I met the facilities in the toilet lacking in room 1510. There was a used bathrobe belt from a previous guest before i check-in. The carpet is full of dirt and stains. Take...

Stayed for 4 nights and will be staying again in a few weeks. Price was very good, food was great but what stood out to us was the great friendly staff. On arrival our room was upgraded to a suite, which we didn't necessarily need however were very grateful.

It is quite modern, however slightly dated at the same time. Our towel racks were loose, shower had a bit of mould and a few scuff...

We stayed here for 2 nights in November. Very good location on the Corniche. It has a nice buffet breakfast. We had the buffet dinner also one night, it was fantastic! The rooms are quite big! Free wi-fi! Very comfortable stay.

Hotel has all the amenities and no complaints although probably not what was expected for an Arabian 4* and a little tired but adequate - It suited me because of the location to the office that I was visiting and first time in area. There are other swisher hotels in the vicinity for only a little more money. Room was...

But nobody working on renovation. Did not get my wake up call. When I complained the front desk said we were calling...

Do not expect anything extravagant. It's sort of saying, you get what you paid for. If not of it's proximity to my nieces workplace, I would look for other alternative. Specifically talking about the upkeep of the hotel. The bathtub drains so slow, the sink have cracks hence I requested for a new room. Which by way was immediately addressed....
