Location - Just in front of Baniyas Square Train Station which is perfect if you are going around Dubai. There are lots of restaurants nearby as well. On the downside, if you're taking a taxi from this area it can be much of a hassle as there so many people waiting most of the time. If you call a taxi... More

Very messy at the reception area; room noisy at night until 3AM; holding passport as security for the duration of your stay; not having all facilities in the room as advertised; prohibiting visitors; blocked drainage. Wifi unstable. The worst experience was in the Arabic night club. One small bottle of beer, plus a plate of fruits and a cup of... More

The building is very old. The elevators are ancient and scary! The place is clean but bathrooms & toilets need renovation. The room I stayed in was very compact with no room for movement. Definitely not worth the US$ 100 I paid for one night. The room has connecting door to adjacent room and I could clearly hear my neighbours... More

I stayed here for two nights in July. The staff were very friendly. The rooms are small and tidy. I did not sleep for the 2 nights as there were bed bugs in my bed however, so I was up all night itching and went home with bites on my legs. When you walk out of the lift into the... More

Stayed there a couple nights, very helpfull staff with a very early check-in. Very poor breakfast, place a litle bit run down. One of the beds not prepared (but they came very fast when asked). MOST IMPORTANT.. Be aware one off the Staff members (Mohamed...I think?!), used privileged check-in contact details for harassalment purposes even after returned to my country.

This hotel is about 6 metro stations away from the Dubai Airport, and about a 2 minute walk from the Baniyas Station, you have a McDonald's and KFC within proximity as well as a very good shawarma restaurant behind the Gift Shop to your right as you exit for only 5 dirhams. Other than a broken toilet seat, the room... More

Nothing special or memorable about this hotel. I've stayed here a couple of times and the best point about this hotel is its location. The food.....lousy. But that doesn't bother me, KFC is just next door, and McDonald is across the street. The rooms themselves are pretty standard. Make sure you get a front facing room that over looks the... More
