4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Very polite, friendly and professional staff, no exceptions. Good location - right next to the Emirates Mall and close to the train station. Short taxi ride to Medinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah beach. Clean rooms. Pretty basic but you get what you pay for. Good breakfasts with good selection of food. No complaints and happy with our stay.

We booked online for a 5 day stay - this was very quick once I had registered on their website, I took advantage of a 15% discount. All of my questions were answered promptly. Check in was quick, we had a non smoking room located on the 7th floor. The double room, although not big was clean, had tea/coffee facilities,... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in January 2016. The hotel is clean and has a nice atmosphere. It is located just next to the Emirates mall so it was very practical for us. The service is fine. The employees at the front desk helpful. However, on our first night there we asked at the lobby about the... More

The location is perfect if you look shopping in Mall Emirates , its by step destination! The hotel is nice but too small, no place in lobby, but the restaurants at first floor is quiet comfortable for evenings, -good service, nice food! If you looking the beach hotel, you must look the other one!

Close to the mall and a metro station which is where the good stopped for us unfortunately. Checked in late night after a flight from Greece, asked for a non smoking room which was requested at booking. Got to our room, the smoke smell was like a smack in the face.
