4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

It is very close to the Emirates Mall & staff is very helpful. We don't face any issue from early check in to late check out. We never get a chance to have breakfast there so can't say about food. Rooms are spacious and included small kitchenette, washing machine. Bathroom is kind of small with no tub, if one took shower then it needs to be mobbed again. Overall very satisfied with location and service. Internet wasn't working in the lobby area.

I stayed at this hotel on September 2011.
There was no complains at all. Rooms were so clean and we liked the pools on the roof. Location is very good. It is in a walking distance to Emirates Mall. And right next to Metro station meaning you can travel all the way to any Malls in Dubai. There was nice small restaurants and shops very close to hotel.
Good luck

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side have better views.

This hotel is 5 minutes away from Emirates Mall, so if you are in Dubai for shopping then you are in the right place. The hotel is clean and the service is to a high standard, I stayed there 2 times and got upgraded both times without even asking. The rooms are clean and towels are changed daily.
The hotel offers free parking which is very convenient to whoever comes with a car.

We were on a business trip and we stayed in this hotel. The building looks ok not more for the outside. Upon check in they told us that we were upgraded to one bedroom which was very nice but when we entered the room the feeling changed. the room are spacious true but u can see scratched and marks on the wall in all the room, the floor was dusty and hair all over. The towels in the room had stained same as the bed sheets and pillows. the price of this hotel was cheap in comparing to some other hotels but minimum cleanliness should be there.
the only good things about that place is that it is close to Mall of the Emirates and the availability of an underground parking.

We booked a family sized apartment for upto 4 adults. The apartment was about £99 a day plus tax. We were actually given 2 full sized apartments with a connecting door. We had 2 kitchens, 3 bedrooms, a living room and 4 bathrooms. Amazing! The rooms were very clean and the beds made up every day. Staff were very friendly. There is a small corner shop across the road selling most things required to stock up a kitchen for breakfast cooking. There was a chinese restaurant and takeaway and a thai reastaurant and takeaway just 50 meters up the road. Also the Mall of the Emirates was about 10 minute walk away with every shop you could think of and lots of different eating establishments to suit all tastes. The Dubai ski slope is also in this mall. You can also get the metro from the mall to The Creek, the airport and The Dubai mall with the Burj Khalifa. All in all a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

We've had overnight stays in this hotel whenever we have an event to attend in Dubai... it was always a pleasant stay... not something to write home about but in Dubai where everything is ridiculously inflated, this hotel gives you what your money is worth.. the rooms are clean and big enough.. reception was always friendly and accommodating... they always allow us late check out...we havent tried breakfast (i'm not sure if they offer...) Al Barsha area is pretty okay as it's near the Mall of Emirates, not yet entirely inside the city (so you avoid the traffic and crowd) and also near the Palm Jumeirah..
Could be a bit hard to locate the hotel as Al Barsha Area (back of MoE) looks like a maze with tons of other hotels and streets that look similar (lots of roundabouts).. There was one night that even our taxi got confused in the area! I suggest you get the satellite version map in google and have the hotel's number ready with you.. they would be happy to give you directions...
