Check-in was ok, I was upgraded to a so said "Junior Suite" which was in general only a very big room (50m²) filled with normal hotel furnitures. Prior booking I asked for high floor, I got 1/F. Next to the hotel was a construction side, the room had poorly sound-insulated connection doors to the neighbor rooms, the bath room was... More

Nice hotel with a beautiful foyer. Very friendly staff. Large clean rooms and large bathroom. Front desk staff were very nice and helpful. Although we arrived early at 9 am they gave us early check in which we never expected. Breakfast was very good with a good selection. Situated close to Dubai Mall and Ski Dubai which are only 5...

convenient location not far from mall of emirates and metro station. spacious clean rooms with the same bathrooms. decent breakfast. the only complaint is about the lousy sound insulation. don't forget earplugs if you don't like to be woken up at 7am by construction works nearby..

My short stay in this hotel provided so much comfort after a long trip. The hotel rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and gave my back a very restful break. The breakfast was Ok, though we were in a hurry because we came down almost few minutes before closing time. The hotel and its location... More

This place is terrible. It is in the middle of nowhere. My wifi didnt work ever on my laptop or phone. The air in my room wouldn't turn off and it was freezing. The restaurant options are subpar. The pool is nice and so is the gym. But I wouldn't stay here again. Customer service is terrible. My bathroom has... More

Check in employees very gentle. I found a kind albanian lady who also sopke a perfect italian and give us many good tips for a short visit of the town. Hal was gorgeous. The room was very nice: two large beds, well furnished and quite. The bathroom had old and not in good condition furniture.

The hotel is in a quiet area and is about a 10 minute walk from the metro. The only shops on the door step is a supermarket just along the street. The hotel itself seems to be undergoing a change from the Dowe Palace to Grand Excelsior, not sure when Sterling Hotels took it over. The rooms were lovely and... More
