Location is practical for a day transit. Big room, friendly staff, and affordable price. However, I did experience a small inconvenience when asked for taxi from the doorman. He got me a taxi with no meter to Burj Al Arab. Hate it when it happens to me. Even more annoyed cause when I took a taxi from Burj Al Arab... More

It is a very good basic hotel. Nothing extra spectacular just have all your basic needs. Free WiFi was a plus. Breakfast buffet had a lot of options. Overall a good value if you are a transit passenger spending the night.

United Airlines butchered my flight and they put me up here. Really good buffet! Close to the airport and the shuttle ran every half hour. Unfortunately the place reeks of smoke but then again it's the ME and is to be expected!
