It was a nice hotel (inside) but surrounding with all construction (outside). The location was not convenience as you think, walked to the metro station around 7 - 10 mins. Don't suggest to go or leave the hotel by walk to the metro station with your luggage (take a taxi better). We had a nice room on the top floor... More

Check-in was so simple and stress free. The customer representatives were very friendly and helpful. The room was very accommodating, and the shower/tub was nice and clean. My friend was allowed to visit me with no problem. And there are ample restaurants in the area that you can walk to.

The only drawback that we see is its location as except Mall of Emirates everything was quite far from this location but thanks to Metro through which you can travel to anywhere.. One metro station was very near to this hotel from where you can take... More

This was our second stay in this hotel and we are happy with what it has to offer in terms of location and price. We only ever use the hotel as a base and all we do is return to sleep and shower. The rooms are clean and modern with very big, comfortable beds. If you want a central location... More

We stayed for 5 nights after getting a great price on Priceline. We chose this hotel zone and got this grand excelsior. Good location, 10 minute walk to Mall of Emirates mall and metro. Hotel is clean, staff is courteous. The big downside for us was the overwelming cigarette smell that filled the room even if we were on a... More

My sister and I stayed here for three nights in mid Fed. The hotel itself is alright. The check-in was ok, the staff were efficient. Not overly friendly, but dealt with all queries and concerns efficiently. The room was pretty big, and well appointed. We spent three nights there and were quite comfortable. The bathroom is huge too, with a... More

We were upgraded on arrival and appreciated the complimentary basket of fruit. It was a good room, lots of space, comfy bed, good wifi connection. The staff were very helpful, the breakfast (£13 ) had lots of variety but seemed a bit tired by 9.30 . But.....there was no electric socket near the bed ( required for a medical condition)... More

I had a bad start in this hotel. The reception was a mess, three people passed in front of me while I was waiting an I had to complain to get my check In on. The receptionist was unpleasant. My room in the sixth floor was located near the elevator, so I decided to use ear plugs. The room was... More
