Arrived late at night and was asked to pay immediately for my stay. No explanation about the hotel and its ammenities. Got room 1301 with no marina view as asked. We informed the front desk at once but they told us to wait till the next morning. Couldn't sleep due to the elevators going up and down all night long as they were next to the room. The next day we got the promise for another room, room 904, with marina view. Took the housekeeping about three hours to clean the room ? Finally I got angry, told them that I hadn't been able to sleep all night long and all of a sudden the room was clean ?
Michelle at front desk was very kind though. Finally got installed in room 904 around 4 pm , which meant that we lost one day just to get the room we booked in advance.
At the pool you need a towel card to get a beach towel. The towel card was normally provided while checking in, but they forgot to give us these at check in. The pool boy was nice, helped us with the sunbeds.
Cleaning of the room was OK.
There is a hairdresser and a small shop in the hotel. We once had dinner at the hotel's restaurant but that was nothing special.
The location is great, close to the metro station (600 meters), the Marina Mall (400 meters). Lots of Russian tourists in the hotel but that is no surprise as lots of Russian people start spending their holidays in Dubai. We booked a one bedroom apartment. Next time in Dubai I guess we will find another hotel.
