for money and very clean comfortable rooms. If you're after luxury find somewhere else but... More

Very good hotel. Small rooms, but the location makes up for it. Next door to Mall of the Emirates and metro. Staff very welcoming, particularly Shakir in the coffee shop. Loved his magic coffee. The pub on the ground floor excellent, especially if you are a sports buff.

Visited here for drinks only, the bar was busy and it was round the corner to our hotel which didn't serve alcohol so was nice to have a stroll here. Beer prices were reasonable for Dubai standard, staff were friendly and table service was good. This is a sports bar and there were several TVs with different sporting events showing... More

I was initially worried as it is 3star and some people complaint in reviews that their clothes were stolen. It is located across Mall of Emirates and walking distance to metro. You sure will hear loud engine revs from Ferraris and Lambos since hotel is by the mall. Rooms are small but just ok size for 1-2 week visits. AC... More

Mall of emirates and quite good eating joints just 50 meters away from your hotel, trust me you can't ask for a better location. I went there with my girlfriend and we stayed for 4 nights.
