Stayed there in april with my wife.
Coming into the hotel it is very loud and noisy,and smells of cigarette smoke all the time due to the 2 bars in the lobby of the hotel.
The rooms are quite clean and nice.size is ok for the price you pay.no free wifi in rooms but its free in the lobby. What a bad idea in my opinion as anyone in the who comes into the lobby can use it but guests staying there cannot acccess from the rooms. Breakfast was quite nice.didnt find anything wrong with that.

Thank Sulaiman S

This is what I call a short stay hotel, it only has 4 clothes hangers in the wardrobe, and that is about as long as I stayed, but in saying that it was a very good hotel, across the road from the Mall of Eremites, small room but comfortable, swimming pool, gym, American style bar, live music night club, a good standard restaurant, this is a busy hotel, so make sure you get down for breakfast early, although the food in the buffet breakfast is quickly topped up when it runs low, good staff, very friendly, I was there at the beginning of Aprill 2013, cheap but good, and yes I will stay again

Room Tip: get down early for breakfast

A good, clean, reasonably priced and well located budget hotel. Very effeicient and professional service from reception staff to room service, Good location as close to metro, the marina and Jumerah beach. The hotel provides regular daily free courtesy bus to the beach. Taxi to Airport not expensive paid £18 and there are several eating places close to the hotel including the food court in the Mall of Emirates that is just accross the road. Would use the hotel again for a short stay of up to 4 days.

Room Tip: upper floors good view and less noisy

I only stayed in the Citymax Hotel for ine night, its location is perfect, right behind the Emirates mall, you have everything around it.

Rooms are only doubles, no triple rooms. This was a problem for me because we were a huge group and we had to stay in double rooms, most of which, with one king size bed, not two small beds.

All in all, if you are going there as a couple, it is a great spot, with very good staff and breakfast.

Good cheap hotel in Dubai. The room was clean but the bathroom was a little smelly. Service was not great, the people at the front desk were a little rude, may have just been a communication issue. This would not stop me from staying there again. P.S the Buffett breakfast was excellent!
