A nice hotel with all basic amenities which you can expect from a budget hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast spread was also good. Location is a big plus as lot of restaurants are there in the vicinity and Mall of Emirates is at 2-4 mins walking distance. Challenges/Drawbacks: - getting a taxi in mornings can be a challenge...
