Citymax Hotels Al Barsha
Ranked #139 of 564 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed May 6, 2013

This hotel is everything we expected and more! It's clean; has a pool and sun beds; fresh towels everyday, free wifi, excellent views; great value for money; and the best bit - being right next to a metro station so we could do all our site seeing/travelling of dubai! We would definitely recommend the desert safari tour that can be booked through the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor (level 14)

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the Citymax AlBarsha for a ten day break. The hotel was very friendly, clean and well facilitated. The real selling point when choosing where to stay was the location which proved to be a very good choice. If I had one complaint it would be the limited room round the pool but with so much else to do in Dubai it wasn't a problem. Would stay again

Room Tip: Didn't choose but 1207 was good enough for us

I stayed here for 7 nights in April 2013 and found the room to be very clean, good shower, desk and chair and also an armchair. Tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Free wifi in the lobby and wired internet in the room. Very close to the Mall of the Emirates, a few minutes walk and the metro can be reached by walking through the Mall, about 750 meters. In the area there are a few restaurants. Free shuttle service to the beach.

Would definitely stay here again when visiting Dubai. An excellent choice.

We didn't stay here but went to watch live music in the bar. Excellent place for a night out. Drinks are reasonably priced and staff very professional. The band play a good range of rock and pop music. Very smokey atmosphere.

I visited as a single traveler and I would only recommend the hotel to backpackers but not to families or people who are particularly picky about clean rooms.


+ shuttle service to the beach
+ directly located by the Mall of the Emirates

- unfriendly staff
- small rooms
- stains and dirty spots in the room
- almost no English
- Wifi only in lobby

We were stayed here two nights, and for the purpose of sightseeing, it did a good job. I had underestimated just how close it was to Mall of Emirates and the metro station (its about 3 mins walk!) and the metro serves as easy access to the rest of the city. I would have no hesitations in recommending to anyone else in Dubai for a short city break.
