We enjoyed our stays at the hotel - both going to London and coming home from London - the staff were very friendly and efficient, the hotel cool and welcoming and the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good and varied and the cafe in the hotel foyer provided great coffee and sandwiches.

Water in the bathroom was unbearably hot. A bucket & mug was provided. Problem was not solved as the cold water came in very small quantity. A cup of tea served on arrival for AED15! Outside it costs AED1.

Dear Sir, We thank you for your stay in our hotel. We are sorry that the water in the bathroom is very hot which was very unusual because we have water-chilling machine which cools down the city's water supply in the summer. We agree that a cup of tea is slightly more expensive than the usual you find in the... More

We stayed there for only 24h before our main destination so it didn't matter that much how good or bad the hotel was. Anyway, what I noticed was that the staff was pretty edgy. It might have been because of the late hour we arrived, I don't really know. The room was pretty fine, with a large bathroom and clean... More

As per title. I have nothing to complain about so that is a great start. I stayed one night. Service from the staff was excellent. Facilities were nice. Room was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast buffet was average. Overall the hotel was nice, but no better than many others I have visited.

I have small yet important complaints that can be improved for better image: 1- Internet was not available free of charge - upon inquiry we were told by reception of 84 dirhams per device per night which was disaster as we had 4 devices.
