The welcome provided by the reception staff and porters was excellent. My room was clean and a good size, plus had a wonderful view out over the creek. I had a couple of very comfortable nights' sleep. The hotel is very well located: it is 5min walk to Baniyas Sq Metro Station as well as the Abra station for a... More

Been coming back to this Hotel for many years after staying in about 5 other Hotels in Dubai. Clean & decent room size. Ask for a Creek View room and you will be rewarded with a Great View of the Dubai Creek where plenty of big boats, small boat taxis and all the River cruises plying. further to the background...

This is apparently one of the oldest hotels in Dubai but has been tastefully modernised and decorated. My one night stay was very comfortable and it would be hard to fault the room. The hotel is, as far as I am aware, 'dry', so it might be better to look elsewhere if this is important to you. On the other... More

Booked this hotel after reading several positive reviews in Tripadvisor and as usual, it paid off. Nice hotel, nice staff and decent accommodation. I travelled to Dubai with my Mom and my brother and we stayed here for 5 nights. We did not use their restaurant or other room service but our stay was calm, peaceful and enjoyable. I would... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently on the way to the Far East & because we wanted to experience the metropolis of Dubai. We found a good deal on a hotel sight & booked what is termed a "souk view room." However I had noted that most people recommend a creek view room which weren't on offer on any... More

I first stayed on the creek a year ago at the Radisson Blu and that's when I first saw and went to enquire about this hotel. In Sept 2015 I chose to stay here for a few days but unfortunately got sick due to heat exhaustion so couldn't enjoy or rate the facility properly. I've just spent 4 nights here... More

Stayed 2.5 days in the hotel with room overlooking the Creek. Balcony enabled to get fresh air now and then. Convenience of taxi and Big Bus Stop. Many eateries nearby so can't go hungry.

Firstly, this hotel corridors requires modernising ( with the different carpets/wallpapers ) on the same floor which makes it look outdated BUT apart from this, the hotel was 100% immaculate,spotless and very clean. Rooms were comfortable and staff very professional and customer focused to all your needs. I was very impressed and would certainly book here again on my regular... More

The hotel is on a main bus route and a few minutes' walk from Union Metro station. There is a branch of Choitrams supermarket 3-4 minutes walk away from the hotel which is a good supply of snacks, drinks, milk, etc. The hotel itself had good customer service at the front desk, and polite, helpful staff in the breakfast lounge....
