This is an excellent hotel to stay in for a short break in Dubai.
The metro is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel connecting you to Dubai Airport, Deira City Centre, Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and Mall of the Emirates. The hotel itself is surrounded by fast food restaurants and plenty of shops.
This hotel is an excellent location for anyone wanting to go sightseeing in Dubai on a budget.
The room I had at the hotel was a decent size, clean, en-suite facilities and it had a comfortable bed. The staff at the hotel are friendly and very helpful.
The breakfast options at the hotel are expensive but with several restaurants within a 5 minute walk of the hotel there are plenty of alternatives.
With lots of attractions to visit in Dubai, Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Beach, Atlantis at the Palm, Dubai Mall, Dubai Creek and Mall of the Emirates as a first time visitor I didn't spend much time in the hotel.
If you get the Metro from Al Rigga to Burjman Mall the Dubai Big Bus Tours go from there (Blue Tour) to Jumeirah Beach visiting Jumeirah Beach, Burj Al Arab and Atlantis at the Palm.
Overall this is a great hotel for a first time visitor to Dubai wanting to explore the city.
The 5 minute walk to the Metro your gateway to Dubai and it's surroundings of shops and restaurants make it ideal for the budget traveller.
