We had stayed at the Dubai Marina area at the beginning of our trip to Dubai and decided to stay in a different area nearer to the airport upon our return from our self-drive trip to Oman. We chose this hotel due to its proximity to the airport and booked a Superior Room for a night.
Having already explored Dubai at the start of our stay, we had only intended a room to stay over for us to catch our flight the following day. Our initial check-in was done by an incompetent staff (we forgot to take down her name) who spoke in ‘whispers’ and who took ages in her task. When we arrived at our given room (No. 501) it smelled so heavily of smoke (although all rooms are supposed to be non-smoking) that we asked to be given another room. Thank God this was handled by another staff named Meg who was very efficient and professional. We were upgraded to a Deluxe Room (No. 601).
The room was larger than the Superior Room which we had seen earlier although the design was similar. It was luxurious and beautiful, the free wi-fi was strong and fast, the toiletries were of good quality and sufficient. Complimentary bottles of mineral water, coffee and tea were provided. There was also a hairdryer, iron and ironing board, safebox, bathrobes and slippers. 5-star in every aspect! We used the gym, which was sufficient for a decent work out. We did not have food or use the pool at the hotel and are therefore, not able to comment on them.
We had booked the room through the Agoda website and the rate was only a little higher than another hotel we had stayed at when we first arrived in Dubai. However, the facilities and comfort of this hotel far outweighed the other one! The additional pros for this hotel is its close proximity to the metro station (Deira City Centre) – only about 600m away, which is only 2 stops away from Terminal 1 Airport and 3 stops from Terminal 3. If you prefer to take a taxi to the airport, it costs only DHR12 to Terminal 3 from the hotel entrance. Opposite the hotel is a big shopping mall called City Centre Mall.
This will be our hotel to stay at in Dubai from now on. Brilliant and convenient in every way!
