On check out they attempted to charge me 1.5 dirham per minute for local calls. This is a rip off and it should be mentioned... More

The staff that clean the room don't even change the cups in the room. When I asked them to change, he just went to the bathroom and washed it with... More

Nice large rooms with a good toilet, cannot open the curtains as another apartment window is in front. so no view. 4021 room has a noise of water running in another room, woke me up in the night. The staff is very helpful. Lots of eating places closeby.

As other reviews have stated, if you just want a place to crash, this hotel is fine. The breakfast was adequate, although their idea of English oatmeal is something to be seen (not eaten). The staff was helpful.

We booked this hotel through "Booking.Com" website on the Friday before staying a few days later. It looked nice from the pictures and had a roof top pool. We ideally was looking for Half Board, not knowing the area or anything but in the end the only price was for bed and breakfast. We were initially booked in a double... More

If you were in Dubai for sightseeing and were out most of the time and need the room for good rest and bath, then this hotel will suit you well. But if you plan to stay and enjoy you vacation at the hotel, you will not want to stay here. The room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. The staff... More

First, the bathroom, while emptying the bathtub it seemed that the bathroom turned into a lake with water all around. And to conclude the night in this room, I woke up during the night and some insects were rounding my pillow! Called the front office, housekeeping came and not even an apology! In the morning the reception asked me if... More
