Very nice common area, very helpful staff, delicious breakfast different every day, comfortable beds, good price. However, our bathroom was old and needed renovation. I do recommend for budget travelers.

Nova is right in the centre of the Dubai city, front desks reception is excellent, rooms are quite large & affordable, the set of housekeeping staff that attended to my family not too friendly but generally staff are good/friendly. Nice place to reside when in Dubai for business/leisure trips. With the provision of breakfast, Nova stands out for early day's... More

THis hotel is situated in Al-Fahidi area. It's very close to Dubai Museum & nearby Market (jewelry, garments etc). It surrounds a number of Indian / Pakistan restaurants for economical food. The room quality was OK with all necessary arrangements like TV, Refrigerator, Safe Lock etc. WiFi was average. Hotel staff was good. Its a good money saver hotel.

I had to make an urgent trip to Dubai for business. The prices of hotels during holiday season were very high. So settled for this. Rooms were old and worn out in places. Breakfast wasn't very good either. Hotel is in central location otherwise. Attached dance bars and Spinners restaurant are good.

The only plus - good location. The city center, close to the subway and bus stations. Rooms require good repair, especially the bathroom. We stayed here for a week with breakfast , so European is difficult to choose what to eat. Generally, local dishes. Poor and small range of assortment. At a time when we were mainly tourists were from... More
