We booked 3 nights in this hotel, as it was recommended by the airline company. We spent little time in the hotel itself as we were always outdoors. As we checked in , we were given an upgrading as the room we had booked was not available, but the receptionist warned us rather rudely that, shold we overstay by a... More

Highland City hotel,Dubai is in a good location,but service needs drastic improvement.North Indian restuarant food is not upto the hotel standards. Buffet breakfast is really good and worth the money spent. Rooms are airy but compact.The rooftop swimming pool is too small,probably a toddlers pool. Disco is too loud.

It was owned by famous Indian hotel group and so was oriented towards Indian tourists. Reception and hotel staff were efficient and polite. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and... More

Having said that this hotel was great. The hotel is in the older part of Dubai which is not a problem. There are some good eating places nearby which is a great... More

Hi, Would like to give a detailed review about this Hotel. The biggest negative before deciding on this hotel was the reviews down that the music played by DJ was too loud. But there was no DJ music disturbing even on second floor (were our room was). Not even on weekends! Not even for a minute! The sleep was quite... More
