“Convenient location, decent service levels”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Had the opportunity to stay here on a working trip. This hotel was earlier known as Seashell Inn. Very centrally located, close to Sheikh Zayed Road, the financial district and major market areas. I remember walking to a carrefour as well. Easy to get to the Souk area and heritage sites from the hotel. Clean rooms, a nice breakfast spread and friendly staff makes this a reasonable option to look at. Easy come and easy go. Recommended for short trips and cost prudence.

Stayed there just for one night in the matter of flight schedule changes.
Nice simple hotel with an attentive staff, quite a nearby the bus terminal and not far from metro, lot of street cafe and shopping centers are placed in a walk distance.
Quite a reasonable price for the hotel with all the necessary conveniences, near the public transport and street life. Hotel staff is attentive and kind-hearted with traditional eastern hospitality. Recommend a short stay for sightseeing attend.

Room Tip: Ask for any assistance to the hotel staff

We stayed 3 nights with our family, two kids of 10 and 7.
The location is good, near "old"dubai, local shopping malls and bus stops.
On the first morning there was no water in the bathroom, which was strange...
The service is good, people are friendly, food is OK and the breakfast has a lot of choice.

The only negative factor was the disco on the ground floor which you can hear in your room at night, otherwise it is a nice hotel and good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floors!

Though there is nothing particularly 'Grand' about the Hotel, however it does not disappoint in terms of service quality. Does not overwhelm you with luxury, yet provides the basic amenities with finesse.

Rooms are Grand no doubt. I stayed in a single room and it was large. Fairly spacious bathroom and the fixtures were new. The furniture is run-of-the-mill but again well maintained. Overall it was a clean and comfortable stay.

The Breakfast that came with the room was again nothing to write home about. However there was nothing to complain about either. The breakfast menu catered to Indian taste buds.

Service was ok. Front desk was helpful and efficient. The location of the hotel is convenient, since it is quite close to the airport and the city.

Overall this was a very middle-of-the-road kind of a hotel. Can cater to business travelers, tourists or families with kids. Not expensive yet convenient. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable hotel close to the city, choose Panorama Grand. However if you are looking for luxury or character, look elsewhere!

We had stayed in Seashell Inn for 3 nights & 4 days during our Dubai visit and enjoyed the stay. It is situated at a centrally convenient location and surrounded by similar hotels. Important destinations / tourist attractions are located in close vicinity and hence, this is a popular hotel among tourists. We were more delighted to stay at this hotel since we also got few pure veg hotels including Kamats within 1 km.

Highly recommended for budget travellers.

Room Tip: Road facing rooms should be avoided.

Positive:

- Located on the main road accessible easily to cabs and RTA and 5 mins walk to Metro station..
- Breakfast and Lunch menu is very good, they serve variety of foods and kept changing the menu on daily basis.
- Staff were friendly and helpful

Negative Aspects;
- Lobby Area is too cramped, needs a little make over
- Nightclubs on the Ground floor disturbs the occupants on the 1st and 2nd Floor

Room Tip: Rooms above 3rd floor which are not facing the roads.

Good location near to the Creek and the old souk. Easy access to the red line bus tour.
Rooms are large, bed was very good. Service and breakfast quite good.bathroom needed a refurb badly yet adequate.
Would stay agin as the room rate we got on the net was very good.
Disco on the ground floor could disturb your sleep if you are on lower floors above the disco.
