We visited the Cassells hotel a week before Christmas. The hotel is situated some miles from the main attractions of Dubai and the Creek is some miles away. It is however very close to a metro station, which gives you access to the main areas of Dubai. The main beaches are not close to the metro so the hotel runs a beach shuttle service. We had a car and the hotel provides a free underground car park. Whilst one of the smaller shopping malls and ski Dubai are close by the area is more of a business are area rather than a tourist area. We noticed a number of massage and spa business close by, exactly what the services they provided we did not enquire. There are a number of reasonably priced restaurants close by. The hotel has a nice roof top swimming pool and sunbathing area. A major disappointment was that the hotel had no bar serving alcohol, the nearest bar was in the Holiday Inn some 5 minutes walk away. We only had breakfast at the hotel which varied from not inspiring to poor. We did not use the restaurant fro any other meals preferring to eat out. The hotel was full and it struggled to cope with the small dining area at breakfast. During our stay the vast majority of the other guests were Russians. Rooms were nice and once we had a non smoking room we found it to be clean and tidy. The hotel offers a free WiFi service, but only for 30 minutes per day per room. We would recommend this hotel and would use it again, but the location is limiting.
Top Tip buy a silver metrology card for about about £4 can it comes with about £3.2 credit, which can then be topped up to provide hassle free travel on the metro and buses, it is very similar to the London's Oyster Card.
