We stayed at the first central hotel apartments for a week in April and could not have wished for a better experience. The staff were attentive and friendly, the rooms were clean and well decorated, and complimentary goods such as bottled water was always available. The kitchen in the room was small, but perfectly adequate for breakfast or preparing simple... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Dubai. We initially booked and stayed in Sharjah but paid to move to this hotel half way through our holiday as it had a better location. The hotel is located a short walk away from the metro station which takes you to Dubai Mall and to the tram stop that takes you... More

No problems with service and cleanliness of room. Kitchen facilities adequate as long as you're not looking to cook a lot (which you would not expect on a holiday) Did not use the restaurant at all so cannot comment on this. Main plus is location. Metro within a 5 minute walk and plenty taxis available along with many eating establishments... More

The hotel is rather nice, even if there is not enough light in the rooms and bathroom was rather dirty. It was rather complicated to find. I sent an email few days before to ask how to reach it and I never got any answer back... Then comes the check-in. The receptionists were looking bored and it took a long... More

The hotel is a pretty okay place. It is not exactly my definition of luxury, but it's not average either it's somewhere in between, the rooms on the 7th floor upwards preferable, ask for a room facing away from the construction site. The Voyage tours is extremely resonable priced. In terms of service the porters are very annoying. But the... More

The location of this hotel is a bit confusing. If you come by metro, get down at Dubai Internet City metro station, its a good 5 minute walk from there, this hotel was previously known as Auris and there is a new one come up just outside the metro station, so if you ask for directions, just ask for Hotel...

This hotel was extremely difficult to find on foot - arrived on metro expecting to find this hotel right next to metro entrance, but after walking around for ages not seeing any signs for "First Central" we finally asked directions from another hotel and they kindly guided as here. The lobby was nice and service was alright, although had expected... More

I and my husband stayed at First Central for 7 nights in the beginning of March 2015. Our stay was arranged from a travel agency in advance and we didn’t have any problems with checking in. The hotel is situated in Tecom, 5 minutes from Dubai Internet City metro station. A little tip – get a full day red nol... More
