“If you must go cheap read this”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2007

lets get real reviewers.... you only stay in places like this because why waste money on rooms when you are out all day and you do not wish to pay the ridiculous Dubai accomodation prices.
will not suit the traveller not psychologically ready for downtown location amidst the tacky end of Deira.
However the room is adequate ,7/10 in cleanliness and aircon ok..........but be wary of the room location as even tho request was away from niteclubs the fairly abrupt front desk was no help in actioning this. The noise from the 2 or 3 niteclubs went till all hours and only the dedicated drinker could beat the intrusive thumping. The breakfast was good "gutluggage" and the best sport is watching rather large Arab ladies making numerous trips to fill up their hand luggage with takeaways.

Stayed June 2007

We stayed at this brand new hotel for 2 nights and we received fantastic service.
Provided free airport transfers and allowed us to check in early as we came direct from the airport at 10am.
Very friendly staff, clean spacious rooms and clean bathrooms.
Very good value for money, would definately stay again on my next trip!
They take you on free tours twice a day and pick you up at a certain time.
Overall very satisfied with the service we received.

Why we chose this hotel?
We booked into this hotel after having an extremely bad experience at the Royal Falcon Hotel, just a few minutes drive away from Deira Town Hotel.
We looked at many different hotels in the area, ranging from 3-4.5 star properties. We were looking for value, comfort and cleanliness and a room with a great ambience. Believe me, we looked at over 15 hotels in the area and this was the only one that met all of those expectations! For a 3 star hotel, this definately exceeded my expectations. It is more like a 4 star. As an employee of 4-5 star hotels I can tell you that for sure!!

Great Value!
We went during Dubai's peak season. Room rates were approx 150 AUD at the time for a double room with an extra bed, breakfast for three (basic, but adequate) and airport transfers.

Location, Location, Location!
Great location, just walking distance to many restaurants (who even deliver to your room at no charge), the Ghurair Mall, Gold Souk, Beach, 10 mins drive from the airport. Fantastic!

The Hotel & Room!
The hotel was being finished while we were there. But it still had a good ambience.
The room was very comfortable. Spacious, clean, good furnishings and a lot of natural light (rare in other hotels in area). Bathroom was spacious with great water pressure.
The quality of room service meals is great! Very cheap and delicious for 24 hours.
Internet services are available just metres away from the hotel.

Staff & Service
A bell boy by the name of June was fantastic, as was the duty manager. However, the girls at reception were a little rude, perhaps they could do with a little customer service training. Besides those minor imperfections, staff was fantastic!

I will recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone looking for comfort and great value!
I can definately guarantee that you will not find a hotel that is any better value than this one, you definately won't regret staying here!!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights 26th March to 29th March.
Initially when I booked the hotel via asiatravel.com at $108 per night for a double room with Breakfast, there were no reviews as the Hotel is just 5 Months old. I tried everything to read about the hotel but no joy.
LOCATION: The Hotel is very well located in Deira, Omar Bin Al Khattab Road (Opposite DEWA Customer Services office) (Department of Electricity and Water Authority), absolutely a great location, close to everywhere you want to go to, 10mins Airport, 6mins Gold Souk, 15min World trade centre. Cost $3.00 to gold souk and $6.00 to Airport
Hotel offered complimentary pickup and drop off at the airport. (That was very good)
RESTURANT: Loads of local resturants close by, at least 15-20 places to select from. The hotel itself has two resturants, one is functional, the breakfast was just okay, basic, I have had better breakfast in other hotels in Dubai. Please do not get me wrong, the breakfast was not bad, just basic. Room service was okay, nice sandwiches served round the clock for very cheap price
HOTEL DECOR AND ROOM: As the hotel is still very new, the decor was very clean and of good standard, Rooms were of average size, slightly bigger than small, absolutely no problem with the room. I requested for a top floor room and was given room 403. The hotel has 3 night clubs on the ground floor so it was be good to ask for a top floor room to avoid the music noise at night till 3am. (Dubai is full of fun, hardly will you get a hotel without a night club)
STAFF: The staff were very helpful and friendly, always willing to assist, door boy called Deprinder was always helpful. Reception staff also very helpful
The only problems I had with the hotel were
(1) No Gym
(2) No Internet Service in both lobby and rooms
(3) No swimming Pool
I was rather surprised that a hotel in Dubai will exist without the above, even 1 star hotels in more remote areas have swimming pools and internet. For me, that downgraded the level of the hotel. I actually advised the management to consider including a gym, s/pool and wireless internet to their rooms, I am sure this will increase their sales. Also there were no individual safe's in the rooms but they had a common room in the lobby with individual safes for guest to use and you were given the key to keep. A charge of $80 if you misplaced the key.
In all, a good hotel, I hope they will keep the place clean and friendly and obviously include a gym, pool and internet.
Will I stay again? Yes because of the clean environment and the location and then the free pickup and drop off. Checkin is 1pm and checkout 12Noon, I was allowed to check out at 1.00pm.
In all. a 3 star hotel that could have been a 4 star with some simple basic extras
