It’s similar to what you would find in the large European cities (Rome, Paris, London) so don’t expect a large room or great views. The staff were always busy but friendly. There is a good bar which shows all the football and rugby matches from Europe and there is a separate nightclub. We only used the restaurant for breakfast, which... More

Located in a very convenient location (next to Mall of Emirates, good Metro connectivity). The room & shower were decent, however a little smaller than I expected. Amenities were good, however, even water was charged after the first 2 bottles. We stayed 4 nights, and had to buy water from that exorbitantly priced vending machine. Had to take a room... More

Hotel is located at very good location very near to mall of emirates. Better connectivity to metro station and centrally located of dubai. I am giving 4 star for the only reason of cigarette smell in the entrance.

Stayed for 4 nights. No complaints. It's a solid 3 star hotel that gets 4-5 stars from guest reviews. My staff encounter was positive. I opted-out of maid service during my stay. It's close to the Mall of the Emirates (which has Metro access) and quite a few restaurants are within walking distance - a few of which are quite... More
