My officemates and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was a very comfortable stay. It was a first for all of us in Dubai and I must say that we had an enjoyable Arabian experience. The hotel is located in Bur Dubai and is a 15min walk to the Dubai Museum, textile market, the old souq and the terminal for the water taxi. We all stayed in twin rooms in 4th floor and I particularly got a very nice huge corner room (relative to the standard the others got) with 2 queen beds in room 412. The room has all the basic amenities: hot and cold shower, toiletries, towels, hair dryer, complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water. Bed quality is excellent with a lot of pillows and throw pillows. The room can actually fit 4 people comfortably if you ask me. What I probably don't like is that housekeeping only cleans the room every other day - the coffee mugs I used are not washed; used towels were still hung in the bathroom; toiletries are refilled every other day. Receptionists are friendly - most of them are Filipinos so we can chat with them easily. But the hotel houses 2 clubs whose entrances are in the main lobby of the hotel - an image that does not totally appeal to vacationing families since there would be girls in skimpy dresses coming in and out of the bars. I'm not too sure if the hotel is a value-for-money since it was a bonus for us but the overall experience is good. I would try other places to stay though if I ever visit Dubai again.
