This is one of three buildings making up the Sultan Palace hotel, "number 1" being the most resirable and "number 3" the worst off. These suites have a couple of bedrooms, one master, one smaller. They are clean and reasonably well appointed. The larger one has a TV, the other has a couple of single beds. They all have a cabinet for clothes and are generally in good condition. The kitchen is very spacious with a large fridge, cooking area and dishes provided. It seems to be designed with family occupancy in mind. There is also a smallish washer and spinner of low quality. The two bathrooms are in decent shape, one has a tub, but the smaller one has a stand up shower simply to the side of the wall so water will run all over. There are no amenities other than basic soap and tiny shower tubes.
Internet reception is very poor from almost any location in the hotel. You can't use YouTube or any site like that unless you leave it to download for a while. VIOP sites seem to work if nothing else is sharing the bandwidth.
The AC in the suites is central, so it can't be adjusted room to room. Cable TV consists of mostly regional Arabic channels, with a couple of Dubai movie channels and news in English. There is breakfast in two of the buildings, with little change from day to day. The exercise equipment is a joke, so if you're serious about working out you'll join the gym across the street for the equivalent of forty dollars a month.
The staff hardly speak any English. You'll have to request a "do not disturb" sign from the desk to avoid the cleaners waking you up every morning. There are a couple of decent eateries, pharmacies, barbers and groceries all within walking distance. All in all, building 1 is in reasonable shape, only slightly better than bldg 2, which has great single occupancy rooms. It's location is on a major road and it's not far from the airport.
