“Value for money accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I stayed in this hotel with my family first time in Dec 2010 and again few days back. The hotel is located near the airport but quite far from other main areas of Dubai. I liked this hotel for its clean rooms (though a little small), good buffet breakfast and value for money. Won't mid staying here again.

i was initially planning to stay at the citymax in al barsha but got convinved by a friend that bur dubai was better based on proximity to malls asides the emirates and dubai mall. It is clean, busy and it had a bar downstairs which took care of our "needs" The staff were helpful and courteous, the breakfast was great. It was also just 10-15 mins walk from the metro.

Room Tip: rooms from the 3rd floor up is usually good and less noise there.

This place has everything u need for your stay in Dubai! I recommend it and would definitely stay there again. The food was very good and the staff were very professional too.
The swimming pool on the roof was not the biggest I've seen but was great for an early morning dip. .

This is the second time I stayed in City Max Bur dubai. It was in March so the prices were certainly higher than during summer. Quality is still sublime, clean rooms, room attendants were really polite and I enjoyed my stay for the second time. The Hurdles pub is also a great place to watch soccer and catch a beer or two.

Free internet is OK well just OK but not very fast. The lobby is a little congested too...would prefer management abolish the free WIFI at the lobby and sell it at pocket friendly prices in the rooms. Enjoyed my stay though..will certainly come again in August.

For a long stay its affordable.Rooms are small but clean with all the basic amenities required.There are lots of options for food, but the hotel lobby can get quite crowded especially during the weekends, considering that they have 700 rooms there.Swimming pool is also good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I stayed in Citymax for three nights in first week of May. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very nice and helpful, but it feels a little small and crowded. Maybe it was because two Rigby teams with their families were staying there during this time. But after my stay in Malaysia and Thailand, I found the rooms a little small and tight.
It is an excellent budget hotel. Close to the airport but far from main Dubai, but luckily there is a Metro station about 15 minutes walk (according to Staff as I never used the metro), which can take you to all the main places of Dubai.
The staff are very friendly but the food is expensive. Ironically the Hotel is loaded with Snack machines, that sell the water and candies at a lower price than being sold at the Hotel Shop.
The Hotel has three restaurants, which is good news because there are not many restaurants in close vicinity. And the restaurants were a little expensive.
It is value for money and perfect for people who want to spend most of their day in Dubai malls and attractions and only come to their hotel for their night sleep.

Excellent hotel at goood location, friendly reception, maintained very clean and looking quite posh. For the hotel rate, it is quite worthy to stay on. Everything is available nearby and good for holidaying. One of the best hotel in Bur-dubai in all respects.
