“Good location, unfriendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Good location, close to metro and mall of the Emirates. The rooms were a bit noisy, but this happens often in Dubai. Front office staf was very unfriendly - many russian turists in this hotel. In general is a good hotel if you do not have very big expectations for your accomodation.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stayed there in december 2012. Hotel is very close to Tub station and only 10 minutes walk to Mall of Emirates and Ski Dubai. Close to hotel there are many restaurants with very cheap prices. Hotel is clean, rooms are big enough. Breakfast was very good. Staff is helpful. We paid approx. 80eur for dbl room with breakfast. I can honestly recommend this hotel wich is realy excellent with these price and location.

A 2 min walk from the metro and 10 to 15 min walk to Mall of the Emirates, this is a clean hotel situated a few metro stops from the Dubai Marina in one direction, and the Dubai Mall in the other direction. Jumeirah is about 10 mins away by taxi. Rooms are good, the gym is great and the rooftop pool is a bonus. The hotel bar is ok for a pint and free wifi but nothing special. Internet access is at cost in your room. Recommended if you want a reasonably priced hotel in a decent location.

In ternms of comfort, there's not much wrong with the hotel. The rooms are quite spacious, but it lacks any charm or warmth whatsoever. It is let down by poor staff service.

I was woken up with banging on the door to check if I had laundry. On check out, they made me wait a while whilst they went to check if I'd had two packets of peanuts from the minibar, not one. I was irritated by this lack of trust - particularly when they'd got my card number in case of extras.

The lobby was continually being vacuumed with a very loud machine, making it impossible to hold meetings there. I'm all for cleanliness, but every hour?

The decor is early 80s and is quite dark and dated. The Locker Room bar had extremely loud music even though there were only 3 people in it. They, like me, left as it was too intrusive.

The location is next to a Metro station and a short walk from the Mall of Emirates, but it is in part of Al Barsha where the investment seems to have dried up, with a lot of wasteland between the hotel street and the main commercial area.

We stayed a week in Dubai in November 2012.
It was our first trip there.
We liked the hotel very much.
The room was big and well equipped.
The breakfast was splendid with friendly staff.
It is well situated, 5 minutes walk to the nearest metrostation
and one station away from Emirates Mall.
The hotel is well worth the money.

Definitely a taxi ride if you are driving good luck, it's close to emirates mall but seems difficult to get to by car.
Clean modern hotel, reasonably priced, average breakfast. Room well furnished and comfortable. Good location I would cat inlay stay there again.
