I've accidentally stained the bed, and I was charged for damages which is equivalent to a night stay! (???)I have never encountered this in any other hotels! The Manager, Mr. Arif and the system needs a re-evaluation!I felt harassed,apart from bad service and bad faccilities I think that the Manager needs to be thought on how to treat clients in... More

We stayed at Grand Central for our Dubai stop over. This hotel is a little far out from the main touristy area, but there is a metro station close by which can take you to all the top attractions. We were lucky enough to have a free upgrade to a suite. Bonus. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff... More

I booked this hotel for a weekend getaway for myself and a friend. It had 4 star rating and was at an extremely good price. I am also very fond of the Deira district of Dubai. On arrival the receptionist insisted she kept hold of our passports because she needed to scan them. After several attempts to redeem them throughout... More

This hotel is located in the old part of the city in a crowded street. As a group I had no choice than to sleep there. I had a large room and bathroom. However soap was tiny and we had no magnifier mirror ( women love those) . Bed and pillow were too hard. There were NO available socket to... More

The stay was just ok just a typical hotel without any view. Its near the city, malls are accessible. No insects found in the bed, toilet still up to date model. Easy to locate. Good parking space and relaxing thai massage even for couple.

A pleasent hotel in the middle of Deira district at a reasonable price, near to shopping and a lot of restaurants. Very nice personal, good service, transportations to airport, shopping and beach free of charge. OK pool area on top of the hotel. Close to Al Rigga Metro station. Travel company in the reception for diffrent trips around Dubai.

We spent 3 nights here in November as a stop over from Mauritius to Glasgow. The hotel is very well situated and just a taxi ride from the Mall where we were able to start the red bus tour. Our room was very comfortable and cool, only thing was the air conditioner seemed to be set on one level that... More

The hotel is not bad to visit, the room are spacious and nice. The service and cleanness of the hotel does not qualify it for four stars. Three stars plus would be my rating. The breakfast and food at the hotel are ok but not that fancy breakfast you would expect on a 4 stars hotel. The location of the... More
