I needed just a simple, convenient hotel for an overnight layover while in Dubai. No hotel shuttle, which is fine. Taxi's are abundant and reasonable. I came in after midnight and was charged a premium for the 10 min taxi to hotel. (40 AED or about $13 USD). In the morning it was much better (25 AED or about $8).... More

Have had a very pleasant two nights at Samaya. The staff are so helpful and eager to share knowledge of the area. Very centrally located for transportation. Our room was clean and well appointed, quiet even though near the airport and also undergoing some renovations. The upstairs lounge offers outdoor seating overlooking the Creek- a lovely way to end the... More

This place was sold as a 5-star hotel and this rating is given on that basis. This hotel is dated and the curtains, furniture, towels, fittings are in urgent need of change. To be fair to the hotel, they are in the midst of reconstruction which added to the discomfort with hammering at all hours. This is a family hotel... More

I found this on Expedia website & I found this to be a very useful base for staying in Dubai. It is close to the Dubai Creek & other tourist attractions like the old part of the city. It is close to the airport & the metro. All in all good service, nice food & very comfortable stay.

Hotel was lovely, clean, helpful staff, spacious rooms and bathroom. Rooftop pool is a great addition, providing fantastic views down the creek and surrounding areas. Location is brilliant for being so close to the airport, and great for exploring old Dubai. As city is so huge I would suggest staying elsewhere if you're looking to explore newer Dubai, but it's...

Samaya is an excellent property situated in Deira, next to Hilton Hotel. The rooms are clean, spacious and provide all requirements. The staff is well trained and courteous. A big plus is roof top swimming pool which also provides nice view of the entire surrounding area.
