“Wonderful budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in Mid May with 2 young boys. For the cost of the hotel, this worked perfect for us. The kitchenette worked wonderful to make quick snacks, like instant oatmeal and Mac n cheese. The pool was nice, we didn't spend tons of time there, but when we did, all was good. The concierge helped us with a couple tours we wanted to take. We did take a taxi back to airport, which was cheaper than their shuttle. We had actually booked the shuttle, but someone else took it, Thankfully!!! Breakfast was ok, very similar everyday, and as far as hot dishes, I never really saw one that was extremely appetizing, but I always managed to find something to eat. Some comments refer to a stink in the hallway, but I think it is just residents cooking curry. Not a big deal, you don't spend your day in the hallway. A HUGE kudos to their housekeeping staff. We had dropped 50USD on the floor prior to leaving, we argued all day while we were out as to what happened to the $50. We came back to find it neatly placed on our desk. Amazing honesty. I would definitely stay here again if you want to save your money for activities and have a clean, simple place to stay! Worked great!

We stayed in Mar 2014 in a studio apartment - which was great. The room balcony had a amazing view of the dubai skyline.The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was serviced everyday and towels also changed. The facilities in the room and kitchen were all in good working order. It would have been better if there were more utensils in the kitchen.

We used gym, swimming pool and sauna - all were excellent. There were ample sunbeds and towels available. There are amazing views from the pool roof top.

The hotel is10 mins walk from the metro station. The supermarket is only 2 mins walk away. The hotel has shuttle service to most of the tourist places that drops you off and picks you up from different areas of interest several times a day for free. Also, there was free WIFI available in the lobby area.

i would recommend this hotel if you are looking for value for money. i did not get to get a feel of the area but the apartments were spacious and clean and would made an excellent choice if you just need a place to use as a base and spending most of your time doing sight seeing. the only thing that could be improved if they could change the sofas in the living room as they did look a little tired. other than that as i said it is a great base and excellent value for money.

We checked in early in the hotel and got the room keys instantly even though the check in time was stated as 2pm. The hotel is very big, clean and room size is pretty big with attached kitchen and bathroom. Room has sofa chairs, small dining table, dressing table, big sized bed, 2 almirahs to keep our stuff and electronic safe along with iron and ironing table. Overall very good. The kitchen has fridge, induction cooktop, pop-up toaster, basic utensils to cook, washing machine and daily free supply of tea, coffee, milk kit to make u comfortable. The hotel also provide complementary 2 water bottle at the time of check in.

Hotel Facilities - has free full sized gym, big pool access with b'ful dubai downtown view, steam sauna searately for men and women and Free WIFI in lobby. The hotel also offers free air cnditioned bus/shuttle to most attractions with free pick and drop as well, it saves you lot of time and money itself.

Staff - hotel staff is very nice, gentle and more than willing to help you with any requirement. Most staff is asian and speaks hindi very well.

Location - hotel is 1 Km away from nearest metro station (Al-Karama) but still a good location. from here you can walk down to Meena Bazaar also (2km) or take a bus from outside the hotel. Taxis are always available outside the hotel and most importantly the grocery store (Jyothis) is just below next building (less than 100 mts) which is a very big plus.

Overall our 4 nights stay at this hotel was very good, recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room, for a good view and fresh air.

I had been to the hotel recently. Great hotel with great staff. The rooms are great with all facilities needed by a traveler to make his holidays memorable. Staff are great with an great attitude to provide the best. To name specially Sanjeev, he went out of the way to make us confortable. An eager to serve and provide the best of hospitality with a smile on his face, that makes him different. I have been traveeling all these years and seldom I see an helpful person like him. Room Service and Food is awesome. I would like to come back again and again. Kudos and Best of Luck to entire team.
