When you book your room do not select breakfast because when you arrive to check in they offer that for 35dhr not 45 as advertised and if the offer changes you will still pay 45 any way. Well worth testing it out lets face it every penny saved in on holiday is a bonus especially dubai as it is quite... More

The hotel is situated near the Mall of the Emirates and offers free parking. Just because of the location, many travellers are choosing this hotel without reading the reviews so here is a detailed review by me who travelled all around the work. My check-in experience was just normal and coming from the airport at 21:00 hours, the staff totally... More

The hotel location is not bad, just behind mall of the emirates. I had to wait for 20 minutes to get my room, which is not a standard at any hotel. Rooms are clean with good bathroom. No view at all. Bad food.

The hotel is well situated near the Mall of the Emirates and has free parking(stress free). The rooms are always spotlessly clean and comfortable. The rooftop pool is well maintained and I enjoy a cool drink poolside. The restaurant is good but I prefer the sports bar which also serves food.

The hotel is located at a walking distance from the Mall of the Emirates. The hotel has one sports bar and a bar at the ground floor with loud music and is frequented by females who I am sure looked like prostitutes. But the music was contained to the lobby level itself and was not reaching the rooms. Also, the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip. The rooms are very small and basically furnished but clean and well lit. My room was very quiet but the curtains did not fully block out the morning light. I enjoyed the rooftop pool and had some good meals at the sportsmans bar but the breakfasts were disappointing. The night club... More

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
