I stayed here 3 days for business purposes and attended a conference in Dubai. I arrived by taxi from the new airport, it took about 30-40 minutes to get there, decent taxi fare. When I got to Citymax the reception was filled with people, they seemed to be looking for free wifi (which is available only in the lobby). Check-in was fast and they gave me what i wanted, a room on the higher levels, pretty quiet. I wanted an upper level because on the ground floor there is a bar / club which can get pretty loud.
Room service was ok, I was too tired to go to their restaurant, decent food.
The room was small but very clean and comfortable (not sure it would be suitable for 2 people though, there was almost no closet for clothes). There is wired internet free of charge, which works pretty well, they also have WiFi in the rooms but that costs extra and it wasn't too cheap.
The breakfast was ok, not so many options but they had the basics. The restaurant was always packed with people, not easy finding a table there.
The people staying here seemed mostly from Russia and on vacation, since it was pretty warm when I went there.
An overall good stay but I would try something else the next time, maybe in a different location.
The location is decent, close to the metro but far from anything else, but I guess Dubai is pretty big.
Around the area, very close by, there are supermarkets and restaurants.
