Conveniently situated near to the Metro and not far from the International Airport this is a good base for a few days in Dubai. This is a basic hotel but reasonable value if you are on a budget. Beware of the noise from the Club.

I checked out same day i checked in because the service was bad and I felt i was in the most uncomfortable place on earth. I checked out same... More

Chose this hotel because of location, close to metro station. However, upon arrival, we were greeted with a sulky looking reception area person by the name of Christy. To be in that profession, someone who is friendly should be posted there, not a sulky looking one. First night we were so tired (after an 18 hour flight), but we did... More

Spent a night here, customer service was non-existent, shower was faulty...well at least the bed didnt buckle as i tried to sleep...operative word 'tried'. I was ready and up to leave at 7am, politely declining whatever breakfast experience they had lined up...I don't think ive checked outta a hotel so swiftly in my life.

Based on previous reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect but as I was here during the holidays, rooms were scarce, had no choice but to try this, and I'm glad I did. The front door staff was very, very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff didn't do a great job, and were pre-occupied with a lot of other... More

I was a bit adamant with some of the negative reviews but I decided to have my company book me there for a 2 week business stay. My flight was delayed and got there a day late, they still had my reservation and warmly welcomed me. Breakfast buffet was a variety of amazing foods I never got to eat any... More
