Booked complete package via Indigo Airlines. Howard Johnson was one of the options available. Arrived a bit early before the check in time. But the front office people were very polite and did everything to give us a pleasant experience till we got our rooms. The waiting area was also very nice. The room was brand new and was sufficiently... More

Rooms are adequate & comfortable in the 3 star category. AC controls though didnt seem to be working. Bathrooms were clean & well maintained with replenished basic toiletries. Breakfast had a decent & tasty South Indian selection of dishes apart from cornflakes & breads. A decent selection of Indian restaurants are also available within a radius of 2 KMS of... More

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. The accommodation was poor, the service was poor (especially the concierge) who were always in a bad mood. The food was absolutely terrible, I wouldn't have eaten the breakfast if it wasn't free... The pool was about the size of a big bath tub, and there was no free WiFi. You... More

Few indian restaurants... More

This used to be the old "Arif Castle" back in its day.....many a crew change we housed there. Was great then, and still pretty good today, although it has become less cosmopolitan. Room still good, rooftop amenities GREAT (except for lukewarm only jacuzzi temperature), steam and sauna BRILLIANT!!

Howard Johnson is a good option for all Indian travellers due to location of the Hotel. Good Super-market, Indian Restaurants & shopping place are 10-15 min. walking Distance. Even the Bur Dubai Bus stand is quite close by.

We stopped here for just 1 night transiting from NZ to UK, having never stepped outside the airport in Dubai before. We chose this middle-range hotel as near the sea and downtown Dubai with reasonable facilities. Arriving at the ungodly hour of 07:00 we expected to have to dump our bags and then go on a reccy. However, the staff... More
