My daughter and I stayed at the City Max Al Barsha for 5 nights. The Rooms were small but clean, the bedding changed every day. Lack of wardrobe space though... two women sharing we found that difficult, had to resort from living out of our suitcases. only one big drawer and very basic hanging space. Small bathroom, but adequate. Staff friendly. Service good. I had to report a bulb had gone out above the shower, they were on to it immediately. One day our room boy forgot to leave towels ... one phone call to reception, within 5-10 minutes, knock on the door with the towels. We didn't eat in the hotel, but the breakfast was adequate for our needs, there wasn't a huge choice, but we only like toast and cereal anyway so didn't matter to us. Coffee was nice. There is a roof top pool, but you will be lucky to get a place up there. We went up at 9am and every sunbed was taken. The location of the hotel isn't the best, and I think if we returned to Dubai we wouldn't stay in The Al Barsha area.. We did notice a few girls hanging around the hotel, scantily clad (I'll say no more)! There is a night club in the hotel too which we found a bit noisy on our first night. Didn't seem to bother us after that, not sure if it's on every night. It's locaton to the Mall of the Emirates is handy - just across the road. With it being our first time in Dubai it was a good place to start and explore. But anywhere you stay in Dubai, you need to get a taxi or metro. Don't expect to just come out of the hotel and stroll down to the beaches... Not if you want to cross a 6 lane motorway (in both directions).. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dubai, and The city Max provided us with a base, it isn't luxury, but I guess you get what you pay for, and somewhere to rest your head after a hectic day.
