Reviewed January 28, 2014

We stayed at the mercure Gold Hotel for 2 days and enjoyed the quality of this hotel.
The staff is professional and friendly. We arrived earlier than the check in time and they made efforts to give us our rooms.
The rooms are relatively big and the bathroom also, with one bath tub and a shower. The hotel was quiet during our stay.
The location is certainly not the best one in Dubai, but it is a good value for money residence.
The in room dining is ok although the offer is limited and not the finest.
There is a small pool on the roof if you need to be refreshed!

I went out to Dubai on a 3-4 week business trip involving work in the Dry Docks facility.
The company booked me into the Mercure Gold Hotel on Al Mina Road, because of it's proximity to the Shipyards. I actually ended up staying there 3 months, 3rd August to 3rd November '13.

As a hotel for someone on a business trip it was absolutely great, and was able to meet all of my requirements. At one point there was actually 35 of us staying there from the same company, and the Staff were really good with the whole team.
The rooms are all spacious, and the beds are comfortable. For sure you do not feel like you are living in a box. Flat screen television has a fair selection of channels and caters to all nationalities.
In room internet was a bit of a problem at first, but the IT Manager placed a mobile router on the desk in my room, and it worked perfectly after that.

Menu's are repetitive, but having said that I was there for a long time. For someone on a 1 - 2 week trip it would be fine. The quality of the meals improved greatly over the period of my stay, and I put this down to the leadership of the new General Manager, Sven. The wine list could do with some improvement in terms of quality. Most people are prepared to pay the price for a good bottle of wine!

The Staff, were all really friendly, and helpful. The front desk team lead by Miss Pritha and Abhishake, (forgive my spelling), really go out of their way to help solve any problems you may have. On the Concierge Desk is Vipen, whom I have know for about five years, and from his previous hotel. He is a real 'Mr. Fixit'!

Finally, the Assistant Director of Sales, Evonne Sequeira. This Lady is determined to make sure that guests know that the staff are there to assist at all times, and she makes sure that she is leading from the front, at the interface between guests and staff.

All round an extremely pleasant stay, and I expect to be there again sometime in the not to distant future.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are the same, although I'm not sure. If you don't mind traffic sounds, a...

Dear Raed T,

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your opinion of your recent stay with us.
First of all please accept our apology for the negative experience at our hotel.
It is always a disappointment for us when the guest satisfaction could not be met and like to add that the service provided to you does not reflect the usual level of curtsey we attempt to offer.
In fact we receive very positive comments overall, especially about the friendliness of our team members. Therefore we are taking necessary steps to ensure this experience remains an unfortunate exception based on the email received from you earlier. I had the opportunity to respond to you directly already in detail and hope we will have the chance to welcome you again being able to show our true colors.

With kind regards,

Sven Drewitz
General Manager

This hotel gives you good value for money. Great, clean room and friendly and helpful staff. Location is okay, but it demands a taxi to take you to metro, Dubai Mall, Dubai Creek and other places you would like to go. Taxis are quite cheap, though. Don´t expect spectacular views. The only view is from the roof top terrace. I would have expected a hotel of this quality to supply wifi in the rooms. However it is only free in the lobby, just as mentioned on the booking website. But - I was disappointed when buying wifi in the room that it was per unit, meaning that once you logged on your computer, you could not use your smart phone, tablet or other units at the paid rate. I did expect more of Dubai in 2013 and it is the only reason for not rating this hotel higher.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a 5 star experience for a fair price! It was almost half the price of the average 5 star hotel, but the rooms and service were just as good and well organised.

Baring in mind this is just a three star hotel the room and facilities are superb. Nice comfy bed, good sized bathroom. The bar is pleasant and the staff in their are friendly. However.....

Reception staff the whole check in and check out seemed to be based around my use of the mini bar and deposit required. On check out I was kept waiting whilst a call was made to a phantom individual and then kept waiting for five minutes with no explanation. The fact the mini bar wasn't stocked properly to start with seemed marginal.

"Could I book an extra night?" I enquired on check in. "No you need to do it online". In conclusion room nice, just didn't feel the staff had their hearts in it.
