“Old style hotel near the Gold Souk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Stayed 1 night in a double en-suite room in Mar 13. I originally booked the nearby Queens Hotel but they were full so I was moved here. This is a very basic, budget hotel in a noisy, narrow street within walking distance of the Gold Souk, a main bus station and 2 green line metro stations (Al Ras & Palm Deira). There are also plenty of local shops and places to eat nearby. I stayed on a Friday and this hotel is very near the Mosque so the surrounding streets were full of men praying and the 'call to prayer' loudspeakers are very loud! and they go off at 5am! I'm not sure it's like this everyday. The reception is small and basic where they give you a real key, no plastic cards or codes here. The room was OK with a double and a single bed, a big flat screen TV and a fridge so you can keep your own drinks cold. The shower lacks pressure and the curtain doesn't reach the bowl so the floor gets wet, there's a sink, WC, some basic toiletries and nice big towels. There's no double glazing so there's alot of street noise especially at 5am! Overall an OK place for budget travelers and it's close to many public transport options.

Room Tip: Not facing the Mosque to avoid a heart attack at 5am.
