The hotel is attached to the Festival City Mall which has plenty of shops, cafés, bistros, restaurants and a cinema. The airport is only about 15 minutes away by car... More

near to everything in Dubai and in the heart of festival city and its shopping, leisure and restaurants. food in the main restaurant is amazing especially the extra-ordinary buffet dinner which is never found else where.the only disadvantage is the small sized pool relative to the large number of rooms. I will come back again for sure

Stayed here for 5 nights and as always found it to be outstanding. Lovely spacious room, immaculately clean and fantastic service. The hotel is connected to Festival City Mall which is much bigger than it first seems....we only discovered this on the last day. The only negative is the location which is quite some way from all the main tourist... More

Me and my friends went to intercon to eat at Anise. Its a seafood's night and the group is craving for seafoods. We had a wonderful time because of great foods and also special thanks to the staff and a lady name Bev who seems to be tireless and would not see any stress during that busy night...absolutely A1 service!!!
