Dubai is an expensive place. I'm not sure for $60/night you would be able to find another hotel on top of a metro station that is vastly superior to this one. Maybe this is as good as it gets in this part of the world. Sigh!
I arrived at 2 am on a Friday night and people were walking and staggering out of the night clubs. I was able to get a room up on the 7th floor so the noise was minimized and everything died down considerably after 3:00 am, the official closing time. The hotel is old and needs a major renovation. The cleaning staff tried what they could to clean it but there's only so much you can do when things are so worn, frayed, loosened or need major repairs. The room was reasonably clean. But bed was hard as a cement floor. Pillows so old that the stuffing formed lumps in them. The front desk staff also tried hard to help you when you needed them. I think they owner probably tries to squeeze a few more years out of this aging property before spending millions to upgrade it or tear it down and build a new one. The owner wants to squeeze every last penny out of you including charging you 50 AED ($13 USD) for 24 hours of wi-fi. This is a major disappointment. I wish it were free like most hotels in the world today.
Overall, I think it's a bit overpriced. If this were in Bangkok or Saigon, it would be about $30 usd/night, which I think is more reasonable.
