My husband and I spent 4 nights at the hotel, as part of our honeymoon, with onwards travel to the Maldives.
We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning, security assisted with our bags, and check in was quick, though when we arrived at our room it was a smoking room, even though we had requested a non smoking room prior to our arrival, we were quickly moved to a non smoking room.
The rooms are modern contemporary in design, they were clean, beds were extremely comfortable, we did not want to get out of it!
The location was good, with a 5 minute walk to the metro (which is cheap, very clean and frequent) and the Mall of Emirates (again there is another metro station here). The only problem we found with the location, was some taxi drivers did not know the name as Centro Barsha, they knew it as Rotana Barsha.
We used the pool a couple of times, it was heated and had a life guard on duty, the views also at sunset were lovely.
At breakfast there was a good selection from continental, fresh fruit, cereal and hot breakfast, staff were pleasant and polite.
We used the bar on 2 occasions, it has a very funky design and there was a good atmosphere, prices were reasonable too.
The only down side of the food and beverage is the Deli, which is extremely over priced and the sandwich we bought was very dry and inedible.
On departure we were being picked up at 6.20am, therefore we asked if it was possible to get a breakfast box, as breakfast was from 6.30am. We were informed we could go into the restaurant as staff will be there setting up and it would be fine for us to have breakfast.
Overall the hotel is good value for money and in a great location for transport links to the main attractions of Dubai.
There are still smoking and non smoking rooms in Dubai, advise of your choice prior to arrival and r...
