I stayed here during Ramadan for about 10 days.
Location is good, it is near to airport and also the Souq Waqif.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Rooms are really large.
Nice indoor pool and gym area.
Personally I thought the breakfast was ok - a good selection but after a few days it got a little tired. We also had an evening meal there which again was just ok. I only ate in the buffet so didn't try all of their restaurants.
I would very happily stay in this hotel again but I do think it could do with some improvements.
Wifi was expensive in your room. It's free in the public areas but if you want it in your room I think it is expensive. Since I was there for business I needed it in my room.
Also the lights in the room. The lights were controlled by a main panel in the room along with everything else (air con, power, do not disturb etc) however it was not a simple task to have one bedside light left on that you switched off from your bed. It's a small petty thing but just annoying.
Overall though, this is a very good hotel if you are on business and I think is excellent value.
