I don't really see the point of reviewing budget hotels like the Premier Inn & Holiday Inn Express chains etc - you always know what to expect and they usually deliver - this one was no exception.
Caught the shuttle bus from DXB (turn left out of arrivals - the same stop serves all hotels so just wait for your purple bus) Checked-in in less than 2mins, the receptionist was friendly and gave us the password for the free wi-fi without us having to ask. You can see the airport from the hotel but it would be impossible to walk there due the the busy roads and lack of pavement.
The room was an adequate size and spotlessly clean, the bed was comfy with good quality cotton linen. 24hr coffee shop (Costa?) had a good choice of hot and cold snacks. The bar shut at 1am prompt.
Had an early flight so didn't get chance to try any of the other amenities. Check-out was just a matter of handing in your key, saying goodbye and catching the half hourly bus back to the airport. I'd stay there again if I needed a short layover hotel in Dubai.
