“Rude Front Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

This Hotel belongs to good chain of Hotels, still I wonder how they are not giving proper training to their front staff who are rude in talking,misbehaving, they think they are obliging by providing rooms to passengers, instead of greeting the arriving passengers.
Their check-in and check-out procedures take at least half hour each, they think nothing of the passengers time.
Otherwise the positive points are in house Indian restaurant, Good breakfast.
The rooms are standard rooms with all usual amenities.
The nearest metro station is about one KM from the hotel.
From some of the rooms you can see the sea and ship activities.

Room Tip: Opt for the rooms at higher floor as the Disco music at Mezzanine floor is very noisy and it goes on...

Very good hotel. Amazing breakfast. Metro station ( AlFahidi ) is near approx 7 min walk. Rooms were very spacious. Only disadvantage is that in this era, you are being charged to use Internet and wifi facility.

Even if its only a three star hotel, for me, the rooms are good. We booked a deluxe room and it is good for its price. It is close to the Bus station so you it is very convenient for us.

Also to mention the receptionist at that time, Ms. Dianna, she is very friendly and always smiles to the guests, which is very good.

Nice clean hotel, very good interior, nice bed, nice view from the room, all u can say is a good 3 star property.
but, as mentioned by several other peoples, yes the staff are rude, dont bother to reply properly,complimentary breakfast was ok(not much choice), nothing much to help u nearby from hotel.
Thouch u can pick this hotel for nice and clean rooms only.

The hotel is located on a busy street of Bur Dubai. Our stay here was okay nothing much to add to it. The rooms were okay, well maintained and cleaned. The breakfast was also good although they could improve it by having a variety instead of repeating the same everyday.
Generally the hotel is good and the services are also good.

NB. they will charge you for any bottled water that you consume in the rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms from the fourth floor on wards are better since they have a club at the mezzanine floor.
