A good reasonably priced hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The wifi is better than a lot of hotels in this price bracket. Nice gym and pool. The only criticism is that when you book they don't tell you that the buffet breakfast is extra. It is also handy for the Dubai Mall and the metro to the Mall... More

The hotel was a nice surprise to me. The price was very cheap so I didn't expect much, but the room was clean and staff was very helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend if anybody is looking for a budget option.

I stayed at the citymax for about 3 weeks. Rooms are decent, bed comfortable, nice gym and rooftop pool (though the pool can be quickly crowded). The breakfast buffet is pretty decent for the price (mainly western: eggs, beef sausages, pancakes... But also some indian and egyptian dishes. The staff was helpful and friendly. There are 2 prayer rooms located... More

At 44 Euro a day, including a reasonable breakfast and nice staff, it was certainly a good value. The rooftop pool was a disappointment, but the Fitness Studio was well above average; large, well equipped facility (but bring a towel from your room). The problem: Outside and construction noise. My room on the 11th floor was immediately adjacent the (very... More

Visiting a friend we met in the sports bar of this hotel. A great place, with super friendly staff and good food. We both had Nasai Goreng which was yummy. A lovely atmosphere, apart from the smoke. Would recommend as a place to catch up with friends and have a few drinks.

If you are looking for a basic, clean room with a decent breakfast (& the odd pub/sports bar) in Dubai, as well as quick access to one of the best malls in Dubai, look no further! The staff here are fantastic (genuinely friendly and helpful). Breakfast is sufficient and lunch and dinner can also be taken in the restaurant. There... More

I always stay at this Citymax when am on a quick trip on a budget. It is across the street from Mall of the Emirates. It is on the main road so the taxis find it easy. The Mall of the Emirates metro is few minutes walking distance. Breakfast is good. Service reception is great.
