“Arrange a pick up shutle from airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2008

Further to my previous review I would like to add
that we booked the hotel through DirectRooms initially but it was a pain as they don't have an instant confirmation of booking
and if you are booking at the short notice...problem!

better was for us to get service from octopustravel and then when we already got our booking and PLEASE print your voucher and the payment confirmation and whatever else the site is providing you with - as the reception requires all these papers
and without them you are in trouble! then send the email to the hotel dthtl at sign emirates dot net dot ae asking them to arrange to pick up from the airport. Remember - forget about english politness and just say everything clearly and simple - No of people when , all flight details, etc... I suggest that you call them too to follow this up and GET the name of the person who took your message.

I guess it is all - now thinking back about that trip - it was not bad at all! the hotel was actually better then the whole experience being in DUbai. I repeat - Abu Dabi is much better!

Stayed February 2008

Terrible Hotel, reminded me of a dormitory setting, dusty, smelly and the staff unfriendly. Checked out 1 hour later and the staff were rude refusing to check me out as they had recieved payment in advance. Never again!

Date of Vacation: 11th to 18th March 2008.

Venue: Deira Town Hotel, Deira, Dubai, UAE.

This hotel has friendly staff, the hotel is comfortable and bedroom was clean however the bathroom was very tired with black mildew around the inside of the shower cubicle which had only one door. There are 2 nightclubs on ground floor which ends at 3am so you need to be on the 4th floor. The staff are helpful as long as you ask the questions, if you don't they will not volunteer the information eg If you require a taxi do not stand at front of hotel expecting one to stop however you can use the hotel telephone in reception to ring for one but it took two days of standing for an hour outside the hotel before i asked the staff what to do. The food in the restaurant is only ok. When organising excursions either book in UK or in local agents do not use hotel travel desk as the price is almost double. I booked through an agent for a desert safari which cost 160 Dhms but had I booked in hotel would have been charged 250. Also i did not know until I arrived that there is a courtesy bus to and from the airport, so had to pay for a taxi from airport at midnight. Would have been easier had the hotel arranged for us to be collected.

As soon as you step in Deira Town Hotel, you will be amazed by the interior of the lobby and the super helpful service rendered by the driver, bellboy and the philipinos working in the restaurant, in view of the 2 star rating.

However, the nightmare began as soon as you start conversing with the receptionist. The are 3 receptionist altogether, 2 in the morning shift 1 in the night shift, all south indian origin. Low and behold prepare youself to talk to a nearly semi-comatose being. They will only appear lively when talking to the same race and language. If you need a favour try the egyptian girl who sit at the opposite counter handling tourist queries. She simply fantastic and has a very service oriented attitude.

Now the room, i'm suprise that the hotel is only 8 months as the rooms are falling appart. The card key will hold you outside your room for a tiring ten minutes before it permits you to enter. The handles of the cupboard came out when you want to open it. The carpet room smells so does the shower curtain. The sink leaks and wet your whole bathroom floor, not like it matters as your shower already did its job.

But the best part has to be "lullaby" by the well-collaborated south asia beats from the 3 night clubs at the lobby level of the hotel all the way till 3 am.

P/S: If your hungry at night just use the room service, the restaurant operates in total darkness after 8 pm. =P

Initially we were annoyed with the receptionists lack of communication skills - they took our passports to scan and left us standing in confusion whilst we waited for...something. However, once we got up to our room we realised that this is a nice, clean little hotel which is in a good location.

A lot has been made of the noise and yes, there are nightclubs in the hotel, but we switched the airconditioner on and slept fine. Maybe ask for a room higher up the building?

One tip - turn on the hot water in the bathroom as soon as you get there. It's not on automatically.

I'd say this is a good hotel for the money, especially if you're sightseeing and not spending much time in your room. It's a cheap, clean bed in a safe hotel.

  • Liked — It was a clean, safe bargain.
  • Disliked — The staff.

I don't know why so many small hotels in this part of the world insist on running noisy nightclubs with thumping music that can be heard throughout the building. The Deira Town Hotel has not just one, but three nightclubs on the ground floor. Ask for a 4th floor room on the quieter end of the building.

The rooms are large and clean, in my opinion 4-star standard with big beds and good showers. There is also bellboy service which I wouldn't have expected from a budget hotel.

The location is within walking distance of the river and souqs, amid Dubai's Indian community. Females get a lot of (harmless) unwanted attention and stares around here - it's worth dressing modestly.

Stayed December 2007

i had a pleasant stay at the deira town hotel. The staff were pleasant and check in was right on time. The only grouse i had was the noise from the night club, which was a daily affair. The rooms are very clean and the hotel has a welcoming ambience. I wouldnt mind staying there again.
