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

I stayed in First Central Apartments from February 21 to February 28. I found the room large enough, clean, with a welcoming look in its Arabic style decoration. Staff is extremely friendly and ready to help you in everything you may need. Maybe too friendly, sometimes, getting to annoy you with their insistence. The porter, a Tatar young man, is... More

We booked 2 nights in an executive 1 bedroom suite (myself and my husband and our 2 kids). We live in Abu Dhabi and were spending the weekend in Dubai. We only ended up leaving Abu Dhabi rather late and then got caught up in very bad traffic on the way due to an accident. I called ahead and asked... More

Breakfast was good but there were a lot of customers. The staff did do everything they could to keep everyone happy. Full mark to the staff Hotel was a bit... More
