Considering that past experience with Habtoor Grand and HIlton hotels I was expecting a bit more.
The location is very bad, you can not find anything nearby the hotel, only a very small shopping mall. You need at least 15 minutes by taxi to reach Downtown (with normal traffic) and the taxis in the hotel are quite expensive, around USD 15-17 for this distance.
The room is very good with a large and nice bathroom. The hotel facilities are also nice except for the restaurants that are just ok. The breakfast does not value the USD 33 that they charge, avoid at any cost! You can take a very nice breakfast in downtown for half of this price.
Wifi is also charged as extra.
