We stayed at this hotel in october 2012 for 2 nights. Our flight landed in dubai at 5.30am i had emailed the hotel ahead to ask if the room would be avaliable earlier for check in and was told it would possibly be avaliable at 8am but it would depend on avaliability. We arrived at the hotel about 7.45am and were told they would ensure to make a room avaliable dependant on check out around 9am-10am. Therefore we sat in the lobby for around an hour and then our room was ready, twin room as requested. Which was appriciated after a long flight, it is very accomodating of the hotel to prepare rooms early without charge. Comfortable rooms with lots of space and nice decor, Only complaint would be on the first night when i took a shower depsite having the water heater switch on the shower would switch from scalding hot to freezing cold without altering the temperature guage. However the shower on the next night was fine,
The hotel is an ideal base for exploring dubai with the al riqqua metro station around a 5 minute walk to the hotel. The metro line is easy to use and will take u down the line to many of the sights of dubai for a good price, we got the daily pass for 16 UED and used the metro many times during the day, There are a few malls and places to eat around the hotel, nandos, burger king, pizza company and starbucks to name a few.
The reception staff were very accomodating and helpful to answer questions and querys about dubai and provide directions for getting around. Even down to passing staff in the corridor they always greeted us with a hello or good morning, An very early check out at 4am was no trouble and the staff hailed us a taxi straight to the airport with little fuss. I would stay in this hotel again
