it's a nice place to stay at in Dubai and great value for money. It's right by the Mall of the Emirates, the metro is on the other side of the mall. The club downstairs has an awesome band performing live music. The breakfast offers variety, some dishes vary every morning. I wish there was a door or a shower... More

Good and value hotel if you are in Dubai for business. Comfortable beds and nice staff. The location is quite convenient since you can walk to the Emirates Mall. Don't expect any luxuries in your room or in the hotel amenities. Both pool and gym are quite small but they do the work. I will not stay here for a... More

This is a pretty good hotel. It's a 2-3 minute walk from the Mall of the Emirates (and another 10 minutes through the mall to the metro station). Room size was adequate, as was the gym. All the chairs surrounding the pool were full the three times I went up there. I didn't eat at the hotel as there are... More

Clean, tidy and central location. My wife booked 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is a good start - ample variety. Transfers all day to the Dubai Mall. The only negative was that our room was smallish, but no big deal as we only used it for sleeping. Very helpful staff. Nice pool. I would go back.

Best part of this hotel is its location, its just at walking distance from Mall of emirates. I stayed here twice and found it very economic and rooms are well maintained and clean. I like their sport bar Huddle, one of my favorite place for watching sport while having a drink. Overall a good budget class hotel.
