Pros & Tips: (a) Room was clean. Coffee & Tea was supplied. (b) Express check-in & check-out, but on check-in we were handled by a very disinterested "Leena" who made us feel unwelcome, and "shooed" us away with her eyes when she was done with us. The lady who checked us out was very pleasant. (c) 100m to Mall of... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable, had basic essentials eg fridge, tv, desk, light, nice bathroom. Wifi is free in the lobby but extortionately priced if you want it in your room. Breakfast is ok, need to pay extra. Staff are helpful, location is good, barely 5 minute walk to Mall of the Emirates. Has lifts and is a pretty new... More

Upon arriving at the hotel, the receptionist informed me that I cannot get a room with two beds as I had booked, but a room with a single bed, which was quite inconvenient since I was traveling with a friend. The breakfast was reasonably priced, but there wasn't a wide selection of food. There is definitely room for improvement there.... More

Nice, cheap hotel next to the Mall of the Emirates. The rooms are kept clean and the staff is helpful. The rooftop pool was a nice oasis when you want to get away from the city for a while. The breakfast is good and at a reasonable price. On the downside I have to say that the wall are ridiculously... More

A very nice hotel offering value for money. The staff are very courteous and always have a smile on their face. The rooms were clean and compact. Service was good. Not a lot to complain. Book early to enjoy price advantage. Accessible to the Metro, mall of Emirates. Good eateries around the place. Definitely a recommend.
