The Lords hotel is probably ok for 1 or 2 nights but I would not want to spend there much longer. We had a two-nights stopover in Dubai and our main objective was to visit Burj Dubai/Khalifa observation deck – and we were lucky enough to get there.
Back to the review: on the plus side the room was very spacious and clean. There were quite loud party vibes in the street when we arrived late night Thursday, but the windows in our room were soundproof.
On the other hand the room looked very 1970s and the hotel was packed with noisy Russians. Swimming pool and sundeck terrace on the rooftop was quite small and not really welcoming.
Mediocre breakfast (selection-, taste- and service-wise) and indifferent staff did not improve our impression.
They asked our passports on arrival to keep them overnight for a police check but were reluctant to give us any proof that they took the passports. Eventually, they did, because we insisted. On the second day it was a real pain to get our passports back – we had to ask for it 3 times - different times of the day- until we got them back.
The area is also not really special, but taxis are cheap in Dubai and we also made a 5-10 minutes walk from to Dhow Wharfage and the Dubai Creek. From there it is about 20 min of nice walk along the water to the abra (watertaxi) stations.
Next time in Dubai I will look for a different place to stay.
