I stayed for five nights and thought that the Smaya was pretty good although certainly the bathroom fittings needed some attention. Apparently they are working on this. Well it was very comfortable and as i was upgraded to a suite, it certainly helped! A very nice room.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Samaya is a good base for exploring Dubai, very close to the airport and the old city centre. Taxis are very good value, but make sure you get a Dubai taxi, not the "Hotel" taxis which are about three times as expensive.
The stay was great value. If you want luxury it might be better to look elsewhere, but you will pay for it! As a previous reviewer said, you get what you pay for! I didn't use the Hotel facilities much as i was out most of the time, but the pool is nice although rather small.
For those who are interested, note that the hotel is dry and has no bar. This can be amended by a 2 minute stroll to the Dubai Creek Hilton just nearby.
