Not a bad hotel if you have a budget. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. The chinese restaurant has lovely food. Rooms are comfortable. The conference facilities are great as well. Not very far from Emirates mall and just near burjuman mall.

Room was okay but smelled of cigarette smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking hotel. Very noisy AC and this was the case in all the room across... More

Though located in excellent location,suites are overpriced. Free wifi and good breakfast. Service is above average. Easy check in check out. Should be priced according to season. Low season should be charged less. Bed should be replaced.
