So we land at Howard Johnson at 1am in night with an advance booking and they tell us that they don’t have the room that we booked available with them. The guy at the reception offers us another room on the second floor and tells us that they will move us to other room in morning. And hell begins! There... More

This is our second stay here, and an improvement on last year, at last some friendly helpful staff, a real plus point, last years were scary. In general most of the staff seemed much friendlier than last year. Again we had room on 6th floor. 603. Yes you could hear the disco, but just a low base sound, although on... More

The facilities at this hotel are very nice. The rooms are very tidy and spacious. The breakfast is good. The Wi-Fi is strong but not free. I would not book a stay for prospective employees, current employees or clients in this hotel. It has a very loud night club somewhere in the building and it can get quite loud. I... More

The experience started with a downhill trend. I'd booked a triple bed room but what we got was a standard double with an extra bed thrown in which made the room somewhat cramped.. But since it was booked through a travel agent in Bangalore, not sure where the screw up was. Let me get through the other 'negatives' first. There... More

The hotel has a very loud nightclub which bass you can hear up to the 6th floor and won't allow you to get a good night sleep! I knew of the nightclub from tripadvisor and therefore contacted the hotel in advance and asked for a quiet room which was also confirmed back to me. However, on check in I have... More

Stayed at the Howard Johnson as we thought it was a good chain after staying in one in the US. We were pretty disappointed, the staff were rude, and as mentioned check-in/ check-out takes 20-30min. A check in they wanted to keep our passports overnight for security checks which didn't happen anywhere else we have stayed in Dubai, and at... More

We paid around $320USD for three nights in March inc breakfast. We found that to be a reasonable price compared to the other places on offer, and the location was very convenient for us as we left Dubai via the alghubaiba bus station which is walking distance away. The rooms are nothing fancy but are reasonable size and fairly clean.... More
