Still took a chance to stay here after reading the reviews, it's not that bad what it sounds in the reviews. The reception staff was warm and friendly, rooms were neat and tidy. However the lobby smells if cigar, but over all a nice place. Manar mall is an added advantage...............

One of the worst hotels in my experience. Read the other reviews, this place is a dump. It is tatty, stinks of cigarettes, shabby, worn out and a poor excuse for a hotel. How anyone can state that this is a good hotel, I cannot fathom. We stayed on the third floor and were awoken by the thumping of a... More

I was booked into the City Hotel, Ras Al Khaimah by the company I was visiting and perhaps should have done a little more research before agreeing to the location. The hotel itself is fine although the furniture (which is dark and traditional) contrasts with the modern feel of the building itself. The good news: The staff are friendly and... More

This place is a dump. The rooms are nasty and smell like cigarette smoke. There was literally dried vomit/could've been piss?? in the bathroom from the previous occupants. What the hell? I'm not a light sleeper so the music booming from the upper floors didn't bother me too much. Great location and sweet staff, but not much else.

You get what you pay for. It is very basic. The rooms are old, carpets needed replacing 20 years ago as did the furniture. The staff were very friendly and we had a good end to our night in the 'City Lights' bar.
