We were three of us and stayed for 6 days. The executive room was quite large, spacious, clean, comfortable and luxurious with two queen beds (each large enough to sleep two), good quality toiletries (Gilchrist and Soames), linen and coffee. Breakfast was awesome with amazing variety and selection causing us to gorge and stuff ourselves. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It is definitely a luxury five star hotel. Most of all, the hotel is very well located - just 3-5 minutes walk from the Al Rigga metro station (its quicker if you cut across the car park) and Al Rigga road which is one of the main roads and has many shops and restaurants. The Al Ghurair Mall is just 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel - and has Max and Splash stores in it - which I found to be great value for money - unlike the foreign brands in the more upmarket malls. So is Al Safadi - an excellent Lebanese restaurant with reasonable prices. The restaurant Handi in the hotel also has very good food but its a bit expensive. Within two minutes walk of the hotel are three mini supermarkets. There is a huge Carrefour supermarket in the Diera City Centre Mall. Al Rigga is a nice busy area with people, couples and families bustling about till late at night.
We checked out many places and concluded that Diera is the best place to stay in Dubai - but you should stay close to the Al Rigga metro station, which is on the red line - so that you can easily get to Dubai Mall, Mall of emirates, Jumeirah, Diera City Centre Mall (which is just one stop or Dhs 2.50 from Al Rigga) etc. From the hotel we could easily get taxis to take us everywhere - along the creek in Bur Dubai which leads to the Meena Bazar, to the Gold Souk and spice souk, to Al Karama market (about Dhs 18), to Dubai Mall (about Dhs 32.00) to Mall of emirates (about Dhs 55) and airport (Dhs 15).
