Value for money, clean, excellent location right next to mall of emirates where you can reach metro station easily, staff was friendly and helpful, rooms are sort of small but excellent for a solo traveler, the room had free wired internet and a small seating area, I didn't try the pool as it was cold during my stay but it looked nice. Highly recommended for budget travelers and they won't feel they are getting less than 4 stars service or quality.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. It is only a short walk to Mall of the Emirates and the attached metro station, hence why we chose it. The overall deciding factor was the price, it's definitely worth it. It's not the fanciest hotel around, but is clean, comfortable and modern. There are a couple of bars and places to eat, which gives you the option to eat in if you don't feel like heading out. The hotel lobby was always full of people suggesting it is a well used hotel, yet it never felt that way once you left the lobby. The only downside was that the lobby always smelt of cigarette smoke. Also the room wasn't the quietest, we could hear doors closing and the people above having a shower. That being said, the levels of noise weren't too bad, I slept undisturbed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others and will definitely stay again when I return.

One thing that struck me the most was the brilliant location ( very close to the Emirates Mall and the Metro station/buses and taxis). The breakfast is good with a wide selection to pick from. There is gym with limited services plus a small pool on the roof top. The hotel has a live band on Mon till Fridays in one of the bars and there is also a sports bar for those who prefer a laid back environment. The rooms are a bit small though comfortable but there is need to attend to the showers because water easily escapes to the bathrom floor when bathing.The Al barsha is generally quite and less crowded compared to places such as Deira which is also something I loved about the area. The free shuttle service to the beach is also another plus but you have to pay for internet services
Overally I would give a thumbs up to the place !!!!!!!!

Room Tip: High foors and less noise and great views particulary the floors facing the Burj Khalifa

Just returned from staying eight nights at this hotel. The hotel is situated next to the Mall of the Emirates and is a five minute walk from the Metro Station.
Although the rooms are quite small they are nevertheless perfectly adequate.
Breakfasts are reasonably priced and there is ample choice.
Taxis can be caught outside the hotel and are very cheap.
Their are also many restaurants in the nearby Mall and they are good quality and not expensive.
Sights worth seeing in Dubai include Burj Khalifa, Marina and Souks (take the Dhow across the Creek for one Dirham).
I would recommend taking the Dubai Big Bus Tour as it is very good to orientate you with Dubai.
The staff at Citymax were all very helpful and I would advise visitors to Dubai looking for good value to stay at this Hotel.

Room Tip: Upper floors are very quiet.

The hotel is just few minutes from Mall of Emirates and the Metro. The room is clean but rather small. The twin room have 2 small beds each of about 2 feet across and not suitable for grown up. Thie small size bed is not obvious from the hotel website pictures dispalyed. However, free wifi is available.

Room Tip: Book double room
