By far one of the worst hotel experiences I have had. Lets start at the airport, I asked the hotel to pick me up from the airport, they said it would cost 100 Dhirams I agreed but then said I had to pre pay for this and send my credit card info by Email!I declined to do so and agreed... More

After reading so many negative reviews I was quite nervous about staying here... I couldn't be more wrong! We arrived three hours prior to the check-in time, however were given a room straight away. We were also upgraded free of charge to a Deluxe Room which was wonderful! The staff were very helpful and the hotel was very well presented.... More

This hotel would have to be the noisiest hotel ever. The occupants of the adjoining rooms sound like they're in your room. There have a disco in the lobby, but you do not expect to hear the music in your room until 4am . Then to add more noise there is construction work in the neighbourhood. But again the noise... More

It is a great hotel, with very big hotel rooms - bigger than expected. Great service, welcome (alcoholfree) drink at check in. Nice breakfast buffet for a resonable price. Hotel has 3 different bars/clubs where you can get alcohol. Plus a small bar on the top floor next to the swimming pool. Good location. around 25 drh for a taxi... More

Stayed here for 5 nights - 5th to 9th January The hotel is situated next to a 24 hour building site. Until the build is complete there will be no respite from the noise. If you don't take ear plugs then you won't get any sleep. The reception area is beautiful and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The... More

The only good thing about this hotel was its staffs behavior. And I can say they try to fill the gaps in their services. What the hotel I started staying at, was a little bit different than the hotel I checked out from! (Just a little bit of difference let's say) 1- No bins in the room an bathroom!!! Solution:...

We visited over the New year period and found that this was the cheapest property I could find over this time. Normally I have found that that price of the property reflects the state of the property but this wasn’t the case with the Grand Excelsior. The hotel was clean, tidy and centrally located (5 minutes walk to the Mall... More

The room was great, the wifi was quite fast, the amenities provided are also very good. The staff is effective and courteous, but not the greatest in terms of service. The positive is the location: walking distance to the Mall of Emirates. All the other aspects, including breakfast are very satisfactory but nothing to write home about. I don't know... More

Booked a superior room and would have to say that we were pleased as the room was neat spacious with free wifi! Best thing about the hotel is it is just 5minutes away from MOE. Though we could hear the noise from the ongoing construction, we could not blame it to the hotel..

Stayed in Ambassador Suite in June 2014. Felt like a Queen.Its grand. Stay here for a royal experience. The hotel staff is very cooperative, they have good restaurants in the hotel and the location is happening. Worth a stay..:)
