1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2009

Bad customer service. Receptionist fighting with all the customers blaming on the booking agency. Manager nowhere to be found. Algae/Fungi in shower. Better/cheaper hotel next door. Bar on 1st floor - loud music from 9.45pm to 3.30 am - will not be able to sleep, the hotel vibrates with the speaker base.

If you can avoid it I would not stay here. Its OK for a quick 1 night stay if you are flying out early in the morning (as I was). They offer a free hourly shuttle bus to the airport for this pupose. I would be very disappointed if I was here for my 14 day holiday (I think my girlfriend would have actually cried if this were the case so fella's spend the extra £20 a night and get somewhere decent!).

Location is OK, its in Deira the (the otherside of Dubai Creek) which is close to the airport, Gold Souk and Bur Dubai (which has some places to go out in). Also not too far from Sheikh Zayed Rd either (15 mins) but far out from Jumeirah and the Marina nightlife (maybe 30-45 mins with no traffic).

Saying that the downturn in Dubai means that the traffic is not so bad anymore and for the first time ever there were taxis... everywhere, so perhaps location is not as important any longer! Taxi's are also very cheap here compared to UK and in Dubai (unlike Abu Dhabi) they will always use the meter.

Rooms- dirty, toilet was not clean although someone had gone to the trouble of putting one of those 'steralised' strips across it which was a joke. Shower was luke warm and no power whatsoever. Shower curtain stank, and bathroom was musty and mouldy in places. The rest of the room was very basic but bearable.

The nightclub is on floor 2 so stay high if you can as it will keep you awake if your a light sleeper.

One last thing, do not go for a massage, I made this mistake and after 5 mins of what I would call rubbing rather than massaging I was offered "extra's" which was not what I was after!!!!!!!

Overall, I would reccomend you stay somewhere else (perhaps try the IBIS at World Trade Center- same price when I booked for the first night of my stay and only 5 mins over the bridge so still okay for airport) but this was the cheapest room on lastminute the day I booked it... what do you expect!

They do not respect what they have posted in their website. Price at their website was 63 Euros per night but they charged me more than this price !!! I had booked my room directly by using the hotel website.

Sauna is too small.

No luggage room.

Swimming pool water was too cold.

Wireless internet is not included you have to pay almost 4 $ per hour to use wireless internet in your room.

Restaurant too small sometimes no table available and you have to wait for 5 to 10 minutes

I had a noisy neighbors and could not sleep.

A lively hotel situated in the centre of deirra, I stayed on the 3rd floor for 9 nights and most nights got in after the clubs at the hotel shut but if you are going for a quiet night at a hotel then this isnt the place, if however you are going to party and feel alive in a city then it fits the bill.

Close to everywhere and taxis are easy to get, close to the airport and shopping its a great place for a city break.

The buffet breakfast wasn’t great the same food everyday but it did a job and it’s a cheap hotel.

The staff are great very helpful and friendly

I and my wife stayed at K-Porte Inn for 4 nights. They refused to organize a pick-up at the airport even though I called them 12 horus in advance, because they require 24 hours notice! On arrival, we didn't have to wait too long (5/6 minutes) to get our room, which was on the 6th floor, so we didn't have any noise issues that others have noted. Hotel is in a location that is close to a smaller mall that has some decent dining options - Pizza hut, Papa John's, a nice filipino place, a nice iranian place, etc. There are a number of other 3-star hotels in the same locality. It is also just a few minutes walk away from the "Diera Bus Station" water-bus stop, from where you can take a water-bus across the creek to Bur-Dubai for Dhs 4. The downsides of K-Porte Inn - rooms are small, and quite bare-bones - no coffee maker even; we had to ask for an extra towel every morning - even though we were 2, there would always only be 1 towel. Also, at about 9 / 9:30 PM each night, we would come across women (likely hookers) hanging around between the hotel and the mall - they never bothered us, but it was just unpleasent. The staff at K-Porte are courteous, but just don't have enough information on place to see, etc. The free shuttle service to malls / jumeirah beach is useful, as you can use that to then take a cab to other places. All in all, if we were willing to spend more money and go to a better place, we would, but otherwise, it wasn't too bad. I am still appauled by how expensive hotel rooms in Dubai are generally - way overpriced in my opinion.

Stayed at the K porte luckily for only 2 nights early Nov 08, we wanted to stop in Dubai as a stop on the way to other destinations

The hotel itself is OK, a little dated but clean and rooms OK, the location is in the city close to a few little malls etc and close to the creek. A good Taxi from the beach area and the big malls but not a problem as taxi's are cheap enough, good walk to gold souks etc but very cheap in a taxi

Biggest problem and why I would never go back is the very loud night club on the 1st floor, its so loud all night, we were on the 4th floor and thought it was a TV in the room above - after about 4 calls to reception for them to get somebody to turn it down, it was only after 4 calls and a room change that they actually told us it was a club - got moved at 2am and had to pack our case at that time, moved to 5th floor and that was better but I would not take the chance

My advise is dont take the chance, go somewhere else

Hotel in a good location for the City Centre but difficult to walk to any of the attractions due to lack of signs & difficulties in finding information as to the best places to go. When asking at the hotel we were just given a map. The hotel itself was 'past it's sell by date'! It's very dingy & the facilities were nothing like those described in the information when booking. We had to ask for towels upon arrival & the following days too. There were no tea & coffee making facilities let alone a mini bar as advertised. The room was small & dingy & overlooked a residential apartment block. If you leaned over the balcony you could just about see the city. All the Mermaid pool bar had going for it was the pool & the views! We found this hotel was geared up for locals & being 2 females travelling found it quite intimidating as there were lots of local men coming into the hotel for the night club. Overall we would not recommend this hotel to anyone especially to women travellers.
