We were a little surprised at how spread out Dubai and environs are. It took about 40 minutes and 100 AED’s to get from the airport by standard taxi at 5.45 am
We chose to stay here because it was well reviewed on all the major hotel websites and TA. We were not disappointed. We had a superior (basic) room on the 13th floor – it was large, clean and airy with a very comfortable king size bed and balcony (too hot to sit outside!). The bathroom was a bit tired, but everything worked well – the water pressure was excellent. Although the hotel was busy it was very quiet and peaceful at night.
The reception area is indeed small – and it gets very busy so maybe you’ll have a wait. We arrived at about 6.15 am after a long and tiring flight from Sydney, so imagine how pleased we were to be allocated a room after a brief wait in the Shores café where we passed the time with excellent espressos and pastries. The concierge was brilliant, helping with bookings, taxis, printing boarding passes, organising early takeaway breakfast boxes and generally providing lots of insight and advice.
The buffet breakfast is of a high standard, with plenty to choose from. The in-house bars and restaurants are somewhat generic. OK but nothing fantastic especially the food offerings. The pool is somewhat removed from the hotel – and is nothing to get excited about.
However, overall a very positive experience, and you could not fault the personalised customer service.
