I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks in june while working in Dubai.
I found the check in quick and efficient, and was given directions to my room. On entering the room i found it to be large comfortable and clean. My baggage was delivered to my room shortly afterwards. As it was the early hours of the morning i went straight to bed. After our first day at work i returned to the room and it was very comfortable. 2 single beds, a desk and chair, a large screen tv, and ample storage, a large wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The bathroom was very good with a bath and separate shower which after a hot day in Dubai was very welcoming. The room also had a safe, an iron and ironing board. I really liked the room, and found it very comfortable. The only down side was i didn't have a view to look out to.
The public areas were very modern and clean and very pleasing to the eye. We had breakfast at the hotel every morning, and this was of a very good standard and there was always a good variety. The staff were always very welcoming and very polite, and also always greeted you with a smile, which was very nice.
The staff around the hotel always greeted you, and were polite.
The roof-top pool was very pleasant, it is not the largest of pools, and the areas around the pool were not that big, but everything was very clean and well laid out.
The area that the hotel is not in the midst of the action, but i really thought it was a good area to stay to get around. The public transport in Dubai is very reasonable, so getting around was not a problem. The hotel has its own taxis, but found these a little expensive, we always used the Dubai city taxis.
I only had a drink in the hotel bar once, it was ok, but just wasn't my thing. I found other places in the area more to my liking, and found a few with offers on, as the bars are quite expensive in Dubai,eg buy one drink get a ticket for a free one( at certain times of the day). I think the hotel bar had offers, and it did get busy. Just personal choice i suppose.
So all in all, i had a pleasant stay, the room was very nice, the staff very polite and friendly, and the public areas and pool were very nice. If i was working in Dubai in this area i would be very happy to stay here again. I also understand the rates for the rooms were very reasonable.
If i was to holiday in Dubai, i would maybe stay somewhere else, but that would be only down to location. And it would depend on the rates of the other areas. But if i was allocated this hotel, i would still be very happy with it.
